The first update for FIFA 17 released for PC players a few days ago, however, now the update has finally arrived on PS4 and Xbox One.

I bounced off FIFA 17 way harder than any FIFA before it. Normally, I make it a few months before my passion to play it dwindles away. This time I only made it two weeks. After a few more updates, hopefully the game will be better, and I will be able to return to one of my favorite franchises.
