Sports video games get a lot of flak for making incredibly small improvements each year, updating the rosters and reselling virtually the same product for $60 a season. FIFA has always been one of the best franchises in terms of actually evolving the game, and September’s FIFA 15 is shaping up to be another colossal time sink for soccer fans. EA Sports announced Wednesday that finally, 20 years after club teams were first introduced in FIFA 95, FIFA 15 will include all 20 Premier League Stadiums.

It sounds like a little thing, but playing a game in an authentic stadium makes a dramatic difference in terms of immersion. There’s nothing worse than picking a mid-level Premier League side and playing an entire season at “Town Park” or  “Forest Park Stadium,” or having to manually rename each and every ground to try and lend a small shred of authenticity to career mode. Now every ground, from QPR’s Loftus Road to Burnley’s Turf Moor, will be included FIFA 15.

And the stadiums look gorgeous.
