The developers at EA Canada managed to keep the one-year production cycle tradition and introduced evolutionary changes.

Available gameplay options enable competing with computer AI or live opponents. Following current trends, developers also took care of social features relating to EA Sports Football Club network module.
The gameplay of “FIFA 14” is based on solutions already tested in previous games, although the developers introduced a number of innovations designed to improve the attractiveness of virtual struggle on the football field. Ball physics has been significantly modified, making the ball behavior more realistic and predictable. The shooting system has been completely remodeled as well. Football players, if they have the opportunity to do so, adjust their step, speed and angle of ball approach to give the best shot towards the rival goal.
“FIFA 14” offers greater control over the flow of the game and action in the middle of the pitch, allowing you to dictate the pace of the match.
