FIFA 14 has been announced by EA, and this is kind of a shocking news… OK not really. But the game contains a bunch of new features and we also have some screenshots for it.

The game will be released on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. No Wii U version has been revealed which is a bit weird because they there’s no point in hiding that version. They did say that more platforms will be announced later.

“FIFA 14 will play the way great matches are contested with build up through midfield, tension throughout the match as chances are created, and incredible finishing,” said David Rutter, Executive Producer for FIFA 14. “Opportunities in FIFA 14 will be rewarding and great goals will look stunning.”

There are some new features like Pure Shot and Real Ball Physics and here’s a description of that:

Finishing has been transformed with Pure Shot so players have the intelligence to adjust their stride and approach angle to find the best position for hitting the back of the net. Well-hit balls feel more exhilarating and rewarding. New shot types include pure strikes, as well as off-balance and rushed shots. Plus, Real Ball Physics now determines the trajectories of balls, enabling players to kick the ball with force from distance, drill low rising shots with accuracy, and blast dipping or turbulent shots, just like real players.

There’s no release date for the game yet but it will probably be released sometime later this year. The game contains 500 officially licensed clubs as well.

It’s been known for some time that Nintendo is preparing its next-generation Wii U for a big holiday push and now a reported leak from a third-party accessory maker may have identified 18 November as the day the new game console hits shelves.

That date was listed in a presentation delivered at a GameStop management conference in Texas by accessory-maker PDP, Kotaku , citing an anonymous attendee whose account appeared to be backed up by a poster on the NeoGAF message board.

Wii U – It’s gonna be big

“A rep for PDP was showing the company’s fall line-up at the conference and wrapped their presentation by saying the peripherals would be available just ahead of the Wii U’s November 18 release date,” Kotaku cited its source as saying.

A PDP executive has unequivocally denied that the company leaked the Wii U release date, saying it was an impossibility.

After the Kotaku post went live, a PDP spokesperson sought to downplay the company’s possible knowledge of Nintendo’s Wii U plans.

“At this time we can’t confirm Nintendo’s dates and we don’t know exactly what was heard, but we simply do not know that this point. We are launching accessories, but the date for the accessories doesn’t mean a confirmation on the hardware. If you seek confirmation on the date that is something that is going to need to go specifically though Nintendo, but we can’t confirm or deny dates on any of their hardware,” PDP community manager Candace Hinton told Kotaku.

But Kotaku’s Stephen Totilo reckoned the 18 November date, a Sunday, had the ring of truth to it given Nintendo’s history of product releases on that specific day in that specific month. The Wii and the GameCube were also launched on Sundays in November, he noted. 18 November, meanwhile, is the last Sunday before Black Friday this year, another strong sign pointing towards the veracity of the PDP leak.

Nintendo is releasing its new console a full year before rivals Microsoft and Sony unleash their own successors to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 .

Ubisoft hasn’t been shy about revealing “Assassin’s Creed 3” footage and screenshots to eager fans. The latest clip from the third installment in the history-based franchise was revealed at San Diego’s Comic-Con festival, where new multiplayer screens and a walkthrough level was showcased.

“Assassin’s Creed 3” will take place in both New York and Boston, and will include historical landmarks from each location.

“The overall vibe of the city, the overall feel of the buildings around those landmarks is completely fresh,” Hutchinson said in the video.

Protagonist Connor will also be able to use hiding spots, such as wagons carrying bales of hay, to assassinate his victims. According to Hutchinson, “Assassin’s Creed 3” will also incorporate more side missions into the gaming experience. As players move through the levels, they will encounter characters that offer the opportunity to help them.

“As much as possible, we want to make the world feel alive and believable,” Hutchinson said.

The combat found in the game has been re-done “from the ground up,” and Connor’s specialty lies in using two weapons at the same time.

“We worked very hard on the flow of combat so your flow as a player is to continue your kill chain by using appropriate moves,” he said.

However, some revelations made at Comic-Con were not as positive for fans. Ubisoft has delayed the PC version of “Assassin’s Creed 3” past the targeted release date, but has not specified why. Hutchinson announced the news during a panel this week, and has said that PC version will be launched around the same time as console game.

Earlier this week, Ubisoft also revealed information about its upcoming PlayStation Vita title “Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation,” which was unveiled at E3 2012. A new trailer was officially released on Wednesday, and follows the new female assassin, Aveline, as she leaps around the city of New Orleans. The game will take place in the year 1765, right in the heart of the Revolution, which means players are likely to see some overlap with Connor’s storyline. “Assassin’s Creed: Liberati

on” is set for a release date of October 30 along with “Assassin’s Creed 3.”
