All according to executive producer David Rutter.The man, speaking to OPM, said that the upgrade won’t just offer a shinier, higher resolution version of the current-gen edition.
“Put them side by side and play them one after the other, then you realise how vastly different they are. It’s remarkable. PlayStation 4 gives us the ability to render with more fidelity. We’ve got roughly ten times as much animation in the next-gen version.”
All the extra animations provide opportunities for actions that simply couldn’t be pulled off in previous generations.
“You can take shots in places that weren’t there in previous generations. On next-gen, shooting has the full power of Ignite behind it, so you’ve got tonnes more animations in there. We’re really pleased with the synergy between the build-up to the shot and the connection actually happening.”
Of course, it’s pretty safe to think it’ll be the same over in Xbox territory. FIFA 14 launches for current-gen platforms on September 27, with versions for PS4 and Xbox One yet to be dated.
