THE FIFA 17 release date is weeks away and rivals PES 2017 will host their demo next week, but for now beta testers have leaked Liverpool’s player ratings
FIFA 17 is released in less than a month and as we gear up for the latest outing of the EA Sports series, the games developers are currently allowing a select group of players access to the game early.
These special individuals will be playing the games closed beta. A sort of demo that allows EA to gather as much data as possible to help them iron out any big issues or bugs before the game is released to the wider public.
However it also means that one or two people are able to leak the games official player ratings well before the game his shop shelves in September.
And while these stats won’t necessarily go unchanged before the game launches, it does provide a fairly decent framework for understanding roughly how highly rated some players will be.
In this case, we’re looking at Liverpool’s stats and you can take a closer look using the gallery below.
While certainly not a bad squad by any stretch of the imagination, Liverpool don’t have any stand out star players in the team.
In fact, their highest rated player is Phillip Courtino on 84 and by comparrison, the underwhelming Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is rated 86.
That being said England striker Daniel Sturridge, absent for most of last season, is rated a decent 83, while Firmino is just behind on 82.
Last week EA Sports revealed a stonking new trailer and you can watch it below.
“FOOTBALL IS BACK and it’s Powered by Frostbite! See new signings, skill moves, celebrations, and Own Every Moment with FIFA 17 gameplay,” reads the trailers description.
The new trailer was released during the EA Gamescom live stream, along with plenty of new details about the game.
Primarily this gave plenty of new information about how the revamped FUT mode has changed since FIFA 16 and all new changes can be seen just below.
In addition plenty of details was also shared about the games new FIFA mobile app which EA say will feature: “Attack Mode, daily live content, a fresh approach to squad building, and online leagues to compete against players worldwide.”
We’ve lost count of exactly how many new features and improvements EA Sports have made to the game this year.
But in short, this year EA Sports are going big.
The famous developers are promising to take a “major leap forward” for the ever popular FIFA series.
So far the team have already introduced one significant change by using DICE’s Frostbite engine to give the game that added sense of fidelity.
But there’s also been major changes to the main game.
Last night EA Sports revealed what is set to change for the FIFA 17 Legends and FUT modes, but prior to that they’d also showed fans how they’d completely rewritten how the game plays.
There’s been a set-piece rewrite, new options in attack, a series of changes to improve movement off the ball and most recently an overhaul of the FIFA physical play mechanics.
