TrueBall Tech will force the action of the game on the ball and the players closest to it. This will not only change how the camera follows the game, but players will now react differently to the action on the field. Players will now have to fight for every inch gained on opposing defenses on the way to the net, while defenders will have new controls that allow the ball to be poked and prodded away from the control of an offensive player. New motion controls for players allow 360-degree movement, even when controlling the ball to help counteract tougher defenses. This all combines to make the game a bit more complicated and difficult but very much more realistic and enjoyable for soccer fans.
All new physics have been added to Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 as well with the introduction of Motion Animation Stability System. The new features adds a depth of realism to the series that has never been seen before. Players will now react to any bump, tackle and collision on the field with an infinite supply of animations that are created on the fly to ensure no play ever turns out precisely the same. The new physics also apply to how the ball reacts to a tackled player as well with control of the ball being as easy to gain for defenders as losing the ball for players on offense. Player attributes will now be more important than ever too with new realism that allows for one player to take control of the ball from an opposing player or allow the controller to make a shifty move past the defense.
Other new features in the game include new statistical points that measure a player's heart and desire to win a match. This also affects the way a player performs on the field should the player be having a good or bad match and is reflective in their play. Of course, teammates will be able to act as a proper leader and encourage the player to burst from a slump. Players will also perform on the field much more like their real life counter parts with identifications technology that has been greatly expanded since its introduction in Pro Evolution Soccer 2013. Of course, Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 also features improved visuals as well as other presentation enhancements. Needless to say, Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 is shaping up to be one of the best sports titles released this year, so preorder your copy of the game before it arrives for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 24, 2013.
