EA Reveals FIFA ’17 and Release Date at E3

Electronic Arts has announced the FIFA ’17 release date. The latest installment in the soccer (or football if you are across the big pond) franchise will use the Frostbite game engine, bringing with it more realism and more emotion than ever before. The new game will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on September 27 in North America and September 29 in other parts of the world.  Along with the announcement came a trailer showing off the Frostbite engine’s power.


Executive producer, David Rutter, had the following to say:

Frostbite unlocks a whole new world of possibilities for the FIFA franchise and its fans. We have never been as excited as we are today about the future of football and the experiences we are going to deliver in FIFA 17. Frostbite delivers authentic, true-to-life action, takes players to new football worlds, and introduces fans to characters full of depth and emotion.”

The new game also gets contributions from real football players such as James Rodriguez, Anthony Martial, Eden Hazard, and Marco Reus.  EA’s E3 conference also talked about the game’s story campaign as well as the addition of team managers. 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.
