EA Sports dropped the new teaser for FIFA 17 this morning announcing they would be switching their game engine to Frostbite.
The introduction of EA game engine Frostbite is massive news for FIFA gamers. Frostbite is a game engine that powers some of EA’s most popular games: Battlefield, Mass Effect: Andromeda and Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. Frostbite will take over EA’s Ignite game engine, which looks to be discontinued indefinitely.
Like anything new, there are always risks involved and Frostbite is no different. Some video gamers on social media are saying the birth year of Frostbite for FIFA could see the quality drop from 1080p to 900p.
On the other hand, gamers are also saying this could see the death of FIFA rival Pro Evolution Soccer by Konami, who have arguably had the better graphics over the years. With the arrival of EA’s advanced Frostbite game engine, and FIFA’s domination of League licenses, Pro Evo might be in some serious trouble.
It’s hard to not speculate when FIFA is involved, but David Rutter, VP and Executive Producer says that EA will reveal all at their Play event on Sunday, June 12.
“Frostbite unlocks a whole new world of possibilities for the FIFA franchise and its fans. 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.”
