Information is starting to compile for this years instalment of FIFA, that’s right numbered 12.

 A few vids are starting to make there way to the fore, with an official 55 second trailer of the ‘Impact Engine’ which looks to be a huge improvement over the prior years tackling and ragdoll effects. Another 9 min video has also been captured for youtube, was then removed and was then returned which video game site Operationssports broke-down so you only need watch and be amazed. Here are the things they said the video contains.

  • Tactical Defending – Contain
  • Tactical Defending – New Opportunities
  • Dribbling – Jog Speed Turn Radius
  • Precision Dribbling – Precision Turn Radius
  • Precision Dribbling – Dribble While Shielding
  • Compares FIFA 11 Tackling Physics with the New Impact Engine Tackling (WOW! What a difference! I mean, WOW!)
  • Impact Engine – Shielding
  • Impact Engine – Unexpected Behaviors (Shows an AWESOME animation of a defender coming in, offensive player makes a move and does a flip)
  • Impact Engine – Variety (Shows a defender taking out a player that is going after the ball)
  • Impact Engine – Contextual Dribble Turns (Shows a player tapping the ball ahead, just a bit, then jumping to avoid a sliding tackle)
  • Impact Engine – Difficult Situations (Shows a player trying to kick the ball, but hits the other players foot instead and falls over)
  • Impact Engine – Shared Collisions (Shows 2 players going after the ball, each player had his own animation, depending on situation. In this particular one, it showed a player reaching out to kick a ball and the defender trying the same, after the ball is touched, the players lose balance and just looks very real)
  • Impact Engine – True Injuries (Woah… Shows a player getting roughed up, trying to advance the ball, he lands awkwardly on his right knee, after a little act job, he grabs his knee and gets up, gingerly)
  • True Injuries – Self Injuries (Damn, this is a great video. Anyways, this shows a player getting injured with nobody around him, looked like a strained groin and the defender takes the ball away)
  • True Injuries – Re-Injury (Shows a player getting tripped up and waving to the sidelines for someone to get him or sub in for him)
  • Impact Engine – Pushing and Pulling – Shows players pushing and pulling for position

EA is suggesting its made multiple upgrades to this years release and are touting it as the best version yet.
