EA also used Frostbite game engine in their recent and forthcoming titles such as Mass Effect: Andromeda, Mirror's Edge: Catalyst and Battlefield 1. The technology provides authentic and true-to-life action to the FIFA 17 by bringing visuals to life.
In terms of gameplay, free kicks, penalties, corners and and throw-ins look different compare to previous FIFA title. In the new game, there's no more right or left indicator during penalty kicks. During corners, there's a ball indicator which players have to move before a kick. In addition, by holding the X button longer, players will launch a stronger kick, as per reports from Windows Central.
The game also provides better active intelligence system. In the previous version of FIFA, there's a lack of clever off-ball movement. Now, players can use new run types like direct runs and dummy runs to set-up game-winning goals.
Furthermore, physical play is improved. The new system uses real-time physical interactions. In every contact, expect that there is a realistic outcome for the players involved.
