EA Sports revealed they ‘played it safe’ with FIFA 17, because it was the first game in the series to use the Frostbite engine.
Frostbite, developed by EA Dice, powers a number of games from the publisher – including Need for Speed: Payback and Battlefield 1.
It was introduced to last year’s FIFA 17 – which was generally well received.
But speaking to Gamereactor, EA executive vice president Patrick S?derlund says this year’s FIFA 18 will take more risk and push the limits of what the engine can achieve.

He told the website: “Last year we got FIFA on to Frostbite for the first time. This year we’ll see the second version of it on Frostbite which, you’ll see, looks a lot better, plays a lot better, and is more of a complete transformation from what the game was, which was always going to be the case.
“When you move technology platform like we did on FIFA, you have to balance risk vs reward, and you have to make sure the fifa 18 coins game actually works and that you don’t screw things up that were good in the previous generation, but still improve.
“So we had to play it a little bit safe with last year’s game, FIFA 17, and with FIFA 18 this year we can go all in, and you can see it. You can see the game looks better, plays better, we’ve been able to take more risk and push the engine harder, which I hope people are going to see.”
For those wanting to get their hands on the new game, it’s not long before the FIFA 18 demo arrives.
It’s set to land on September 15 – two weeks before launch.
