This year’s annual Electronic Arts soccer title is being powered by DICE’s Frostbite Engine, according to a recent announcement made by the publisher. Certainly one that EA is using for many of its newest games the Frostbite Engine has powered titles like Battlefield, Dragon Age, Battlefront, Mass Effect, Need For Speed and other titles. It’s rarely been used for sports game, with the exception being the engine used for last year’s Rory McIlroy PGA Tour.
“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,” according to a press release from the company.
A first look at the game will be coming up soon. The debut for FIFA 17 will take place at EA Play, the company’s annual press conference. The company has also announced that the game will arrive on September 29th, globally. However, FIFA 17 will be a part of the EA Access program on Xbox One and PC. Players can play the game earlier than the global release by being a member of this program, though no official timing on the launch of FIFA 17 for EA Access has been given at this time.
