EA Sports are well and truly on the offensive with regards to the launch of FIFA 17 and they have once again come up trumps with their latest teaser trailer.
One thing fans can never wait to discover is the updated ratings for new players. Whether they are going up or down, everyone wants to know how their favourite players have changed in the eyes of the game's developers over 12 months.
Of course, with some lucky people already playing the demo, some new ratings have started to leak on the Internet but on Monday night the first official confirmation of new ratings was offered, and in pretty creative fashion.
Stars from Tottenham Hotspur, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, PSG and Manchester United all star in the new video. Making up some of the biggest names in world football, Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, David Luiz and Marco Reus are asked to guess their new ratings and even their teammate's.
For instance, Dele Alli is asked to fill out Kane's key stats and he hilariously gifts him with a 30 rating for pace and a minus rating for defending. In exchange, Kane is only concerned with the receding hairline that appears on Alli's profile picture.
Dortmund star Reus also gives Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a call to tell him he is getting a zero for his defensive ability, which the striker is clearly not happy about, challenging Reus to a one-on-one in the in their next training session.
After the fun and games, things get serious. The actual cards for each of the players is revealed and the news of good for Manchester United fans.
Rashford is has a gold rating of 76 and a pace rating of 90. His teammate, Anthony Martial, moves up to 82 and has a pace rating of 91. Both are likely to be very popular when the game is released.
Take a look at the video below:
