EA have teased a few details regarding FIFA 17, alongside a short teaser trailer. We will learn a lot more come Sunday in the EA Play show prior to E3, but a few changes have been made that really shake up the system.
For a start, FIFA 17 will drop the Ignite engine which EA have been using for a few years. Instead, this year’s game will be going down the same route as other EA titles by utilizing DICE’s Frostbite engine, best known for its use in Battlefield, Star Wars Battlefront, Dragon Age Inquisition and Need for Speed.
“Frostbite unlocks a whole new world of possibilities for the FIFA franchise and its fans,” said executive producer David Rutter. “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.”
FIFA 17 launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC in North America on September 27th and globally on September 29th. EA Access and Origin Access members will get to play the game early, as is the norm for any EA new releases.
