FIFA 17 News Post



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?

Best news of the day. Hopefully it works as they state.

Sounds good but like everything else I have to see it in action.

Hope this fixes my players running away from loose balls!

Meh! There were no words about teams playing differently. These improvements are good, but it is frustrating that EA continues to ignore this aspect of the game.

I'd like to see more concentration in that area as well, although I in no way believe that every team played identically in FIFA 16. I found this year that the shot attempts for both myself and the CPU could range anywhere between 5 and 20, which is usually a telling statistic regarding the pace of the match.

I'd also like to see them continue to differentiate individual player styles. I felt that they had a small leg up on PES in that regard, even despite PES having some amazing signature motions. FIFA just has more skill moves, and I like the way they tiered them, it makes those 5-star players really feel spectacular when compared with a 3-star guy.

Did anyone notice any differences while playing the demo?

I didn't feel any compared to FIFA 15 or 16.
