, we won’t be getting an overhaul, but there are some big changes coming along.In a Pitch Notes update today, EA Sports announced a series of changes to the offline mode, including more customisable managers (including the ability to play as a female manager), game impacting team talks, and changes to effects on players based on performance.
In a press release, EA highlighted five key changes:
- Customisable managers: Gender, body type, skin tone, clothing, and hairstyles can all be managed.
- Reactive morale and performance: Press conferences, squad rotation, one-to-one chats and more can directly affect players.
- Dynamic Player Potential: Players’ final OVR statistic will be affected by how well they play in matches – this is presumably most important for young players, who will be improved further with first team experience.
- Career highlights: The news feed will now display Live News Screenshots from your matches.
- Dynamic UI: The mode will use authentic branding from the Premier League, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, LaLiga Santander, MLS, and UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.
In a wider sense, the mode should feel a little more ‘alive’ than in previous games, with in-game journalists reacting differently to your performances based on “the outcome, goals scored, opponent, time of season or stage of competition, and more.”
You can read about many smaller changes to the mode in EA’s blog post.
FIFA 20, as you might expect, is making a lot of changes outside of Career mode, too. Aside from the new street football mode, Volta, we’ve also rounded up the the gameplay changes that will actually make a difference, and chronicled what’s being altered in FUT this year.
