FIFA World to launch new game engine

EA Sports' free-to-play PC title will launch a new engine, offering a more authentic football experience.

EA announced today that FIFA World would launch a new game engine.

The engine will give players a more realistic football experience, driven by live content and real players from official clubs from over 30 official leagues.

With Smarter AI, teammates will be able to adapt their own play styles with better attacking runs in the opponents half. Improvements to the Defensive AI will also see better marking and run tracking.

The First Touch Control and Complete Dribbling abilities will make offensive play more authentic and an improved Player Impact Engine will see more real world physics incorporated into the game.

Improvements to Keyboard and Mouse Controls and Tactical Free Kicks have also been made.

A “number of updates” will also be released in the coming months with new features such as video sharing, roster updates, new kits, boots and club badges, and the Turkish Super Lig.

The free-to-play PC title will also feature over 16,000 players, 600 clubs, and online mode and single-player mode.

“In FIFA World we have created a live service platform that allows us to fundamentally change the game by adding new features and modes through regular updates, all while keeping fans engaged with dynamic live content that follows the real world of football,” said Mike McCade, Executive Producer.

“After almost a year of working closely with our fans we are very excited for our biggest update yet – a brand new game engine.”

In May, the Beta launched worldwide and saw more than 3.5 million registrations from over 180 countries. More than 45 million matches were played.

Over 20 updates to the title have been made based on fan feedback from the Beta, including gamepad and keyboard-only controls and Accomplishments, a new feature that captures storylines from the real world of football as the happen, challenging and rewarding players to re-create these moments in the game.

Players can start building their clubs via the FIFA World website.
