FIFA and official licensee Electronic Arts announced today that EA SPORTS™ FIFA 17 will feature 12 Women’s national football teams for the first time in the game’s history when it launches later this year. The game which is due for North American release from 22 September 2015 onwards, will feature the women’s national squads of Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, England, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Spain, buy fifa 17 coins Sweden, and the United States of America. The women’s teams will represent their respective federations in several FIFA 17 game modes including Kick Off, an offline tournament, as well as Online* Friendly Matches.
Back in Fifa 17, fans would agree that goalkeepers keep conceding goals easily and are appearing weak in front of goal. Because of this, fans have been pretty vocal with their feedback. The Fifa team hence, tried to change how the goalkeeper would respond to the oncoming onslaught. According to EA Sports senior producer, Nick Channon, that improvement would “make the goalkeepers feel right again.” That would result in better defence and less goals conceded. It would certainly increase in competitiveness and skills.
Why some say the Apple-FBI fight may give tech companies a long-term incentive to build products so secure that they cannot be hacked. “If Apple had done it right, and no backdoor was available (to iPhone 5c), this would not be an issue,” Anderson said.There’s no real way for consumers to protect themselves against the privacy concerns raised by possible government-mandated backdoors in mainstream phones on the market today.
Just some general improvements that I think EA could make to their game without too much hassle and things we are expecting in coming games that would improve your overall experience (some may already be mentioned in other discussions so I’ll keep those points limited. It just simply means that the type of players is balanced. Many of the feedback received from fans was that ‘we want to have more confidence in defence’. We didn’t feel the defence fifa 17 points was as tight as it could be. Everyone loved how dribbling worked last year but it was quite difficult to keep up.”
The producers of FIFA also felt that the defenders and midfielders have difficulty to keep up with strikers such as Bale or Messi and that people just stick to playing as Real Madrid or Manchester City so one of the things they decide to improve was the responsiveness of the midfielders and defenders. That’s why a new move “swing step” was designed to counter that. The development team responsible for FIFA 17 meticulously researched player movement and likeness to authentically recreate 12 top women’s teams.
Development was supported by a motion capture session at EA Canada with four top players from United States Women’s Team: Sydney Leroux, Abby Wambach, Alex Morgan, and Megan Rapinoe. In capturing the players’ gestures the FIFA 16 game will now feature new walks, runs, sprints and horizontal movements. Soccer Canada also visited EA to provide full-player references captured using 360 degree body scanning. Referee scans – scanning the referees would add a greater realism to the game and wouldn’t go amiss in creating greater relationships and potential intiatives between the leagues and EA.
