NBA Live 14, Madden 25, FIFA 14, and UFC Coming to XBOX One

In what was surely one of the biggest gaming events of the year, Microsoft announced their new game console called the XBOX One.  During this announcement, EA Sports executive Andrew Wilson took the stage to show off a little bit about what to expect from sports video games on the new system.

A trailer, available below, displayed the first footage of FIFA 14, Madden 25, UFC, and NBA Live 14.  All of the sports games available on the XBOX One will be built on what is being called the “Ignite Engine.”

A release date for the XBOX one nor the games mentioned above was not released other than that we can expect the XBOX One to be available by the end of the year and that all 4 games will be available within the next 12 months.

More news on both the XBOX One and EA Sports’ next generation titles will be available in a few short weeks at E3.
