On Tuesday, EA Sports released the latest installment of the FIFA video game series, with ‘FIFA 16’ being released for PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

Toronto FC’s Sebastian Giovinco is joined by David Villa, Giovanni dos Santos, and Kaka, on the downloadable cover. Interesting to note that none of the four players who made the cut were plying their trade in the league last season, and none of them are American or Canadian.
Giovinco, Villa, Kaka, and dos Santos, are all high profile international stars who have unquestionably helped grow the league’s profile this season. Not only have they been able to garner MLS international attention, but they have clearly made an impact with even the league’s most hardcore fans.
Both Giovinco and Villa are in the top three for goals scored this season, but Kaka and dos Santos have also looked impressive in their first year in the league.
Along with the downloadable cover with the four aforementioned stars, MLS fans can also download custom team covers. All 20 MLS teams have their very own cover that fans can download and enjoy.
FIFA 16 is now available for purchase now across the globe, with interested parties able to purchase it in stores or online at EA Sports’ official website.
