Video game 'FIFA 22' gets more realism thanks to 22-player motion capture matches

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

To bring more realism to "FIFA 22," EA Sports went to extremes on the pitch โ€“ and brought inclusivity to its announcing team. The video game publisher had 22 players put on Xsens motion capture suits and then play competitive matches in Spain. All that data โ€“ more than 8.7 million frames of advanced match capture, EA Sports says โ€“ will be used to create real-time soccer gameplay animations as players mash controller buttons. And the game maker also is bringing its first female announcer to the game: Alex Scott, who played for the English national team and Arsenal of the Women's Super League. "This is a big moment for FIFA, for football and women and girls across the world," she said on Twitter and Instagram.
