Posted on May 21, 2013 AT 10:43am

EA has announced a new partnership with Microsoft and will be developing four sports games for Xbox One, FIFA 14Madden NFL 25NBA Live 14 and UFC. If that wasn’t enough, all of these games will use a new engine known as EA Sports Ignite.

All four of these games will be available in the next 12 months and use a next generation engine which will change the face of sports games forever. The EA Sports Ignite Engine takes into account player emotions, motion, and intelligence. The engine also allows developers to generate 3D crowds, a genuine atmosphere, and new daily content for its games.

“Through years of investment and innovation, we have built technology across EA Sports to create a game engine that will deliver stunning accuracy, realism and experiences that we previously could only dream about,” said Andrew Wilson, executive vice president and head of EA Sports. “With EA Sports Ignite and the power of next generation consoles, our games will come alive—with more authenticity, more emotion, more connectivity, and more fun.”

“EA Sports Ignite will deliver the dynamic movements and biomechanics of the world’s best athletes. With 10 times more animation depth and detail than previous consoles, and thousands of new sport-specific animations to drive new locomotion systems, players now plant, pivot and cut, quickly change speeds, and shift momentum with the agility and explosiveness of superstar athletes,” the publisher explained.

The publisher also mentioned that FIFA 14 Ultimate Team will “only be on Xbox.”
