FIFA 16 will coach you into mastering the beautiful game

With the help of footballing icon Pele, FIFA producer David Rutter unveiled the latest instalment in the long-running football game franchise

Having already confirmed that womens teams would be playable for the first time already, Rutter revealed the team had been working on adding the feature for a few years and used motion capturing with existing players to build the natural movement into FIFA 16.

There’ll be twelve national teams including England, China, Germany, the United States and Sweden.

On the pitch, FIFA 16 seeks to make improvements at the back, in midfield and up front. You’ll now be able to keep better defensive shape, encourage more intelligent interceptions in the congested central midfield areas and have more skills at your disposal to leave defenders trailing in your path.

Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has been motion captured to add a new ‘no touch dribbling’ feature where you can let the ball do the work to help create more explosive attacks.

If you’re a new to FIFA, EA Sports has added a Trainer mode, which creates a graphical overlay to suggest the best options to pick during the game. Whether it’s switching the play or sending it out wide for the winger to hug the touchline. If you don’t want to use it, it can be switched off.

The FIFA 16 release date is September 22nd 2015 and will be available for PC, Xbox One, PS4 and PS3. There were no details on Vita or 3DS versions, which EA is reported to have ditched for this year’s installment.
