UPDATE: PES 2017 vs FIFA 17 – The Battle Begins [Detailed Comparison]
ea fifa 17

Only 5 months away, Electronic Arts much loved FIFA series will get a new edition. With UEFA EURO 2016 and PES 2016 upgrading a lot of skills, stats and features, there are very high expectations from EA FIFA 17. Here are some rumours and confirmed features we discovered for you.

FIFA 17 Cover Star
All FIFA 17 fans will be delighted to see who replaces Lionel Messi on the cover while this may be debatable but it will be someone new this time. With Konami signing up with Ronaldo of Real Madrid, it is all a surprise. It is rumoured that one of England’s forward would be on the cover. Let’s keep our fingers crossed shall we. Also, there is a poll going to happen and fans get to decide who they want on the cover of FIFA 17.

FIFA 17 Player Stats
We will see some player stats upgrades and improvement in in-game strengths of the teams. Like Leicester winning BPL this year, but in FIFA 2016, the team lacked the much-needed swiftness and stats.

FIFA 17 Golden Ball
We love knowing who gets the player of the season Golden Ball, which is decided by voting. French sports journalists who closely follow the sport give Ballon d’Or to the most indispensable player of that season in every competition.

FIFA 17 New Teams
While FIFA 16, introduced women teams, this edition will add more women teams and make them better than before. Unlike adding just a few National teams, FIFA 17 will have top 16 teams for you to play with. Though we have confirmation that no women leagues team will be included in this edition. Nevertheless, this is a great start.

FIFA 17 Skill Moves
While a lot of new celebrations and skills were introduced and dribbling was made a lot smoother, but expectations from FIFA 17 skill section are still going to be sky high. We hope that EA won’t take it lightly and give us a fairly challenging and smooth gameplay n bother career mode and otherwise.

Let us know what you guys are looking for in FIFA 17 in the comments below.

    We will love to have UEFA Champions League fully licensed and improvement on Many player faces especially In BPL

    • Rhonda White

      But the exclusive rights for UEFA Champions League are with Konami. We miss it too.

  • fardeen

    please get the EURO 2016 and UEFA Champions League on FIFA 17

    • Rhonda White

      Maybe after 3 years, when the fresh bidding will happen. Till then, no chance.

  • Matt

    Personally as I support a team in the championship and potentially having Villa Newcastle Sunderland or Norwich is ground on the game still with QPR and maybe hull if they don’t go up, in the championship I think it’s only right the other 19 teams have there’s on here surely?

    Also in the edit player mode allow to have the colour tape of your teams home and away socks? Surely this would improve it and even maybe the white socks they were over there socks which they then put the tape around they want it as realistic as possible don’t they?

    Also when you go up from the championship or get relagated the badges on the shirt should change so if you go from the championship to premier league promoted you should have premier league badges and if you go from the premier league to championship they should change to SKY bet football league badges surely this would also improve it?

    Also in career mode I know it’s just shut In real life but doesn’t mean Fifa can’t use it which is the loan window after the summer and January Windows close this would also make it better for football league clubs on there?

    And last mix the kits up so if you want you can wear your home top with away shorts and home socks, you see what I’m saying there all these would improve the game

    If they want it realistic add these

    • Bradley

      These a completely aesthetic changes. Do you even play the game or just look at it?

  • bobby

    might as well put Alex Morgan again in the cover or another Female player in the cover like the back four defense for the usa womens national team

  • salmaninhovic

    sterling@ if u want uefa champions league in fifa then tell fifa to allow konami to have bundesliga epl and National teams licensed in pes 17.Thanks

  • Andy Smyth

    Any chance of getting the Northern Irish League “DANSKE Bank Premiership” on fifa17 and future fifa’s please

  • put none leauge clubs in it make it more fun

  • Phill

    I will like to see a cool feature in the game just like watching a match on TV, like if a player gets a red card you will see on the top of the screen showing that, that team is playing with 10 men or depends on how many red cards

    • rexx

      Exactly what you’ve thought of is one special feature m8 imagine you going to watch a champions league final or any league cup final that will be awesome. 9ce 1 m8.

  • Luis

    they should put a street mode or they should get a new fifa street for the xbox one and ps4 version that well be great what you guy think???

  • Anthony

    Make a dive button.,

  • Cloudy Jo

    Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez are the only players who should be on the cover, no doubt about it. There are no others who performed as well as they did this year!

  • Bradley

    Players contracts expiring on career mode. Means you can build a super team far too easily

  • Henry

    manager mode needs a radical improvement

  • Cryptek

    In online coop mode – please allow us to see match and season stats for each human so that we can compare performance with our partners.

    • Peter

      Bring back hall of fame for coop mode. And of course more statistic, not only top 100

  • Z-Dog

    At the end of a manager season they should not take all of your money and give you a new balance.

  • Big dirty

    The goalkeeper. sometimes he let’s the ball roll past him for a corner instead of jumping on it or picking it up. It gets me angry.

  • Jamie Vardy

    Congrtas to EA for the nice fifa16 edition, it is a great step forward. Pls make league win celebration more intensive and euphorical. Like the BPL make it more interesting on career mode

  • Harry Dunn

    I think when you get promoted in career mode you should be able to upgrade your stadium so when you are a champions league club from league 2 you aren’t playing at a 20 thousand seater stadium

  • Miums

    Could you correct the game faces of players, especially that of African players. Ther are aweful. I mean good game faces.

  • farhad hakimi

    Here are some of the ideas that I think will make FiFa 17 way better

    1. If possible can you add sponsorship in career modes. That way when a team does good they get more sponsors and they have more budget to work with.

    2. We should get more access to our reserve and u21 and u18 teams

    3. Charismatic managers like Klopp, Murinhio

    4. Updated kits for each season

    5. Other leagues like Chinese leagues and Croatia and Serbia which are competitive

    6. Stadium expansions and also upgrades and even building new stadiums if possible

    7. sell of tickets and also merchandises like Madden NFL?

    8. Ways to increase budgets (i.e Take overs)

  • MortenM

    Realistic defending and goalkeeping in Pro Clubs would be nice! Nay, essential! Defenders and keepers are utter morons, and the referees are inconsistent and mostly braindead.

  • Jarred Hiller

    Or you can keep it traditional and have a guy on the cover. Thats the way it should be and thats where all the money is made . Which ks why ea needs to focus on completing the mens side before adding thewomens teams
