Eden Hazard Is The UK Cover Star For FIFA 15
EA have revealed that Chelsea and Belgian international Eden Hazard is the new face of the FIFA 15 UK cover. The BPL wonder-kid will also feature on the covers of the France, Netherlands and Belgium titles as well alongside Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona.
In a very impressive 2013/14 campaign, Hazard bagged himself 14 goals and 7 assists in as little as 35 appearances for Chelsea. He was voted the PFA Young Player of the Year and he also go into the official PFA Team of the Year too.
Although the up and coming youngster did not enjoy a 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil this past year with his national side, he did do well in another area other than club football. Fans of the series scored well over 52 million goals with the winger on FIFA 14 and he’s been traded in the auction rooms over 780K times. His standard FUT card was sold at the highest price of near 2.5M gold coins and he got into the BPL TOTS too.
As Electronic Arts prepare to make their football title even more realistic and complete with player authenticity, Eden Hazard was one of the 200 new players to have his face captured with EA’s clever face capturing technology. With the Barclays Premier League being the most played and basically the best league in the world, more gamers want to see the top league concentrated on and that’s what EA have done.
All 20 of the Premier league stadiums will be officially licensed in FIFA 15, and this promises to be the most complete footie game of all-time.
It’s not really a surprise to see Hazard unveiled as the new cover star in so many different country’s, as EA have renewed their official partnering with Chelsea football club for the new season. Brand new social and digital content will be available for Blues fans throughout the year with this agreement and Chelsea fans can look out for these freebies by either following EA Sports or CFC on Twitter or other social media platforms.
