New information about FIFA 17 was unveiled during EA’s E3 press conference.
Chief competition officer Peter Moore presented the audience with an all-new mode to be introduced in the next FIFA title called The Journey. In The Journey, players will assume the role of Alex Hunter, a young star-in-the-rising, following his path to glory. In the new game mode, the player will potentially come across 20 managers
trying to guide him to the top, few of which are confirmed to be Pep Guardiola, Jürgen Klopp, Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho. (Fun Fact: Mourinho also made an on-stage guest appearance during the conference and had a brief chat with Moore about his son playing FIFA all night)
Producer Aaron McHardy then proceeded to name four big gameplay changes that will be made in the upcoming title. FIFA 17 promises physical play overhaul, a new active intelligence system which makes players move and act smarter while more attacking techniques have been added, giving the players more options in the final third of the pitch. Set pieces have also been rewritten, in an attempt to give the players full control of every dead ball.
