FIFA 17: New gameplay trailer, images and more revealed at EA Play
FIFA 17 has finally been revealed and with it masses of changes to the game which we hope will translate to a far superior experience when game hits shops later this year.
We’d already learned that the game was transitioning to the Frostbite engine used by so many of EA’s games, but finally we can see the authentic true-to-life action thanks to a new gameplay trailer and several screenshots.
There’s also been plenty of gameplay advances, including everything from new run types, more skill moves, new tackles and also 3x the amount of animations previously available in FIFA 16 – to name but a few of the new features.
However the biggest overhaul will be felt in the games set pieces, which now includes a new system for taking corners which removes the hit and hope feel of the last game.
In addition, Penalties have been overhauled, allowing you to run at the ball from different angles and adjust the speed at which you run in.
But if that wasn’t enough you can also move along the touchline when taking a throw in and even fake a throw to fool your opponent.
However, the biggest change to the game undoubtedly comes from the new career mode called ‘The Journey’.
Within this new addition to FIFA 17, you’ll play as Alex Hunter, an up and coming new star in the Premier League who comes from a long line of footballers.
The immersive experience, takes players for the first time to the back of stadia and into the dressing rooms, tunnels and even Alex Hunters childhood home.
Essentially the game lets you pick a club from Prem and start your career. You’ll be given objectives in the match and you can see your rating during your match to show how well you’re playing.
