  • Passes in the game have been reworked so that players in difficult situations can give the ball accurately to create dangerous situations;

  • Now the players are in the wrong gear in one-touch when it can force the situation.

The most beautiful in the game is dribbling. This is some information about it:

  • A new type of dribbling allows you to move your body without touching the ball;

  • You can manage player’s body using LB & RT;

Attempts on target:

  • Strokes are more consistent;

  • Impacts on the run have also undergone changes. More noticeable impact force when the player running at a fast speed and jogging;

  • Advanced Simulation leg will affect the impact, depending on the kicking leg player;

  • Attempts to fly received a number of new animations.

Crosses (races) or speed:

  • Cross in the game become more targeted, in the sense that they are flying at the right time in the open space on the field, not just in the player's feet, which slows down the process before the attack;

  • More movement on the field;

  • Cross became more dangerous weapons in the game;

  • The developers have added a lot of new animations for realistic performance of crosses in FIFA 16.

And the novelty of the EA is the mode “FIFA Trainer”, which will be given tips during the game, appearing above the head of the active player. If you are without the ball, the game will tell you what are the options for selection, if you're with the ball - you will be shown how to properly give a pass or make a canopy.
