Every year is the same megalomanic announcment from EA : "pure shoot , revolutionary goalkeepers ,etc." , but in the end all is just smoke.
The ideea is that you just can't make huge leaps from one year to the next , it's a continuous process of evolution step by step.
People at EA should take up politics , because there is the domain for grand and in the end false promisses.
It would be better if they would just say "we'll try to improve some graphics , movement , etc., and wait for consumer opinion for next updates or future serries" , I would feel more apreciated and give them my money with no regret , because they are realistic , but that is not the case noe.
Anyway , despite the new engine , I believe we shal see a slighhtly improved game in graphics for sure , and maybe some minor things in gameplay , but that's it. And off course , the ever present blunders , wich you can be sure , there will be.
About modding , probably it won't be such a dramatic change in file structure , but this is not the real concern , there are a few talented people here anf it will be ok from this point.
So , time to be patient and wait...
finally, managers. training rooms are probably just gonna be redundant pre-match cut-scenes i believe (forgive me for being sceptical xD)
Although i think it will be an pre-game thing dont you think it will be used for cm? I mean im pretty sure that trailer was mainly a trailer for career mode. If you look at it there was the chelsea training facility which may be a hint at a more nba style story mode. Then there was harry kane wearing some funky tech whilst talking which makes me think that could be for interviews (and maybe awards?). Then there was the man utd changing room with the shirts of martial (obvs) and memphis; two young and promising players which again hints at the youthful and promising side of the supposed "story mode". Then Mourinho which means a) YESS MANAGERS! b) they could affect much more than just if you play or not. we see hazard wearing the same thing as harry kane with marker spots on his face which makes me think even more that its animations for a general interview sequence. And finally reus clinches his fist in the changing room to show hope (cheesy).
i think fifa 16 will be a much more graphic intense game like nba is. Also reus has his tattoo (yay)
