New Gameplay Features
Player Impact Engine
The “Player Impact Engine” expands physical play from simple collisions to off-the-ball battles between players. Defenders will push and pull for position, and use their size and strength to win possession or force opponents into poor touches and decisions before the ball arrives.
Tactical Free Kicks
FIFA 13′s “Tactical Free Kicks” provides the tools to create dangerous and unpredictable free kicks, by utilizing the most skillful players on the pitch. The player will be allowed to position up to three attacking players over the ball and utilize dummy runs and more passing options to create elaborate free kicks. Opponents can counter by adding or subtracting players to the wall, creeping the wall forward, or sending a bullet man to intercept the pass or block the shot.
All-new “Attacking Intelligence” enables players to analyze space, work harder and smarter to break down defences, and think two plays ahead. Players now possess the intelligence to create, curve, or alter runs in order to capitalise on openings as they occur, make runs that pull defenders out of position in order to open passing channels for teammates and better position themselves for new attacking opportunities.
Commentators for FIFA 13 are yet to be confirmed by EA Sports. It is assumed, however, that the commentary in FIFA 13 will be similar to that of the previous version; that is,Martin Tyler and Alan Smith are assumed to be included for FIFA 13′s commentary, as well as Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend.
