Highly improved graphics: With the new game engine, EA Sports confirmed that it will take FIFA series to who new level with improved graphics all around from players, stadiums crowds and almost real cut-scenes and replays.
Fluid animations: Although FIFA has improved in so many ways over the last few installments, it was evident with the release of FIFA 16 that ignite engine has reached its full potential.
