All new slide, standing, and fake tackles make going in for the ball responsive, rewarding, and fun! Control in Midfield Games are won and lost in the midfield - in FIFA 16, the midfield matters. Stay in possession with patient build-up play or ping clinical passes through space to start an attack. Interception Intelligence Players anticipate passes and move to shut down options and close passing channels. Smarter teammates will look for space and allow more opportunities to build play through the midfield. Passing with Purpose A revolution in passing.

Using a new mechanic, ping driven ground passes to find teammates in tight spaces to open up your attacking options. Moments of Magic Create more WOW moments. In FIFA 16 players will have that cutting edge every team needs to create moments of magic and unlock defenses. No Touch Dribbling The best touch can be the one you don't take. Free yourself from the ball to buy time, create separation, feint, and blow by your defender just as Messi does when he is at his best - its near limitless creativity on the ball. Dynamic Crossing Send that cross in! Authentic crosses let you find teammates with greater accuracy. Attacking players run onto and attack the ball with intent, making defenses scramble as crosses are played behind the back line with vicious intent.
