Fifa 17 is to be built with DICE’s Frostbite engine, EA has announced. This is part of EA’s plan to move all of their sports games onto the more powerful engine.
Fifa 17 will also be released for last-gen consoles but will continue to use the Ignite engine. It’s still unconfirmed whether this will be Fifa’s final year on last-gen consoles but it’s clear that this change will encourage many gamers to make the upgrade.
The Frostbite engine is currently being used by DICE in games such as Battlefield, Star Wars Battlefront and the soon to be released Mass Effect .
Expect to see a full reveal of FIFA 17 when EA holds it media briefing at this year’s E3.
FIFA 17 will launch on the 29th of September on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC.
