“Serious about simulating the superstar fantasy” is how Ben described EA’s latest instalment of its annually-updated football simulator when he got to grips with it earlier this year

Keeping such a series fresh year-upon-year—FIFA 17 being the 24th main series entry by my (and Wikipedia’s) count—beyond player transfers and kit updates can’t be the easiest of tasks, however the forthcoming outing aims to dazzle in its finer details—such as “immaculately realised” stadium backrooms, facial animations that “more accurately show moving flesh over bone”, and “scowling authentically on the sidelines,” as per Ben's overview. 

So, the big question is: can your system handle it? EA has now revealed FIFA 17’s minimum and recommended system requirements.

The Sunday league:

  • OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 - 64-Bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-2100 @ 3.1GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 965 @ 3.4 GHz
  • RAM 8GB
  • Hard Drive Space Required: 50.0 GB
  • Minimum Supported Video Cards: NVIDIA GTX 460 or AMD Radeon R7 260
  • DirectX: 11.0

The Champion's League:

  • OS: Windows 7/8.1/10 - 64-Bit
  • CPU: Intel i5-3550K @ 3.40GHz or AMD FX 8150 @ 3.6GHz
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Hard Drive Space Required: 50.0 GB
  • Minimum Supported Video Cards: NVIDIA GTX 660 or AMD Radeon R9 270
  • DirectX: 11.0

So there you have it—plenty of time to get your dressing room in order ahead of FIFA 17’s September 27 North American launch, and September 29 everywhere else in the world.
