FIFA 17: Free Kicks, Frostbite And A Single Player Journey

Kickoff coming September

As we have come to expect EA have shown us more details on FIFA 17. Prior to the trailer, everyone assumed that it will be just another re-skin of the last 3 games. However, EA has moved from the Ignite Engine, that has been used since FIFA 14, over to the Frostbite 3 engine which powers games such as the stunning Star Wars Battlefront, Need for Speed, Mirror’s Edge, and Dragon Age. Even though this engine was predominately used for destructive environments, Frostbite is being used in FIFA 17 to simulate adverse changing weather effects that have an impact on the ball and pitch, moving corner flags, and improvements to crowd animations.

Even though Frostbite is predominately used for destructive environments, FIFA 17 is utilising the game engine to simulate adverse changing weather effects that have an impact on the ball and pitch, moving corner flags, and to add even more detailed crowd animations.

Due to this change from the Ignite Engine, motion capture has been done all over again using a new body suit, facial scans have been redone using new technology that will give us even more life-like players on-screen, and for the first time in FIFA, we will get animated managers on the sidelines.

A brand new system the Active Intelligence system introduces constant spatial analysis, increases activity off the ball, and changes the way players move, read, and react.

Introducing The Journey, The Journey is a new mode in FIFA 17. Make your mark on and off the pitch as the Premier League’s next rising star, Alex Hunter. Play at any Premier League club, for authentic managers, and alongside some of the best players on the planet.

Fifa fans have been waiting for a single players experience  for years, so even with the amateur dramatics on stage from the “Real Alex Hunter” in game character, the branching story lines, choice of any Premiership club certainly looks appealing.
