The world’s biggest sports game franchise is set to recreate the beautiful game once more when FIFA 15 releases this week.

Coming to PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, EA’s annual football simulation is once again set to redefine the standard for soccer in games.

Last year’s FIFA 14 was the first in the series to release on the more powerful PS4 and Xbox One consoles, bringing with it a delicious graphical upgrade.

This time around, the game is set to develop another layer of realism. All 20 Premier League stadiums have been recreated in-game for the first time.

On the pitch, a new range of context-based emotions allow players to react to match events more realistically. All 22 players are connected, and will react to decisions made by one another at all times, which its developers say will make teams seem more human and more like a set of people linking together instead of individuals.

Goalkeepers have also been improved, and facial recreations look better than ever.

FIFA 15, priced £54.99 to £64.99, is out on Friday.
