Hands-on with Fifa 15: Ultimate Team, EA's latest mobile football sim

While I've seen some surprising things at this year's Gamescom, there are a few constants which provide comfort amidst the madness.

The Fifa franchise is one of these constants, the latest iteration of which takes the form of Fifa 15: Ultimate Team, and is due to arrive on iOS in the very near future.

Taking onboard the negative feedback Fifa 14 received regarding its gesture controls,  the team has opted to return to a button-based control scheme this year. There's now a dedicated throughball button, and the ability to active close ball control by double-tapping the floating joystick.

The other big change is the franchise's new focus on Ultimate Team mode, which proved the most popular mode with fans of Fifa 14. There's also a quasi manager mode called Quick Simulation, and a more tradition free-to-play model.
