New FIFA 16 Dev Diary Looks at Messi’s No Touch Dribbling Being Added to the Game

Electronic Arts is always looking for ways to refine the way players control the ball in their FIFA 16, and the gamers look for improvements in every new iteration of the game. In a new Dev Diary the team behind the game look to Lionel Messi for some inspiration.

When Messi dribbles the ball, part of his control style is to fake movement, often not even touching the ball at all. Using motion capture and working with the Barcelona FC star this skill with the ball has been motion captured and implemented into the play style of the player in the game.

This along with other additions to the gameplay will make the game play even better for the fans, and hopefully improve the game as a whole.  Mess with the formula too much though and I’m sure we’ll be seeing gamers give some swift feedback.

We’ll be sure to see more of the new additions to the game in future development diaries in the near future.

FIFA 16 will be the first time that the game has featured women players alongside the male.  This doesn’t mean that they will be able to play against each other though, and only the international teams are included.

This has proved a controversial addition to the game, although in truth it is a mainly positive move especially at the time of the Women’s World Cup.

FIFA 16 will be coming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 4 and PC September 24.
