FIFA 15 More Realistic Than Ever With ‘Agility and Control’

A new video from EA Sports shows off FIFA 15’s “Agility and Control” feature, showing how heightened physics adds responsiveness and fluidity to the gameplay.

It’s no easy task, however. According to the latest edition of Artcraft, the low-polygon heads and texture overlays meant things like facial expressions were simply “painted on” the texture. Blizzard points to a sneering Dwarf lip as an example. Before, it was just a simple addition of a sneering lip texture over the relatively flat character model, but with the new facial customization system in place coming with World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor, a sneer means adjusting the model to pose a sneer, adding the appropriate textures, then meshing “that base pose with all of the existing emotes and animations.”
