The renewed deal between EA Sports and the Premier League is adding a bunch of new features to the soccer game.

CVG reported that the publisher is still the Official Sports Technology Partner of the Premiere League, with the deal extending the partnership until the 2018 to 2019 season. More than teaming up with what Game Spot descries as Great Britain's most competitive soccer league, the deal brings EA Sports' sought-after "game realism" into fruition.

With the said game realism in mind, the publisher offers "FIFA 15" gamers "a level of content that [they've] never done in one year before," Nick Channon, senior producer of the title, told CVG.

First in line are the additional twelve new Premiere League stadiums on top of the existing eight in the game. Apart from twenty realistic stadiums, "FIFA 15" gamers will also witness a realistic recreation of the ambience in real-life games which according to CVG is achieved by "recording live match atmosphere."

"The emotion and feeling of the game not only comes from what the players are doing on the pitch, but from the crowd audio as well," Channon told the outlet.

In addition to new stadiums and a more realistic crowd, EA Sports also made use of 3D scans to create "more accurate models" of more than 200 soccer players, CVG said. "FIFA 15" soccer player characters will also have "visible breathing and hair movement" as well as "shirt-pulling and player-specific movements," said Game Spot.

The goal line technology, first witnessed during the 2014 FIFA World Cup, will also make it to the game, Game Spot reported. "Developer EA Sports is trying to make even virtual goals impossible to doubt, so it has made a replay system for FIFA 15 that looks identical to real-world goal-line tech," the outlet said.

CVG quoted Channon as saying, "That really does impact the game. Obviously you don't see it all the time, but when you do get a really close call whether the ball was over the line or not it does change the feeling of the game quite dramatically. We've talked about emotion a number of times this year and this is one of those points."

Peter Moore, the COO of EA, said that the new features and attention-to-detail brings the game "to new levels of authenticity and realism," thereby allowing gamers "to immerse themselves in the drama and emotion of the league," VG 24/7 reported.

"FIFA 15" drops on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, PS Vita and PC September 25 in the US. According to VG 24/7, Xbox game consoles get Ultimate Team Legends exclusive content.
