One of the most interesting new FIFA 17 features is the ability to better control shots on goal. The driven shot mechanic allows you to shoot with force, but keep the ball low. You can also head towards the ground, for a better chance of scoring in the box.

EA also shares the new pushback mechanic that allows for more physical play on the pitch. This includes the option to shield the defender from the ball as it is coming to you and then keep the defender shielded so you can position and make a move. Eden Hazard shows how this works in a new FIFA 17 video below.

Will EA come back with a big FIFA 17 upgrade that delivers more than a stats update and a roster upgrade? So far the plans are bold, with a new engine and new AI, but we are waiting for actual gamers to share FIFA 17 gameplay videos to see how it shapes up on the actual pitch.
