FIFA 14 announced for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC

EA has revealed the first details for FIFA 14, which the company has officially confirmed for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

No next-gen support was confirmed, but EA says it will reveal FIFA 14 for additional platforms "in the months ahead."

The main changes to this year's take on the annual football franchise includes a new ball physics engine and a feature called Pure Shot. Pure Shot is designed to allow players to adjust their stride and approach angles, with the game now incorporating off-balance and rushed shots.

EA also says it has added the ability to maintain momentum while turning in any direction while sprinting, that there is more variety on touches when sprinting, and says that the intelligence of the AI has been improved.

A new feature, which EA calls Protect The Ball, is also designed to give attacking players more ways to block defenders while dribbling.

The game's career mode will also receive an update, allowing players to manage a global network of talent scouts and featuring a redesigned hub.

Elsewhere, FIFA Ultimate Team will be updated, a new online mode will be implemented, and social tracker Football Club will make a return.

No exact FIFA 14 release date was provided by EA, but FIFA games traditionally launch in September.

Last year's title, FIFA 13, received an 8.0 in its GameSpot review.

again same crap, you have come up with nothing new or distinct these years EA, your career mode has been nothing fun except that one month transfer season, your tiny improvements to gameplay isn't going to help you anyway.....PES has vast career mode fun, so you just pray PES doesn't make drastic improvements to their gameplay this year making their robotic gameplay fluid [that's the only drawback of PES], if they does, EA you will be weeping :-( for your sales!

even though it's hardly update i'm still getting it, people don't notice that ea don't edit fifa much because it's near perfection and updates would likely take a step back, although more likely storylines like corruptedness would be a good edit or be a ref

After getting Fifa 13 and noticing that EA actually took a step backwards with it compared to Fifa 12... I'm definitely going to be waiting and seeing on this one. Virtual pro in 12 was really fun and actually was something to work towards, but then in 13 it was career mode exclusive. Total waste. 

I'm also starting to get really sick with how slow and clunky the menus are. The over the top advertising of their own products (ultimate team and card packs)  No EA... I don't want to waste money on virtual cards that you're trying to peddle. How about you leave me alone and let me play the game I spent £40 on? 

Think it's  time I took a seriously look back at Pro Evo.  It's been a while since I have so surely they've made some good improvements.

I haven't had the time to play Fifa 13 due to uni stuff and my Fifa 12 pro player is still alive and kicking, this is fucked up!

Is news news if it is predictable? Hey guys, there will be a Halo 5.

Watched Nepenthez's video on Youtube, he got a glance at some gameplay for the new features, and what he said was pretty interesting. As a massive (and pretty good) player one or two things interest me about the new features.

The pure shot is going to mean more shots cause the ball to move side to side and up and down when hit with extreme power and bend with a long shot taker. It will make shooting easier from difficult angles instead of having to manually face the goal sometimes risking that extra touch or just sacrificing power.

 Also there's the new dribbling feature which is going to make sprinting with the ball a lot more difficult and unpredictable when on the ball with a fast but not very technical player. My first thought what "finally people won't be able to pace abuse as much, especially in Ultimate Team" but then I remembered last year's hype... "first touch control will make it far more difficult to pace abuse, even in Ultimate Team!" That didn't happen.

 I just hope they improve the defensive AI more than anything else. I know defenders make decisions on a frame by frame basis, which is why most of them decide to pause suddenly when a certain over-the-top ball is played, before then continuing to sprint after the long-gone 90+ pace attacker, whose first touch was perfect considering he has 75 ball control..

 Don't let me down again EA.

Jeez new ball physics eh? Well i don't know if it will do much since most people I play online use auto settings :/. Besides can't do much when everyone is using Real Madrid, Barcelona, or Spain.

FIFA 14!?  NO WAY!? WOW!  That's outta the blue!  (Sorry, I'm in a scarcastic mood this evening. ;) )  Do they really even have to announce  sporting games anymore.  Isn't it a given, like death and taxes?

Ok,MS and EA made a deal about exclusive content in the near future!
I bet the X360 version of FIFA 14 will have 11 players per team,all other plattforms must deal with 10 players lol
*end of joking*

The Pure Shot looks pretty good. About time they actually put effort into the next game.

What's the deal with releasing a FIFA yearly, it's not like you can change a lot in a football game, it will always be football, just buy the game every 2 or 3 years. Or don't buy it, but FIFA 13 was a great game.

@Imperiacommando ... Have you seen Messi and Ronaldo IRL? They're actually that good... Just because the people you play online are boring and play as the best teams available (which Madrid and Barca are...) you can't ask them to make the game unrealistic to try and deter people from online. 

Just isn't going to happen.

@silvergol I pray so because as always I wanna get a football game every year, don't have much expectations with fifa 14 this year except some tweaks here and there

@CptRexKramer As much as a given that they'll be using the exact same game engine, updated rosters, and charging premium price. 

Ayato_Kamina_1

@Shantmaster_K It's a TINY improvement. And it's the way they've been plugging it for years and players like you are starting to just accept it. Is a tiny bit of improved physics to the ball really worth paying for a premium priced game? Never mind all the flaws in the game that people have been complaining about for years, or the mundane and carbon copied game modes from previous games.

@R2C25 @95164 It's terrible. And it's been terrible for the last 5 years. But this year you'll be able to have a scouting network... so clearly it'll be amazing this year *rolls eyes*

@95164 @TheSkyrimStatue Because every year there's the same flaws in the game. The clunky menus, the boring and unimaginative game modes. Look at virtual pro on 13, it was rubbish compared to 12. They actually took a step back because people found a way to exploit it online. Instead of fixing the issue so people can enjoy it online they decided to render it completely useless.
