With just over a month to go until the release of FIFA 17, new details are being unveiled thick and fast in order to build anticipation for the latest installment of the video game franchise. Today, EA Sports have gone all out with a deluge of unveilings, including first looks at new features and the ratings of the Manchester United team.

The new Frostbite gameplay engine is already looking like a significant improvement on recent editions, while squad building challenges will add a different dimension to the much loved Ultimate Team feature.

As for United's ratings, David De Gea's is possibly the most noticeable, with the Spanish stopper being bestowed a rating of 91 for the new game. New signings Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have been given 87, 87, 82 and 90, respectively.

It is believed more ratings will be released in the coming days and weeks as the 27th September release date for EA Sport's latest behemoth approaches ever closer.
