FIFA 16 features innovations across the pitch to deliver a balanced, authentic and immersive football experience. With the input of the commentator duo Wolff-Christoph Fuss and Frank Buschmann, one of the fans’ most important wishes was fulfilled. The FIFA coach empowers all fans to continuously improve and the introduction of women’s national teams opens up new ways of playing. The new trailer “Play Beautiful” can be seen on Youtube!

Improved defense

Defenders are more agile and defend as a unit to slow down the enemy team and anticipate dangerous advances.

Defensive Agility – Defenders block spaces and can change direction quickly to stay close to opponents. With this new freedom of movement, enemy attacks can be better repelled and passing routes blocked.
Defend as a unit With the new Defensive AI, players can identify dangerous gaps in defense and close those gaps. Other players retreat from the opponent’s rapid advance and try to reduce their offensive passing chances.
Basic principles of the new approach New tackle mechanics and animations increase the chances of winning the ball. Slides, physical and dummy barrels have been reworked to feel even more realistic.

midfield control

Games are decided in the midfield – also in FIFA 16 the importance of the midfield increases. Calm build-up play in own ranks or hard flat passes to the outside: everything is possible.

Intercept messages – Teammates act smarter, anticipating passes and orienting themselves accordingly to block or open passing lanes. They recognize the freedom and ensure a more varied build-up game in the midfield.
Adjust deliberately Enable hard passes that reach teammates precisely.

magical moments

Fascinating game situations arise in FIFA 16. Players now have more skills to outwit opponent’s defense and make a difference.

Dribbling without touching – Players can imitate dribbling without touching the ball, shield the ball and then run over the opponent like Lionel Messi – there are hardly any limits to creativity.
Clinical Grade – The position of the foot and ankle is calculated more accurately, giving the player more opportunities to score goals. You can literally feel where the ball is hit, so you can shoot harder and more accurately.

“This year we looked at every position on the pitch and considered where we wanted to make changes based on fan feedback to create the most balanced and engaging soccer game in FIFA’s long history,” said David Rutter, Vice President and General Manager, EA SPORTS FIFA . “Whether the fans prefer short passes through the middle or crosses from the wing to the box, the beauty of FIFA 16 is that it gives each player the freedom to play their own way to success.”

training and promotion

Thanks to the FIFA coach, every player has the opportunity to develop continuously. The FIFA coach is a training system that gives the player tactical tips depending on the game situation. Fans can now learn what game options they have based on their position on the field and at the manager level through optional in-game graphic overlays. The FIFA trainer can be turned on and off at any time in both offline and online games.
