EA today unveiled new changes to the FIFA 17 gameplay which will improve the AI on the pitch. As EA touts, they have, "a brand new system introduces constant spatial analysis, increases activity off the ball, and changes the way players move, read, and react."
- Constant Spatial Analysis - Now every player analyzes the proximity of their opponents and the space around them to better identify opportunities in attack. When you are on the ball your teammates understand if you can make a pass and adjust their movement to show for you or make a new run.
- New Run Types - Smarter players and increased activity off the ball give you new and creative ways to open up the opposition. Orchestrated runs with multiple players, fake runs, stunt runs, and calling a player to show support are just a few ways you take control in the build up.
What do you think of these two AI improvements within FIFA 17? Will the off-ball movement and better runs help improve the feel of the gameplay?
