Recently, we spoke with Simon Humber, Creative Director on EA Sports Fifa 13.
In this interview, Humber discusses the evolution of the franchise. Regarding last year’s release, Humber states, “There were all these things that we didn’t do that we really wanted to do.”Watch the full interview below:
Humber goes into the nuances found in the dribbling, from the stutter step to one-on-one attacker vs defender battles. He expands on the new contextual animations, which change based on the physicality of each player and how he interacts with the ball. Humber lets us know that Skill Games have been added to bring in a new generation of FIFA players, who “may not be fans of the real-world sport” but want to engage in the game.
Finally, Humber takes us under the hood of the Challenge Mode as well as Career Mode.
