Physics have been improved massively in FIFA 23, fascinating footage shows.
This year's game will be final edition under its current iteration and will instead be known as 'EA Sports FC' going forward.
It's therefore a watershed moment for the title, with the game needing to deliver on its worldwide release on 30 September.
And one of the big improvements made in order to make the game as authentic as possible involves enhanced physics.
In the deep dive gameplay 'Pitch Notes', it's revealed that shots blocked from defenders can now result in wicked deflections that completely change the direction of the ball.
Furthermore, deflections will also determine the manner in which a goalkeeper reacts. The keeper's arms, hands and fingers will be pushed by the ball after deflections and subsequent scrambling saves.
In the same way, player's legs and feet can also be pushed away by the ball depending on its impact.
There's also been an update when it comes to nets and this year the goal nets will respond accordingly to players colliding into them.
For the next-gen consoles, which allow cross-play for the first time ever, further realism can be found in the refinements to the shape of the nets.
Falls and stumbles are more genuine than ever but players will display more intelligence and refrain from running into opponents after performing a skill.
The video of all these aforementioned changes shows how a big difference they will make to the overall experience of the game.
As they always do, the FIFA community have been having their say on the alterations.

So they made deflections more common but it’s okay because they added finger animations 🔥— TomMMIV (@MmivTom) July 28, 2022
So that’s £80 just to see a goalkeepers hand doing what it should be doing against a ball? FIFA you have to stop excelling like this m, ePES might catch up with you.— Curtis (@CurtisUtd21) July 28, 2022
The Hypermotion 2 technology - available on the newer consoles - includes a FIFA-first motion capture of a high-intensity 11v11 women’s match - and data from five training drills - to bring about "more high-fidelity, true-to-life animations".
In total, from both the male and female captures, there are more than 6000 HyperMotion-enabled animations that make players "move and play more responsively and realistically than ever before".
