FIFA 15 release date confirmed for September 26

The FIFA 15 release date has been confirmed, with EA Sports’ latest football sim to hit retailers on September 26.

With the footballing world currently focussed on Brazil and the 2014 FIFA World Cup, EA has given gamers something to look forward to, with the late September FIFA 15 release date to see the eagerly awaited game land on current and past-gen consoles.

One of the highlights of E3 2014, FIFA 15 was last week confirmed for launch on the recently released Xbox One and PS4. Now, EA has revealed the full console list set to receive its latest football offering.

“A version of FIFA 15 will also release on the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system this Fall,” an official EA spokesperson stated.

As you might expect given the breadth of these consoles’ capabilities, they added: “Not all game features are available on all gaming platforms.

Although the Xbox One and PS4 iterations of the game are set to steal the show, the PS Vita, Wii and 3DS versions will be ‘Legacy’ titles, meaning they are the same game as previous years, albeit with updated player rosters.

While the PS3 and Xbox 360 copies of FIFA 15 are set to feature more stripped back feature lists, it is currently unclear which elements of the PES 2015 rival will be missing from the aging consoles.

Having already sampled FIFA 15 on the Xbox One, we were hugely impressed with the next-gen advancements the series has made.

With evolving pitches and new player and ball physics, FIFA 15 has also focused on adding the emotion of football, with players and crowds now reacting more accurately to the in-game action.

The September 26 FIFA 15 UK release date will follow the game’s September 23 arrival in the US.
