FIFA 17 Features

As for those asking why they should get a copy of the FIFA 17 game, EA has incorporated FrostBite for a real-life feel of the game.

The Reveal Trailer shows how football video games have changed over the years. Now, with the powerful Frostbite engine, gamers will have a smoother but more realistic feel for the game. Tech Radar describes the newest installation of FIFA 17 as having “crisp, clear graphics.” Caution for players: the Frostbite engine will only work on newer game consoles so make sure your gaming device is compatible.

Fox Sports notes Lionel Messi is missing in the frontlines for FIFA 17. However, four new players get cover duty in the persons of Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez, Manchester United’s Anthony Martial, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Dortmund’s Marco Reus.
