FIFA 14 Reveal Blowout: Get Your Screenshots & Details Here

FIFA 14 has been officially unveiled, offering yet another raft of mechanical tweaks, features and modes. We've rounded up the pertinent details, including new ball physics, revamped passing, improved AI, Global Scouting Network and more, after the break with plenty of debut screenshots.

Announced for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 - with "other platforms" to be announced - FIFA 14 will contain a bevy of mechanical improvements. 'First touch control' allows players to vary their dribbling depending on their pace, with more skilled players better at controlling the ball at speed. The new 'Pure Shot' system lets us tweak stride and angles to score the perfect goal, even when off balance, while a greater degree of spin and curl can now be applied.

AI, a sticking point for many footy titles, has been revamped. Players will be able to mark tighter, defend more consistently and make space at the front.

In terms of gametypes, the Career mode adds a new Global Scouting network that lets you search out and exploit talent from around the world, with over 15,000 players to chose from. Skill Games provide a sandbox to hone your skills before heading online.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. Here's the full feature list, brought to life by the convenient magic of bullet points.

  • Pure Shot: 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. Well-hit balls feel satisfying and goals are rewarding. As well as quality strikes, players can now shoot while off balance or rushed.
  • Real Ball Physics: Strike the ball with more force and finesse. Realistic ball physics now determines the trajectories of balls in game, enabling players to strike the ball with force from distance, drill low rising shots with accuracy, and blast dipping or swerving shots, just like real footballers.
  • Protect The Ball: Dominate midfield and dictate the tempo of a match. Fend-off and block defenders from the ball while dribbling at any speed. Protect the ball from opponents to control play through midfield and dictate the pace of the match. Plus, out-muscle opponents for position before receiving the ball, then turn defenders to carve out opportunities.

  • Teammate Intelligence: Better decision-making delivers tighter, smarter marking and improved run tracking. Defenders recognize opportunities to provide support and win back possession. Attacking players have new ways to outsmart their opponents and break down tighter, more intelligent defences by creating space for themselves, running along the backline and checking their pace.
  • Sprint Dribble Turns: Utilize quick, explosive cuts and turns to beat defenders one-on-one while sprinting with the ball. Players can move in any direction, preserving their natural momentum and maintaining possession of the ball.
  • Variable Dribble Touches: The First Touch Control of dribbling varies a player's touch when dribbling with pace. Skilled players have the touch and control to stand out while less skilled players will experience fewer perfect touches and more uncertainty dribbling, creating opportunities for defenders to win back possession, and placing emphasis on building play through midfield.
  • 2nd Chance Tackles: The tackling zone has been extended to enable defenders to combine different types of tackles, recover from missed tackles quickly, and have a second chance to compete for the ball in any tackling situation.

  • Curling Lofted Through Balls: Players have the ability to curl the ball around opponents to deliver precision passes to teammates or send the ball into space.
  • Skill Games: A competitive practice mode that enable players to learn or master the fundamental skills necessary to compete at FIFA 14. Become a better player, faster, no matter what your skill level, competing against yourself or friends in all-new mini-games.
  • Career Mode: Search for talent year-round with the new Global Scouting Network that brings the world of professional scouting to life. Develop and refine your own scouting network. Evaluate footballers to uncover the attributes of players who could bolster your squad during the transfer windows. A new hub delivers easy navigation, fewer interruptions and live scouting reports.
  • Complete Authenticity: All the authenticity EA SPORTS is known for with officially licensed clubs, leagues and more than 15,000 players.
