New FIFA 17 screens show off Bayern Munich's Frostbite makeover

After providing a sneak peek at Juventus in FIFA 17, EA has revealed how another club looks in the game's new Frostbite engine: German champions Bayern Munich.

New FIFA 17 screens show rescanned facial likenesses (starheads, in FIFA parlance) for Arjen Robben, Manuel Neuer, Jerome Boateng, Robert Lewandowski, Kingsley Coman, and Joshua Kimmich.

EA announced a similar deal with Juventus in July, and PES 2017 has been getting in on the act too – Konami and Barcelona are now business partners, meaning Camp Nou is exclusive to PES for the next three years.
