FIFA-loving Clarets fans will now be able to walk out on the hallowed Turf Moor pitch when FIFA 15 is released next month.
The game hits shelves on September 26th and for the first time in the game’s history, Turf Moor will join the likes of Old Trafford and the Camp Nou as an official stadium.
The announcement follows news that EA SPORTS has extended their existing agreement until the end of the 2018/19 season, which now incorporates the sponsorship of the league’s Goal Decision System.
The new agreement will showcase the Barclays Premier League as the most authentic league in EA SPORTS FIFA 15, with an unprecedented level of detail in the players and all 20 stadiums, including Turf Moor, as well as the integration of broadcast quality graphics, audio and commentary that ensures FIFA 15 fans will feel the emotion and intensity of the most popular football league in the world.
The deal has also given EA SPORTS access to all 20 Barclays Premier League clubs to enable the FIFA 15 team to capture 3D head scans of over 200 players, build realistic stadiums for all 20 League clubs, and capture the emotion of the crowd by recording live match atmosphere during the 2013/14 season.
