FIFA 17 – First Patch Released By EA Sports

There has always been a debate among gamers whether PES 17 is better than FIFA 17. The tastes differ and some opt for one game and some for the other. Both games were tested in order to see what the weak sides are and what the advantages are. We reached a conclusion that there are some minor issues regarding FIFA that need to be fixed. EA Sports agreed and they released a patch with fixes for the game.

This is the first patch the EA Sports released and we don’t know how many there will be at the end. For what we know, the patch is massive and it will fix a lot of issues. Many of the changes deal with the gameplay itself, such as passing responsiveness when the ball is in the air. The passing accuracy was unpredictable and confused players once they started attacking.

With the new patch installed the goalkeeper’s positioning will be improved and the contested headers after corner kicks will be more realistic. English Premier League broadcast package which makes the game more lifelike is also added. Furthermore, the game will see some visual upgrades.
