EA Sports has released the first trailer for FIFA 17, giving fans a glimpse of this 2017 iteration of the annual soccer video game franchise. While much of the trailer appears to be live action shots of players, the most exciting announcement was the inclusion of EA’s Frostbite gaming engine. The engine is used in many of EA’s other titles and appears to be another step forward in making the game be as realistic as possible in both gameplay and visuals.
EA has taken big steps forward in recent years with dribbling mechanics, passing, ball movement and the inclusion of scans of player’s faces. But it appears with this year’s edition the plan is to get the most out of the current generation of consoles and make the game look and feel like the real thing. For example, the face scan of Chelsea’s Eden Hazard looks astoundingly realistic, setting up big expectations when the game is released on September 27
According to EA more details about the game will be streamed to during the developer’s "EA Play" event this Sunday, June 12
