A new trailer debuted for FIFA 17 during EA’s Press Conference, showcasing the changes that have come to the gameplay.

These improvements include:

Set Piece Rewrite – New penalties, free kicks, corners, and throw-ins bring creativity and variety in every dead ball situation.


Physical Play Overhaul – U.S. Patent-Pending Pushback Technology changes the way players physically interact in every situation and introduces a new shielding system that gives fans more control when in possession or battling to win the ball.


Active Intelligence System – A brand new intelligence system gives players the ability to better define and classify space to make smarter decisions off the ball. Players will utilize several New Run Types like fake, direct, and stunted runs to stay even more active off the ball.


New Attacking Techniques – New options in attack give fans more ways to create chances and finish in front of goal. Send teammates in with a Threaded Through Pass and put exciting goals away with a Driven Finish or Downward Header.

FIFA 17 will launch on September 29, 2016 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360, with a new single player mode called The Journey. You can watch the gameplay trailer below.
