    Great Video really gives an insight for those interested in working in Software Development... I'm not one of those unfortunately ;) However I'm a bit concerned at the FIFA 06 style Presentation for that Current-gen style looking screen, also Europe being drawn in shades of Red isnt too promising either, Where's the cool satelite globe :(

    It seems to me that overall as a group they miss the point. i mean to build a 10 millon dollar motion capture room and just have local staff kick around a ball is horrible. i never knew why they didn't just have motion capture from either real game footage or real players? It might cost money but hey they did spend 10 mil on the studio right? Plus the AI department doesn't even refrence any real matches it just relys on it's computers determination on where the ball goes? i mean they should lokk at real footage?! I am not hopeful but i'll still get it as I'm a football game whore....:lui:

    i am wondering whether half the staff on the game even know what real soccer is like, they need to get out more, i agree on the motion capture as well, the guy in the black tights cant do jack **** with a ball, no wonder we get ssuch a crap game, they need to get out and play soccer, watch soccer, live soccer, breathe, sleep and eat soccer every day to know what real soccer is, then we're talking

    2006 WC Developer Diary 3

    Developer Diary #3
    2006 FIFA World Cup - Global Challenge


    We bring you exclusively thanks to Electronic Arts the lastest developer diary, which focuses on one of the game modes in "2006 FIFA World Cup": Global Challenge. Here you will find further information about it and the full list of matches included in this mode.

    In 2006 FIFA World Cup, EA SPORTS introduces a new game mode called Global Challenge that recreates 40 classic moments in FIFA World Cup history using modern teams. Users are placed into these classic moments to see if they can re-write history and earn rewards to unlock legendary players and classic apparel.

    Producer Joe Nickolls on Global Challenge:
    The Global Challenge mode is another way to play the game that only presents a real challenge for gamers but it’ll resonate with World Cup fans around the globe.

    We began to look at past World Cups and decided there were some magical moments that people all over the world have never forgotten. We took some these historical scenarios and re-created them in game, enabling users to play in the scenarios using modern teams to relive and perhaps change history.

    The further you progress through the scenarios, the more reward points you earn which can be taken to the store to redeem against all kinds of cool stuff, whether it’s a classic player, a kit, a new ball or a feature that will enable you to alter gameplay. Some of the gameplay rewards we offer through this challenge include playing the game at super-speed, without referees, or even having invisible walls around the pitch so you can execute ‘bank’ passes.

    Maybe there are some hidden away, I didnt see MEX vs USA for example, but there was a screen of it... (:/) But still all those matches from 2004/2005 can still be played from the actual qualifying mode for the WC, so why would they put them as seperate challenges...?

    If only Wembley was ready! :( We might see the updated Old Trafford but that's very recent so I highly doubt it. :P

    New advanced shooting mechanics

    In our other FIFA games when you are shooting you have to hold down the button to determine how hard you shoot the ball. What we found is that as you come in on goal users get excited and hold down the button far too long, blasting the ball over the bar, and sending it way off target. That was frustrating for users. In 2006 FIFA World Cup when you hold the shoot button down now it will control the angle of the shot. So if you hold the button down longer it will increase the angle of the shot and if you just tap the button the shot will be low. We take care of the power and kind of shot for you.

    The shooting model has been much improved with context sensitive AI. Shooting now takes into account distance and angle from goal. Also pressure from defending players will have a direct effect on the success of the shot.

    I guarantee that people who play World Cup will see shots they have never seen before because we’re giving assistance to make the shot more realistic. On top of that we’ve tuned the physics of the ball. The ball can now deflect off the keeper, hit the cross-bar then fall back in front of the goal giving the striker another chance to be knocked in and enabling more variety in the types of shots. You don’t want the user to become bored. You want diversity in the kinds of shots you take like sliding kicks, diving headers etc.


    Years behind. Other football games have implemented this years ago.
