EA reveals the next generation of sports realism on Xbox One
EA Sports will be powered by a brand new engine in the next generation of home consoles. Revealed at Microsoft’s Xbox One event, EA unveiled the future tech behind the popular EA Sports franchises. The “IGNITE” engine, will fill its game worlds with players who think, move, and behave like real athletes and dynamic living worlds, transforming the way people play and experience games on next gen consoles.
The company says that Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, NBA LIVE 14, and EA SPORTS UFC will all launch in the next 12 months, and they will all be using the IGNITE Engine.
“Through years of investment and innovation, we have built technology across EA SPORTS to create a game engine that will deliver stunning accuracy, realism and experiences that we previously could only dream about,” said Andrew Wilson, Executive Vice President and Head of EA SPORTS. “With EA SPORTS IGNITE and the power of next generation consoles, our games will come alive—with more authenticity, more emotion, more connectivity, and more fun.”
