EA have announced that their next title in the never ending Fifa Franchise is going to be the best yet. So what has been wrong in earlier Fifa’s but corrected in Fifa 08?

Improved AI
EA have placed a 35-point decision engine that will give AI characters multiple choices for what they should do next (take a shoot, pass, run, etc etc)

Improved Shooting
Using a ‘Next-Generation’ shooting engine which will obtain all the information from the ball and player such as the Weight, Speed, Wind Direction, Spin, to give you the ultimate and true to life gaming experience.

More Unique Modes
Release after Release, Season After Season football games always seem to be the same just with graphical updates. Thats not the case in Fifa 08. Fans pay good money to see you play, and deserve a fun-filled 90minutes of football, Be a Pro will have you select one player from a team and you’ll control him for the whole 90 minutes.

Andrew Wilson – Executive Producer for Fifa 08 said;

“This year, FIFA 08 takes its second step into the next-generation. Last year, we kicked off the next-generation by introducing a new engine and stunning ball physics. This year, we are introducing new gameplay, new modes and a new feeling of football finesse. Be A Pro forces you to think and react like a professional player – you will experience the whole range of emotions players go through during the course of a game. This feature, along with advancements to our gameplay engine, will deliver on our promise of authentic football gameplay.”

Fifa 08 will include 620 fully-licensed teams in 30leagues with over 15,000 players apparently making Fifa 08 20% bigger than Fifa 07, Joe Booth Producer for Fifa 08 commented;

“The Interactive Leagues is the most successful online tournament we’ve had for the FIFA franchise and I am thrilled to bring it into this year’s next-gen game. As a Leeds United fan I was pained to see Manchester United win the first Interactive Premier League last season. However, I’m looking forward to redressing the balance this year through FIFA 08. One of my favourite things about Interactive Leagues is how it connects me and the development team with the FIFA gamers via our weekly in-game pod-cast. We have just broken the one million downloads mark and It’s been a fantastic way to interact with other fans, share experiences and answer questions.”

We’ve also updated our PS3Media Section and 360Media Section with seven brand-new screenshots.
