FIFA 20 release date, Volta street football and new gameplay changes revealed at E3 2019
Electronic Arts has lifted the lid on the next edition of its hugely popular FIFA football video game series at its EA Play livestream ahead of E3 2019. futcoins will release on 27 September 2019 and will feature a street soccer story mode called ‘Volta’, as well as coming with the usual slew of gameplay tweaks and changes.
The previous game, FIFA 19, was the UK’s top selling game for 2018 with over 2.5m copies sold. This beat out such gaming behemoths as Red Dead Redemption 2 and God of War and the series has sold over 100m copies over its lifetime. EA will be hoping for similar success for FIFA 20. Here is everything we know about the new game so far.
FIFA 20 will release on 27 September 2019 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. FIFA 20 will also release on Switch on the same day, but will be a ‘Legacy’ edition which comes with updated teams but will not feature the new Volta mode or gameplay updates.
As well as tweaks to its authentic football simulation, the headline addition to FIFA 20 is the Volta Football street soccer mode. Channeling the spirit of the dormant FIFA Street, Volta is matches of 3-to-5 players a side, of both men and women, competing in ‘futsal’ matches in tight cages and indoor arenas around the world.
From an underpass in Amsterdam, to a neighborhood cage in London, or a Tokyo rooftop, experience a new side of The World’s Game with VOLTA Football,” EA said on the game’s official website.
The new mode will be highly customisable as you kit out your created player in the mode, with a story mode to go alongside a career mode, complete with promotion and relegation and multiplayer.
The mode doesn’t look dissimilar to the ‘World of CHEL’ mode in EA’s own ice hockey game NHL 19. That mode is multiplayer based, with custom players competing in fast-paced pond hockey. Loot box-esque ‘kitbags’ are used to custom your own players in NHL and it will be interesting to see if FIFA 20 follows a similar path with Volta, particularly given the current scrutiny over loot box mechanics.want know more fut coins news Read More
