"FIFA 17" is just around the corner and EA Sports braces up for lofty expectations from gaming world. "FIFA 17" is set to invade PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Sept 27.

Sports-based genre like "FIFA 17" is a tricky business in video gaming because they are prone to intensive reviews from gamers and sports fans alike. Gamers will look for good graphics and video elements.

On the other hand, sports fans are looking for gameplay that is as realistic as possible. Last installment from EA Sports "FIFA 16" was able to achieve both so this new release is living under huge pressure to surpass its predecessor.

Ranking on top among expected changes for "FIFA 17" is on-time ratings synchronization with actual soccer players. Outside the video games, Lionel Messi is on top of the food chain in the ongoing Premier League.

However, look closer at Cristiano Ronaldo in his EUFA performance and it is easy to spot that he is trailing by hairline difference if not at par with Messi. Gamers are expecting same ratings vibrancy situation in "FIFA 17," according to Games Lounge.

Gamers hone their character's skills by frequenting matchups in FIFA series. However, a prominent request during the development stage of "FIFA 17" is to reintroduce the indoor mode where players can play with fewer protagonists.

This feature was seen in the original FIFA but lost throughout the years. Imagine calibrating the character with indoor mode and unleashing him in full-play matchups. In a related development, "FIFA 17" Web App is to launch earlier than main game, Express said.

There is no specific nor concrete date yet for  "FIFA 17,"  but EA Sports set the schedule at sketchy "week before the formal release." Web App will act similar to season prelude where gamers can start planning and scouting for talents to beef up their teams.

Don't fret too much for those who will take advantage of this head start because late gamers may still catch up before Sept 29. Another good option is to avail EA subscription where players can access a 10-hour trial period that starts on Sept 22.
