FIFA 15 cover star is Messi
Top footballer once again selected for the box art of the annual game
EA Sports has announced that Argentina and Barcelona icon Leo Messi is the FIFA 15 global cover star.
This is Messi’s fourth appearance on a FIFA cover after featuring on FIFA Street, FIFA 13, and FIFA 14. In that time, Messi has set the record for most goals in a year (91) and marked a milestone as the only player to receive the FIFA Ballon d’Or four times.
This past season, the 27 year old had 28 league goals for FC Barcelona and captained Argentina to the FIFA World Cup final. During the World Cup Messi won four Man of the Match awards, scored four times and received the Golden Ball award for best player of the tournament.
As with previous FIFA releases, there will be a number of regional covers featuring local talent with Messi.
FIFA 15 is set to release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC in late September. A version of the game will also release on Xbox 360 and PS3.
