Well its been coming for a few weeks since the new Pro Evo was announced but now Fifa 13 has been unofficially revealed by gaming site 'DSOgaming'.
|All of this information, and the screenshots, comes from website DSOGaming, which we've never heard of before. But given the fact that it refers to the beautiful game as soccer and dedicates a few disinterested paragraphs to the game's reveal we're guessing they're American.|
We also assume they've unwittingly broken an embargo date, which is why no one else has put up their preview yet - and why we wouldn't be surprised to find EA getting them to take down this one if they notice it.
To be honest, I'm not expecting a huge overhaul in game-play as I felt we saw in the previous instalment, but they appear to be making the necessary improvements. Improving the "Player Impact Engine" is great as it had its flaws in Fifa 12 and enhancing the AI's attacking ability should provide a more challenging game.
|This year's FIFA sequel is to focus on five major improvements to EA Sports' best-selling sports sim: First Touch Control, Player Impact, Complete Dribble, Tactical Free-Kicks and Attacking AI.|
Here's a couple of the screen shots:
I for one am pretty excited and will be keen to see how this development progresses, especially with regards to manager mode; the free-kick changes sound intriguing as well. Once again, expect a late September release.
I'll add to this post as more information becomes available.
So EA have announced that players progress from Fifa 12 will be carried over to the latest addition and that they will be rewarding players for participating in Football Club. Further more, gamers will be able to link their stats and progress to social networking sites for the first time in the series with a great emphasis placed on this.
|Fans will now be earning Football Club Credits to unlock items such as kits, special celebrations, virtual pro attribute boosts, Career Mode super scout credits, FIFA 13 Ultimate Teamcoin boosts, and extra matches in Head-to-Head Seasons mode from the Catalogue.|
The graphics aren't a huge step up but the game looks polished to say the least. Both dribbling and free kicks look like they've been greatly improved.
