During EA’s 2015 Gamescom press conference, FIFA 16 got quite a bit of the spotlight, and it was announced that this year’s Career Mode will include pre-season tournaments, a new training mode to boost player stats, and the full representation of the Bundesliga.
Pre-season tournaments will vary depending on your location, however there are nine tournaments that will be available prior to the season commencing which is a massive improvement over the three randomly generated friendlies you’d been given the choice to play previously. The tournaments will boost morale and form and winning will garner you additional funds to use as well, so there’s a good incentive to play them especially if you’re managing a team in a lower league or one that doesn’t have a lot of funds to spend on new players.
Additionally, there’s a new training mode included in this year’s Career Mode as well, which will allow you to bring out either your youth team players or the first team and have them run through one of 30 drills that will boost individual stats.
Finally, the Bundesliga (Germany’s top tier league) will be getting the makeover the Barclay’s Premier League did last year. All of the visual elements will be akin to that of the real Bundesliga alongside stats, players to watch, and so on.
FIFA 16 launches on September 24 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
