FIFA 17 is the latest soccer title from the experienced sports game developer EA Canada. It features significant changes and improvements over its predecessor, first and foremost being the switch from Ignite to the more advanced Frostbite graphics engine. Another big addition is The Journey mode, in which the player assumes the role of Premier League’s next rising star, Alex Hunter. While it plays just like the Be A Pro mode on the field, there also are scripted events with multiple dialogue options.
As a result of a fan vote, FIFA 17 now features Marco Reus of Borussia Dortmund on its cover. The other potential candidates were Anthony Martial (Manchester United), James Rodríguez (Real Madrid), and Eden Hazard (Chelsea); these football ambassadors participated in motion capture and helped make the game more realistic.
