EA today revealed a new feature for its upcoming FIFA 11. The new feature, called "Personality+", will "reinvent play authenticity", allowing players to influence the game based on their own abilities.
“Personality+ is the evolution of individual distinctiveness that sees a footballer’s abilities on the pitch mirrored authentically in our game, creating individual personalities in FIFA 11,” said Executive Producer Kaz Makita. “We have reached a level of sophistication within our game engine where footballers in our game will behave and perform as true individuals.”
Personality+ distinguishes individual footballers from one another by utilising a database that evaluates and grades each player’s skill-set over 36 attributes and 57 traits.
Personality+ plus will be integrated everywhere in-game, and elite players are now empowered to showcase their world class skills.
In addition, goalkeepers have also been injected with Personality+. The real-life personality of the keeper, whether acrobatic or traditional, will dictate his style in game. Dive attributes will determine the keepers with the ability to reach for further shots while reflex attributes determine reaction times.
FIFA 11 is set for release in Spring 2010.
