FIFA 16: Comparing the Regional Covers and New Features

Football fans will need to wait just a little over a month to nab FIFA 16 when it arrives in store and at online retailers for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One and to tide you over until then, here are the game’s covers in various regions, confirmed stadiums, and other new features which will be making their way into the game.

Argentina and Barcelona captain Lionel Messi is once again the international cover star for FIFA 16 worldwide, appearing on the box art for the fourth year in a row, he will, however, be joined by various other footballers around the world. In all, there will be eight regional covers and, in reflection of the addition of women’s teams for the first time, some of Messi’s co-stars are women players.

It was confirmed earlier this month that the game is adding a new feature called FIFA Ultimate Team Draft, which will work similarly to Madden 16’s Draft Champions. Players will be required to develop a squad of five players in each position from across the game’s Ultimate Team database.

The team you build will then play four matches offline-or-on to unlock a reward, the benefit of which will increase as you progress. Draft means players will have access to top players, including Messi, who they may otherwise not have unlocked through normal Ultimate Team play.

EA has also scanned over 450 players into the game, noting, “In addition to Barclays Premier League players and athletes from Women’s National Teams, we have also captured the likeness of some FUT Legends, and players from the major clubs in Spain and other leagues around the world.”   Buy fut 16 coins
