If you’re looking to enjoy sporting glory without having to leave the comfort of the sofa, you could do a lot worse than to try out one of these fantastic new sporting games.
This massively popular sporting franchise looks to reassert its dominance over the football gaming genre when FIFA 16 is released in September 2015. With its makers EA Sports promising to make it ‘the most authentic soccer game out there’, it looks to improve on its phenomenal multiplayer mode and gameplay mechanics with some surprising new features.
Key amongst these will be the recent announcement that female players will be introduced to the game. Although such a move may seem somewhat late, it signals a move by the developers to harness a massive untapped market. By researching body scaling, EA Sports now feel confident in the graphical depictions of the female players to unleash this socially significant update.
Although the new technology of next gen consoles has been quick to offer open-universe games, there has been a significant absence in terms of simple table games for these devices.
