EA Sports has released some info detailing what’s new in NCAA Football 14, dropping this July. The biggest change for this year is the addition of the Infinity Engine 2, which basically is a game engine that incorporates more dynamic animations and collision detection. So rather than automatically dropping after getting hit (as was the norm in previous versions), you’re able to regain your balance, depending on where you get hit (of course). The engine was introduced to last year’s Madden franchise, and now college football is getting the same treatment. If you’re a visual learner like myself, the video explains it all:

The NCAA 14 team also focused more on the college-style option plays, which over 30 new option types to choose from.

There’ll be more info in the coming weeks, so look out for the following:

  • Presentation video (April 18th)
  • NCAA Football Ultimate Team video (May 15th)
  • Dynasty video (May 28th)
  • Play a Season (June 17th)

NCAA Football 14 is out on Tuesday, July 9th for the XBOX 360 and PS3
