FIFA 20 Revealed At EA Play, Confirms Return Of Street-Style Mode (VIDEO)
Another E3 is finally here, and EA is hitting the ground running with the first of the big presentations, with their livestreamed EA Play event. Their livestream started strong with the first look at gameplay from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and new details about Apex Legends and Battlefield V. EA is obviously well known for their massively popular sports games, especially the world-famous FIFA series. As expected, a new annual FIFA entry was confirmed for the EA Play livestream in the form of FIFA 20, but the highlighting of the new game included some unexpected surprises as well.
Just ahead of the EA Play presentation, a new trailer for the game was released on the official EA FIFA YouTube channel. The big focus of the trailer is FIFA 20’s Volta Football mode, which is a spiritual successor of sorts to the FIFA Street games of the past that have been long dormant. For players looking for a more urban-inspired soccer experience, this will provide a grittier time than the more polished recreation of professional-level soccer primarily centered in the games.
Volta mode will pit teams of five against each other in outdoor and indoor fields, and will allow for special tricks like bouncing the ball off of walls. You will also be able to customize your Volta player, including the ungodly option of playing soccer whilst wearing jeans.
The livestream also described some of the new technical updates that have been implemented with this new iteration, which were largely inspired by the requests of fans. One of these is Football Intelligence, which provides more dynamic and realistic behavior between the player, their teammates, the opposing players and even the ball itself.
FIFA 20 is set to launch on September 27th, but EA confirmed that there will be a series of deep-dive looks at specific features in the game throughout the months leading up to the big release. These Pitch Notes events will cover gameplay in Mid-July, Career Mode and Pro Clubs at the end of July, as well as Ultimate Teams and Volta Football in early August. Hopefully these new additions bring more FIFA fans into the fold and make them shout goal at the top of their lungs for all of their neighbors to hear.
