Our fourth FIFA 17 news roundup post will mainly highlight the features revealed at this year’s Gamescom venue and will also include some leaks from the beta version of the game and other news released in the past week:
First of all, if you missed the FIFA 17 conference at Gamescom you can watch it in full below:
At Gamescom we had the next gameplay trailer revealed to which we also did an analysis:
With the announcement of the new FUT features, EA Sports also revealed the new item designs and in the following images you can see the bronze, silver and gold items (rare and non-rare), the in-form items and three new special items:
– Red (Rewards for FUT Champions)
– Blue/Purple (Rewards for Squad Building Challenges)
– Black (Ones To Watch)
The last item is particularly special and we will explain to you why.
Basically with the release of FIFA 17 there will be a number of players, selected by EA, that potentially can have significant performances this season (similar to Vardy last season) and they will be available in packs as Ones To Watch items. The unique feature of this item is if that particular player gets multiple in-forms across the season, his Ones To Watch item will increase in rating as well!
So it’s up to you to keep it or sell it when you think it’s necessary.
The new FIFA Mobile game has been presented at Gamescom as well and you can read more about its new features here.
Android users from Canada, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, or Sweden can already download the game from the Google Play Store, while iOS users from the same countries will have to wait for a few more days in order to play it.
Please remember that this is a “soft” version of the game while the full game will be released later this Fall.
