FIFA 07 is out now on the Xbox 360.  A new engine and improved controls may help to freshen up an age-old franchise, and get some new fans for EA's staple soccer sim.


 FIFA Soccer 07 on the Xbox 360™ videogame system from Microsoft heralds the start of the next generation of soccer gaming and fans now have the opportunity to experience the dynamic new EA SPORTS™ engine and all-new gameplay after Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) shipped FIFA Soccer 07 on Xbox 360 to stores throughout North America and Europe, making it available to fans worldwide. 

 

FIFA Soccer 07 on the Xbox 360 moves away from the traditional animation-based game engine and now enables raw physics and data to drive the action, creating true-to-life movement and the most advanced visuals seen in a soccer game. Player characteristics are based on brand-new traits and twice the number of attributes, so you won't see two players moving in exactly the same way. Instead they look and behave like the athletes we see gracing the pitch week-in, week-out.

 

Improved fundamental controls that are easy to pick-up-and-play but difficult to master and enhanced AI enable you to truly enjoy the virtual recreation of the beautiful game. The ball and players react to your slightest touch with an unprecedented level of responsiveness. For the first time ever the ball is alive with its own independent physics, resulting in truly unpredictable gameplay. Now any type of pass or shot is possible and goals will feel natural and unique.

 

The FIFA Soccer 07 official website located at www.FIFA07.ea.com celebrates the beautiful game with the most comprehensive combination of real life and virtual interactive soccer content, including real world soccer news, fixtures, results, tables, detailed squad stats and 1,000’s of individual player profiles.  Take the EA SPORTS online quiz to test your soccer knowledge against fans from around the world. The FIFA Soccer 07 official website is customizable for 15 international markets. It features an overview of the videogame’s features, gameplay videos of the world’s superstars, producer blogs and interviews, the game’s official soundtrack and the ability to download customizable wallpapers.

 

FIFA Soccer 07 offers never-before-experienced real-time player analysis and pulls together all the facts at the final whistle to accurately rate the best player in the park and award him the ultimate accolade – Man of the Match. The rich feature depth available on FIFA Soccer 07 is complete with Manager Mode and an all-new player evolution system that enables you to develop world-class players, FIFA Soccer 07 Lounge for the ultimate in multiplayer sessions, and a Challenge mode that offers 85 scenarios to test even the most hard-core gamer. 

 

FIFA Soccer 07 on the Xbox 360 also includes comprehensive online features that streams up-to-the-minute real-world game results via real-time, weekly podcasts and news ticker. Nowhere else will soccer fans find such a comprehensive destination for soccer stats, information and real-world news available in five languages. While online, FIFA Soccer 07 will enable four friends to play together on one console against four of their rivals sharing another console for the ultimate in bragging rights.
