In almost all sports game, the entirety of the game is naturally focused on the game itself.

That is exactly the focus of the new "The Journey" game mode that EA Sports added to FIFA 17 that details the life of fictional football player and Premiere League hopeful Alex Hunter, allowing players to shape his life and his career both on and off pitch.

Experience the feels, the stress, and the social interactions both on pitch, in the locker rooms, and the world at large.

But unlike simply watching a movie, players get to make the decisions that will shape Alex Hunter's life and get to experience for themselve what makes or breaks a professional footballer.

Of course, that's not the only feature arriving with FIFA 17.

FIFA 17 launches on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the PC on September 27 for North America and September 29 for the rest of the world.

Fifa 17 was officially revealed during EA's pre-E3 2016 press conference in Los Angeles, and all the talk is about its ambitious new single player mode: The Journey.

At a preview event held a couple of weeks prior to the conference, IBTimes UK sat down with series line producer Aaron McHardy to discuss the strange-but-intriguing new mode.

Will the character and leagues change from region to region?

Did you ever consider having a custom player character?

We did, and we decided against it because customising the player seems like a simple, trivial thing, but it has ramifications through the story that are extensive.

Theoretically and technically that's all possible, but again, we can't comment on anything past the game we're building for release in September.

What exactly will Madden NFL '17 have to say about Colin Kaepernick in its next "live commentary" patch update?

We'll find out soon enough.

For years, EA Sports' major-league games have included downloadable weekly updates to address real-life issues like injuries and player trades.

This year, the company's biggest American series, Madden NFL, is going one step further by adding a human touch to these weekly add-ons—updated commentary tracks.

Over the course of the 2016-17 NFL season, you'll hear the game's narrators, real-life sports analysts Charles Davis and Brandon Gaudin, remark on current football events.

And if this week's any indication, they won't focus only on the biggest news in touchdowns, trades, and tackles.

Longshot is a single story driven campaign launched by EA Sports in Madden NFL 20 and will return to season two this year.

As last year, longshot will focus on the characters Devin Wade and colt cruise and continue their story.

However, EA Sports promises to pay more attention to actual football matches and NFL related events in this year's advertising series.

In fact, EA Sports claims that the number of games in longshot this year will be four times that of last year.In longshot's second season, Devin Wade will continue his NFL career after breaking through last year.

He will join the Dallas Cowboys' training camp and the players will see his journey as he hopes to build himself into an NFL celebrity.

In contrast, colt Cruise's story will focus more on off-site narratives, as he seeks another opportunity to prove himself in the NFL, while constantly striving to balance his ambition with real life to keep himself away from reality.

Organized in partnership with EA Sports and FIFA 18, each team will be represented by one gamer who will compete against the other team representatives for an opportunity to play for the eMLS league in the FIFA 18 Global Series Playoff and, ultimately, the FIFA eWorld Cup in 2018.

The EA Sports party is always one of the hottest tickets in town during Super Bowl week and this year is one of our best shows ever, said Randy Chase, senior marketing director at EA Sports, in a press release sent to GamesBeat.

This year has an amazing lineup of athletes and musical talent, and Club Nomadic is going to be one of the greatest venues we ve ever had.
