Electronic Arts today released an all-new gameplay trailer showcasing many of the new kits, transfers, celebrations, skill moves, newly-modeled players, and innovative gameplay features in FIFA 17, powered by Frostbite on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
Celebrating the real-world return of several licensed football leagues from FIFA 17, the trailer, captured in-game, highlights true-to-life action powered by the industry-leading new game engine, putting fans in control of every moment on the pitch when it launches on September 27th in North America and September 29th worldwide.
“This is a revolutionary season for FIFA,”
Said David Rutter, GM and Executive Producer.
“In June we revealed a new game engine, a deep set of gameplay features and mechanics, and the introduction of an immersive, narrative-driven mode in FIFA 17: The Journey. The response from fans was amazing, and now to announce what will be the biggest season yet in FIFA Ultimate Team and introduce innovation in the most popular modes across the game – we can’t wait for people to play.”
Part of the biggest season yet in Ultimate Team, FIFA 17 introduces two new ways to play within the franchise’s most popular mode with Squad Building Challenges and FUT Champions. Squad Building Challenges gives fans the opportunity to test their management skills on console or in the FUT 17 companion app, as well as earn in-game rewards by fulfilling squad requirements with players from their Club. Once the requirements are met, fans can exchange squads in each challenge to redeem rewards. FUT Champions is a new way for all fans to compete in daily knockout tournaments for in-game rewards and the chance to play in the Weekend League. Once fans make the Weekend League, they will compete to win matches and rank up for rewards. Each Weekend League performance counts, as combined wins help fans rank up the Monthly Leaderboard for the chance to earn the biggest in-game rewards in FUT.
“The popularity of Ultimate Team, combined with the global nature of the most popular sports franchise on the planet, makes FIFA 17 a very exciting title for a season of competitive gaming like the one we are announcing today. From qualifying via FUT Champions to competing in the Ultimate Team Championship Series and FIFA Interactive World Cup, we want all players to experience the thrill of competition, and we have a great season ahead for all our fans.”
Said Peter Moore, Chief Competition Officer, Electronic Arts.
