FIFA 17 Set Piece

EA Sports rewrites set pieces for FIFA 17

Published On July 26, 2016 | By David Wriglesworth | News

EA Sports has revealed it will be injecting personality and giving players more control over set pieces in FIFA 17.

Among the changes are a new targeting system from corners, the option to approach penalties from different angles and the ability to walk the line from throw-ins.

The full list of adjustments can be found below.

Direct Free Kicks

Customise your run up on free kicks to create more variety in the spin and movement on the ball. You can now deliver worldies like outside of the foot direct free kicks that bend around the opposition.

Corner Kicks

A new targeting system from corners lets you pick out teammates with greater precision and changes the way your teammates move as you deliver the pass. Switch to a player in the box and have your teammate pick you out for the perfect header.

Penalty Kicks

Move freely in your run up on the ball, approach from different angles and at different speeds, and put some personality on your penalties to take control from the spot.

User Controller Throw-Ins

Walk the line to gain a better position on your throw. Fake your throw to keep your defender guessing. And throw it with pace to a teammate.
