Fifa 16 will launch on Xbox One this September and developer EA have announced this years cover star. Once again EA’s pick is FC Barcelona’s star player Lionel Messi.
The foreground is an action shot of Messi with the background containing a handful of players, naturally blurred, some in FC Barcelona’s iconic strip with others seen in a white strip. This white strip is a resemblance of the classic Real Madrid kit that has graced the field in many a famous El Classico, the highlight of the La Liga season when Barcelona play arch rivals Real Madrid.
At a later date EA will announce the cover star for the local versions of the game, a vote is currently underway in each country to choose which star it will be and that vote will end today, you can read more about the vote here. This means we will have to wait a little while to see which Premiership star will grace the cover of the UK version of the game.
