At EA Play, Electronic Arts Inc. has announced an all new experience for EA SPORTS FIFA 20 called Volta Football. This mode is inspired by the small-sided style of football played in the streets, cages and futsal courts around the world, and it’s launching September 27th on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
VOLTA Football allows players to build their own character, expressing individual style and immerse themselves in a realistic street experience. This brand new style of gameplay puts players in the flow of street with new tools such as simplified flicks and skill moves, flair animations or using the wall as a teammate.
Aaron McHardy, Executive Producer of EA SPORTS FIFA said, “This year, we are embedding a whole new experience with VOLTA Football into the game that reflects how many footballers started out their careers in the streets. This is a unique aspect of the sport that gives our players an experience unlike anything they have ever seen before in EA SPORTS FIFA. We’ve also focused on delivering key gameplay updates that raise the level of realism and quality across the game. And with small sided football ingrained in FIFA 20, players can take the learnings from the streets and apply them to the stadium or vice versa.”
Football intelligence delivers a new approach to gameplay raising the quality bar in FIFA 20, increasing the authenticity of the experience on the virtual pitch. Authentic Game Flows puts emphasis on user-controlled play with AI having more awareness of time, space and position on the pitch. All new Composed Finishing overhauls the fundamentals of shooting giving players a more consistent and clinical finish, and Controlled Tackling utilises the Active Touch System to add a variety of new tackling animations. Ball Physics then adds a new level of realism from varied shot trajectories, realistic tackle interactions and physics driven behaviour.
Those that pre-order the EA SPORTS FIFA 20 Ultimate Edition for PS4, Xbox One and PC will get 3 days early access, a 5 game loan ICON player Pick (mid version), up to 24 Rare Gold Packs, and Special Edition FUT kits. Those who pre-order before 5th August will also get an untradeable FUT 20 Ones To Watch Player item. Check here for more details.
On September 19th those with EA Access and Origin Access Basic can play up to 10 hours as part of the Play First Trial or sign up to Origin Access Premier to get full access.
