A recently released gameplay video for "FIFA 16" shows the great improvements to be expected from the game once it becomes available in the market in two months time.

Gizorama said the changes apply "from new goalkeeper logic to updated crossing [and] there appears to be no area of the pitch left untouched."

Sohood report added that the improvements were also centred on "defense, midfield and attack."

The game will also reportedly feature "no touch dribbling" after Lionel Messi was motion captured for the innovative dribble control system giving players "the freedom to decide not just how, but when to touch the ball."

According to Sohood, this innovation changes the 1v1 scenarios and enables players to have more opportunities in their attack strategies.

FIFA 16 is also expected to come with dynamic crossing where strikers will meet the ball while on the run and make their defense.

These features, according to FullFIFA, will come with 6 other new upgraded features for the upcoming game.

"The new gameplay features puts a whole new meaning to gameplay in FIFA and it also brings a lot of tactical changes PES gamers complain about regarding FIFA. Without a question, these improvements are building anticipation for FIFA 16," the same report added.

International Business Times (IBT) reported that Australia's Stephanie Catley will grace the cover of FIFA 16 after EA Sports announced that she "won the global vote, held for the first time in the franchise for the Australian cover of the game."

"Words can't describe the excitement I'm feeling about being on the cover of 'FIFA 16,' it's a dream come true. It's been a huge year for the Westfield Matildas, and getting this recognition from EA SPORTS and FIFA fans for all our hard work is a great step forward for women's football on both a local and global scale," Catley said in a statement quoted by IBT.

The female player will reportedly be the cover of the game along with Lionel Messi.

In an interview with Forbes, FIFA Senior Producer Nick Channon noted that the game development team studied how teams in the game "can defend as one body for the midfield."

They reportedly added new moves which can be executed by players to help them move around the field.

The upcoming FIFA installment is set to be released on the Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on Sept. 22 in North America, Sept. 24 in Australia and Sept. 25 in Europe.
