Prior to a fresh edition of FIFA being released, it's inevitable that fans and gamers everywhere will want to have a glimpse of the game's best new features.
Now, with the launch of FIFA 16 mere weeks away, EA Sports has given them just that. As a juicy pre-game morsel, the game developer has revealed a variety of new features for the FIFA career mode - some of them are very exciting indeed.
In this clip, several key changes to the game are explained. The overall idea seems to be that the new FIFA will be a more realistic and immersive experience - a detailed and lifelike career mode will play a big part in it.
First of all, proper pre-season tournaments will be added to manager mode - as well as providing opportunities to effectively test your squad, they can also swell your transfer kitty if negotiated successfully. Even more exciting is the innovative new system for training, both as a manager and a player - it seems that gamers will have extensive control over pre-match preparations from now on.
Add to that a more detailed approach to commentary, pre-match stats, a few key tweaks to transfers and an all-year-round scouting system, and suddenly the prospect of the game's release is ridiculously exhilarating.
