FIFA 17 is coming out tomorrow for PC and Consoles, and you can download EA’s FIFA 17 Companion (Free) today to help you stay connected to your teams once the game comes out. The Companion is all about the Ultimate Team mode and allows you to use the transfer market at all times – great for being able to pick up a player right at the last minute – manage your squad and your club by changing formations and using your consumables as needed, and visit the store to buy packs, a good thing since FIFA shops tend to run many limited time specials. So as you can tell, these are all useful features for anyone planning on spending time on the Ultimate Team side of FIFA 17.
In addition to these features, FIFA 17 Companion is adding a new feature called Squad Building Challenges where you exchange players from your club by building unique squads that meet a challenge’s requirements. If you succeed, then you get rewards such as packs, coins, etc. The Companion will definitely be a useful app, but all this emphasis on Ultimate Team on mobile reminds me once more why we’ve ended up with a mobile FIFA game that’s all about Ultimate Team; that’s where all the money is.
