EA Sports’ Andrew Wilson has announced that Microsoft and EA Sports have entered into a “broad partnership” to bring their sports simulations to the Xbox One. The first phase of this partnership includes the release of Madden NFL 25, FIFA Soccer 14, NBA Live 14, and EA Sports UFC on the Xbox One. All four will launch in the next 12 months.
To build their next-generation titles, Wilson revealed “EA Sports Ignite,” a brand new game engine that will be used for these four titles. Wilson wants gamers to know that the Ignite engine allows EA to bring “True Player Motion, Human Intelligence,” and “Living Worlds” to EA Sports games.
The Xbox One version of FIFA 14 will receive exclusive FIFA Ultimate Team content and a “daily stream of new content” for the other games will be available through Xbox Live.
