EA have announced some new features for FIFA 17's Career Mode, including allowing you to choose a manager avatar and a new feature known as 'Total Club Management'.

Total Club Management involves the breaking down of board objectives depending on the areas that they see as the most important. Each team will have different objectives based upon their club management style in real life. The different categories that you will be judged upon are:

  • Domestic Success
  • Continental Success
  • Brand Exposure
  • Financial Management
  • Youth Development

The importance of each of these objectives depends on the real life objectives of the club you are managing. If you take over Manchester City, then you will be judged mostly on Continental Success, whilst almost not at all on Financial Management, whilst Southampton's manager will be heavily judged on Youth Development.

FIFA 17 also introduces a new Financial system known as 'Club Worth'. This offers an in depth evaluation of both your club's earnings and expenditures, including transfers, player wages, match day revenue and stadium maintenance.

Using the new Frostbite engine, you can now choose from 11 manager avatars that will appear on the sideline during matches.

FIFA 17 will also include the Japanese J1-League, with 18 Japanese teams now playable in Career Mode.

These new features add to the new game mode that EA have already announced, 'The Journey'. FIFA 17 comes out on September 29 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
