If you are planning to buy FIFA 17, you need to read this article: the full Guide to Buy FIFA 17, where you will find the best tips to find the best prices and stores, as well as pick the right edition for you.


Should I buy FIFA 17?

The first question everyone should do is if they are going to buy FIFA 17 or not. If you are reading this article, it is because you probably already made that decision. In fact, only you know how important is money to you, and if it is well spent in FIFA 17 or not. The best we can do is to explain what we think about the buy.


In our opinion, if you are a FIFA fan you definitely should buy FIFA 17. The game has the new motor engine Frostbite and the database is up to date. You can expect a game with the usual issues, like slow servers and lots of bugs, but the fun is guaranteed. In the other hand, if you are a casual player and you are looking for a football / soccer simulation video game, FIFA 17 is still a good choice. You have to choose between FIFA and PES and it looks that the EA's title is still much better than the Konami's video game. If you are not a football fan, then there are many other games that can make you much happier than this one.


FIFA 17 Platforms


Q: For which platform FIFA 17 will be released?

A: Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.


Q: Which platform should I buy FIFA 17 for?

A: FIFA 17 for PC and fourth-gen consoles is a much better game thanks to the Frostbite game engine. However, if you are planning to buy a PS4 or XBox One console only to play FIFA, it will probably cost you more than 300 pounds. It is not worth it. Buy FIFA for the platform you have. Keep in mind that, between PC and fourth-gen consoles, our suggestion goes to PS4 and XB1 because there are too many cheaters on PC.


Q: What are the main differences between FIFA 17 for third-gen and FIFA 17 for fourth-gen consoles?

A: The biggest difference is the new motor engine. Frostbite will bring the graphics and the gameplay to the next level for PC, PS4 and XB1 players.

In contrast to what happened in previous years, the game price is the same for all platforms.


Q: Which are the recommended specifications and minimum required specifications for PC users?

A: They will be announced soon.


FIFA 17 Editions


Q: How many editions there are for FIFA 17?

A: FIFA 17 has three editions: the standard one, the DeLuxe Edition and the Super DeLuxe Edition.


Q: What is included in each edition?

A: Here they are the offers of the three FIFA 17 editions.


Q: What is the difference between the Standard, DeLuxe and Super DeLuxe editions?

A: You can compare the three editions with the help of the following table which outlines the differences between them:


Q: When do packs and loan players codes have to be redeemed?

A: The codes must be redeemed by October 16, 2016. Gold packs and loan players will no longer be valid after February 26, 2017. Late code redemption will result in forfeiture of previous weeks' packs and loan players entitlement. Each packs and loan players weekly offer is valid for 7 days and must be redeemed within that time period. Failure to log into fut and select “my packs” in any given week will result in forfeiture of that week's offering.


Q: Which edition should I buy?

A: If you usually do not play Ultimate Team mode, you should choose the standard edition and save some money. Many will say to you that you to pick the DeLuxe or Super DeLuxe Editions, but we have a different opinion. We know that the gold packs from these two editions are cheaper than if you buy them on the store but there is something you should not forget: you only get one or two gold packs per week, over 20 weeks. This is a huge disadvantage since you need those packs as soon as possible to build your dream team. The market depreciates over the time, so when you redeem your last pack you probably no longer need it. The chance of trying a TOTW player before buying him is interesting but not worth the extra money.


Q: Will FIFA 17 be released in the same date for all platforms?

A: Yes. Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, XBox One and Playstation 4 versions of FIFA 17 will be released in the same date.


Q: What can I do to get early access to FIFA 17?

A: If you have a Playstation or XBox 360, your only choice is to update your EA Account and wait an invitation for the Beta. In other hand, if you are a XBox One or PC owner, you can subscribe the ‘Origin Access' or ‘EA Access' and start playing at September 19. If in your region FIFA 17 is released only at 29, you can buy it in another console's region (USA, Mexico or Canada) and start playing two days earlier.


Q: When will FIFA 17 be released for EA Access and Origin Access subscribers?

A: September 19.


Q: Will FIFA 17 be available in the Vault of EA Access and Origin Access?

A: Yes, but probably only in April 2017.


Q: Until when I can pre-order FIFA 17?

A: Pre-orders are accepted until the day before the FIFA 17 release. The game is dispatched in the release day.


Q: Should I pre-order FIFA 17?

A: If you really plan to buy FIFA 17, you should pre-order it. You will pay the same and get a few offers. However, if you don't plan to play it all the time, buying it later on, especially at Christmas, may be cheaper as game prices can drop around this time.


Stores and Prices

A: Sure. You just need to go to the PSN store or XBox Marketplace and buy FIFA 17. After the payment you will be able to download it and play at midnight of release date.


Q: Should I buy FIFA 17 directly from the console or from a retail store?

A: Through the console it is usually more expensive and you will have to download a huge file. It may be a good choice for who lives in a place where the retail stores don't delivery. A retail store is still our suggestion.


Q: If I buy the download version of FIFA 17 for PC in a retail store, do I still need to have an active Origin account to install it?
