The lights are on
With the World Cup about to engulf the globe, now is a good time for EA Sports and developer EA Canada to unveil some of the first details about FIFA 15, out this fall.
We recently saw the game running on the new-gen systems (it will come out on the old systems, but we don't know that feature set yet), and the dev team is starting to capitalize on getting more time with the platforms. A new player emotion system and body model, overhauled lighting system, and improved A.I. are steps forward for a franchise that had a good debut on the new consoles, but which didn't truly wow. Here are the first things we noticed.
These are just the first details for the title. Expect much more – including info on the game modes – to follow. Hopefully the series can continue to ascend and use the new-gen systems to separate itself from some of the problems it faced in the last generation.
FIFA 15 comes out this fall for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Other platforms will likely be announced in the future.

I don't play Fifa, but the trailer looked pretty impressive for sure.
I must say the fifa series is making some serious strides in the sports genre that every other sports game will have to try and live up to.
FIFA has always been boss! Best sports game franchise ever!
