    In the final of four segments focused on gameplay-related improvements to FIFA 17, a new video from EA Sports goes over the work that’s been done in terms of physicality. “A transformation in the way players physically interact in all areas of the pitch. Control is now in your hands as you battle for space and possession.”

    Pushback Tech
    Pushback Tech innovates in trapping, dribbling, physics, and defending to create true-to-life battles for position and the ball. This is especially important when you want to control the ball and buy time for a teammate to make a run or get into a supporting position.

    New Physical Interactions
    Interactions come to life in realistic detail across the entire pitch, like goalkeeper collisions, across-body tackles, 50/50 battles, jostling while ball is in the air and ball control while shielding.

    360° Shield Dribble
    New proximity-based shielding will help you fend off opponents and keep possession. Defenders can be shielded out as you dribble in any direction.
