FIFA 14 Pure Shot Trailer

An amazing goal can make a game, it can have people talking about it for days, months, years and longer. Electronic Arts have developed Pure Shot to try and help players create goals that they can feel excited about.

This news post on the official website talks about how Pure Shot works:

"The best goals are a combination of perfect timing, anticipation, and great positioning. Fans will be rewarded for all three in FIFA 14.  Players now adjust their approach angle when the shot is started looking for a more suitable angle for hitting the ball. They also understand the phases of shooting and will adjust their stride and pace to hit the ball.

Players will try to set up for the best possible shot, but that will vary depending on where they are on the pitch and how the ball is delivered to their feet. Players will take what is available to them and that may mean taking an off-balanced shot or taking a rushed shot which can hinder the accuracy and strength of their attempt. New animations will support this and the foot sliding, skipping and scissor legs that can be seen in FIFA 13 will be eliminated."

Along with these changes, the ball physics system has been overhauled to match how the ball moves in space. Many more shot options will be available to players, making more a much more varied and unpredictable but realistic game.

EA have released a trailer showcasing both these new features so if you're interested you can have a look here.
