Gamescom 2016 is where most of the FIFA 17 news and details are unveiled. Because of that, we bring here a short updated guide with the details to access the live stream, the FIFA 17 announcements and videos.
Gamescom 2016 Overview
Gamescom 2016, which takes place between August 18 and August 21, is a trade fair for video games at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is organized by the Bundesverband Interaktive Unterhaltungssoftware (Federal Association of Interactive Entertainment Software). It is used by many video game developers to show off their upcoming games and game-related hardware.
Gamescom 2016 is the world’s largest games event with 275,000 visitors, more than 5,000 journalists and 557 exhibitors from 39 countries attending the show in its third year. It was first held August 19-23, 2009. There are areas for business, entertainment and professionals.
The conceptual fundaments of gamescom consist of an efficient and comfortable business area, an entertainment area for the ultimate gaming and fun experience and the gamescom festival in the centre of Cologne to attract new target groups. As the only event of its kind, gamescom links the entire value-added chain, from developers, publishers and the trade all the way down to consumers, while stimulating discussion forums at every level.
The entire games world will present itself to the public at gamescom, the leading B2B entertainment trade fair in Europe and beyond. In 2016, plenty of innovations in games software and important hardware news are expected, as well as hundreds of world, European or German premieres.

? FIFA 17 Rumours to Confirm in Gamescom 2016
We have an idea about what will be unveiled in the Gamescom 2016 FIFA 17 conference and we want to share it with you. Be aware that these details are not confirmed yet. At this moment, they are not more than FIFA 17 rumours.
New Chemistry System
We expect to see many changes to the way how chemistry works in FIFA Ultimate Team. This is something Electronic Arts have to do after the chemistry glitch discovered by the community this year. If they implement this, for the first time in FUT history you will be able to see exactly what chemistry boosts do to your player’s attributes. That’s something really important to the game reliability and which was implemented to the MUT this year.
New FUT Legends
Every year new FUT legends are announced in the Gamescom and this year it shouldn’t be different. According to the most recent FIFA Online 3 database update, these may be the new legends of FIFA 17: Oliver Kahn, Raúl Gonzalez, Rivaldo, David Trezeguet, Jaap Stam, Michael Ballack, Cafú, Materazzi and Véron.
eSports is a massive industry and it is growing a lot. Electronic Arts already showed to their investors that they are working to turn FIFA more attractive to this public. We do not know if they will announce these new features for FIFA 17, like the largely requested Spectator Mode, but that time is coming.
