Fifa 17 Gamescom Gameplay Trailer

Football is Back - And this time it's Frostbite!

Gamescom wouldn’t quite be Gamescom without a dutiful appearance from EA’s FIFA franchise making an experience- and this year has been no different. FIFA 17’s Frostbite engine was on full display in the new gameplay trailer which was released yesterday for the event in Germany, demonstrating some the new and exciting features which will be making an appearance come the Autumn.

With animations and player likenesses looking as slick as ever, EA look like they have taken the challenge of Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer to it’s crown of ‘King of Football’ seriously.

Although always lookng to innovate and move forward, EA’s choice of Blur’s Song 2 for the gameplay trailer is a curious one. Regular followers of the franchise will recognise the song harping back to one of the most iconic editions of the FIFA series in FIFA 98.

Could this mean anything in particular? Or did EA just hit shuffle on Spotify.
