The latest edition of the top-selling sports franchise in the world has been released to the masses as EA Sports’ FIFA 14 is now available to consumers in North America.
Boasting new improvements to the gameplay and career modes year over year, FIFA 14 has become head-and-shoulders better than its counterpart Pro Evolution Soccer, and the sales numbers are there to prove it.
FIFA 13 sold more than 14.5-million copies, and EA expects the number to increase this year with the release of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. On the other side of it, PES 2013 sold just 1.25-million copies worldwide.
In FIFA 14, fans will notice new gameplay improvements like “pure shot”. Pure Shot gives players the ability to change their stride and angle at any given moment before a shot in order to get the exact placement they need for the best chance at scoring a goal. Another feature is real ball physics which make the ball move and feel like a real soccer ball, and not just an easy-to-kick object.
Off the field, FIFA 14 introduced a brand new way to transfer players in career mode. The Global Transfer Network allows players to create a scout team, and scout in the manner they want in order to get the best players that fit their team’s model.
FIFA 14 is out now for the PC, Xbox 360, PS3, 3DS, and Vita. But buyer beware on the Vita and 3DS.
FIFA 14 will be released to those in Europe on September, 27.
