A few reasons you’ll want to play FIFA 13 & new screenshots
As we get closer to the EURO 2012 Championship, the country is becoming footie mad and all you FIFA fans can rejoice as the first few details on FIFA 13 have been released and it looks like the development team at EA Canada are working hard to improve upon the last game.
David Rutter, Executive Producer for FIFA 13 said;
“We are perfecting the best sports game in the world with innovations that capture all the drama and unpredictability of real-world football. These are game-changing innovations that will revolutionize our artificial intelligence, dribbling, ball control and collisions to create a true battle for possession across the entire pitch, and deliver freedom and creativity in attack.”
One of the biggest issues noted about FIFA 12 was the physics engine. The engine that enabled players to physically interact with each other more both had good and bad elements. The guys in EA Canada have said they are tweaking it for FIFA 13 to try and remove some of those awkward player interactions that plagued the previous game, while still keeping the physicality of the game.
This year’s version will also feature a refined ball control mechanic, meaning it takes a little more skill to dribble and move the ball based on your player’s strength, speed, technical skills and even the height of the ball itself. The new game will also allow you to face the opposing team, while finding new and creative ways to beat them 1-on-1. Oh and 2 new pass types will be available to you as well.
The guys have also announced that further work on the games AI, which is going to reportable be the most sophisticated AI ever achieved for the FIFA franchise. All-new Attacking Intelligence will now enable the game to analyse space, work harder and smarter to break down defences, and think two steps ahead of gamers. Apparently the game now possess the intelligence to create, curve, or alter runs to capitalize on openings as they occur, make runs that pull defenders out of position to open passing channels for teammates, and better position themselves for new attacking opportunities.
FIFA 13 will also feature:
- Improved Career Mode with major changes developed in response to requests from the most passionate fans of the franchise.
- New features to enhance the massive EA SPORTS FIFA online offering, including improvements to the wildly popular Head-To-Head Seasons mode
- Multiple new features and benefits to EA SPORTS Football Club, the live service that is the heartbeat of FIFA
- Complete authenticity with more than 500 officially licensed clubs.
