FIFA 14:From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
FIFA 14 is a sports association football simulation video game developed by EA Canada and published by Electronics Arts. It was released in late September 2013 for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, Wii, Nintendo 3DS video game consoles and Microsoft Windows. It was also released as freeware for iOS and Android on 23 September 2013. The game was released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in November 2013.
The main features are listed below with EA deciding this year to focus more on the online FUT experience. This has come at the expense of features previously enjoyed by gamers, like custom tournament and guest play. A number of users have complained of various bugs and glitches which EA developers hope to eradicate through the normal patching process. The momentum (aka scripting) is also prevalent this year, designed to really add to the excitement of matches around the 45 and 90 minute marks.

A new engine called the Ignite Engine will be used in FIFA 14 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions only. This features both graphical and game-play changes such as human intelligence to make players react more like the real thing, True Player Motion to create more realistic movement from the players and more realism to the way environmental features like weather and stadium crowd dynamics develop during play. A PC port of the version with Ignite Engine was in the works, but eventually it was cancelled.
21 Brazilian clubs are licensed: all 20 from the 2013 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A season as well as Palmeiras.

The FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) game mode will feature exclusive content on the Xbox One. On the Xbox One, there is a new feature for Ultimate team known as Legends, where players can acquire classic players from different eras of football such as Pelé and Dennis Bergkamp. EA has also announced that they will be reintroducing the "single online match", where players are allowed to play a single match that does not contribute to tournaments or seasons. You can now also search for players by name on the transfer market from the squad screen. Marcel Khun and Tyler Blair discuss the chemistry changes in the FUT 14 trailer along with many other changes, including being able to edit kit numbers and player role for free kicks or corners.
