EA Sports reveals more FIFA 15 details
Next Gen Goalkeepers, team management, and more
Electronic Arts has announced new features for FIFA 15 at gamescom.
Next Gen Goalkeepers in FIFA 15 will now look, move, and think like their real world counterparts with new AI that allows them to anticipate shots and passes, move with positional awareness, and display an array of new animations.
Further, the game adds all 18 clubs from the Turkish Süper Lig and gives the Barclays Premier League an authenticity overhaul. Fans will be able to play FIFA 15 in all 20 stadiums of the Barclays Premier League, with chants captured from live events of the 2013/14 Barclays Premier League season, and new commentary - matches will showcase broadcast overlays that are synonymous with the international TV presentation of the league. And more than 200 new realistic player faces have been 3D scanned and rendered for the title.
FIFA Ultimate Team adds new features to help fans build and manage a team of their football heroes. Loan Players gives fans a chance to determine if FUT players are suitable for their squads by signing players on loan via EA SPORTS Football Club Catalogue and playing with them for a limited number of games. A new squad planning tool Concept Squads gives access to every player available in FIFA Ultimate Team so fans can view team chemistry and plan their next line-up or transfer market move.
In Career Mode, a new Team Management system gives fans the chance to customize up to six different team sheets and alter formations, tactics, and roles based on their next opponent. Team Management also offers the chance to personalize gameplay by assigning up to five different attacking and defending player Instructions to each of the 10 outfield player positions. Instructions dictate the type of attacking runs and defensive positioning players will adopt.
In EA SPORTS Football Club, fans can now share news, interact with friends, and redeem items all via a new contextual widget that provides direct access to the Football Club Catalogue and news feed. The game also adds a live football news hub, Match Day Live. Updated as news is published, and powered by Goal.com, Match Day Live will bring stories, stats, and league tables directly to the FIFA 15 menu.
FIFA 15, developed at EA Canada, will release worldwide in September on 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 this Fall.
