Goalkeeper play in the latest installment of FIFA will be much better than last years editions says developer EA Canada during publisher Electronic Arts’ Gamescom 2014 press briefing, alongside the release of a new trailer.
EA Canada showcased no other than US and Everton FC Goalie Tim Howard, who had an lasting impression during this years World Cup campaign. They have used him in a motion-capture work for FIFA 15. According to the studio, goalies have been reprogrammed with better AI that allows them to anticipate shots and passes, and react more realistically to them. We can also expect new animations for saves and deflections. Goalies will take on a more aggressive role as they will be moving around the box, which also means that attackers may have more chances to score.
FIFA 15‘s new Match Day feature, which ties the game to real-world soccer, has also been upgraded with news provided by Goal.com in a new hub called Match Day Live. And new improvements to the career mode has made it easier for players to manage teams. FIFA 15 launches Sept. 23 in North America and Sept. 26 internationally.
