FIFA 15: Features
EA Sports says that FIFA 15 “brings football to life in stunning detail so you can experience the emotion of the sport like never before.” Here’s a look at some of the key and new features of FIFA 15.
The developer says that for the first time ever, players in the game will have memories and react to what’s happening in the context of the game. This means more than 600 new emotional reactions to things like bad tackles, missed chances and, of course, goals.
Dynamic match presentation includes improved commentary, chants and behaviours relevant to your club or country, new bench reactions, side line character animations and 10-man goal celebrations.
Teammates and opponents will now recognize what’s happening in the match and will adjust their tactics accordingly. ‘Park the Bus’, ‘In The Mixer’, and ‘Time Wasting’ are all included in FIFA 15.
As you would expect from a next-gen game, visuals are improved, according to EA. For example, player faces have a new level of detail and kits move realistically and get dirty as the match goes on. The pitch will also deteriorate over time with boot marks, slide tackles and debris. Corner flags move and goal frames shake adding to the experience.
Set piece control means you can adjust the position of players who are off the ball during throw-ins, corners, and free-kicks (above).
