Ahead of this year's addition to EA Sports' juggernaut FIFA football game franchise, and fresh with some officially released new details, we've been looking forward to what we might get from FIFA 13, and here are the ten most exciting things gamers can look forward so far...
More Captured Faces Than EverTech developed by Glasgow-based digital capture firm Dimensional Imaging will be used by EA Sports to pack FIFA 13 with more realistic faces than ever before, according to Mike Harrison, director of EA Capture at Electronic Arts:
"We recognised a few years ago that raising the quality of facial appearance was an increasing priority for our game teams. Working closely with Dimensional Imaging has allowed us to develop a highly accurate 3D facial capture pipeline that is now so efficient that we can apply it to more characters than we ever thought possible."Dimensional Imaging CEO Colin Urquhart added his own take on the continued success of the working relationship:
"The relentless increase in the quality of computer graphics makes it ever more necessary to capture real life human likenesses in order to create believable virtual characters, but this process has traditionally been very time consuming for video game development." "EA was one of the first developers to recognize the need for improved capture workflows, and working with them since EA Sports FIFA 10 has been instrumental in helping Dimensional Imaging to develop a product suite that is now suitable for even the most demanding development pipelines in the business."
