New Features of FIFA 15

fifa 15

You can often walk through the halls of any dorm on campus and hear the voice of a British announcer shouting out various lines of dialogue at the top of his lungs. The commentary, a late night time frame and a room full of competitive students create the whole experience that makes FIFA so great.
The most recent version of the game was released this year on Sept. 23. It is available for all major consoles and it boasts a load of new features such as emotional intelligence. The players not only look extremely realistic but also will be able to shake their head at that mind-blowing shot your opponent delivered with Ronaldo from outside the eighteen.

For all you FIFA players, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. FIFA 15 is just one of many games that make up this series. Since its start in 1993, a statistic from EA Sports shows that FIFA has sold over 100 million copies around the world. Currently, the game is available in 18 languages and 51 countries.
For all of you soccer, or should I say “futbol”, lovers out there, the newest edition of the game presents a stunning list of 35 leagues and over 600 clubs. FIFA 15 includes 41 stadiums that look so identical to the real venues that it’s a little bit scary.
Despite all of this, one of the most impressive features of the game is EA’s facial capture technology. Led by Nigel Nunn, a few members of the EA Sports team set up 18 specially placed cameras. Players from clubs around the world were invited to the studio to get their picture taken in front of the cameras. The images were then converted into digital replicas of the players to create the most realistic experience possible.
For those of you want-to-be coaches, you can take advantage of the Career Mode which lets you build up a squad from scratch and progress through a series of seasons.
You have the ability to trade players, adjust lineups, sign contracts and do just about anything that occurs in the daily life of a team manager. If you fail to record a successful season, however, the possibility of being fired becomes a real threat. Trust me, it can happen. This newly improved feature of FIFA 15 adds to the realistic vibe that EA Sports is trying to present.
Regardless of all the technical aspects of the game, FIFA 15 is first and foremost a social pastime that you and all of your friends can enjoy. “Sometimes I feel like playing FIFA is almost as good as watching soccer on TV,” freshman Henry Greer said. “I think that FIFA is a great game series for Americans to get into because soccer is a game of the world, and by playing, we are getting a bit of international exposure.”
So when you’re feeling stressed out, kick back with some friends, grab a few beverages, and try to forget about the exam studying that’s right around the corner.

Which Tottenham players should be rated higher on FIFA 15?

EA will roll out their January update in a few weeks, so who should move up for Tottenham ?

FIFA 15 players


Ben Davies Current Overall: 73 Projected Overall: 75

Danny Rose may have been the first choice Tottenham left back earlier this season, but summer signing Ben Davies has recently supplanted him in the first team.

The Welshman is rated at 73 overall on FIFA 15, which is one lower than Rose’s 74 overall, but expect that to change in January.

Davies should see upgrades in his speed, stamina and passing ability, which should see him bumped up to around 75 overall in January.

Ryan Mason Current Overall: 67 Projected Overall: 71

Mason has surprisingly made himself a first team regular under Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, despite being farmed out on loan a number of times in recent years.

In FIFA 15, Mason is still represented as a fringe player with a 67 overall rating, but his consistently impressive displays will surely warrant an upgrade when the January squad update is released.

Expect to see upgrades made to Mason’s passing ability, dribbling, ball control, defensive attributes and stamina, all of which should push Mason up to around 71 overall – a much fairer representation of his play this season, as the stats below show that he’s at least as good as the average Premier League midfielder.

Position Team Season Accurate Passes Touches Forward Passes Appearances Mins Played
Ryan Mason MF Tottenham 2014-2015 418 659 194 9 758
Average Joe 372 682 168 14 1,031

Harry Kane Current Overall: 73 Project Overall: 75

Whilst Mason’s rise has been something of a surprise, the same can’t really be said of Kane, who has been knocking on the door for a while.

With nine goals in 16 games this season, Kane is due for an upgrade from his current 73 rating in FIFA 15, and his impressive displays will surely make EA improve him accordingly.

Improvements to the Tottenham player’s finishing, dribbling, strength, reactions and attack positioning are to be expected, which should see him rise to at least 75 overall, possibly even higher in January.

The stats show Kane’s improvement in most of these areas in comparison to last season, which is what his current FIFA 15 attributes are based upon.

Position Team Season Successful Dribbles Shots on goal Shots on target Goals Appearances Mins Played
Harry Kane FW Tottenham 2014-2015 13 19 10 2 10 455
Harry Kane FW Tottenham 2013-2014 5 28 12 3 10 499

‘Record Breaker’ Messi card in FIFA Ultimate Team

Last week, EA launched a brand new Messi card for FIFA 15. It was a unique card designed for Barcelona FC star Messi, in celebration of the player breaking the record for the most goals scored in La Liga in history and also breaking the record for most goals scored in Champions League history as well.

Now EA are awarding the player with the ‘Record Breaker’ Messi card in FIFA Ultimate Team, which comes with an amazing 95 rating. This is an increase in two overall from his 93 that shipped with the game and also an increase on the 94 in-form card that he has already earned for his performances this season.

Players have the chance to win this special card for a whole week, with EA making exceptions given the fact that it’s a special one-off card.


Now we have an image comparison to show you, giving you an exact breakdown in the stat differences between Messi’s new card and the recent in-form card.

A 97 Dribble, 95 Pace and 93 Shooting ability is pretty incredible and if you manage to pull out this card your FIFA 15 Ultimate Team is going to get a serious upgrade.

Having said that, we can already bring you the first Messi record breaker in a pack reaction, as one lucky player has already managed to pull this out of a pack.

Even better, he filmed his reaction and you can see it by watching the video below – make sure you watch until the very end to see Messi.

What are your thoughts on this new card – have you been lucky to get one yourself? If you want to get one,please go to FIFA
