FIFA 17 Story Mode Has A Mass Effect Like Dialogue Wheel Response System

Cue Mass Effect Theme

Posted By | On 14th, Jun. 2016 Under News


In a bid to make the franchise even more realistic, Electronic Arts is adding all-new narrative-driven features in FIFA 17’s story mode. Chief among these is, oddly enough, a dialogue wheel that brings Mass Effect to mind. While Bioware’s got their hands full with Mass Effect: Andromeda, EA’s decided to bring over one of that galaxy-trotting franchise’s highlight features to their…football game.

How exactly does that work? The dialogue wheel, a Mass Effect innovation, allows you to forgo full-length responses, opting instead for responding with a particular “tone.” In FIFA 17’s The Journey mode, the narrative centres around a  young footballer named Alex Hunter.

But instead of having canned cutscenes, you’re given a degree of player agency by making Mass Effect-style dialogue choices as Alex interacts with the coach, his friends, and others. While we’re at it, let’s not forget that there’s a football game in their somewhere. EA’s also decided to switch over to the Frostbite 3 engine. While we’re not sure this will result in increased stand destructibility, FIFA 17’s visuals will be sharper than ever.

Thanks, EuroGamer.
