What do we all get excited about once the season is over? The transfer window? It definitely provide its fair share of drama and excitement but, for most of us, it’s just like having a night out without a wallet – one might get by initially, but disappointment looms large around the corner.
Holidays are certainly worth looking forward to but when one considers the backlash wallet and liver might sustain, there’s not much to get excited about.
There’s, however, a lot to get excited about FIFA 14, the latest chapter of EA Sports’ extremely successful game, due to be released on September 27.
EA Sports today released the first official trailer, which is sure to have already whet the appetite of millions of fans worldwide (ours included) who had already been salivating over the game’s new features that were leaked over the last couple of weeks.
According to EA Sports, FIFA 14 will place emphasis on ultra-realistic ball physics. Whether you want to produce a Ronaldo-like thumping free-kick or a pick a pass Andrea Pirlo would be proud of, you will be able to do so.
Furthermore, EA Sports added that: “Shooting has been transformed. Players have the intelligence to adjust their stride and approach angle to find the best position for hitting the back of the net,” which, hopefully, should put an end to the days of carving your opponent apart only for your striker to comically fluff his lines in front of goal.
The career mode has also been revamped as have the skill games, while EA Sports has highlighted a whole new dribbling system and an enhanced teammate intelligence as features to look out for.
So let’s finish those careers mode on FIFA 13 and dust off the joypads for September.
