On the ball

FIFA 14 will kick off on the PlayStation 4 later this year – and it will be powered by a brand new engine named Ignite. The first footage of this was showcased during Microsoft’s big Xbox One reveal yesterday, but EA Sports has since confirmed that the demo reel applies to Sony’s next generation system as well. We’ve included the video in the space below.

The new technology will bring a number of improvements to the annual soccer simulation – in addition to many of EA Sports’ games – including improved animation, “human-like intelligence”, and even more accurate environments. Sadly, the engine will not be compatible with the PlayStation 3 version of the title.
