FIFA 14 will bring “the emotion of scoring great goals” to PS3, PC, and Xbox 360 this fall, EA announced today. It refines the formula of EA Sports’ past soccer games with “Pure Shot” shooting “so players have the intelligence to adjust their stride and approach angle to find the best position for hitting the back of the net.”
There are more new (and newly named) systems involved. “Protect the Ball” lets players block defenders while dribbling; “Teammate Intelligence” is self-explanatory; “Sprint Dribble Turns” allows extra maneuverability while sprinting; “Variable Dribble Touch” adds finer control on dribbling.
Of course, if you’d rather exert your control before the match even starts, you can do so with the new “Global Scouting Network,” a career mode in which you build a network of professional scouts.
