According to social media, the anticipation for EA Sports’ FIFA 16 has been nothing but lackluster. Amidst the FIFA corruption scandal, FUT Price Range Update and inclusion of women international teams, there are numerous issues that could potentially hinder the sales of FIFA 16. In addition, EA’s recent E3 FIFA 16 release was much to be desired. The PR department for EA Sports are working over time to include FUT giveaways like never before to appease frustrated fans.
The developer recently announced that starting on July 1 all fans of the football simulation title will be able to vote in the new FUTTIES awards. They are designed to celebrate the best players included in the Ultimate Team mode for the title. To illustrate an example, EA Sports have given every FUT player a free Daniel Sturridge on a 5 game loan, due to the Liverpool man scoring the most goals in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team.
There’s no doubt that EA are troubled and are looking to announce more new features over the course of the summer. These giveaways are also a tell-tale sign that FIFA 15 is more or less over with. Anticipation is growing for FIFA 16, but EA has yet to release a convincing and exciting feature.
