REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- June 10, 2013

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) announced today that EA SPORTS™ FIFA 14 will
feel alive with players who think, move and behave like world-class players,
and dynamic stadiums that come to life, on Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and
entertainment system from Microsoft, and PlayStation®4. Fuelled by EA SPORTS™
IGNITE, which blends new technology with  the best rendering, run-time
physics, animation, intelligence, locomotion and online systems from across EA
into one powerful, new engine, FIFA 14 will elevate its award-winning gameplay
to new heights*.

For the first time ever, fans will feel the electricity of a living stadium,
and experience the majesty of the world’s greatest soccer theatres. Players
now have four times the decision making ability than the current generation of
players in EA SPORTS FIFA, enabling each player to have Pro
Instincts—human-like reactions, anticipation, and instincts. The leap forward
in intelligence is matched by innovations that deliver true player motion. Now
in FIFA 14, every step matters with Precision Movement that enables players to
explode out of each step and every turn like real athletes, preserving their
natural momentum. Plus, the artistry and athleticism of soccer stars will come
to life with Elite Technique that world class players express in every match.

A trailer showcasing FIFA 14 on Xbox One can be viewed here:

“Innovation is the engine that drives our FIFA team and this year we’re
building the most technologically advanced and authentic sports experience in
history,” said David Rutter, Executive Producer of the EA SPORTS FIFA
franchise. “FIFA 14 on next gen consoles will feel alive with players who
possess human-like intelligence, reactions and instincts, players who move and
behave like real athletes, and stadiums that buzz with electricity and

FIFA 14 will have stunning accuracy and visuals and the world inside the
stadium comes alive as the emotions of new 3D crowds rise and fall around the
stories on the pitch. Players are also aware of the match and what needs to be
done to get a result—their sense of urgency increases as the match draws on,
and if a goal is needed, they rush to take a throw-in, corner or goal-kick if
time is running down.

Players in FIFA 14 will make intelligent decisions with human-like
anticipation and reaction times. All 22 players on the pitch possess Pro
Instincts to anticipate and react to the play around them, just like
world-class soccer players. Players will move more instinctively with the
ball, anticipating and reacting to tackles by skipping over out-stretched legs
to avoid collisions, using stiff arms to fend-off defenders or to brace for
collisions, and turning their bodies to brush through contact. Defenders will
anticipate moves to seal off opponents and intercept passes, and slow down
attackers by hooking or holding an arm.

With 10 times more animation depth and detail, EA SPORTS IGNITE delivers the
dynamic movements and biomechanics of the world’s best players. Precision
Movement enables players to plant, pivot and cut, and explode out of each
step. The fidelity of movement has a game-changing effect on gameplay. Players
feel more grounded, agile and athletic, and manage their momentum with
distinct foot plants and push-offs, bringing the authentic motion of
professional soccer players to FIFA 14. Harnessing the power and memory of the
new consoles, FIFA 14 also delivers Elite Technique—hundreds of new skills,
including new types of shots like side volleys, deflections and first time
screamers, and new types of passes, such as touch, over-head, slice and lobs.
Hundreds of new behaviors include trapping the ball in stride at pace, panic
turns when defenders are beaten, off-balance shots, missed shot reactions, and
more are a result of the massive increase in memory of the new consoles.

FIFA 14, developed at EA Canada, will release worldwide within the next 12
months on Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, and is available for pre-order** now
at and other retailers. A version of FIFA 14 will also
release on the Xbox 360® games and entertainment system with Kinect™ from
Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system with PlayStation Move
support, Windows® PC, Nintendo Wii™, Nintendo 3DS™, PlayStation®Vita handheld
entertainment system, PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, and PSP®
(PlayStation®Portable) system in North America on September 24 and worldwide
