Premier League

Fifa 16

It's almost THAT time of year again, so why not get excited!

FIFA 16 comes out next month and it's time to get excited as the latest edition is coming with a load of shiny new features! 

In recent years we've seen the likes of fancy first touch controls, changes to defending and an impact engine which has brought us some HILARIOUS videos. This year's edition doesn't just have one feature to get giddy over, though, it's got bloomin' loads! 

New Stadiums 

If you've played Ultimate team at all, you'll know that the stadium options are a little limited. Sure, there's the Camp Nou, Wembley and all of the Premier League clubs, but now we've got the addition of Vicarage Road, Carrow Road, Fratton Park and the rather tiny Vitality Stadium. That'll give you chance to chop and change stadiums every week until you find one that doesn't have any ruddy rain! 

Vanishing Spray

The highlight of last year's World Cup for pretty much everyone that wasn't a German, the magic spray is now making the move into video games. This will be great for the first few games you play but you're sure to just start skipping past it and getting mad because you want to just get on with the game.

Women's Football 

To the outrage of sexists everywhere, FIFA 16 will include a host of Women's National teams - with the likes of England, USA and Germany all playable. After the success of the Women's World Cup, we can't wait to get our own back on Japan and get Laura Bassett to score the winning goal. 

Ultimate Team Draft Mode

Can't afford to buy those expensive players? No problem, you can use the draft mode to play a friendly game and get to pick from the likes of Lionel Messi, Eden Hazard or erm... Daryl Janmaat to give you a taste of what it's like to have someone good in your side. It doesn't end there, as you can win prizes by playing in special tournaments with your team, which costs 15K to enter. 

Just don't have an argument like these two plonkers... 

New Legends

Another feature you might not get to use unless you're loaded, FIFA 16 will have a load of new legends in Ultimate Team. Do you miss kicking people with Gennaro Gattuso as much as we do? Good, because he's back, along with Ryan Giggs and George Best! 

You can actually defend

Unless you pay attention for every dying second or you make a tiny error, you're probably going to get punished on FIFA. However, FIFA 16 has revamped the way players defend and gives you the ability to change direction more realistically and pull out of those horror slide tackles which are sure to see your player sent for an early bath! 

So, come on, who is excited?
