Things to know about new FIFA 20

It is that time of the year when new FIFA is about to be released, and excitement grows among players. We decided to bring you our experiences with Beta version through FIFA 20 review. Each year FIFA introduces some changes to improve gameplay and make the game more realistic. But, at the end of the day, it is us, players who give the final judgment whether the game improved.

This year developers decided to look upon its players and hear what they had to say about possible improvements. FIFA 20 brings us newly upgraded gameplay with much realistic movement and interactions. Alongside those upgrades, they added a few new features to spice up the whole thing. We know you are excited so without any more prolonging, these are the things to know about new FIFA 20.

Release date and consoles

As in the past few years, a new FIFA game will be released near the end of September, 27th to be exact. Those who pre-order are rewarded with early access to the game of September 19th. The game, as usual, will be available at PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The price of the Standard package is 60$, and the cost of the Champions edition is around 80$.

Tempo and upgraded defending

One of the things that changed a lot in comparison with FIFA 19 is the tempo of the game. Developers slow down the gameplay in order to make it more realistic. Although this is a significant change for the sports game, it’s not necessarily a bad one. This way it’s harder to get in possession of the ball and the accent is on the slow buildup of the attack rather than firing random passes.

With slowed rhythm comes an inevitable change to the player on player interactions. The pace of the game enhances the importance of one-on-one situations. Now, manually controlled defenders have more chance to stop the opponent than before. All segments of the game encourage manual controlling, which gives you more chance of success.

Pace and strength-deadly combination

The effect of slower tempo is that the pace of individual player comes to the fore. Players that are known for their speed like Ronaldo or Salah stand out with their pace in comparison to others. We liked this change, and we think it’s a big improvement as regards to FIFA 19 where the pace didn’t seem to have such an impact. This way game feels more like real-life football.

One more emphasized attribute is a strength. Also, a big difference-maker in football will now be an essential feature to look after. Tall and robust defenders are more likely to win duels and make clearances. This is the thing to have in mind when creating your player, the bigger the player, the stronger he will be. On the other hand, size usually comes at the cost of speed, so be careful.

The perfect balance of strength and pace is rear to find, but there are a couple of players with this deadly combination. While playing Beta, we found out that some players are particularly hard to defend against or pass through. For example, Virgil van Dijk struck us as almost impossible to go by, and Leroy Sane seemed impossible to stop.

Penalty and Free kicks reworked

One of the things in the spotlight every year is set pieces. Sometimes they don’t change much, and sometimes they feel totally different. FIFA 20 brings us new reworked free kicks and penalties. New set pieces offer more comfortable aiming with greater control of the spin. The result is more options with every free-kick and safer penalties, although it may take you some time to get used to it.

VOLTA Football

One of the things that made us especially happy during FIFA 20 review is VOLTA Football mode. If you are a hardcore fan of the game, you probably played FIFA Street of at least heard of it. Well, VOLTA is the rebirth of this game built in FIFA 20. We are sure that a lot of the players will be excited by this and we think it’s a great way to bring this game to a broader audience.

If you know about FIFA Street, you have a pretty good idea what the VOLTA is about. There are different options within the mode itself. You can choose between three, four, or five players per team. 3v3 and 4v4 are so-called rush modes with no goalkeepers while 5v5 is played by the rules of futsal. This is a great way to bring more diversity to the game.

Overall Experience

As the fans, we want to see the game improve and develop and that is precisely what we’re getting with FIFA 20. We think that developers made good changes to make the game more realistic and enjoyable. One of the big moments for us has been free-kicks for which we have only words of praise. They are a big part of the game and more spectacular than ever.

At the end of our FIFA 20 review, we would like to point out VOLTA Football as perhaps the best thing about this year’s FIFA. Some players maybe won’t like the changes in gameplay, but we think they genuinely lift the experience to another level. Football game never looked so real. All it is left is to wait for the September 27th and feel the game at its full potential.
