Update – The North American cover has been revealed to include the addition of US Men’s National Team Captain Clint Dempsey. Dempsey joins Messi wearing his Seattle Sounders kit for the Xbox versions and the USMNT kit for the PlayStation versions.


If you’re like me, you’re still on a high from the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil coming to an end. Great games, lots of drama, a little swim practice, and some snacking were all involved in this years games. What BETTER way to celebrate all the fun of the FIFA World Cup than making it last all year long?


FIFA 15 will hit store shelves in September and the cover has finally been revealed! It should come as no surprise that Lionel Messi is appearing once again as the cover star. This icon for the Argentina and Barcelona teams has appeared four times on FIFA covers, and within that time, he has set a new record for the most goals in a year (91) and he’s also the only player to have received the FIFA Ballon d’Or not once but four times!

People may wonder why Messi again, but with his skills, its a better question to ask, “why not?” During this past season, Messi had 28 league goals for FC Barcelona and he lead Argentina into the World Cup final. During the World Cup alone, Messi scored 4 of the crucial goals to help his team advance, won four Man of the Match awards and took home the Golden Ball award for the best player of the tournament.

While Messi may be the main cover star, he will not be alone on it. As always with FIFA titles, there will be a number of other covers where Messi will be complimented with additional local talent for other regions, so stay tuned to EA SPORTS during the coming weeks leading up to release, to see the full cover reveals and to download FIFA 15 wallpapers for facebook, twitter, mobile devices and more!

My name is Felicia but many just call me Lixx or Scilixx. I’ve been a gamer since I could sit up and play Asteroids on Atari. I became hooked immediately and have had a longterm love affair with video games. Of course, Atari wasn’t enough for me. I branched out into every generation after that. I still own them all, over 20 different working consoles. To quote Gollum, they are “my precious.” But I will admit, lately I have become a very healthy member of the PC Master Race. Do not despair, I’m not really much of a fan-girl to anything in particular. I like anything that gives me enjoyment. Whether its on a PC, console, handheld or even phone, I don’t care. I will play it. Currently some of my favorite games include Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate & Fire Emblem (3DS), Soul Sacrifice & Toukiden (PS Vita), Diablo 3 & Borderlands 2 (PC). And yes, I generally will play multiple games throughout the day. If I go without gaming for a day, stay out of my way, I will not be in a very jolly mood. Outside of gaming, I enjoy a good fantasy novel, violent tv shows (Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire), and folding origami. :3

Have your say!
