Considering EA’s take on Windows 10 with their release of FIFA 17  for mobile, it is safe to assume that EA isn’t one of the big names wanting to pull back their support from Windows phones.

FIFA 17 Mobile app is now up for grabs on Windows Store for users running Windows 10 on her mobiles. The most popular Xbox football title is basically a tweaked version of the previous FIFA release, plus a few additions. But it lacks the obtainability of Career Mode which was included in the last release of the game, this might upset some users who enjoyed this mode particularly for their gameplay.

Focusing on what modes are featured in the game; the attack mode, and leagues. Getting into the details of each individual mode; the Attack Mode is a turn-based mode where each separate player gets his own chance to score as many goals as possible in each interval, the better the score, the better your progress in the game. The Leagues Mode, is designed using a quite social approach, where users are enabled to create matches with their friends using the FIFA 17 Mobile app, and conduct either friendly or interleague matches, that further qualifies them to compete with more advanced teams and leagues. The game also sports an extensive feature of mini gameplay that provides users a way to earn card packs that can be further redeemed in the game and then there is always a feature that allows you to find new players to challenge your gameplay.

The feature rich app FIFA 17 is completely free to play, bundled with time-gating, and accelerator micro-transactions that further expedites the procurements of different players. FIFA 17 also powers EA’s exclusive access to official football data, and sports a total of 30 leagues, 650 real teams, and 17,000 real players. Furthermore, you can customize, create and manage your very own dream team for your matches and also play with advanced touch controls.

“Playing soccer has never been more exciting than in the new FIFA Mobile! Build and manage your team, go head to head, and keep coming back for daily content. Whether you’re a savvy veteran or just starting out on the soccer pitch, FIFA Mobile is bigger and better than ever, completely redesigned and built exclusively for mobile – meaning you can get into the game while on the go.”

If you are still not impressed, FIFA 17 now allows low-end mobile devices to support the game as well as feature an upgraded version of the old FUT 15 AI.

But not to misleads our readers, there are some issues and bugs reported by the users on the store reviews, the game has repeatedly been called out for being “laggy and crashing”. Even the high-end Lumia’s Snapdragon 810 phone, has also been reported to lag when the game is launched and we can only assume how troublesome the game would be on lower-end handsets. Not just the bugs though, users are highly disappointed by the unrealistic injury extent implicated, which requires players to supersede way often or either use their injury cards.

Though there is still no Xbox integration of the app available unlike its previous version but still, we are thankful for such an eminent game being rolled out for Windows 10 Mobile.
