FIFA 14 info blowout: screenshots, trailers, feature list, more

EA has officially announced FIFA 14 and we have a ton of new information on the game.

The game contains a lot of new features like Pure Shot, brand-new ball physics system and more. Pure Shot benefits finishers with players having to adjust their stride and approach angle to find the best position for scoring a goal.

Well-hit balls are said to be more rewarding, and there are new shot types like pure strikes, off-balance and rushed shots. The new ball physics system also “determines the trajectories of balls, enabling players to kick the ball with force from distance, drill low rising shots with accuracy, and blast dipping or turbulent shots, just like real players.”

“FIFA 14 will play the way great matches are contested with build up through midfield, tension throughout the match as chances are created, and incredible finishing. Opportunities in FIFA 14 will be rewarding and great goals will look stunning,” executive producer of FIFA 14, David Rutter Revealed.

The career mode has been revamped and there’s a Global Scouting Network.

  • Protect The Ball will enable players to fend-off and block defenders from the ball while dribbling at any speed, or out-muscle opponents for position before receiving the pass, then turn defenders to carve out opportunities. Teammate Intelligence has been improved on both sides of the ball.
  • New decision-making logic delivers tighter, smarter marking and improved run tracking where defenders recognize opportunities to provide support and win back possession, while attacking players have new ways to outsmart their opponents by creating space for themselves, running along the backline and checking their pace.
  • Major changes to ball control add new tools to win the midfield battles. Sprint Dribble Turns enable players to turn in every direction at sprint speed while preserving momentum, delivering the control and confidence to take on defenders one-on-one.
  • Variable Dribble Touches introduces variety on touches when sprinting. Skilled players will have better touch and more control when sprinting with the ball.
