EA has announced that its free-to-play football title FIFA World will be getting a new game engine later this year, one that the company says "will give fans an even better, more realistic, football experience".
FIFA World was announced at last year's Gamescom, and EA says that since then it's seen more than 3.5 million registrations from over 180 countries for the current open beta, with over 45 million total matches played.
The idea behind FIFA World was to create a solid football game that could be played by those without access to expensive, powerful PC's or consoles. By the sound of it, that's a pretty popular concept.
Alongside the new engine EA promises a bunch of improvements and updates; First Touch Control and Complete Dribbling will improve the basic player movement and responsiveness, while an improved impact system will make physical clashes more believable. These changes will be made before the end of the year.
So that's what's coming to FIFA World. I've got to confess, I'd somehow never even heard about this game before today. Anyone out there playing the beta?
