Euro 2016 DLC:
The Euro 2016 is automatically downloaded with Data Pack 3. Other than the above the DLC will bring the official Euro 2016 tournament mode. Here you will be able to select one of the competing teams from Euro 2016 and try and make your own journey to the trophy. You can play this mode with friends also as you have the option to select multiple user players.
Secondly you will be able to play exhibition matches using the Euro 2016 theme, this will be similar to the current Champions League theme. The final Euro 2016 specific additions are the official ball and the introduction of a new stadium, the host of the final itself the Stade de France.
