Producers Nick Channon and David Rutter highlight how Pro Instincts in FIFA 14 allow players to be fully aware of their surroundings. Anticipate a tackle, react accordingly and use body position to win back the ball.
For the first time, players in FIFA 14 will be able to anticipate and respond with human-reactions through Pro Instincts. Players now have full awareness and context of what is unfolding around them - transforming physical play in the beautiful game.The EA SPORTS IGNITE engine on Xbox One and PS4 features Future Physics technology that enables players to quickly analyze potential outcomes of what is about to occur around them. Players have human-like awareness, anticipation, instincts and most importantly, reaction times. All 22 players on the field now make intelligent decisions like they would in a real match, such as anticipating tackles, avoiding tacklers or bracing for physical challenges.
Some examples of new FIFA 14 player movements made possible by Pro Instincts are:
- Leg avoidance: players are able to skip over slide tackles and outstretched legs
- Players can grab limbs when pushing/pulling
- Arm locks while jostling for possession
- Greater variety and new types of seal-outs
- Bracing for ground contact when losing balance and falling
On FIFA 14 for Xbox One and PS4 players make decisions four times faster than on previous consoles. Decision-making is now based on multiple frames per second, resulting in players that are more aware of their surroundings and react accordingly. Depending on the situation, an attacking player may check his run, back into a defender or brace for an incoming tackle. During a sprint, a player may feint or leap over a sliding defender while still maintaining possession of the ball. Defenders will recognize more opportunities to support and pressure the opposition to help create balance.
