EA has announced an official partnership with Italian giants Juventus – and released some fine-looking screens of the 32-time domestic champions taken with FIFA 17 (opens in new tab)’s Frostbite engine.
Gianluigi Buffon, Paul Pogba, Claudio Marchisio, Giorgio Chiellini, and Paulo Dybala are the first names to be confirmed as having been scanned for the game as a result of the partnership. You can see all five on the official FIFA 17 website (opens in new tab).
In addition to implementing ‘starheads’ for the majority of the squad, EA has captured Pogba’s dab celebration for inclusion in the game – and added an authentic recreation of the club’s 41,000 capacity stadium in Turin.
The news comes after last week’s reveal (opens in new tab) of the Japanese J1 league, which sees 18 new clubs, such as Nagoya Grampus and Kashima Antlers, take their series bow.
FIFA 17 is EA’s first football game made using Battlefield’s widely renowned Frostbite engine. It’s made headlines of late for the announcement of a bespoke story mode (opens in new tab) in this year’s game, called The Journey.
FIFA 17 (opens in new tab) hits every format imaginable on 29 September.
