The one constant on FIFA 15’s cover throughout the world, no matter where you are, will be Lionel Messi. But alongside him on the cover will be another football star, one who is more relevant locally than Messi. For example, the US gets Clint Dempsey featured on their cover; in European territories, that is, in UK, Ireland, France, Netherlands, and Belgium, Eden Hazard, the football superstar from EPL club Chelsea, will co-star alongside Messi.
Commenting on the partnership, Dan Holman, Head of UK Product Marketing EA SPORTS said: “We’re delighted to have Eden on the cover of FIFA 15 and to be working with him and Chelsea in showcasing the Barclays Premier League to the amazing level of detail that the game will deliver this year. Eden’s quick, direct and skilful approach is a joy to watch on the pitch, and a dream come true for FIFA Ultimate Team fans, and it shows why he is often one of the first names in their concept squads.”
On seeing the FIFA 15 pack, Eden said: “I have played FIFA all of my life and it’s a huge honour to be asked to be on the cover of FIFA 15. Now I have played the game I can say it’s the most realistic football game I have seen, so I cannot wait to challenge my friends and team-mates with FIFA 15 and show off the new moves.”
FIFA 15 is launching this September on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, and PlayStation Vita.
