Electronic Arts is promising to finally improve the FIFA franchise on PC and offer this year a sports title that will be at least comparable to the console version: it is known that in the past few years, the PC version of the most beloved football (as in soccer) game was partially ignored by the folks over at EA Sports. However, this year with FIFA 11 things might change.
And why do I say that? Because the game engine behind the console versions of the soccer simulator will be finally making its debut on PC!
The physics-based, data-driven technology behind the EA SPORTS football engine has been optimised for PC to deliver true freedom on the pitch with individuality of player control and movement, sophisticated ball touches, and physical interaction between players. FIFA 11 PC will feature the market-leading true 360° dribbling system that gives players precise control of the ball and next generation animation technology that delivers Skilled Dribbling, enabling skilled dribblers to face defenders and use highly responsive lateral dribbling to skip past them. Plus, Physical Play has been improved using collision sharing, creating a varied, less predictable, and extended fight for possession between players.
Expect to see the game in stores this fall on October 1st and prepare for a blast!
