Sweet Street Kicks
A new feature named VOLTA Football is the highlight of FIFA 20. Literally translating to “return” in Portuguese, VOLTA Football means to go back to the days of old-school FIFA Street. FIFA 20 aims to feel more personal and down-to-earth while staying cool with the other new features it has. Using VOLTA, you can play 3v3 Rush (no goalies), 4v4, 4v4 Rush, 5v5, and Professional Futsal matches in indoor and outdoor matches in bespoke stadiums from around the world. Whether it’s at an underpass in Amsterdam, a neighborhood cage in London, or a rooftop in Tokyo, you’ll experience a new side of street football with VOLTA. It’s a great change of pace from the traditional 11v11 matches. Things get even cooler with the new options to customize your in-game avatar with some sweet gear. It doesn’t matter if you’re a guy or girl on the game—your avatar can have a wide range of clothing, hairstyles, tattoos, and in-game celebratory emotes. You can look fabulous while going through the different options under VOLTA Football, like the VOLTA Story Mode, the online matches of VOLTA League, making your own crew in VOLTA World, and watching your favorite teams play on the streets in VOLTA Kick-Off. FIFA 20’s pace is yours to set.
Since FIFA 20 now focuses on more intimate matches, the game places an emphasis on skill and independent play, rather than tactical or team-play. This new focus comes with new changes to football mechanics. The game now has “football intelligence”, in which the ball has been given better features: there are more time and space on the ball, a tweak to its physics, and more chances of one-ones with this. Players must now manually control the goalkeeper for better defense. Off-the-ball players will spread around the pitch in a more authentic way, too. The shooting, dribbling, and passing mechanics have been improved to be more realistic. There are new penalty kicks and free kicks. Even the Timed Finishing feature in FIFA 19 has been revamped and its window of opportunity is faster, so as not to abuse its high-risk reward. All in all, these improvements lead to a better experience when playing the new VOLTA Football feature in FIFA 20.
Pass the Ball Now
FIFA 20’s shift to smaller settings and the focus on more realistic physics talks of the dynamic move leads to much more fulfilling football matches that you can play with anybody around the world. The improvements are small but very much monumental in gameplay. FIFA 20 will appeal to any football fan that wants to try moving away from the big leagues every now and then.
