New FIFA 15 features teased at E3 2014

A raft of new FIFA 15 features have been teased during E3 2014, with the upcoming release shaping up to be the most realistic football sims to date.

Discussed as part of developer EA’s E3 press conference, FIFA 15 will add an all new ball physics system to the mix alongside a bevy of player, pitch and stadium enhancements. Combined, these new features look set to act as a major step up on past FIFA offerings.

With FIFA 15 we have created a game that lets you experience the emotion of football like never before,” EA’s David Rutter said.

He added: “Players now have memories, they will show their emotions based on the context of the game.”

While a player getting stroppy at not being awarded a free kick or playing better after scoring a goal might not sound all that appealing to some, new ‘full body defending’ features look set to further evoke the passion and physicality of the beautiful game.

“We have created the next-generation football player. You will not only feel their athleticism but see it too,” Rutter said before explaining how shirt pulling will be introduced to your defensive arsenal for the first time.

Further FIFA 15 features detailed include a dramatic reworking of the gameplay environment.

Studs will now leave marks on the pitch – as will hefty slide tackles – goal frames will rock if clattered by a shot and crowds have been enhanced to better react to the action.

Creating a more true-to-life footballing environment, stadiums and crowds have been updated with some funny features. From singing and flag-waving at the Cop to the Poznan being performed at the Ethiad, FIFA 15 will offer a number of improvements.

There is currently no word on a finalised FIFA 15 release date, although we expect the game to touch down some time in September.
