FIFA 17

Just a couple of days more and FIFA 17 will make its official debut on September 27 on platforms such as PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PS4 and Xbox One. The new EA Sports football simulation is therefore preparing to challenge, even in this season, the competition with its Konami’s PES 2017, already available on the market for a couple of weeks.

As you all know, Fifa 17 is having a huge install size, so if you are looking to play the game at launch, you should preload the title starting from now.

According to users report, FIFA 17 weighs 32.44 GB on PlayStation 4 and 39.40 GB on Xbox One, average size for a triple A title. However, in the forums of EA Sport players have commented that the download takes a long time, even with High speed internet connections.

Regardless of the speed of Internet, players mention that FIFA 17 takes 5 to 6 hours to be unloaded. In the forums it is the case of a user who took one hour to get the game, while others say that in just five hours the download was only 60%.

To resolve this issue, Electronic Arts decided to open the possibility to download the game before its official release, only for those who pre-ordered the title, in order to avoid problems with saturation of servers so you can enjoy FIFA 17 from the first minute of 27 September.
