It’s been 20 years since the first FIFA came out, and EA is doing everything it can to make sure FIFA 17 will be one to remember. During its E3 conference, EA revealed a brand new addition to the franchise: a story mode called “The Journey.” Gamers will be playing as Alex Hunter, a young footballer trying to make it big in the game. In addition, Manchester United’s new coach, José Mourinho, made a guest appearance during the presentation.
Mourinho didn’t appear on stage for nothing; he will also appear in FIFA 17 as one of the coaches in the game, alongside Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, and Arsene Wenger. However, those weren’t the only changes from FIFA 16 that EA made. The game has abandoned the Ignition Engine used for previous games in favor of the well-known Frostbite Engine, allowing the development team to overhaul gameplay elements such as set pieces, physical play, and the intelligence system.
