Key Features :


Personality+ — A player’s performance on the pitch is mirrored authentically in game, creating clearly differentiated players with individual personalities. Personality+ at every position and for every player reinvents how players perform—on and off the ball.

Pro Passing System — A new passing system where pass accuracy is determined by a gamer’s ability on the control pad, and player skill, situation and urgency on the pitch. Poor decisions or over/under striking the ball will mean error-prone outcomes. New types of passes such as swerve passes will enable players to make a safer and more effective play.
360° Fight For Possession — True freedom in man-to-man interactions, transforming physical play from individual lateral jostling to full 360° collisions involving multiple players.

PC version won't really be similar per se, it will be a blend of Fifa10 next gen and the World Cup game, it won't be the same as Fifa11 on PS3/360 but it will use some of its technologies.

It's going to be this year's number one football game again, fo sho.

The player models look absolutely fantastic; Mikel's face in the last picture is scarily realistic, while the overall colour palette is now a lot more subtle.
