FIFA 13 release date to see Xbox games benefit from Kinect motion gaming compatibility
Whilst adding compatibility to Microsoft’s controller-free motion gaming peripheral, EA has announced FIFA 13 will not feature the same level of technological evolution as this year’s upcoming title which will see a completely revamped Player Impact engine.
"Since the Kinect came out, or the very first announcement almost two years ago, we've been asked, 'Will you have Kinect support?', and we've always said, 'Not until we can get something cool and makes sense working'," said David Rutter lead producer on the football franchise. "Now that's the case and that's going to be next year, so it's just a case of finishing that off now."
Rutter added: "Next year, we're not going to reinvent a brand new Player Impact engine, because the reason we've learnt this year is that it's future-proofing our game. It's probably not going to be quite as dramatic as far as technology is concerned, but there'll be a large number of changes based around gameplay nuance on the back of that.
FIFA 12 is set to launch in the UK on September 30th, three days after it touches down in the US but two weeks ahead of fierce rival PES 2012 comes to the UK.
