Releasing a new video, Electronic Arts announced that EA SPORTS IGNITE, a new game engine that will power EA SPORTS games on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. These games, Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, NBA LIVE 14, and EA SPORTS UFC, will each launch within the next 12 months. With EA SPORTS IGNITE, athletes will possess human-like intelligence for advanced decision-making, players will have the agility required to change speeds and directions with true athletic motion, and living worlds will make the game experience as rich and dynamic as real-world stadiums and arenas.
EA SPORTS IGNITE computes four times more calculations per second than previous consoles, unlocking nearly infinite potential for how players think, and enabling them to make more difficult decisions faster. With 10 times more animation depth and detail than previous consoles, and thousands of new sport-specific animations to drive new locomotion systems, players now plant, pivot and cut, quickly change speeds, and shift momentum with the agility and explosiveness of superstar athletes.
