Sports games: the bane of most EA press conferences. FIFA 16 has always looked out of place at E3 – everyone remembers the infamous Pele interview – but in Cologne it was at home, showing off some new features and dispelling all of the "just another roster update" rumours.
The new headline feature is FUT Draft, shown off by former players Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville in a tense, banter-filled segment, which allows you to create a dream draft team without any cash and earn rewards: do you go for team chemistry, or do you just pick the fastest players? Probably the latter, if you're a FIFA player.
Career mode has also been updated with two new features: Pre-Season Tournaments allow you to play in three tournaments before the season and grow your transfer budget, while Player Training allows you to train and work with players individually in order to help them to grow and enhance their stats, with 30 drills to keep your players on their toes.
There's also more gameplay improvements: no-touch dribbling, improved AI, more goalkeeping animations, and more agile defenders. To top it all off, 900 new chants, nine new stadiums, 12 new Women's National Teams, and plenty of new celebrations.
Is this enough to warrant a purchase, or is this just another cash-grab? Pass your thoughts to us in the comments section below.
