WATCH: FIFA 15 to Give Players More Real-Life Emotion

FIFA 15 trailer highlights a more realistic gaming experience

FIFA 15, the next version of Electronic Arts’ popular soccer video game, will feature players who show more emotions and goalposts that shake when struck, among other lifelike visual upgrades.

EA previewed the game’s upgrades on Monday at E3. The trailer—”feel the game,” it says—demonstrates the improved gameplay experience, with cleats leaving imprints on the grass and players shoving and tugging shirts as they fight for the ball. Notably, FIFA 15 will introduce a focus on player emotion, with players having “memories” allowing them to cheer when scoring a goal, or fall to the pitch when missing.

Check out the official E3 gameplay trailer above. No release date is set yet for the game.

WATCH: Fable Legends Multiplayer Beta Coming to Xbox One This Fall

Fable is one of the most well-received RPGs for Microsoft’s Xbox consoles— and the story’s continuing with a pretty significant departure. The upcoming Fable Legends will be centered around a multiplayer mode, with up to four players taking control of heroes and one player choosing to show up as a villain.

The villain mode actually sounds pretty cool: Whoever picks the bad-guy role will have a top-down view of the game and a mission to stop the heroes from completing their missions.

The Fable Legends multiplayer beta opens this fall. Check out the footage from the upcoming game above.
