EA Sports series have been around for some time and FC 24 could mark its final installment under the FIFA banner. Instead, this year the company is planning on revamping and revitalising the title with some major adjustments and additions.
HyperMotion V, developed by EA Sports and designed to recreate the rhythm of real-world soccer in virtual reality, analyzes footage from 180 top-level matches before creating precise gameplay animations within days based on that data. Furthermore, HyperMotion can even enhance existing movements by adding subtleties or speed.
Another major addition this year is “Evolutions,” a player type designed to increase rating, stats and Play Styles of selected squad members. According to the company, Evolutions require players to complete specific objectives before watching their characters improve; watching as their abilities increase while their card designs transform as well. There are various methods by which Evolutions can be unlocked, including challenges and events within Ultimate Team.
EA will bring a fresh new look and feel to their Ultimate Team mode in 2019, adding more diverse teams and offering greater rewards. Furthermore, there will be features allowing players to add one of the stars from this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup directly into their teams, along with collaborations between EA Sports, Adidas Beats & Pepsi for even greater customization options and rewards!
The standard edition of The Last Guardian will release on September 29 for PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, PC and Nintendo Switch platforms. Pre-orders will gain three days early access.
Fans can purchase the Ultimate Edition to commemorate this release, featuring Manchester City player on its cover as well as other exclusives. Ordering before August 22 will earn players an untradeable UCL and UWCL Hero item in November!
EA Sports will still use Frostbite engine for FC 24, but has added exciting and revolutionary new elements that push its visual capabilities in new and innovative ways. These include GPU-driven cloth physics and Hypermotion Volumetric technology which adds depth to visuals; latter harnessing power of PlayStation 5 for realistic looking motion capture.
This year’s game will include 700 teams across 30 leagues. These leagues include Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, La Liga Santander, CONMEBOL Libertadores and NWSL; with both the UEFA Champions League and Europa League set to make an appearance as well. Although few details have been shared so far about this year’s release yet, a gameplay trailer will be made available on July 13.
