All The New FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Features Detailed
The biggest and most popular game mode will be making a swift return to our consoles and personal computers come what September, so now’s a good time to give our readers the lowdown on what’s new in regards to features in FIFA 15 Ultimate Team.
With just over 12 million users and that figure expected to rise when the new title arrives this fall, we take a look at the new additions to FUT 15 this year.
Brand New Base stat Attribute Added
This year will see the introduction of a brand new base stat attribute entitled PHY which is a shortened version of Physical. It’s to become the sixth component on a player in the FUT 15 world and it’s designed to show users which players have strength, decent jumping and a great engine in the way of stamina.
With this new stat, gamers can now carefully think about who they buy in the transfer market that possesses this trait and it will tell them if they can last a full 90 minutes on the pitch and if they have the physical capabilities to out-muscle opponents in challenges for the ball.
In past games gone by, the FUT community had to rely somewhat on defence and heading to estimate if a player had the physical side the their game. Now it’ll be even easier to spot which players have this in their locker and make Ultimate Team a whole different ball-game when FIFA 15 arrives this Autumn.
FUT 15 Friendly Seasons
The new friendly seasons game mode will allow gamers to challenge their friends in a 1 v 1 type version of the online seasons concept. This will make rubbing salt in the wounds of your best friends and grabbing all of the bragging rights so much more fun.
New Concept Squads Feature
A new squad planning tool has been created by EA this year that’s called the Concept Squads, and it allows users to shuffle around and look for their best team by testing players out in various different positions that they don’t own yet and see if the team chemistry sticks.
This is a great touch by the developers and a really clever feature to include in this years title as it will help a lot of newbies to Ultimate Team find their perfect starting eleven. You can use this powerful tool to find new signings with or to get rid of a poor player in your club and look for a replacement that you can afford with coins.
FUT 15 Loan Signings
As reported back in May when the pre-order bonuses were announced, you’ll now be able to try and test out any players before going all-in and purchasing them from the auction rooms thanks to the new loan market feature. You can now sign players from the transfer market for a limited amount of games just to get a feel for them and see if they’d fit into your team and do well for you.
If the player is not for you, then you don’t have to sign him on a full length contract for loads of FUT coins. This would be a good tactic to use so pay full attention. When in a tournament final, we recommend that you loan someone mind-blowing like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi or Neymar and win the tournament to get more coins then discard the player’s loan period. It’s a good tactic worth thinking about leading into the first couple of weeks into the game’s release.
New Legends Added For Xbox Users
As we reported yesterday, there will be some new Legends for FIFA 15 Ultimate Team that include the likes of Jay-Jay Okocha, Alan Shearer, Michael and Brian Laudrup and many more including the 41 carried over from 14. The Legends more will however still be an Xbox One and Xbox 360 exclusive. So PlayStation users will not have any access to this feature unfortunately.
