To many it doesn’t come as a surprise as Argentinian goal-scorer Lionel Messi has been named the FIFA 15 global cover star. Though he was on the loosing team in the World Cup final, he is considered by many the best player in the world at the moment. He was named Man of the Match four times and scored that many times during his nation’s run to the finals.
Messi has had many chances to feature on the cover of FIFA games. After all, the Barcelona striker was featured on the global cover of past games like FIFA Street (2012), FIFA 13 (2012), and FIFA 14 (2013). This is his fourth consecutive appearance as FIFA’s global cover athlete. FIFA 15 will also have regional cover stars, though these have not been announced yet.
FIFA 15 launches September 23 in North America, September 25 in Europe, and September 26 in the UK. If you preorder the game, you’ll be instantly upgraded to the Ultimate Edition, which includes various FIFA Ultimate Team digital bonuses.
