WATCH: The trailer for FIFA 17 is spine-tingling

FIFA 17 is being released on September 27 and, if this trailer is anything to go by, it is going to be a huge hit with football fans.

The clip shows their virtual footballer Alex Hunter playing for Manchester United and preparing for a match against Real Madrid.

The quality of the graphics is astonishing, with Premier League footballers such as Eden Hazard and Anthony Martial clearly recognisable, even when not wearing kit.

Video from EA SPORTS FIFA.

But it is the audio of the crowd cheering and chanting and the sensation of being at the centre of a pulsating stadium that really gives the viewer goosebumps.

And that’s all before a ball is kicked.

Less than a week to go - we cannot wait.

Check out all the details of the release here.
