FIFA 18 New Gameplay Features - Players

Posted July 25th at 1:00pm.

In FIFA 18 we're adding new features to bring the players of the World's Game to life, making your favourite footballers move and act as they do on the pitch.

Real Player Motion Technology 

The all-new, game-changing animation system utilizes pose trajectory matching on every frame to deliver the most responsive and fluid gameplay ever. We used new motion capture techniques to record Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo and other top players in full flight. Real Player Motion Technology brings that data to life to ensure gameplay accurately represents the reality of football with players feeling and moving just as they do on the real pitch.

Player Personality 

Ronaldo’s signature free kick, Sterling’s unique turns and Griezmann's technique. You'll recognize them all in FIFA 18 as for the first time ever players' real-world motions, size and attributes inform how they move around the pitch.

Dribbling Overhaul

New dribbling mechanics let you run at defenders with confidence using defined touches, tighter turns and more explosive transitions to attack than ever before!

New Crossing Control

Whip the ball in to the spot, lob it in from the byline to the attacker in space, or play the searching cross that finds the run from deep. New crossing controls give you more options from the wing!
