Gamescom 2012: FIFA 13 Trailer And Screens

By Kendrene,
Gamescom 2012 is well underway and could not miss the appointment. The yearly edition of FIFA strives to be the best one yet, including 30 leagues, 500 officially licensed clubs, and more than 15,000 players. Attacking players intelligence has been revamped, allowing your teammates to better read the game and break down even the strongest defence. Players will now have complete control over the dribbling mechanics, allowing for total freedom of movement when in possession of the ball.

A new system eliminates near-perfect ball control for every player by creating uncertainty when receiving difficult balls. Poor passes are harder to control, enabling defenders to capitalize on errant balls and poor touches. The era of players that have the ball glued to their feet is hopefully at an end.

Furthermore, the all new Skills Game mode, will test gamers dominance of the fundamental skills, through increasingly difficult challenges and situations.

The most anticipated (or dreaded) new feature is probably the Kinect integration. Below you will find details on how Kinect will change the way you play the game.

• Voice Commands – Administer your squad the way real-world managers organize their clubs during a match. Use voice commands to instantly activate tactics, change formations, or initiate substitutions, and enjoy the strategic advantage of managing your club without pausing the game.
• On Pitch Commands – Think, react and play like a professional footballer utilising voice commands on the pitch in Be A Pro mode. Shout for a pass, send a teammate on a run or call for a shot the way real footballers communicate on the pitch.
• Referee Feedback – Referees and linesmen are influenced by what they hear. Coarse language directed towards an official may be mentioned by commentators or influence a referee’s strictness and decision-making around fouls and bookings. Plus, storylines will develop in Career Mode when players and managers let their emotions get the better of them.
The virtual version of Lionel Messi has also appeared at the event, showing off some skills in the following screens, and trailer.
