FIFA 20 First Look at E3 2019: A lot more than just street soccer

  • Published: 09 June 2019
  • For the first time since 2012, street soccer is coming back to the FIFA franchise. Today, at E3 2019, EA Sports revealed a new mode called Volta that will bring small-sided play to FIFA 20, which takes a cue from the FIFA Street series that launched in 2005. While we saw a glimpse of street football in FIFA 18, as part of The Journey campaign, this year's game will feature a fully fledged mode. In Volta, you can create your own character and play in cages and futsal pitches all around the world, including London, Amsterdam and Tokyo. The teams will be made up of three-to-five players, which you can play with your custom character or professional players, and you'll have both story and league modes.

                      I made an amazing mistake last year buying FIFA full price. Will only be getting this for less than $20, if i ever do.

                          Please update Suarez, Messi, Rakitic, Cillessen and Malcolms face! Suarez hasn't looked like that since 2012, Rakitic hasn't had long hair since 2015, Cillessen is one of the top GK in the world but has no face? He's the first choice for NETHERLANDS. Messi's should be face scanned every year like Ronaldo they are the top two players in the world.

                                Why doesn’t fifa concentrate on making the actual game better instead of adding bollocks game modes

                                  They only work on new stuff 2 months a year. The rest of the time they maintain their own mess, fix bugs, prepare releases, patches, etc. Very difficult to add much in only 2 months of continuous work.

                                            They finally figured out the higher-ups will let them remake FIFA Street as long as there's a plan to make FIFA Street card packs later as well.

                                                      Lmao a guy that never played fifa more than a day of his life made this. how do I know? “ looks crazy real” and “ AI defending” says nothing about the mechanics... the accuracy of the aiming... the players targeting the ball.... jumping for headers. NONE

                                                              another disappointing FIFA production, they just give us what they cut out 10 years ago, but now they recycle it with better graphics and they expect us to buy FIFA?
                                                              sorry EA, this is not good enough for me to spend my money. I probably will have a higher satisfaction by blowing $80 on buying random movies in some vintage DVD shop, I might find a better movie than EA can make a good FIFA game.

This is why defending is so bad in both 18 and 19. EA got defending right in FIFA 17 when you got rewarded by reading the play. In FIFA 18 and 19 it doesn’t matter if you read the play, because it’s all about animations...
