THE ENGINE

Human Intelligence. True Player Motion. Living Worlds.

The EA SPORTS IGNITE game engine delivers a new level of innovation, further blurring the line between the real-world and the virtual. Developed by EA SPORTS™, games powered by the engine are alive: players think, move and behave like real athletes, with environments as dynamic and ever-changing as real-world stadiums.

With Human Intelligence, True Player Motion and Living Worlds, the way sports games are played has fundamentally changed. EA SPORTS IGNITE is designed to harness the potential of next-generation.

HUMAN INTELLIGENCE

Your opponents are alive

Instincts. Awareness. Unpredictability. All players on the field, pitch, court or in the octagon are alive from the neck up with Human Intelligence.

Contextual Awareness

The EA SPORTS IGNITE engine provides contextual awareness and a greater sphere of vision for every athlete. Players are alive and able to think, anticipate and react to the position of their teammates, the opposition, and the scenario unfolding in the game.

Ignite_Assets_Intelligence

Intelligence

The Intelligence system of EA SPORTS IGNITE delivers four times greater decision-making capabilities, allowing the players to react instinctively like real-world athletes. Players can now anticipate, avoid or brace for physical challenges and collisions.

TRUE PLAYER MOTION

From deft movements to crunching tackles

True Player Motion delivers revolutionary biomechanical physics, authentically recreating the dynamic movement and physicality of actual athletes.

Ignite_Assets_StepBasedLocomotion

Step-based locomotion

Foot planting, pivoting and side-stepping are influenced by a player’s momentum in real-time. Players accelerate, evade and shift momentum with the agility and explosiveness of real-world athletes.

Ignite_Assets_Biomechanics

Biomechanics

EA SPORTS IGNITE delivers dynamic movements and biomechanics. The body’s individual components have unique mass, resulting in the authentic reproduction of a player’s body weight, center of gravity and momentum.

Ignite_Assets_Cloth

Cloth

In addition to increased visual detail, jerseys now stretch and billow depending upon movement. Tugging shirts generates force, which factors into physics, potentially destabilizing the player.

LIVING WORLDS

Electrifying atmospheres

Living Worlds usher in an all-new level of immersion and authenticity. Crowds and sidelines are as ever-changing as real-world stadiums.

Ignite_Assets_LivingSidelines

Living Stadiums

Stadiums and arenas are now comprised of individually modeled 3D characters, each with dynamic reactions and behavior. In-game environments are as ever-changing as the real-world, evolving throughout the game and as the storylines develop.

Ignite_Assets_CrowdReaction

Crowd Reaction

Playing home or away never felt so real. EA SPORTS IGNITE eliminates scripted crowd animations, with individual intelligence and context of the game allowing the stadium and sidelines to react to every scenario organically. As in the real-world, the emotions of crowds – such as elation, frustration and anxiety – swings as the match plays out.

GAMES

FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, NBA LIVE 14, EA SPORTS UFC, Madden NFL 15, NHL 15 and FIFA 15 are now available for Microsoft Xbox One and PlayStation®4.
