There is good news for "FIFA 16" fans as game developer EA recently announced that new teams will be included in the game which is set to be released by the end of the month.

In a post on the EA Sports website, it announced that the new additional Brazilian teams includes Atlético-MG, Atlético-PR, Avaí, Coritiba, Chapecoense, Cruzeiro, Figueirense, Fluminense, Grêmio, Internacional, Joinville, Ponte Preta, Palmeiras, Santos, São Paulo and Vasco da Gama.

Yibada explained that the addition of 16 Brazilian teams was a response of EA to the wishes of the fans of the game. It added that the launch of the game will already include the "crests and kits" of these new teams.

"We have worked to create the best possible experience for FIFA fans in Brazil and around the world to include Brazilian teams. We know FIFA fans love playing with Brazilian players and teams across the game, so adding 16 clubs is positive news for all fans," said EA Brazil Manager Jonathan Harris on the EA Sports post.

The game developer also noted that these additional teams will be available on the Rest of the World team menu and will also be playable in most of the game modes.

"In Career Mode, players on Brazilian clubs will be available in the transfer database for when fans want to acquire them for their campaign. In FIFA Ultimate TeamTM, players on Brazilian Clubs will become available after fans accept and download the update when and if available," explained the blog post on EA's website.

It was also noted in the Yibada report that the addition of players would need an online update once the game is available for their names and visuals.

Meanwhile, Polygon explained that there was no Brazilian team featured last year in FIFA 15 which was blamed to "a change in how players were licensed by Brazil's domestic leagues." The same report also noted that previously, Brazil had a league on FIFA 14 and that the country also plays on the Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 game.

Set to be available on Sept. 22 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC, "FIFA 16" is expected to come with features like the "no touch dribbling" technique of cover star Lionel Messi.

"The outcome is that now players can fake without the ball which will provide an entirely new way of dribbling and beating a man. Any player will be able to do it, but there will be varying levels of skill depending on the player in question's skill level," said Squawka.

In addition, MoviePilot said there will also be 25 expected changes on the game especially in terms of "defensive mechanics featuring improved sliding, fake tackles and in-air tackles."

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