EA Sports Announce Ignite and Xbox One Games

By Ellis Spice, 3 years ago
During the reveal event for the Xbox One, Andrew Wilson of EA Sports announced a partnership between EA and Microsoft that will mean four games will be coming to the Xbox One using their new engine, EA Sports Ignite; NBA LIVE 14, EA SPORTS UFC, Madden NFL 25 and FIFA 14.

According to EA, Ignite will allow for human-like intelligence and a life-like ability to change speed and direction in rich and dynamic stadiums and arenas. This is possible thanks to four times more calculations per second over the engine used on the Xbox 360 and ten times more animation depth and detail.

Don't just hear it from me though, as here are the trailers EA showed off at the reveal event:









Andrew Wilson, Executive Vice President and Head of EA SPORTS, had this to say about EA Sports Ignite:

Through years of investment and innovation, we have built technology across EA SPORTS to create a game engine that will deliver stunning accuracy, realism and experiences that we previously could only dream about. With EA SPORTS IGNITE and the power of next generation consoles, our games will come alive—with more authenticity, more emotion, more connectivity, and more fun.
NBA Live 14, Madden NFL 25, and FIFA 14 are set to release on both the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One later this year, with EA SPORTS UFC coming in 2014.
