FIFA 17's new story mode and Frostbite engine support are just the tip of the iceberg, says EA Sports.

EA Sports is making big claims about FIFA 17, describing it as a "massive" game that's been years in the making.

In fact, FIFA 17 gameplay producer Aaron McHardy told Daily Star Online that it's the biggest FIFA game EA Sports has ever made. 

And according to McHardy, Frostbite support and the story-based Journey mode are only the tip of the iceberg.

Describing it as the "culmination of years of work, McHardy said: "We often do things that are two or so years in the making, but we had the Frostbite engine which was more than three years, The Journey was more than two years.

"Within gameplay, our set piece re-write was two years, the technology behind our physical play overhaul was three years in the making.

"We've had a lot of things burning for a long while and they're finally culminating in FIFA 17 - so it's by far the biggest one ever."

FIFA 17 is also set to be the best looking game in the series, representing a big jump forward visually.

"Sometimes you don't realise how much of a difference you're making because you're making incremental changes every single day.

"We got to a point where we were like it ‘it looks pretty good, let's put it next to last years and see if it's better' and we were just like, wow! we didn't realise it was THAT much better.

"We've now got the beams coming down from the stadium lights, we've got the way that you can see the density in the pitch and the distance and the three dimensional nature of the environment.

"Hands down, this is the best looking FIFA we've ever made."

But if a recent Manchester United player ratings leak is anything to go by, not everybody will be quite so happy about the new FIFA.

Utd fans probably won't like the fact that Anthony Martial has an overall rating of 78, while fellow striker Marcus Rashford is only rated at 73, despite his England call up.

Wayne Rooney is among the highest rated Manchester United players, earning a player rating of 85.

It's higher than the 83 attributed to Juan Mata and the 80 given to Michael Carrick, although it's not quite as high as David De Gea's 87.

FIFA 17 will be released for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Origin for PC on September 27.
