Volta footballOne of the biggest talking points about FIFA 20 is the reintroduction of street-style football with Volta football. Imagine passing the ball to yourself with a rebound from the wall, and then hitting it for a goal. There are no substitutions, offsides, injuries, yellow or red cards, or even fatigue/stamina - this is football at its most accessible, fun and free-flowing version.
1vs1Some of the most exciting moments in a football match occur during direct confrontations between players on the field. EA Sports has recognised this with a significant overhaul of the FIFA 20 game engine to make 1vs1 encounters much more realistic and dynamic. Features like the new strafe system, Agile Jockey system and controlled tackling are the benefits you get here.
Decisive momentsTo improve responsiveness in the game, FIFA 20 allows players to change their button input until the very last moment during the game. The Active Touch system has been incorporated in the ball control system as well. It improves initial control and allows for more fluidic follow up actions. Set Up Touch allows for more precise control over shots.
Ball physicsThe ball physics in FIFA 20 have been reworked to match that of actual footballs – down to the bounces, spins and trajectories. Even pitch wear and tear shall impact the ball’s trajectories. There are a lot of interesting shots available, each of which affects the outcome.
Set piecesOne of the major issues with FIFA has been the inconsistency in taking freekicks and corner kicks. This time, EA Sports has reworked this aspect of the game to work better. A reticule shows you where your shot is aimed at, also there are icons to show the spin.
Other improvementsFrom permeable referees to pass block assistance, and tons of new content in the form of new celebrations, kick-off emotions and better player actions – all contribute to making this the best version of your favourite football game ever.
