FIFA 16 introduces FUT Draft for FIFA Ultimate Team

Electronic Arts has confirmed a new feature that will be available to play in FIFA this year’s FIFA 16.

FIFA Ultimate Team introduces FUT Draft in which players will be able to compete online and in single player mode in a knockout-style string of four games. The more games they win, the more rewards they will get.

EA explains more:

“Once fans enter a Draft using virtual coins, FIFA Points, or a Draft Token, they will choose from one of five formations, then a captain, and then go on to fill out the rest of their 23-man squad by selecting a player from a choice of five in each position. Fans will be tested as they choose between picking the best players and creating a team with the right chemistry before they enter their games."

FIFA Ultimate Team will also benefit from new broadcast-style presentation and dynamic commentary with reactions from the pundits to the stats and history of your team.
