The First ‘FIFA 17’ Trailer Is A Glorious Look At The Evolution Of Digital Soccer

Since 1993, FIFA has been a household mainstay. A game that has nearly perfected the digital soccer field, and a product that could be affiliated with the rise of popularity in U.S. soccer. (That’s conjecture but you can’t deny the connection.) For more than 20 years, with some downs and a lot of ups, FIFA has become one of the most popular video games in the world not just because of its affiliation with hundreds of clubs belonging to the most popular sport on the planet, but also because it’s just a damn good game. Relationships have been ruined because of FIFA.

Now, it seems as if EA is taking FIFA firmly into the next generation. The last few iterations of the game have been good, but you could tell they were built upon old tech, with features that have been grandfathered in from the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 era. Now, EA is teasing us with the Frostbite logo, meaning a whole new engine and seemingly a whole new FIFA are coming our way this fall.

Will it really be that good? How much better can EA make FIFA? It seems like the next trailer will truly let us know before we get our hands on it.
