EA Sports’ annual football franchise gets an all-new game engine
Today, we’re thrilled to reveal that EA Sports FIFA 17 is powered by Frostbite on PlayStation 4. One of the industry’s leading game engines, Frostbite delivers authentic, true-to-life action, takes players to new football worlds, and introduces fans to characters full of depth and emotion.
To see the full debut of FIFA 17 powered by Frostbite, fans can watch the EA PLAY livestream at 9:00pm BST/10.00pm BST on 15th June on http://www.ea.com/play2016/.
“Frostbite unlocks a whole new world of possibilities for the FIFA franchise and its fans,” says David Rutter, VP and Executive Producer. “We have never been as excited as we are today about the future of football and the experiences we are going to deliver in FIFA 17.”
FIFA 17 also introduces four new football ambassadors who have influenced complete innovation in the action on the pitch. James Rodriguez of Real Madrid C.F., Anthony Martial of Manchester United, Eden Hazard of Chelsea FC, and Marco Reus of Borrusia Dortmund are four world-class attacking footballers who are capable of changing any game.
