PC gamers rejoice! EA Sports have announced that the PC version of FIFA 12 will be powered by the newly developed Player Impact Engine, the very same one that's powering the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.
EA initially announced that only the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions would run on the new engine, with PC and every other platform version left out of the spotlight. This is certainly good news for the PC demographic. As EA puts it, it's the "first time ever" that the PS3, Xbox 360 andPC versions will run on the same technology.
"This is the moment all PC gamers have been waiting for, as they are finally going to fully experience the award-winning FIFA gameplay on their preferred platform," said Kaz Makita, Executive Producer of FIFA Soccer 12. "PC fans are going to enjoy the highest quality gameplay, deepest game modes and truest graphics ever developed for the platform, including our new live service EA SPORTS Football Club."
The Player Impact Engine delivers on some "major innovations." An all new animation system, Precision Dribbling, Tactical Defending and Pro Player Intelligence come together to create the most authentic soccer experience to date. You can read more on the engine through here.
FIFA 12 is out September 27 in North America and September 30 worldwide for PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii, PS2, 3DS and PSP. Only the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC versions are powered by the new engine.
