With FIFA 20 on the horizon, many of the series’ fans are wondering what sorts of new features will be included in the upcoming soccer game. EA has revealed several new details, most notably, the changes coming to FIFA 20’s Pro Clubs mode.
Pro Clubs is FIFA’s mode that allows you to create a virtual player to grow as you play online with friends. Now, in FIFA 20, EA says it will add greater customization options that will “bring new ways to design your Virtual Pro’s visual characteristics.” These customization options will apply to your in-game avatar.
But there are also gameplay related changes coming to the mode. EA says:
Stamina has also been reviewed, and we’ve tuned the values to create a risk vs. reward system–if you invest in stamina and pace, you will sacrifice other attributes for your pro. All players will start their Pro Clubs experience at an 80 overall rating. From here, progression is earned through drop in, league, and cup matches, with the remainder coming through player traits, which have also been revamped. We’ve introduced over 30 additional traits for FIFA 20 that, if paired together with specialty traits, will allow you to take customization to the next level. They offer increased benefits to your pro, but at an increased cost and a potential effect on other attributes.
FIFA 20 will see the inclusion of practice matches in Pro Clubs too, giving you a variety of choices in how you can improve at the game. Clubs can play “individually or as a team against varied AI difficulties, from beginner to legendary.”
Additional changes can be found below:
- ‘Any’ stamina bug: Stamina drained faster for the player controlling the ‘Any’ position
- CB in wall: The game now places taller forwards and midfielders in the wall to defend against Free Kicks
- GK set piece: Having a GK as captain will no longer affect game stability when your team has a set piece to take
- Club trophy celebration: Clubs can now watch the full Cup Celebration when you win
FIFA 20 will release for PS4 and elsewhere on September 27, 2019. We’re hoping FIFA 20 will finally see the introduction of cross-play, but that feature has not been confirmed as of yet.
