While Argentina lost the game to Germany last Sunday, it is still a win for Lionel Messi. Lionel Messi is Argentina?s forward and is widely considered as the best player in the world. He was awarded the World Cup 2014 Golden Ball as the tournament?s best player. In addition, he will appear on the cover of FIFA?s next installment.
Through the years, Lionel Messi has been an achiever. He scored 28 goals for FC Barcelona this past season, got four in the World Cup, and EA?s Sports Football Ambassador 2011. Messi already appeared on covers of previous FIFA installments.
Lucky for him, he will be the cover star of the upcoming video game, FIFA 15. This will be his 4th appearance on the cover of the successful EA franchise. The game will be released this coming September 23 for Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. The new installment for the FIFA franchise features immense ?emotional intelligence?. The feature will create more ?life like? reactions from the characters. The developers for the upcoming FIFA 15 are still experimenting about the said feature.
The outcome of the game will not only depend on the capability of the player. ?Additional improvements to ball physics, character handling, advanced team tactics, and overall gameplay are being polished.
FIFA series has been criticized several times for being repetitive. Critics say EA seems to mess it up even more. However, according to producer Aaron McHardy:
?We know what we accomplish every year, and people do notice. There will always be naysayers when you have a game coming out every year, who say things like, ?It?s just an update.? But I find a lot of those people, when they do pick up and play against a previous year?s game, they see how different it really is.?
