Andrew Wilson, EA Sports boss, took to the stage at Microsoft's Xbox One event and confirmed that EA and Microsoft have entered into a "special relationship." This will see four EA Sports games on Xbox One: FIFA 14
, Madden NFL 25
, NBA Live 14
. All four will launch within the next 12 months, Wilson said.
EA Sports Ignite, a new engine created at EA, will power each game, attempting to emulate human intelligence and true player motion within each games. There are "four times more calculations per second" to achieve this. Special content for FIFA 14 Ultimate Team
will "only be on Xbox," Wilson concluded before showing off an EA Sports sizzle reel.
: EA has clarified via Twitter
that FIFA 14 Ultimate Team
will be available on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, though there will be content exclusive to the Xbox One version. The text of this post has been updated to reflect that.
