FIFA 17 Features

At EA Play in June, EA announced several new FIFA 17 features, but did not go into detail about the specifics for many of these. 

We know that FIFA 17 includes re-written set pieces, better in game intelligence, a more physical game and new ways to finish in front of the goal. This is on top of the new My Journey mode that puts you in charge of a new story mode. 

There is a lot of potential for more realism in the stadium, gear and on players using Frostbite.EA announced that there are now 18 teams from the Japan J1 League in FIFA 17.

Set Piece Changes in FIFA 17



You can now control how you kick the ball on a free kick, including the option to kick with the outside of your foot for an almost impossible bend. 

The new targeting system on a corner kick allows you to choose where to put the ball. You can also switch to a player in the box and call for a header. 

Penalty shots will offer more control and run up options. Hopefully there is more actual ball control. 

Fake a throw in, and take more control of the throw to set up a switch or to take off downfield by throwing at pace with a running team-mate.  

Better FIFA 17 AI


In FIFA 17 each player analyzes the space around them and thier opponents to better figure out where to attack. When you have the ball your team mates should make movs to open up better than in FIFA 16.

There are  now fake runs, stunt runs and you can call a player to show support as you build an attack. 

A More Physical FIFA 17 


There are now more battles for position using Pushback Tech that includes new physics for trapping, dribbling and defending. 

You'll see goalkeeper colissions collisions, cross-body tackles, 50/50 battles and players fighting for control of a ball in the air or while one is shielding the ball. 

When you are in control you can shield the ball to keep possession as you dribble in any direction.

    So basically you told us nothing, because you know nothing. You told us exactly what everyone already knows. Just lost a couple of minutes I’ll never get back now reading this crap

    And now you clowns wasted more time bitching about it. The author made no suggestions to this being anything but speculation. I cant wait for 17 either but the only way to know anything official is to hop into a delorean and hit 88mph. even if that was possible, plutonium isnt sold on amazon.

    Finaly Japan league add in the Game.

    Endo, famous for tip kick PK. Morisaki twins, are # 7 and 8 of Hirosima. Nishikawa, has outstanding kick abilitiy for GK. And Nakamura, is the eternal hero of Boston will be on our team!

    Please FIFA include all African major leagues in the game they are worth it. Lets face this is where many top European teams scout players.

    Wow seriously, please read your article over. At the end it states that the game will be out on september 29th in the US, and on september 29th in Europe “This is a Tuesday and Thursday respectively”, NO IT IS THE SAME OR YOU MADE A MISTAKE!!
