An All-New Animation System Brings Individual Players to Life in FIFA 18

EA Sports has brought in an all-new animation system for FIFA 18, making your favorite players move and act as they do on the pitch. In their latest blog, EA goes over real player motion technology, player personality, dribbling overhaul and their new crossing control.

FIFA 18 is scheduled to release on September 29, or 3 days earlier, if you pre-order the Ronaldo or Icon Edition. EA Access subscribers can play the FIFA 18 trial on September 21.

REAL PLAYER MOTION TECHNOLOGY

The all-new, game-changing animation system utilizes pose trajectory matching on every frame to deliver the most responsive and fluid gameplay ever. We used new motion capture techniques to record Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and other top players in full flight. Real Player Motion Technology brings that data to life to ensure gameplay accurately represents the reality of football with players feeling and moving just as they do on the real pitch.

PLAYER PERSONALITY

Ronaldo’s signature free kick, Sterling’s unique turns and Griezmann’s technique. You’ll recognize them all in FIFA 18 as for the first time ever players’ real-world motions, size and attributes inform how they move around the pitch.

DRIBBLING OVERHAUL

New dribbling mechanics let you run at defenders with confidence using defined touches, tighter turns and more explosive transitions to attack than ever before!

NEW CROSSING CONTROL

Whip the ball in to the spot, lob it in from the byline to the attacker in space, or play the searching cross that finds the run from deep. New crossing controls give you more options from the wing!

  1. So am I understanding that the 'FIFA 18 trial' is the demo, and only available for EA Access subscribers?  Trying to reserve my criticism here, but IF they are essentially now charging for the right to play demos, that's a new low even for them.
    I mean I like FIFA a lot, more than PES even in some aspects, but stop with the shameless cash grabs already.  Hopefully I'm just misinterpreting this.

    I wouldn't look at it as a cash grab for demos because of the amount of content you get with the membership:
    -$30 for a year
    -10 hour trial versions for nearly every EA game which are available about 5 days before the game launches. The trials are also more than your standard demo because you have access to the entire game, not just select few teams and modes.
    -access to a "vault" of games. Some of the titles include all 17 sports games, Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, Battlefront, and more.
    -you also get an extra 10% off games
    Not to come off as an EA spokesman but it is a really good value if you are big into EA games.
    I feel ya ScottyP, I'd probably consider it if I had an XB1.  Playing the old games isn't really something I care about though.  Once the trophy is handed out IRL I'm already shipping that bad boy back to Amazon.
    I was just mainly concerned that the demo might not be available on PS4 because they wanted to charge for it on XB1.  Sounds like that's probably not the case.
