FIFA 14 on next-gen is not what you expect. It’s not what you thought of in your wildest dreams and it’s not even encompassing what you wanted improved upon from EA’s previous attempt at perfecting the footie genre. If what EA say in this new FIFA 14 next-gen trailer is to be believed, it’s set to be so much better. Year on year we get incremental updates to the game; updated kits, more beautified blades of grass and that sort of thing but now, on next-gen it looks like EA Sports have finally accomplished something substantial. You can watch the new trailer discussing it all after the break.
Ever thought that the realistic football simulation of FIFA 13 just wasn’t enough? Did you spend more time complaining about the lack of lifelike virtual footballing animations than you did about letting in yet another goal to cheat character Lionel Messi? Apparently you’re not alone as EA are improving their football game even more with FIFA 14, citing ‘Pure Shot’ and ‘Real Ball Physics’ as the main features here, making us wonder that if this is the best then what the hell were we all playing before?
In FIFA 14, the players are reportedly going to have a few more smarts in their AI noggins than they did in FIFA 13, according to two members of the dev team in this new trailer. Smarter thinking is going to lead to an even more impressive range of goals and if you’re eagle eyed enough you’ll be able to see that even the airflow around the ball is taken into account with each shot.
Effectively, what EA are trying to say is that FIFA 14 will be ‘much, much better’ than its predecessor, and from what we’ve seen so far, we can only agree with them. You can watch the new FIFA 14 trailer after the break.
