It’s here soccer fans. That wonderful time of the year when you gear up for your favorite team getting ready to take the field at the end of the month (European Leagues) and start eagerly awaiting the release of the newest version of FIFA so you can take over your squad and take them to glory. Well, now we have a better idea of just what exactly will be included in the game after the official trailer for this season’s version was released last night by EA Sports.
First off, well done by the people at EA Sports rocking “At Last” as the theme for this trailer. After a summer of soccer, all gamers want is to play the new version of the game. This year’s slogan is play beautiful, and if nothing else, the visuals of the game are just that: beautiful. We also got a quick sneak peek at the likenesses of USWNT members Abby Wambach and co-cover athlete Alex Morgan.
The game looks to feature updated authentic player likenesses, a new FIFA Ultimate Team Draft feature, along with updates to the gameplay overall. You can see all of the feature videos over on EA Sports FIFA YouTube channel. The game releases on September 25.
