FIFA 20 Ultimate Team New Features, Changes & Contents

FIFA 20 Battle Pass - FUT 20 Season Objectives, Season Rewards and Milestones

In the FIFA coins trading card mode, there will be a kind of Season Pass in the new part. With FUT 20, it will no longer be only day and week objectives, but also Season Objectives, Season Rewards and Milestones. EA Sports tries to keep FIFA gamblers in the game even longer.

However, a season does not extend - as one might expect at first - over a whole year, but only over several weeks. EA announces, the first season is from 19 September to the end of October. The Season Objectives are virtually an extension of the previously known weekly objectives with similar premiums as before.

In the FUT 20 Season Objectives, you can earn special cards, such as the illustrated OTW card from Jovic here. His rating of 80 is given here only by way of example and does not allow conclusions to be drawn regarding Jovic's rating for FIFA 20. Photo: EA Sports

Season Rewards

Also new are XP points that you collect by completing objectives. Once you've accumulated a certain number of these experience points, you'll reach a new level that will bring you new rewards, the so-called Season Rewards, which would contain FUT packs, special cards, and huge of FIFA 20 Coins.


Also newly introduced are the milestones that are not assigned to a fixed time window. These are therefore long-term goals that can not even be completed, for example, the achievement of 100 scores per headers, finesse shot, volley or chip shots. Rewards also await you when you reach a milestone.

FIFA 20 FUT Friendlies

At FIFA 20 Ultimate Team you can now gamble away. Because in the FUT friendly games your players will not be deducted fitness and the contracts play no role here. Injuries and place references also have no influence. So here you can try a lot.

You have the following possibilities with the "FUT-Friendlies":

Couch Play: Here you can play against the computer offline with up to four games with your Ultimate Team.

Online: Here you can play online with your team against a random opponent.

Play a Friend: In this mode you play online with your Ultimate team against a friend.

Your online matches against your buddies will now be captured in more detail. For example, you can see in which minute the fastest goal fell, that you scored against your buddy. This is the example of statistics that you can retrieve anytime:

FIFA 20 New House Rules

Also new: The house rules known from FIFA 19 will now be playable on Ultimate Team. There are also four completely new modes:

Max Chemistry: Team chemistry does not matter here. Each player has the full chemistry of 10, no matter what position you place him. Your team always has the full team chemistry of 100.

Swaps: Here's where it gets interesting! At game start, three random players from your team are exchanged for three random players from your opponent. If you manage to score with one of your opponent's players, it counts double. The "Max Chemistry" and "Swaps" modes are only playable in Ultimate Team mode.

Mystery Ball: This mode will be playable in FUT, Pro Clubs and Kickoff. Each time the ball leaves the game, a new ball with different characteristics comes on the court. Each ball has different effects on shooting, dribbling, passing and sprinting speed.

King of the Hill: How well can you dribble and shield the ball? These skills are needed in "King of the Hill" mode. You have to hold the ball within a given rectangle for a certain amount of time to refill a "goalmeter". The longer you hold the ball in the rectangle, the larger the number of goals (maximum three), which you get awarded in a subsequent goal.


FIFA 20 Squad Battles

With the Squad Battles you no longer have to wait until you can do a Team Update. Instead, you can do a maximum of ten updates, each time you get four new opponents to choose from. Overall, you can complete 40 games per week.

If you completed these 40 games, you can continue playing Squad Battles. However, these are then no longer counted for the weekly ranking, but can be used to complete tasks. In addition, the Team of the Week Challenge is now part of the Squad Battles.


FIFA 20 New Icons - Legend Cards

New legends need the game: Just a few weeks before the release of FIFA 20, EA Sports has announced several new icons cards for the popular FIFA Ultimate Team mode. It is now clear that there will be 15 new icons at FUT 20, six of which are already known:

Andrea Pirlo

Ronald Koeman

Others Updates on FIFA 20 Ultimate Team

You can now repel your Consumables collectively - so far, you've been forced to knock off each object one at a time.

The companion app is being improved. For example, at FUT 20, you can use the web app to customize your team tactics. Until now that was only possible in the game itself.


EA Sports introduced the gameplay changes a few weeks ago. FIFA 20 will be released on September 27, 2019. Depending on which edition you choose, you can start earlier.
