While a good deal of the buzz about EA Sport’s upcoming FIFA game is on its pioneering story mode, EA Sports hasn’t let the FIFA 17 career mode fall by the wayside. The company just posted a new page to FIFPlay talking about the game mode, where you’ll be able to manage a football team of your very own.
According to the page, you’ll be able to exert greater control over your team’s season than ever before. This includes doing everything from hiring or firing players, to participating in the J-League (the Japanese professional football league), and even have your fully-rendered manager avatar roaming the sidelines during games.
In addition to all of that, the FIFA 17 career mode has ensured that every team has their own sort of personality. You’ll have to balance that personality with managing your team well if you want to succeed.
You will also have to keep in mind the five different aspects of your team’s board: Domestic success (that is, within your own country), continental success (across Europe), brand exposure (sell that merch!), finances (the fruits of selling that merch) and youth development, making sure your younger players can do well.
Promoting youth players, expanding your brand to Asia, and much more can help you become a well-liked manager for your team, as you complete objectives that the game will assign you.
You’ll also have to deal with your Club Worth in the FIFA 17 career mode. This is a readout of how much money your club has, which has various different sources of income and various avenues of expense. This includes income from transfers, loans, match-day revenue, media, merchandising, and more. You’ll also be keeping an eye on the wages of your talent scouts, youth facilities, stadium maintenance, and travel.
You’ll also be able to choose from one of eleven different Frostbite engine-rendered managers to play you as you manage your team.
FIFA 17 will be releasing on September 27 on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
