Good news for Xbox One and Windows 10 gamers and subscribers to EA Access and Origin Access: Electronic Arts has decided to add FIFA 16 to the Vault, a move that should excite football players around the world. With the FIFA games longed deemed the best video game for the sport of football, EA’s latest edition is no exception. The new game brings much of what players have come to enjoy from previous title with improvements and new gameplay features to push the experience further.

“FIFA 16 will be coming to The Vault for EA Access on Xbox One and Origin Access members on PC beginning April 19,” reads the announcement from EA. “FIFA 16 innovates across the entire pitch to deliver a balanced, authentic, and exciting football experience that lets you play your way. You’ll have Confidence in Defending, take Control in Midfield, and produce more Moments of Magic than ever before.”

The most notable improvement is the ability to allow a player to slide tackle and get up soon after to keep pressuring the attacker. There have also been improvements to defense, midfield, and attacking gameplay. Most importantly are the improvements to the goalkeeper: now, he’s much better than in previous games so players should now have more confidence in the final backline.

What about the option to use female football teams? It’s in this edition as well and is probably the biggest new feature in FIFA 16, one that has not been talked about much since the game was released back in 2015. We also haven’t seen many players using female teams on YouTube, but seeing as football is a sport with a strong male following, this is not surprising at all.

EA Access is only available on the Xbox One and Origin Access is only available on Windows PC. The service costs $6.99 per month, or $29.99 per year, to play any game in the Vault. At the moment, there are 15 games in the Vault.
