A trailer for EA’s latest FIFA outing has been reviled at Gamescom, FIFa 13 is based aroundÂ “capturing the unpredictable“. Now if that is going to include streakers is anybody’s guess. What it does have though is a host of nifty new features and a beefed up career mode including:
1st Touch Control:
The way players control the ball has been transformed, eliminating near-perfect touch for every player on the pitch, and creating more opportunities for defenders to win back possession. Poor passes are harder to control, enabling defenders to capitalise on errant balls and poor touches. Factors such as defensive pressure, trajectory of the ball, and velocity of the pass all factor into a playerâ€™s success.
The most sophisticated artificial intelligence ever achieved infuses players with the ability to analyse space, work harder and smarter to break down the defence, and think two plays ahead. Players will make runs that pull defenders out of position and open up passing channels for teammates, and curve, or alter runs to capitalise on openings as they occur.
Inspired by Lionel Messi, experience the freedom and control to be more creative in attack. Face an opponent to threaten attack while moving with the ball in any direction utilizing precise dribble touches to dodge tackles, or turn and shield the ball, holding off defenders for longer stretches. With Complete Dribbling itâ€™s easier to be more dangerous in 1v1 opportunities.
FIFA Ultimate Team:
Build your Ultimate Team of soccer stars by earning, buying, selling and trading players and items within the FIFA community. Create, manage and compete with multiple squads in new competitions each week. Use the new EA SPORTS Football Club App For iPhone to manage your squad, search live auctions and bid to win new players.
EA Sports Football Club:
Connect, compete and share with friends. Everything within the game, and against friends, is measured in a meaningful way. Build status as you climb 100 levels, unlock rewards in the all-new Football Club Catalogue, and enjoy live challenges based on real-world football games.

Career Mode has been expanded to include internationals. Play for or manage your favourite national team, competing in friendlies, qualifiers and major international tournaments. Play as manager and secure an offer to coach any national team, with bigger decisions and more pressure. Compete as a player and prove yourself at the club level, then get the call to play for your country.
