Everything You Have To Know about FIFA 16


The game was released on September 22, 2015 in the United States and September 24, 2015 in Europe. The title was met with some outcry over changes made to the series but it was still met with mostly positive reviews from game critics.

While the game was brought to most of the usual platforms such as the PS4, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC and even mobile games, it is not being brought to the Vita or the Nintendo 3DS. That is especially noteworthy considering it’s the first time that the game won’t be offered on some sort of Nintendo platform. The company also changed the way it developed games for the Xbox 360 and the PS3. While many of the features offered in the PS4 and Xbox One and PC are present in the last generation platforms, features like Creation Centre, custom music and chants, the FIFA Interactive World Cup, GameFace, match lobbies and the secondary English commentary from Andy Townsend and Clyde Tyldesley have all been left out of the last generation version of FIFA 16.

Late in the development process, EA Sports had to remove 13 female soccer players from the game, due to threats being made by the NCAA. The athletic association told the video game company that if those 13 players were included in the game, it would jeopardize those players’ eligibility. EA Sports said they didn’t agree with the decision and claimed it had fulfilled all conditions but still took the players out of the game in order to avoid damaging their careers. The 13 players are:

  • Kadeisha Buchanan, Canada
  • Jessie Fleming, Canada
  • Ashley Lawrence, Canada
  • Janine Beckie, Canada
  • Rebecca Quinn, Canada
  • Sura Yekka, Canada
  • Celia Jiménez, Spain
  • Tanya Samarzich, Mexico
  • Greta Espinoza, Mexico
  • Christina Murillo, Mexico
  • Amanda Perez, Mexico
  • Emily Alvarado, Mexico
  • Maria Sanchez, Mexico


In addition to the usual gameplay features that are included in most of the FIFA series games, FIFA 16 has added the revamped Career mode. Players will be able to play in 78 different stadiums, 50 of which are real world venues based and modeled after the actual stadiums. The game has also overhauled the FIFA 16 Ultimate Team mode. While that part of the gameplay has been included in a number of other games in the series. The game has added a new draft mode. The other modes that have been included in the previous games in the series return as well.



All of the men’s FIFA teams that have been included in previous versions of the game’s series return in FIFA 16. The new additions in this game are the women’s teams. There are 12 international women’s teams in this year’s game:

  • Australia
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • China
  • England
  • France
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Mexico
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • United States of America
