Traditionally, one of the good things about sports games is that they run acceptably on almost any gaming device they release on. It's a reason why so many decide to stick with their PlayStation 3 (PS3) or Xbox 360 a little while longer before taking the plunge to newer consoles or a gaming PC. This however, is about to change if FIFA 16 is any indication.
Publisher Electronic Arts has outlined what features will be available to all platforms and what won't. Although the list of what will make it to last generation consoles is voluminous, some expected elements have been removed.
These include the Creation Centre customisation tool, custom music and chants, access to the FIFA Interactive World Cup tournament (only for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One), match lobbies, GameFace (which lets you upload a photo of yourself and create an EA Sports avatar so you can play as yourself in FIFA), match lobbies, and secondary English commentary with Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend.
If you don't plan to upgrade your PC or purchase a PS4 or Xbox One, don't worry. The core gameplay remains intact with no touch dribbling and improved midfield control. And yes, much touted additions such as FIFA Ultimate Team Draft and Women's National Teams will be present as well.
Still deciding which version of the game to get? We've extensively checked out the FIFA 16 demo on all platforms. Look our for our full teardown soon.
