FIFA 15 global box art features Lionel Messi

Posted on July 15, 2014 AT 02:09am

EA has officially confirmed that Barcelona’s Lionel Messi will be the global cover star for FIFA 15 when it launches this September.

This will mark the four-time FIFA Ballon d’Or winner’s fourth appearance on the cover of a FIFA game, with the player having previously appeared on the covers of FIFA 13, FIFA 14, and FIFA Street.

“This past season, the 27 year old had 28 league goals for FC Barcelona and captained Argentina to the FIFA World Cup final,” the publisher said. “During the World Cup Messi won four Man of the Match awards, scored four times and received the Golden Ball award for best player of the tournament.”

“As with previous FIFA releases, we will have a number of regional covers featuring local talent with Messi,” EA added. “Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we reveal those.”

FIFA 15 is set to launch September 23 in North America and September 25 in Europe (September 26 for the U.K.) on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
