Although FIFA 13 did not seem to incur any changes of extreme proportions, it will feature some upgrades that should sit well with the avid gamer. However, there will be a plethora of alterations that will add more to the already popular virtual football masterpiece. The highly-anticipated game from EA Sports will be available in the U.S. for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on Sept. 25th.
The most obvious of changes set for the game is the First Touch Mechanic, which will take some time for gamers to grow accustomed to. In earlier versions of the games, far passes almost always went to their recipient. However, the latest alteration will now allow only the players considered highly-skilled to receive the ball on any of the challenging plays.
There will also more of a scientific factor involved in the game play, as speed, weather and positioning opponents will all effect the gamer's level of success. Another words, if one attempts to compete against a strong striker as an average defender, it will be more likely that a turnover to the opposing team will occur.
The attacking Al has been switched up in FIFA 13 as well. Players are now more mobile, as they can slow down and bend during their runs to stay on side as a formation of attack approaches the box. During free kicks, players now have more choices in both the attack and defense modes against their opponents.
The gamer will even have more instant control over the ball near the player's feet, courtesy of FIFA Street's dribbling engine. The collision engine also lets players body check and bump their opponents as well.
FIFA 13 is considered the closest thing to a real life football experience. With its unpredictability, every player, tackle and goal feels different. Hence, every action sequence will be difficult to replicate in the same way, which will leave gamers feeling like they are on the field themselves.
FIFA 13 is slated for release on Sept. 25, 2012.
