Electronic Arts unbeiled EA Sports Ignite, a new game engine that will power EA Sports games on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Fueled by EA Sports Ignite, EA Sports games will be alive with players who think, move, and behave like real athletes and dynamic living worlds, transforming the way people play and experience games on next gen consoles. Created with the EA Sports Ignite engine, Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, NBA LIVE 14, and EA Sports UFC, will each launch within the next 12 months.
EA Sports Ignite blends new technology with the best rendering, run-time physics, animation, intelligence, locomotion, and online systems from across EA into one powerful, new engine.
