FIFA 15 News Post



EA released their FIFA 15 trailer just ahead of their E3 conference. The trailer shows plenty of gameplay, including the new Emotional Intelligence which is going to model the emotional state of all 22 players on the pitch.

FIFA 15 players now have a range of emotions that evolve contextually throughout the game based on interactions with opponents and teammates. Each player has an attitude or feeling towards everyone else on the pitch and will react accordingly during the game’s events – frustration after missed passes, anger with hard tackles, and excitement when chances are taken are just some of the over 600 reaction animations that could tell the story of the game.

“We want our fans to feel the highs and lows of the drama that is football, and experience the emotional rollercoaster that plays out during a match,” said David Rutter, Executive Producer, EA SPORTS FIFA. “We’re now able to immerse you in the game and let the story of the match unfold based on new commentary, crowd activity, and the natural reactions of the players, which make every game unique.”

The turf of the pitch will evolve with every step, plant, or slide -- resulting in a more alive pitch than ever before. For the first time ever, the FIFA development team utilized physically based rendering to bring atmospheres and players to life, further blurring the line between the virtual and real world of football. The new rendering works in combination with a new player model and rigging system to make every athlete look and feel athletic, lean, and true to their natural form. FIFA 15 is played on a Living Pitch where boots and hard slide tackles will leave their mark as each match progresses; players will get mud and dirt on their kits. Other visual details including animated LED ad boards, corner flag and goal frame movement, and realistic atmosphere conditions will keep fans immersed in the game.

“Visually, this is the biggest step the FIFA franchise has ever taken,” said David Rutter. “We set out with the goal of creating atmosphere, players, crowds, and pitches that not only look like they do on match day, but also feel like they do when you play or watch football – it’s a level of immersion we’ve never been able to bring to the game before.”

Agility & Control builds on step-based locomotion and delivers an all new level of responsiveness and control to FIFA 15. Tuned player biomechanics cause players to react and move with balance and closer control when in possession of the ball. Precise steps and turns at low speed, and closer control at high speeds will give FIFA 15 fans more control and increased mobility when commanding players on the pitch. New stutters and strides let you cut, sprint, and explode out of turns, and run touch dribbling gives players’ personality that reflects their real self. A new ball physics system models ball movement depending on the spin and the precise contact with the ball. The accurate movement of the ball, combined with the control of the player brings a new level of realism to dribbles, touches, passes, and deflections in FIFA 15.

Off the ball, Man to Man Battles transforms defending in FIFA 15. Players now use full-body defending to separate their man from the ball, while possession tackles will reward great defending, helping defenders keep the ball close to their feet when a challenge is made. New shoulder barges, shirt pulling, and big fall physics allow fans to feel the battle making dispossessing opponents more rewarding than ever.

Opponents and Teammates in FIFA 15 now make decisions just like real athletes. New to FIFA 15, players now have short, medium, and long term objectives that they decide upon as a team and execute using Team Tactics. If a team is up by a goal, they might park the bus, or if they are down a goal, they might try to get it in the mixer to be more direct in attack and secure a last gasp winner. This, along with other Team Tactics and mentality choices, creates emergent and realistic gameplay moments that become part of every game.

FIFA 15 is scheduled to release on September 23rd for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Check out the trailer and be sure to comment with what you think!

Looks cool, I wish EA would break away from these slo-mo heavy sizzle reels and show actual game play of 2 people playing each other, but I get that that probably won't look near as pretty as these videos do.

Group celebrations are in! Been waiting on these since they went to the user celebrations. Last goal by Messi is what gave it away.

Day one buy for me.

Not going to lie, I was hoping for a slightly bigger jump in graphics. Looks exactly like 14 to me.

Looks good but not real to me. Oddly the players almost have a resident evil 5 zombie look to them IMO.

Pretty sure they marketed all this last year and we ended up with a port of the old-gen FIFA with awful gameplay.

Here is hoping they step up to the plate this year on all accounts. Especially with PES waiting in the wings with a full year of development on the Fox Engine. Going to be an interesting year for Soccer.

FIFA 14 is generally considered to have the best gameplay of all the new-gen sports titles. What did you not like about it?

You're not alone on that. After seeing the NHL trailer, this disappointed me. I'm sure the game will play great though.

That really isn't saying a whole lot.

Fixed xD

I also feel the same. Same graphics (cartoonish) als always and not just with the FIFA-Series (also NHL, NBA and NFL...).

What about dynamic weather and lighting? I want the rain to stop and start or the sun to go down during games.

Yeah I'm not a fan at all of their art style.

The only thing I care about at this point, will EA have player ID, and will teams play like they do in real life? I want to see Messi dribble like Messi and so forth, tiki taka passing of Barcelona and it goes on.
 
# 15 The_Wise_One @ 06/09/14 04:56 PM
For those that play FUT, pre ordering grants you Messi for 5 days. May mean a new loan feature within the transfer market

Looks great. But I will keep it simple - if they have creation centre this year, it will be a day one buy. If not, I will unfortunately be skipping.

Dee some first person in there? Please, PRETTY PLEASE Let there be some first person soccer.

Seems..incremental.

Graphics are buns as always, nothing that I didnt see coming from EA, I wonder if the over top lobs are still abusive.
