EA Sports have announced a ton of details about FIFA 14, so we’ve broken it down to give you the answers you need.

Watch the following video for a walk-through of the new features:

Key features:

  • Precision Movement—Now every step counts as players plant, pivot, cut, and shift momentum with the agility and explosiveness of real footballers. Player acceleration and deceleration is more realistic with a game-changing effect on gameplay.  Players feel more grounded, agile and athletic, and manage their momentum with distinct foot plants and push-offs, bringing the authentic motion of professional footballers to FIFA 14.
  • Pure Shot— Shooting has been transformed. Players have the intelligence to adjust their stride and approach angle to find the best position for hitting the back of the net. Well-hit balls feel satisfying and goals are rewarding.  As well as quality strikes, players can now shoot while off balance or rushed.
  • Real Ball Physics— Strike the ball with more force and finesse. Realistic ball physics now determines the trajectories of balls in game, enabling players to strike the ball with force from distance, drill low rising shots with accuracy, and blast dipping or swerving shots, just like real footballers.
  • Protect The Ball— Dominate midfield and dictate the tempo of a match. Fend-off and block defenders from the ball while dribbling at any speed. Protect the ball from opponents to control play through midfield and dictate the pace of the match.  Plus, out-muscle opponents for position before receiving the ball, then turn defenders to carve out opportunities.
  • Teammate Intelligence— Better decision-making delivers tighter, smarter marking and improved run tracking. Defenders recognize opportunities to provide support and win back possession. Attacking players have new ways to outsmart their opponents and break down tighter, more intelligent defences by creating space for themselves, running along the backline and checking their pace.
  • Sprint Dribble Turns— Utilize quick, explosive cuts and turns to beat defenders one-on-one while sprinting with the ball. Players can move in any direction, preserving their natural momentum and maintaining possession of the ball.
  • Variable Dribble Touches— The First Touch Control of dribbling varies a player’s touch when dribbling with pace.  Skilled players have the touch and control to stand out while less skilled players will experience fewer perfect touches and more uncertainty dribbling, creating opportunities for defenders to win back possession, and placing emphasis on building play through midfield.
  • 2nd Chance Tackles—The tackling zone has been extended to enable defenders to combine different types of tackles, recover from missed tackles quickly, and have a second chance to compete for the ball in any tackling situation.
  • Curling Lofted Through Balls—Players have the ability to curl the ball around opponents to deliver precision passes to teammates or send the ball into space.
  • Skill Games–A competitive practice mode that enable players to learn or master the fundamental skills necessary to compete at FIFA 14.  Become a better player, faster, no matter what your skill level, competing against yourself or friends in all-new mini-games.
  • Career Mode— Search for talent year-round with the new Global Scouting Network that brings the world of professional scouting to life. Develop and refine your own scouting network. Evaluate footballers to uncover the attributes of players who could bolster your squad during the transfer windows. A new hub delivers easy navigation, fewer interruptions and live scouting reports.
  • Complete Authenticity—All the authenticity EA SPORTS is known for with officially licensed clubs, leagues and more than 15,000 players.

Additional features will be revealed in the months leading to the game’s release on September 24 in North America and September 27 in Europe.

  1. Huw Roma says:

    Looks pretty much like last year, which was a far inferior version compared to FIFA 12. I wish EA would make a retro World Cup game, with all the tounaments from 1970-90, featuring all the players, stadiums and original groups.

  2. NeilO says:

    A Copa Libertadores or CONCACAF champions league-type of continental trophy has to be added to the game.

  3. Mekias says:

    They sound like good changes. We’ll have to see if they can pull it off and not break the system.

    The scouting seems interesting as I love taking a League 2 team and climbing the ladder through scouting. I just hope they change some of the templates they’ve been using. An “Attacker” has good finishing but is never fast or strong. Always hated that.

    Also hope they remove the thing where elite players would retire and get re-born on the free agency lists for anyone to grab. Occasionally they’d also come back as a 6’9″ beast with ungodly physical abilities.
