EA revealed the first details of NCAA Football 14, which include new real-time physics and the addition of Ultimate Team.
For the first time, EA’s college football offering will be powered by the Infinity Engine 2. The game engine brings the unpredictability of football to life with real-time physics and a force impact system. Players will have more opportunities for user-controlled cuts and stumble recoveries thanks to the new engine. Meanwhile, the force impact system takes advantage of the hit stick and truck moves to create realistic reactions when tackling.
EA’s beloved Ultimate Team mode is set to make its college football debut. The game mode, which lets players build a team of their favorite players using collectible cards, is already used in other EA Sports titles such as Madden and FIFA. The company has not announced details on the mode but is expected to, along with further details on NCAA Football 14, in the coming months. While the developer is not allowed to use the likeness of actual NCAA players in the game, Ultimate Team could be made up of former college stars.
NCAA Football 14 will also include enhanced presentation and improved Dynasty and Season modes.
Developer EA Tiburon is encouraging fans to get involved in the discussion of the new game by using the hashtag #PLAYTRUE on Twitter and visiting the game’s Facebook page.
