EA Sports extends agreement with The Premier League
New player models, broadcast package, and all 20 Club Stadiums in FIFA 15
Electronic Arts today announced that it has extended the existing agreement with The Premier League until the end of the 2018/19 season, which now incorporates the sponsorship of the League’s Goal Decision System.
The new agreement will showcase the Barclays Premier League in FIFA 15, with a high level of detail in the players and all 20 stadiums, as well as the integration of broadcast quality graphics, audio and commentary. The deal has given EA Sports access to all 20 Barclays Premier League clubs to enable the FIFA 15 team to capture 3D head scans of over 200 players, build realistic stadiums for all 20 League clubs, and capture the emotion of the crowd by recording live match atmosphere during the 2013/14 season.
Making its debut in FIFA 15, Goal Decision System will leave no question as to whether or not the ball crossed the line. Replay animations will emulate TV broadcasts playing after close calls and goal line clearances.
FIFA 15, developed at EA Canada, will release in September for PC, Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. A version of FIFA 15 will also release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, and PlayStation Vita. Not all game features are available on all gaming platforms.
