I never thought I would hear these words together but here we are. EA is bringing change to FIFA this year, and at the EA Play event today in LA, we got our first look at the changes being brought.
First off, the engine is changing. We’re seeing the Frostbyte engine pop up everywhere, and this marks the first time it’s being used for FIFA.
The next big thing is Premier League will have managers in-game, if you were watching, Jose Mourinho came out onto the stage to show this very thing. You will see them react to what’s happening on the pitch, and they look great!
A new BIG thing is the new mode called The Journey, which acts like a story mode in FIFA 17. There’s even the Mass Effect story wheel to utilize! Check out more details here.
For the first time ever in FIFA, live your story on and off the pitch as the Premier League’s next rising star, Alex Hunter. Play on any club in the Premier league, for authentic managers and alongside some of the best players on the planet. Experience brand new worlds in FIFA 17, all while navigating your way through the emotional highs and lows of The Journey.
In The Journey, Alex Hunter’s Premier League career is impacted by your performance on the pitch, and the decisions you make off of it. Make critical decisions throughout the game that will change what happens next and how other characters react to you. Will you put your team first before your own success? The choice is yours.
