So it actually is on Frostbite? Color me surprised. This is actually a huge change for milions of players who play everyday, getting used to new engine after years on the same old one will be tremendous.

A new graphics engine won't result in all new gameplay.

I fucking hope so. If this shit has more high pressure abuse, more top corner finesses from 45' angles, 40 yard long shots, instant-fake-shot control, ball roll glitch, animation frames glitch abuse... god so many engine exploits in the current game.

Hope it's all fixed with the move to Frostbite.

Aww yis. Adjusted the brightness a little.

Can't fucking wait.

Edit: Oh shit is that Mourinho at the sideline of the Man Utd match against BVB?

It's not just a graphics engine, it's a total engine change. It will affect every little thing like physics. They can't just take the gameplay engine of 16, hook it up with Frostbite and hit re-compile. If the gameplay is similar again, they had to make it similar from scratch.

The Ignite engine was a lie anyway, it was a slightly tweaked version of the engine they were using before this gen. This is the most radical shift in the technology of a FIFA game since 09 I believe.

Will a new graphics engine change the gameplay? I actually have no idea.
Yes, because Frostbite will be doing more than just graohics.

One of the really cool things about FIFA being in Frostbite finally, the engine now supports instant replays.

Kill cams anyone?

Frostbite engine change is certainly intriguing.

I know you can't always read into the quality of visuals from announcements and trailers, but those screens do look good. And crucially they do look different. Hopeful that the move to Frostbite proves to be significant.

At the very least this means a new Coutinho model that isn't based on scans from four years ago.

Right? Right?

Hasn't Fifa had instant replays for like...decades now?
Yeah, I'm talking about the implications of Frostbite now running FIFA and all the engine requirements they must have developed to support Frostbite running a sports title and not a level based shooter/racing title. The engine was level based before this and didn't to my knowledge support instant replays among other things like the former sports engine did.
