Experience FOOTBALL INTELLIGENCE, a complete rethink that unlocks an unprecedented platform of football realism. FOOTBALL INTELLIGENCE elevates every living moment on the pitch: on-the-ball, off-the-ball, and through-the-ball. Built on three core pillars: Decisive Moments (on-the-ball), Authentic Game Flow (off-the-ball), and Ball Physics (through-the-ball), this approach is intended to put the user at the centre of every match.
Authentic Game Flow: Awareness of time, space, and position are fundamental intelligences of world class footballers. With Authentic Game Flow every AI controlled player will operate in a manner that considers these components, delivering an environment that creates more time and space, putting greater emphasis on user-controlled play.
- Dynamic One-on-Ones: built using the game tempo from the world's best leagues, an overhauled gameflow offers more true-to-life spacing and pace of play, resulting in more 1 on 1 opportunities putting emphasis on user-controlled Decisive Moments.
- AI Defending: an overhaul in the positioning and tackling system creates an environment for AI to better complement the user-controlled player. AI will offer intelligent defensive support, while rewarding and advantaging user defending.
- Natural Player Motion: with locomotion and positioning innovations AI players move in a more natural and composed fashion than ever before, creating realistic football movement for all players on the pitch.
Decisive Moments: Football is made up of a series of pivotal moments that determine the outcome of a match. From Composed Finishing in the final third to Controlled Tackling in the back, matches will be won or lost through user-controlled Decisive Moments.
- Strafe Dribbling: the new strafe dribble mechanic adds more dimension to attacking options; offering the ability to move with more agility than ever to lure your opponent in to then beat him on speed or skill.
- Controlled Tackling: Utilizing the Active Touch System, user-controlled defending is advantaged and rewarded through a variety of new tackle animations. The cleaner the tackle, the higher the likelihood of players retaining possession of the ball.
- Set Piece Refresh: A system refresh that gives deeper options for aiming direct free kicks and penalties, introducing more skill-based mechanics for striking that are more rewarding than ever.
- Composed Finishing: An overhaul in the fundamentals of shooting will allow you to experience more consistent and clinical finishing. This creates a more true-to-life shooting experience that better rewards authentic finishing and offers risk and reward in more difficult situations like volleyed crosses. Ball Physics: The final dynamic component to a football match is the ball. The Ball Physics System elevates gameplay to a new level of realism, offering new shot trajectories, more realistic tackle interactions, and physics-driven behaviour.
- Football Informed Motion: an overhauled motion system introduces more authentic ball spins and bounces that play out with more realism than ever before. This creates a more true-to-life football experience.
- New Shot Trajectories: with the new ball motion system a variety of realistic shot trajectories are unlocked, from technically dipping shots to knuckleballs to swerved set-pieces and first-time rising shots.
