There are some things in life that are guaranteed: death, taxes and the annual release of a new Fifa title to coincide with the latest football season.

Fifa 13 is the latest in the long-running franchise and it will hit shelves on September 28th, a week after its main rival Pro Evolution Soccer 2013.

New to this year’s title is the player impact engine, which has enhanced the physical play of the game so that defenders will be able to use their size and strength more than ever to help win possession and break apart opposition attacks.

Tactical free kicks will be a way to create much less predictable spot kicks using dummy runs, creating more passing options and altogether more elaborate attack options after being fouled. The defence will be able to counter through changing the number of players in the wall, moving the wall forward or sending a man forward solo to block the shot.

A new feature called attacking intelligence will improve the way players can try to score goals in the final third through the better analysis of space, curved runs and pull defenders out of position to help other players on the team.

There will also be a variety of new mini-games based on using skills such as dribbling, shooting and passing. Players can set high scores and compare their results against a friend’s to see who the real champion of Fifa is.

The list of stadiums to be included in Fifa 13 has recently leaked, revealing that the Emirates, Stamford Bridge, Old Trafford, Anfield and the City of Manchester Stadium will all be included, along with White Hart Lane and St James’ Park. Outside of England Barcelona’s Nou Camp and Real Madrid’s Bernabeu will be included, among others.

Stadium sound effects are to be enhanced too with crowds finding their voices and becoming louder when certain teams are on the attack, while chants will be clearer and gamers may even hear their manager giving instructions from the sideline.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801445802-ADNFCR
