FIFA 14 Video Tackles Improvements to Shooting and Ball Physics

Posted August 6th, 2013 at 11:00 am


EA Sports has released a new video featuring footage and producer discussion for FIFA 14. The focus is on two of the very first features that were announced this year back in April with Pure Shot and Real Ball Physics. 

Pure Shot
The best goals are a combination of perfect timing, anticipation, and great positioning. Fans will be rewarded for all three in FIFA 14.  Players now adjust their approach angle when the shot is started looking for a more suitable angle for hitting the ball. They also understand the phases of shooting and will adjust their stride and pace to hit the ball. New shot types include pure strikes, as well as off-balance and rushed shots.

Real Ball Physics
Along with changes to the shooting system, the ball in FIFA 14 acts as it would in real world football, thanks to authentic ball physics based on new formulas which dictate the flight path and trajectory of a shot. Both were overhauled for FIFA 14 to match how the ball moves in space. This opens the door to more shot options. Players will now be able to strike the ball with force from distance, drill low rising shots with accuracy, and blast dipping, or swerving shots. There are also turbulence effects. None of this was ever possible in FIFA 13. Pure Shot and Real Ball Physics are bound to make every shot attempt feel real and, when players connect with the perfect strike, exhilarating. Players will truly experience the emotion of scoring great goals.
