-------------------------------------------
FIFA 09 the latest installment of the top selling football franchise is being developed at EA Canada and is boasting over 251 improvements from FIFA 08. Over two weeks ago the game was shown at the EA Gamers Day. Here are the latest rumours circulating about the game:

- Improved physics system. FIFA 09 has an improved physics system which affects both players and the football itself allowing for beautiful, powerful and deveastating shots and unprecedented levels of realism during a match.

- Improved animation system. The brilliant animation system seen in FIFA 08 is improved upon to include hundreds of new animations for players that further add to the simulation feel of the game.

- New player faces. 3D player modelling is vastly improved and now offers unbelievable similarities to the real life counterparts.

- Increased response times and game speed. Player response times have been increased to increase the flow of the game as in real life, while game speed has been tweaked from FIFA 08.

- Improved graphics, lighting, textures and crowd. Overall graphics have been improved upon once again. Lighting changes in real-time depending on the time of the match. Crowds in the stadium have been redeveloped for the new entry.

- Player height and weight. Player weight and height plays a cruical role in aspects such as aerial challenging and strength on the ground.

- Visible referee, linesman, staff and dugouts. For the first time in the FIFA series referees, linesmen, subs and ground staff are all visible. All have distinct animations such as subs warming up for their arrival.

- Weather options and pitch affects. FIFA 09 now includes weather options such as rain and snow which change conditions during the games progression. In addition the pitch is now affected and becomes more worn during wet matches and slide tackles.

- Increased number of teams and stadiums. As the same during every release FIFA 09 will increase the number of licensed club and international teams as well as their official corresponding stadiums.

- Changes to Be A Pro and Manager Mode. FIFA 09 will bring new changes to Be A Pro and Manager Mode such as camera angles and enhanced options.

- Enhanced online modes. FIFA was the first football game to allow upto 5vs5 online and now this is taken up a gear with full 10vs10 online. Matches now have options for simple 1 player matches, 2vs2, 5vs5 and 10vs10 online games.

- Interactive Celebrations. As seen in UEFA Euro 2008, interactive celebrations will be incorporated into FIFA 09.

- Greatly improved edit mode. Edit mode has now been changed to incorporate a wealth of new options.

FIFA 09 is set to become the ultimate football simulation. New previews will be released along with first screenshots by the end of June 2008.

- Improved Artificial Intelligence system. AI systems have been recoded and act far more realistically. AI now take actions based on the score and change formation as appropriate. Attakcing and defensive measures are used as well as risk assessment.

- Advanced tactics editor. Attacking and defensive styles as well as changes to formation can now be changed on the fly. Risks can be chosen as well as new changes to set pieces.

- Less loading. FIFA is now more streamlined and more efficient and as a result there is less pause and play due to the fewer loading screens.

Recent FIFA 09 news has been seen on magazines and online.
OPM UK reported this:

'FIFA HITS FORM
Whisper it, but we're so impressed by EA's latest that the phrase 'Pro Evo beater' is being bandied around by OPM staff.'

PSM3 reported this:

'EA's latest silences its sternest critic...yes, us.'

In a recent 1up podcast, FIFA 09 is meant to have a revolutionary new feature and was so good it was in for consideration for GOTY.

Also CVG reported on a recent article by US based Gamepro:

Sounds great stuff, it sounds like they are on track to produce a greatly improved Fifa 08.
Though, they improve everything like this every year, such as AI, physics, lighting and textures and response times etc.
They say how brilliant it is every single year
I cant see how better Edit mode can get on Fifa when you cant edit appearances or kits
And 10v 10 could be AWESOME, but it could also be SHITE, depending on what your teammates are like.
I used to hate be a pro mode online sometimes just with 3 other teammates, let alone 9 other teammates because they were not passing and constantly getting tackled.
Plus the connection may not be as good with all them in there.
We'll just have to wait and see
Nevertheless, cheers for the info


EDIT: theres really no need to report the guy now is there. Cant you see that he isnt even a member yet so wouldnt know?

InsideAction, copy the posts, click EDIT on the bottom right of your 1st post and paste. Then delete the others, as your not allowed to double post on here. And hy is his 1st post even reported?
He's only giving information on Fifa, which i was actually looking for

I'll be looking out for FIFA 09 news because it'll be the first FIFA i'll have bought and played since 03.

After Pro Evo's shocking attempt at making a game for PS3 and from what i've heard FIFA's much improved game i'll be giving it a lot more attention.

Is Be A Pro Mode confirmed?

I'll still be getting PES, the latest one wasn't so good but I still liked it and still thought it was better than Fifa. This news sounds good but still not good enough for me.

What else do you want... The entire FA to implant chips into every player so every saturday you actually play as a real team in real life when you plug in Fifa. I mean this game is gonna be good lower your standards.

Fifa 08 had a lot of new things but still was pretty disappointing. Fifa is a good game but I think PES is much better.

I'll definatly be getting either FIFA or PES this year. I haven't played a football game since 05. It all depends on what my friends are getting but FIFA is my personal favourite.

Ugh FIFA games suck

I was looking to get an older FIFA so I didn't have to pay much for it. I wanted to see if I would enjoy the series so I was willing to blow a few bucks to test the waters. After seeing a bunch of reviews showing how crappy FIFA games are (incl. this one) I am so glad I did not buy into this crap series :/

Just out of curiosity, how much have you actually played Euro 2008?

I'll definitely get FIFA this year, Pro Evo will only be bought after it's been proven to be a good game and the onliner mode is *bleep*ing spot on, not just good!
