The FIFA 17 demo kicked off yesterday for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Fans will finally get their first look at the brand new single-player campaign (only for PS4, Xbox One and PC), The Journey, and experience how football has changed because of the power of the Frostbite engine.

FIFA 17: The Journey

"For the first time ever in the FIFA franchise, fans will have a chance to live their story on and off the pitch as Alex Hunter, a rising star in the Premier League in The Journey. Players will have the opportunity to play a select experience as a member of Manchester United, one of the world’s top clubs."

As we mentioned in "EA talks about the changes from FIFA 16 to FIFA 17", The Journey reflects the player as a rising football star within the world of football. In a first for FIFA games, fans will get to experience the different aspects of professional football through a story mode. FIFA 17 The Journey touches on the subjects of player contracts, stardom, dealing with a manager and lots more. In The Journey "every decision, every action, every moment impacts your attempt to rise to the highest level of the game," explains EA.

  • EA took two years to make The Journey
  • Score by award-winning composer, Atticus Ross
  • EA enlisted help from football stars Harry Kane (England National Team) and Anthony Martial (French National Team) to "ground" the experience
  • Marcus Rashford (Manchester United) was the Authenticity Consultant
  • Frostbite's power creates an immersive experience - environments, facial expressions, scenes & more
  • Three clubs - Norwich City, Aston Villa, or Newcastle United.
  • Players will encounter real football heroes & managers in The Journey
