Perhaps the greatest misconception surrounding the beautiful game, other than the fact that goals simply don’t exist, is that it’s not a contact sport. Despite the fact that you can’t openly deck your opponents like you’re a free safety, to say that there’s absolutely no physical play is simply nonsensical. EA Sports recognizes this, and this is why physical play is getting a massive overhaul in FIFA 17.
In honor of the changes, EA has released a trailer that highlights some of the differences players can expect when they hop into the latest edition of the world’s most popular soccer franchise. If you’re looking for a game that allows you to actively jockey for position during dead balls, look no further.
For more information on FIFA 17, which launches on September 29 on PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, stay tuned to Hardcore Gamer for the latest.
