New Ignite engine showcased at FIFA 14 unveil

Those lucky enough to get to play the upcoming release commentated on the incredibly smooth and visually striking graphics that perform at a constant 60fps and also the increased focus on momentum as EA forever continue to make their soccer simulation game the most realistic ever.
Increased focus on momentum as FIFA 14 aims to be the most realistic yet
New mechanics including better ball physics, increased AI and many more player animations will aim to make sure FIFA remains the dominant soccer-sim available.
An increased focus on momentum will seek to emulate the way a game in a real life plays out and it will be interesting to see how this is implemented.AI has received a boost with EA Canada incorporating something they are calling “Pro Skills” to each player. Even the fans will be modelled in 3d this year!
Other gameplay enhancements include sliced passes, overheads, and finesse headers with the Ignite engine also offering 10 times more animation depth and detail than ever before.
The trailer itself features Barcelona players talking about their individual roles in the team and how they all combine in a presumed attempt to show how FIFA 14 will differentiate players roles better than ever before.

FIFA 14 will follow its yearly late September release schedule for PC and current gen home consoles.
It has also been announced that it will be released for the next gen consoles Xbox One and PS4 before the end of the year.
