Experience the emotion of scoring great goals in FIFA 14. Innovations to the award-winning gameplay make the experience more authentic and all-around more enjoyable. Dictate the tempo of a match, create chances through midfield, and unleash the perfect strike. A new feature called Pure Shot and a brand-new ball physics system will transform shooting, making every shot attempt feel real and more dynamic. FIFA 14 delivers engaging online modes such as all-new FIFA Ultimate Team and Co-op Seasons, and live services that connect fans to the heartbeat of the sport—and to each other—through EA SPORTS Football Club.

KEY FEATURES

Precision movement
Now every step counts as players plant, pivot, cut, and shift momentum with the agility and explosiveness of real footballers. Player acceleration and deceleration is more realistic with a game-changing effect on gameplay. Players feel more grounded, agile and athletic, and manage their momentum with distinct foot plants and push-offs, delivering the authentic motion of professional footballers.

Pure shot
Shooting has been transformed. Players have the intelligence to adjust their stride and approach different angles to find the best position for hitting the back of the net. Well-hit balls feel even more satisfying and goals are rewarding. As well as quality strikes, players can now shoot while off balance or rushed.

Real ball physics
Strike the ball with more force and finesse. Realistic ball physics now determines the trajectories of balls in game, enabling players to strike the ball with force from distance, drill low rising shots with accuracy, and blast dipping or swerving shots, just like real footballers.

Protect the ball
Fend-off and block defenders from the ball while dribbling at any speed. Protect the ball from opponents to control play through midfield and dictate the pace of the match. Plus, out-muscle opponents for position before receiving the ball, then turn defenders to carve out opportunities.

Team-mate intelligence
Better decision-making delivers tighter, smarter marking and improved run tracking. Defenders recognise opportunities to provide support and win back possession. Attacking players have new ways to outsmart their opponents and break down defences by creating space for themselves, running along the backline and checking their pace.

Sprint dribble turns
Utilize quick, explosive cuts and turns to beat defenders one-on-one while sprinting with the ball. Players can move in any direction, preserving their natural momentum and maintaining possession of the ball.

Variable dribble touches
The First Touch Control of dribbling varies a player’s touch when dribbling with pace. Skilled players have the touch and control to stand out while less skilled players will experience fewer perfect touches and more uncertainty dribbling, creating opportunities for defenders to win back possession, and placing emphasis on building play through midfield.

FIFA Ultimate Team
Create your own unique squad of football stars to play your style of football. Ultimate customization is possible with all-new Chemistry Styles that make every player and every team unique. Like real-world football, chemistry influences a team’s performance so building ideal chemistry within a squad enables a team to perform at its best. Each Chemistry Style has a unique effect on the way a player performs by enhancing different player attributes. Different styles can be applied at every position. Plus, test your talents in the popular Seasons mode—now expanded to ten divisions— or in online single games and tournaments.

Skill games
Utilise a competitive practice mode to learn or master the fundamental skills necessary to compete at FIFA 14. Become a better player, faster, no matter what your skill level, competing against yourself or friends in all-new mini-games.

Co-op Seasons Mode
Play with a friend online against two other online friends anywhere in the world in 2v2 ranked online play, trying to climb up a division, win a league title and achieve greatness together.

Match Day Online
Match Day has been expanded to Seasons and Co-op seasons, completely connecting fans playing online to the football season for the world’s top leagues, with injuries, suspensions, and player form changing throughout the season based on real-world events and performances.

Career Mode
Search for talent year-round with the new Global Transfer Network that brings the world of professional scouting to life. Develop and refine your own scouting network.
