EA Sports at E3 2015: Trailers & Release Dates for New Sports Games



Whether you enjoy controlling Lionel Messi on a dazzling run through five defenders or controlling Marshawn Lynch on a punishing run over five defenders, there was something for you to get excited about during Monday’s EA Sports press conference at 2015 E3.

New trailers and release dates were announced for FIFA 16, Madden 16, NBA Live 16 and NHL 16 at the annual gaming conference. Enjoy.


Release Date: September 22, 2015 (US)

With the help of legendary footballer Pelé, FIFA focuses on the beauty of the sport in its newest trailer.

The most popular new feature in this year’s game, of course, is the inclusion of 12 international women’s teams. USA’s Alex Morgan and Canada’s Christine Sinclair both make appearances in the trailer.

Madden 16

Release Date: August 25, 2015

Odell Beckham Jr., who beat out Rob Gronkowski to appear on the cover of this year’s game, took the NFL world by storm last season with his ludicrous one-handed catches. So, it’s no surprise that he’s the star of the newest trailer, and he’s making a spectacular grab.

It also makes sense as many of the game’s new gameplay features focus on passing and catching mechanics. Take a look at all the new improvements here.

NBA Live 16

Release Date: September 29, 2015

2K Games has dominated the basketball video game world for a long time now, but EA Sports is making some strides to level the playing field.

This year’s installment will feature live motion physics, which have been in development for a couple of years and will supposedly do away with the scripted animations. You will also be able to scan your face into the game using your smartphone.

NHL 16

Release Date: September, 2015

Fans who were disappointed with the lack of game modes in NHL 15 will be happy to know that all of the modes from previous installments, including Be a Pro career mode, will return in this year’s game.

In terms of gameplay, the makers of NHL 16 are focusing on making smoother transitions with puck pickups and player movement. Now, players will be able to accelerate or turn when receiving a pass, as opposed to slowing down like in previous editions of the game.
