character depth, Frostbite helps to further blur the lines between the virtual
and real worlds. Using movie studio-style advanced shadowing and occlusion
techniques to benefit character rendering and overall pitch presentation, FIFA
18 delivers the most visually arresting and authentic football
Real Player Motion Technology: The all-new, game-changing animation system
utilizes pose trajectory matching on every frame to deliver the
franchise’s most responsive and fluid gameplay ever. New motion capture
techniques and frame by frame animation transitions ensure gameplay accurately
represents the reality of football. Real Player Motion Tech is the catalyst for
an increased fidelity in movement for every player on the pitch, immediately
taking authenticity to another level.
Player Personality: Six new character archetypes and new player mapping
technology differentiate players on the pitch to give them their own distinct
identity. For the first time ever, real-world movements, size and attributes
inform how a player moves, allowing you to feel the life-like tendencies of the
world’s best. Ronaldo’s signature sprint, Sterling’s unique turns, and
Robben’s distinct arm movement are all immediately recognizable in
Dribbling Overhaul: In FIFA 18, you will run at defenders with confidence
knowing that the best players can change direction on a dime. New dribbling
mechanics enable players to inject more creativity into 1v1 situations. Take
more defined touches, make tighter turns, and explode into attack more
dynamically than ever before.
Responsive: Creative on-ball skills, contextual touches, and a re-imagining
of the control dribble mechanic give players new options when building up
attacks in tight spaces. Change direction with ease and feel your player respond
when you escape a defender lunging to tackle.
Explosive: Authentic and dynamic speed-based animations allow you to explode
more rapidly from controlled touches into full tilt sprints.
TEAM STYLES AND POSITIONING
New Player Positioning: With more freedom in motion, your teammates examine the
pitch and react accordingly; darting forward in coordinated runs, or moving into
space to provide consistent attacking support. New player positioning gives you
a well-balanced and spread pitch with more opportunities in time and space to
read the play.• Team Styles: A deep set of authentic playing styles
attributed to several teams put the most-recognized tactics on the pitch in FIFA
18 – now in AI you will immediately recognize the tiki-taka of some of
Europe’s best clubs or the high-pressing style of teams in the Premier
League. Feel a change in defensive and attacking approaches every time you
choose a new club or opponent.
Dynamic Quick Substitutes: All-new context based substitution prompts allow
players to easily make changes without pausing the match. Whether it's a missed
chance, or necessary response to conceding a goal, you can instantly decide if a
change is needed without visiting the menu.
Regional Atmospheres: Authentic sun positions, cinematic atmosphere grading,
signature pitch-side fixtures, authentic broadcast overlays in La Liga and MLS,
on-pitch debris, club and stadium specific banners, adaptive commentary, and
changes in pitch quality all come together to bring the most immersive football
experiences to life in FIFA 18.• High-Def Dynamic Crowds: All-new individual
crowd reactions and expanded regional chant support have you feeding off the
energy of your supporters. Hear authentic chants build as you mount an attack,
incite realistic excitement when you score and even interact with the crowd
Wonder Goals: New locomotion and finishing animations unlock more fluid striking
and heading, combining to increase the potential for more dramatic finishes.
Player Personality ensures the heroes of the game stand tall in the biggest
moments, finishing more often on the biggest stages.
New Crossing Control: All-new crossing controls provide the player with a
variety of options to put the ball into the box, creating dynamic attacking
chances. Whipped to the spot, arching, and back-stick crosses increase the
variety of delivery to accurately pick out the attacking player.
