EA Sports has debuted a teaser trailer for the upcoming next entry in its long-running series of soccer games, FIFA 17, on YouTube.
Packed with classic FIFA video game footage, the trailer focused around a new slogan, “Football has changed,” which is presumably a reference to franchise’s move to the Frostbite engine and not an indication that, say, players will be getting jetpacks this year.
Frostbite has been used in such games as Battlefield 4, Star Wars Battlefront, and Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, and it’ll also power a number of big upcoming games, including Mass Effect: Andromeda. Even from the render of new ambassador Eden Hazard (Chelsea FC), we feel like this will be the most realistic looking FIFA yet. The trailer promised a full reveal coming during EA’s not-technically-at-E3 event, EA Play, June 12th.
Along with Hazard, other ambassadors include Anthony Martial (Manchester United), Marco Reus (Borussia Dortmund), and James Rodríguez (Real Madrid). One of the four players will be included as a special FUT Loan Item with every pre-order of the game.
FIFA 17 is expected to release Fall 2016.
