All right, soccer junkies. Time to dust off your cleats and wash your jerseys, because the first screenshots and details for FIFA 13
have surfaced on the world wide web. Here's the rundown:
David Rutter, who produces FIFA 13
as well as the rest of the franchise, has stated that FIFA 13
will have many new improvements, with five significant ones: First Touch Control, Player Impact, Complete Dribble, Tactical Free-Kicks and Attacking AI.
They want to make ball control much more realistic. To do this, they're taking into account the speed, strength and height of the ball as well as how good your player is.
Player Impact has also received an upgrade, as the company hopes to be rid of all the bugs and bad animations that "plagued" the previous games in the series.
You can no longer dribble simply by changing directions, and you have new free-kick techniques, such as being able to fake a kick in one direction but quickly pass to a different teammate.
Lastly, the AI has been massively improved, choosing better paths to run on and will better guess what moves you're going to be making. They're also offensively smarter, such as moving with the offside line of your defenders.
Excited yet? It gets even better. Here we have not one, not two, but SIX screenshots of the game to give you an idea of gameplay and how the graphics have improved. Feast your eyes on these puppies:FIFA 13
is due out sometime in 2012, hopefully in the September-October region. So what do you all think of the details and screenshots?
