The FIFA franchise remains one of the most popular video game series in the world, and EA is hard at work on a new version of the popular game. The publisher released fresh information about FIFA 20 during its EA Play conference at E3 2019.
The first entry in the popular FIFA series was published in 1993, and the game became a quick hit among football lovers. The latest title is developed by EA Vancouver, and it seems that the studio has put some serious effort into the development process, to provide an excellent experience before the next generation of consoles hit the shelves.
FIFA 20 Release Date
EA has confirmed that the title will be released on September 27th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Dedicated versions will be released for mobile platforms and the Nintendo Switch. Since the dawn of a new generation of consoles might be upon us, some sources speculate that the game will also launch for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett, but that remains to be seen.
The date isn’t a surprise since EA has released FIFA games in September for over a decade. Those who have an EA Access subscription will be able to play the game on September 19th.
FIFA 20 Introduces Volta Football
Many fans of the series will remember the popular indoor football modes offered during the PS1 era or the Futsal matches present in the FIFA Street series. The new Volta Football mode will allow players to play in 3v3 Rush (with no goalkeepers), 4v4 rush, 5v5, and Professional Futsal in both indoor and outdoor matches.
A Wealth of Content
FIFA 20 players will enjoy a massive campaign mode, online leagues, squads, and customizable player avatars. The only downside is that these features are tied to the main platforms and are not available in the case of legacy editions.
FIFA 20 will also come with a few refreshed mechanics, including new dynamics for shooting, passing, and free kicks. A demo may surface in the future, and the game promises to be the greatest release in the franchise.
