EA Sports revamps Career Mode for FIFA 15, sends out Beta invites

Looks like EA has finally heard fans and will be focusing more on Career Mode for FIFA 15 by revamping it. Career Mode in previous games has been pretty much the same with minor changes, fans have been demanding certain features like extra team sheets, a better transfer market, etc and in FIFA 15 we’re finally getting something new.

EA is also inviting players to participate in a Closed Beta for FIFA 15 Career Mode although a set criteria for who is invited is not revealed yet. So if you’re not invited chances are you won’t be invited later on. The Closed Beta starts on the 21st on August on various platforms.

In the above invite emailed to one lucky player, EA has outlined some of the major improvements coming to Career Mode. Team Management is improved and will now allow players to choose 6 different team sheets, this saves times as we’ll no longer have to change teams player by player and can simply choose another team sheet. Player Growth is now dubbed to be more “realistic”. Scout functionality is improved and they will now try to find players that suit your team and improve it.

What would you like EA to introduce in the FIFA 15 Career Mode? Let us know in the comments.

  • JoeyDaNuts

    And commentary is terrible.. My portugal debut i score 2 goals and 1 assist. Next game the commentators say he hasnt been performing well recently has he… Lol
    And they dont talk much about ur player and when they do it bs incorrect info n boring.. No hype at all..

  • JoeyDaNuts

    Its fucking shit!! Why is news feed not on main page? Why when u get subbed n sim the rest of the game it doesnt tell u the final score u have to go to fixtures to find out? Wtf why did i get called to the national team (portugal) after only playing about 10 games n for exeter city and scoring about 2 goals? Wtffff lol
    They should make a bigger deal about the ballon d’or and other trophies u can win in a players career. There should be more media hype and from the fans. More interaction with the fans and what impact ur making on them.

    And u shouldnt pick who u want to play for.. Should have some training sessions mode and a friendly game with other youngsters from ur acadamy and u get offers from clubs who are impressed by ur performance.. The better u do the higher profile teams will offer u contracts.. I could go on for ever on how to improve this game.. Fifa hola at me

    I have some suggestions:

    1) Let the manager or player be sought after. If you take a lowly team and get them into the euro league, you should be sought after. If you’re a striker and become top 5 striker in La Liga, you should be sought after.

    2) We should be able to approach teams we want to join.

    3) There needs to be a memory in the commentary. If you won everything in one season with the Spurs, commentators the next season should refer to you as the best team in the world.

    4) Teams should sign big names if they get the money to do so. Leading Sevilla to win the double and the CL as a player striker did nothing to the team the following season.

    5) Player mode should not be pre-programmed based on rating, but performance. If I’m the highest scorer in a tournament, I should be rewarded with more games, not just a random picking because of my overall rating.

    6) If I get loaned as a player, the team that I’m playing on should have the ability to extend the loan or buy me if I perform well.

    7) If you’re managing a team well, players should approach you to join the team.

    8) In player mode, you should be able to request to not play a game or be on the sub list in order to rest for a bigger game.

    9) In player mode, your manager should put you in the sub list instead of skipping you for a game with the ability to watch the game until you get put in.

    Can fifa add hearts into rest of the world? They have been in every fifa since 95 🙁 Rangers are in it aswell and are in same league. Also like some others I don’t feel career mode has changed to be honest. I hate how you don’t want to sign a player that’s 29-30 as he starts declining yet in real life you will still get the best out if him for a few seasons after. There stats shouldn’t really start declining until after 32 and even then it shouldn’t be all stats that decline. It’s a joke? So you telling me a 36 year old Xavi suddenly looses his passing ability and first touch and goes into the 70s like fifa 14 did? No!!!! Shambles! Shouldn’t be like that. The transfer market has become a bit of a joke now and more effort is required to find talent unless you know the player you want. Having the overall removed from non world class players should have been put back in this fifa.

    I would like Fifa to add some historical stats to career mode… like a chart showing how many times a team has been champion in the league, or champions league.. or top players from the past seasons, or record goals in CL, or league… and the ability to break those records and stats..

    • Placebo

      Yeah I’d love that as well, or at the very least not reset the stats for players, so if say Suarez scores 20 in his first season then 29 in his next they talk about how he’s approaching 50 goals for Barca etc etc

    Revamp? Seriously? Where? There is next to nothing being done on CM, Team Management and CPU AI is in all game modes so it’s certainly not a CM feature, players no longer retiring so early from 28-31 should have been fixed in Fifa14 in two weeks maximum, it’s a single line of text to change in an ini file:

    playerretirement.ini

    MIN_RETIREMENT_AGE = 34
    MAX_RETIREMENT_AGE = 41

    Boom, done, 5 seconds work.

    Transfer market tweaks are also simply ini file tweaks, and scouts suggesting who to sign is a complete waste of time, to claim they’ve “revamped” CM is embarrassing and insulting to those of us who love CM and only ever play CM.

  • Mike

    Yeah I haven’t seen shit on PLAYER career mode, only manager mode. Sounds like same old shit…….

  • mfmaxpower

    What a load of bullshit. Revamp my ass. They’ve barely done a thing. Team management is not a CM feature – it’s a FIfA-wide feature. They’ve barely done anything to CM itself and haven’t added a single new worthwhile feature.
