• Bale suits up

1. Bale suits up

Every mo-cap suit is adorned with 76 specifically placed markers, which are rather disappointingly just rubber balls affixed with that reflective stuff you get on police jackets. Rather cleverly, though, each suit has one misplaced on purpose so the software can detect multiple people at once. Suits at EA's motion-capture HQ are specially fitted by height and weight – and then kept in the world's strangest cloakroom in wait for someone of similar proportions.

At EA's mocap studio, T3 shot an exclusive FIFA 14 video of Gareth Bale being motion captured into the latest edition of the hit footie franchise.

With Gareth Bale unveiled as the UK cover star of FIFA 14, T3 tried out the tech that's fuelling the Spurs star's first full tech appearance, and the frightening realism we'll enjoy on on next-gen systems such as PS4 and Xbox One.

Having explored EA Canada's industry-leading Capture Lab HQ in Vancouver earlier this year, we headed to Audiomotion, the UK's biggest motion-capture studio, for 60 minutes of tech time with the triple player of the year and Capture Lab's system specialist Mike Iguidez.

Check out our step-by-step gallery of exclusive FIFA 14 images as triple Player of the Year Gareth Bale is turned from soccer star to gaming god and our behind the scenes video from the mo-cap session.

Watch our exclusive video with Gareth Bale and us getting our mo-cap on below.
