German Commentator Wolff-Christoph Foot to Debut in FIFA 16

By   /   Jul 3, 2015

Playing games like FIFA 16, the most important aspect of course is to get the gameplay right, but the atmosphere of the game is also important. One of the things that helps to create the feeling of immersion for the fans is the commentary included in the game, and this is often done by using commentators that are recognisable from the televised games.

For German fans one of the commentators is Wolff-Christoph Foot, who will be part of FIFA 16. This will be the first time that he has been part of the game. Fans usually hear his commentary for Sky Germany, along with co-commentator Frank Buschmann.

In an announcement today, it was reported that Wolff-Christoph had completed his commentary for the game. This was based on a video that he posted on his Facebook giving a behind the scenes glance at how the commentary is added to the game.

The commentators for the game have to record 220,000 words, which includes more than 6,000 player names. With 150 hours of vocal work put into the game it is then up to the developers to make sure that the correct lines are output at the right moments in gameplay.

Any fans of the FIFA games as well as PES will know in previous years, this commentary has been repetitive at times, so this is something that is often a focus for improvement. Whether FIFA 16 will manage this will have to be seen on its September 17 release.

FIFA 16 is coming to Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. This will also be the first time female players have been included in the game to celebrate this year’s World Cup in Canada.

Do you enjoy the commentary in the FIFA games? Let us know your thoughts below.
