A look at dribbling and team styles for FIFA 18

Posted July 27th, 2017 at 7:15 am

The first promotional push for FIFA 18 was largely centered on year two of The Journey. Now EA Sports is starting to get into the meat of gameplay details with two trailers that spotlight increased player personality, overhauled dribbling, and more authentic team styles. 

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. Motion capture techniques used to record Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and other top players in full flight. RPMT 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!
