PES 2014 will “blur the line between the sport and simulation”

1 min read


If you fancy yourself some footie games then you’ll be happy to know Havok has set out to provide enhanced physics and animations in Pro Evolution Soccer 2014.

Arnaud Saint-Martin, Asia Regional Director at Havok has said that the team is dedicated to “pushing the boundaries” of what can be done in a football game.

“We think football fans will appreciate how Havok technology will blur the line between the sport and simulation, and provide a football experience that looks as real as can be.”, he said.

PES 2014 will offer enhanced Havok Physics and Cloth Technology where each on-field player will be simulated. Their movements will be naturally represented according to their mass and physique.

Now I’ve watched the above video in HD and I don’t really see these enhanced physics and animations, but I’m no football game expert. What say you? Does this look like the best football game heading our way?

    The problem with yearly releases is that they all tend to look the same which creates the effect as illustrated below.

      but pes 2014 will be different, its got a new engine, its FIFA who you are relating that pic to, its full of the same crap every year.

      But now it has realistic physics. No longer will a full grown 80kg man be blown down by a puff of air moving at 1m/hr.

        You’re wrong on that account. In real life full grown 80kg men do fall down at the slightest breeze. It’s called diving.

      lol that explains it exactly.
      they all the same old same old.
      I dont see what they are so excited about with this engine, still looks like the last cat they let out the bag.
