In almost all sports game, the entirety of the game is naturally
focused on the game itself. After all, it is a sports game. However,
the reality is, like any other human being, athletes do have lives to
live outside the game, no matter how sports-centric those lives may
be. That is exactly the focus of the new "The Journey" game mode
that EA Sports added to FIFA 17 that details the life of fictional
football player and Premiere League hopeful Alex Hunter, allowing
players to shape his life and his career both on and off pitch.
This is just like the Career Mode in PES but in a different dimension.
You can practically think of it as a story mode added to the highly
popular football game. Instead of simply experiencing the thrills of
the sport through multiple players, gamers can now experience the
entire journey, hence the name, of an athlete. Experience the feels,
the stress, and the social interactions both on pitch, in the locker
rooms, and the world at large.
But unlike simply watching a movie, players get to make the
decisions that will shape Alex Hunter's life and get to experience for
themselve what makes or breaks a professional footballer. All while
traveling the world, playin for any of the 20 Premiere League clubs,
and meeting all sorts of characters throughout the 2016 and 2017
Of course, that's not the only feature arriving with FIFA 17. Dubbed
"Own Every Moment", the game's new mechanics allow players to
control every moment in the pitch. These features include new
penalties, free kicks, corners, and throw-ins, a new active
intelligence system, and new attacking techniques.
FIFA 17 launches on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the PC on
September 27 for North America and September 29 for the rest of
