EA defends the absence of Frosbite in FIFA 18 for Nintendo Switch

2017-09-18 14:03

Although the first tests of FIFA 18 in Nintendo Switch are very positive, some users criticize hard that this version of the game does not run with the powerful graphic engine Frosbite that has given so many good results in this franchise as in other games like Battlefield. EA has come to the pass explaining that this graphic engine was never born thinking about this platform and therefore the adaptation would have been really complicated. The company defends that the version of Switch is a very powerful final project and a title in laptop conditions.

On EA words: "As much as we would have liked to use Frostbite, we could not make it work. We have intentionally decided to create a custom engine because we thought that if we had used Frostbite we would have had to take things off and make a smaller and lower quality version compared to PS4 and Xbox One; we wanted this to be a fit FIFA. We want people to recognize it and play it instead of saying: it's a **** and a second-rate game. This is a complete FIFA players will enjoy."

As already revealed the other day, the game is able to run in television mode at 1080 resolution and 60 frames per second, something never seen in the versions of PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, of which EA wanted to mark the distances to the Nintendo console. "If you put the two games side by side you do not recognize them," they said in relation to the differences with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Although it is clear that the game will not reach the latter, it will be a version capable of dealing with them.

Remember that the version for Nintendo Switch includes all the game modes of the rest of platforms except for the second season of "The Journey" mode that will be exclusive to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

FIFA 18 Coins will go on sale on September 29 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Nintendo Switch, platform for which the company has also confirmed that it will have available demo of the game before its release. Also FUT 18 Coins Nintendo Switch will be available the same day.
