FIFA 12: First official video shows Impact System

Kevin Davies set to kick lumps out of virtual footballers

FIFA 12 previews are set to go live this afternoon, but already the first official video has leaked online.

The fresh footage, following on from last week's off-screen video, shows off the game's new Impact System, which will see players react to tackles depending on exactly where and how an impact hits their body, as opposed to relying on a handful of animations depicting stumbles and falls.

"The result is physical play that looks astonishingly authentic," OXM said of the feature, noting that specific injuries will also be based on new physics recognition (which has its biggest impact in career modes) and stronger players will be more resilient.
