FIFA 17 release date has been revealed. Manchester United forward Anthony Martial and Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard will feature on cover images of the brand new FIFA 17 game.

FIFA 17 Release Date 

FIFA 17 developed by EA Sports will be available in the US from September 27, 2016, and for the rest of the world from September 29, 2016.

FIFA 17 is coming on to the PS3 and Xbox 360, and can be played on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. As of now, no price has been announced yet but expect to be in line with the price similar to last year.

FIFA 17 New Feature 

The presence of the Frostbite engine logo confirms that EA has switched from the Ignite engine that was used in previous editions.

It remains to be seen whether FIFA 17 loses some of its unique features in the move to Frostbite. It is however only available on next-gen and PC devices only.

“Frostbite unlocks a whole new world of possibilities for the FIFA franchise and its fans,” said David Rutter, VP and Executive Producer.

“We have never been as excited as we are today about the future of football and the experiences we are going to deliver in FIFA 17.”

The most popular game in the world also introduces four new football ambassadors who have apparently “influenced complete innovation in the action on the pitch”.

Cover Images for FIFA 17 

Manchester United’s Anthony Martial, Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus will feature as cover posters for FIFA 17.

Anthony Martial: The 20-year-old became the most expensive youngster when he joined Manchester United last summer for a reported fee of £36m from Marseille. He silenced his critics with 17 goals in his first season at the club.

Eden Hazard: The Chelsea winger has endured a frustrating campaign for the Blues, but Belgium national team will be hoping that he produces his best form at Euro 2016.

James Rodriguez: Like Hazard, the Colombian superstar has had a disappointing season with Real Madrid, as he fell out of favour to both Rafael Benitez and Zinedine Zidane.

Marco Reus:  The 27-year-old winger has scored 19 goals for Dortmund this season but will miss Euro 2016 for Germany through injury.
