New information about EA's FIFA 10 - unfortunately it's no good news for PC gamers: In FIFA 10 there won't be Next-Gen graphics for the PC - just like it has been the case when FIFA 09 was released. This is what FIFA Soccer Blog learned during an interview at the Community Day in Vancouver.
According to the developers only ten percent
of the FIFA gamers would have a PC that is fast enough to run the game with Next-Gen graphics - so EA would have to suffer the loss of sales volumes. The calculations are based on worldwide data so local differences are not taken into account.
But EA wants to improve the gameplay of the FIFA 10 PC version: among other features there will be an updated collision system as well as better animations for goal keepers and audience. Furthermore each team is said to receive an appropriate offensive and defensive orientation along with improved player switching.
FIFA 10 is scheduled for release in fall 2009 and EA has published new FIFA 10 screenshots at the E3.
