FIFA is finally back with the release of FIFA 17! FIFA 17 is the latest soccer video game in the FIFA series, scheduled to be released on September 27, 2016 in North America. This will be the first FIFA game in the series to use the Frostbite game engine. In July of 2016, it was announced that, after a public vote, Marco Reus would feature on the cover of the game.
FIFA 17 will feature a new single-player story campaign mode titled “The Journey” for PS4, Xbox One and Windows where players assume the role of Alex Hunter, a young footballer trying to make his mark in the Premier League. The player will be able to select one of 20 Premier League clubs to play for at the beginning of the season. The player can play any position including goalkeeper. The story mode also features a dialogue wheel, similar to the Mass Effect series. As for the main character in “The Journey”, Alex Hunter is a 17-year-old multiracial male from Clapham, London. Hunter’s grandfather is former English striker Jim Hunter. Under his grandfather’s guidance, Hunter has decided to play as a footballer in the Premier League, which is where the player will pick up the story.
EA Sports announced at E3 2016 that they will have all 20 Premier League managers’ likenesses in the game. The new features in FIFA 1 7 include new attacking techniques, physical player overhaul, active intelligence system and set piece rewrite.
Naturally, everyone wants to know which of the teams are going to be the best, and a lot of the usual suspects occupy the top 5 teams to use! Check them out below!
Yet again, Barcelona is by far the best team in FIFA. Boasting the best player in the world, and two of the other top 6 or 7, Barcelona’s attacking prowess is unmatched by any other team in the game.
2. Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich comes in as the second best team in the game. With a forward three & back four all rated above 87, Bayern may be the most well-rounded team in the game.
3. Manchester United
With the offseason additions of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, & Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Manchester United is yet again one of the biggest soccer forces in the world.
4. Real Madrid
Real Madrid did not make any big offseason signings, and that’s what puts them at number 4. Their team was already loaded, so they were going to be top 5 no matter what, but their lack of off-season additions is what kept them from rising.
5. Manchester City
Manchester City added Kevin De Bruyne to an already stacked lineup, making them the 5th best team in the game.
