It looks like 2K Sports will have a face scanning solution similar to EA's Game Face technology. Users will be able to scan their face into the game with their Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles.

Users can play NBA 2K15 with a player face that looks just like them. Check out the video at KTVU.

Ronnie2K and LD2K hosted another Twitch stream last night (you can watch the archive here), as they discussed the new badge system and some other things mixed in. The team has decided to go away from Signature Skills.

LD2K pointed out quite a few details from the stream on Twitter and we have listed some of them below. A blog will arrive soon with more details.
  • NBA 2K15: 77 total badges. 28 of them are categorized as "personality badges" effecting hot/cold streaks, ambient animations & facial exp's.
  • The rest are categorized as "Skill Badges" which have 3 tiers - Bronze, Silver, Gold.
  • These are categorized as outside scoring, inside scoring, athleticism, playmaking, and rebounding.
  • NBA players can have up to 70 badges and skill badges are not limited to one tier. LeBron currently has the most with 47 total badges.
  • In MyCAREER, badges are EARNED based on your play, how you respond to situations in scenes and how good your regular attributes are.
  • NBA Players can't have all 77 badges because some conflict (ie: a player can't have both ALPHA Dog and BETA Dog).
  • 6,000 new animations, deep defensive settings, new shot system & streamlined gameplay w/ legacy issues addressed...
  • Defense is also categorized in the skill badges.
  • This will highlight role players better than ever! Paired with the game play improvements &ratings system, badges are phenomenal in NBA 2K15
  • The crowd will erupt during big plays and 4th quarter games are absolutely bananas. One of my fav. thing about NBA 2K15. Adrenaline rush!
  • The crowd will empty out of the arena during blowouts... Empty seats means you need to step your game up!
They have plans to release something that will break the Internet later today.

Front Page Sports Football is set to release on September 25th for PC gamers on Steam. For those that missed the first announcement in early August, don't be mistaken, this isn't a remake of the Sierra Online versions many of us played in the 90's.

Here are some of the features and new screenshots. For more, visit the official website.
  • One of the most advanced management game on PC for US Football
  • Powerful tactics edition tool: More than 2 300 plays available!
  • Revival of a mythical video game from the 90’s
  • Games replayable in 2D and 3D
  • A wide range of statistics to analyze
Read the full press release below.

The most iconic name in Football sims, Front Page Sports Football, is warmed up and taking to the field September 25, and today we offer you a quick look at how to plan and execute your strategy for a game using Gameplan and Playbook.

Front Page Sports Football allows you to prepare for your next opponent in two ways; delving through a team or individual player's stats, such as rushing and passing and much more; and by watching your opponents' previous games in 2D or 3D to get inside their tactics.

Armed with this knowledge, you can customize your Gameplan with plays to hammer at your opponent's weakness. On the field, your players will choose the best play for the situation from the Gameplan, but the best coaches know how to adapt, changing the Gameplan on the fly to maximize an advantage or respond to a crisis.

Your Playbook is a handpicked collection of 80 offensive and 60 defensive strategies drawn from over 2,300 plays. But, a play is only as strong as the athletes on the field. Effectiveness hinges not only on a player's position and stats, but also his previous experience with the play.

Each player has over 20 stats capable of influencing plays and the overall gameplan, including weight, agility, speed, morale, and even fame. Of course, proper training is critical, and it's up to you whether you push for quick and short-lived gains for the next game, or focus on developing better overall players for the seasons to come.

What's New in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team? Well quite a bit really.

EA Sports has removed the cover from FIFA 15 Ultimate Team and there's a lot of changes under the hood including concept squads, friendly seasons, loaning players, more legends, and a new base attribute system.
  • Concept Squads - Think you know what would make a winning team? Concept Squads is a powerful new squad planning tool that allows you to plan future squads using the entire FUT player catalogue.
  • Loan Players - In FUT 15 you’ll be able to try out some of the most highly sought after players in the game right away by signing them to your club on loan! Sign loan players for the set amount of matches and use them wisely during their loan contract’s duration to win a big Tournament Final or get the decisive win to clinch a Season Title.
  • New Legends on Xbox - Achieve greatness on the pitch with the legends of the past and the stars of today! Check out the new Legends who will join the 41 from last year on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
  • New Base Attribute - PHY, which stands for “Physical”, is the new sixth base attribute in FIFA 15 that will be featured on FUT player items. It is a measure of key physical traits such as Strength, Stamina, and Jumping. PHY is important to FIFA 15 and FUT because it will help you determine a player’s ability to win physical battles across the pitch and keep their fitness throughout.
What do you think of the changes to FUT?

EA has updated us officially in a post on their forums about upcoming security measures being taken to protect FIFA players online in the hugely popular FUT mode:

Quote:
"Hello, FIFA fans.

Today we’d like to share a few in-game changes that are coming to FUT 15 as part of our ongoing initiative to improve security and the FIFA 15 experience. This is related to our recent article regarding coin selling and buying: http://help.ea.com/en/article/fighti...can-stay-safe/.

Trade Offers
We’ll be removing Trade Offers from FIFA 15 Ultimate Team.

Although some honest players used this feature to trade with friends, it became one of the methods used by coin sellers to sell and move coins. Account phishers also abused Trade Offers by moving stolen players and coins after wrongfully gaining access to unsuspecting FUT player accounts.

This will also address “bid bumping”, where people would try and trick others into bidding far more than they wanted for a player item.

It was a tough decision, but this is the right step towards improving security, showing cheaters the red card, and keeping FUT safe for all FIFA fans.

Transfer Targets
The maximum number of Transfer Targets in FUT 15 will be set 50 player items after utilizing the EAS FC unlockable boosts. This means that you will be allowed to bid on up to 50 players at a time.

Origin Login Verification
Origin Login Verification is an extra layer of security that protects your FUT account from being accessed outside of your home console and PC. In order to ensure increased security for our fans, Origin Login Verification will be mandatory in the near future before you access the FUT 15 Web App. Find out how to set it up here: <http://help.ea.com/en/article/fifa-1...-verification/ >

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all matters regarding security in FUT. Stay tuned on Twitter for any further information, and thanks for your understanding as we work to improve your experience with FIFA 15.

Thanks,
The FIFA Team"

The handheld mobile version of FIFA 15 this year is getting a slimmer focus, but its one which you probably won't mind since you were already playing Ultimate Team on your handheld device anyways.

This year, EA is offering both FIFA Ultimate Team or Matches of the Week as the way to play FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Mobile. EA is also bringing new ways to play the game, which include Quick Simulation, Classic or Casual Controls, and new controller support.

Here's some info straight from EA:
  • Quick Simulation will make its debut on FIFA 15 Ultimate Team, giving fans complete control of their squad while a match plays out quickly on your tablet or phone. Fans will be able to control the mentality, effort, and approach of your entire team in a managerial experience during a Quick Simulation match. It puts fans in the manager’s seat and gives them an aerial view of the pitch so you can see player trends and adjust on the fly.
  • This season, fans can choose from Casual or Classic Controls - with all new through-ball and tactical dribbling options. Through ball will allow you to send your teammates through on goal with a tap of a button or tap twice on the screen to activate Tactical Dribbling - give your players greater control on the ball.
  • And to improve the gameplay experience, fans now have the option to use a number of different controllers in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team (mobile). The following controllers are compatible with FIFA 15 Ultimate Team on mobile devices. List here.
