The much-anticipated FIFA 20 that has been in the public domain for some weeks did not come without its fair share of controversy. This was days after launch when many players started complaining of the messed up gameplay mechanics including the lack of proper AI defence that sort of got players to be quite exhausted in trying to attack and make sure all the defence areas are secured as well.
And if that wasn’t enough, the game’s career mode was later discovered to have its own kind of weird glitches. This included the fact that teams known for low ratings were usually found on the top positions in their respective leagues. Don’t even get us started on the case of players lifting “invisible” trophies. This got so bad that there was a whole hashtag meant to get EA Sports to fix the problems as soon as possible.
EA did promise to get to the issues but never promised that they would be immediately solved, which left players to handle it till today. But as much as many would expect this to be one of the things that break the game’s sales, FIFA 20 is still fairing on well.
And just a couple of weeks after launch, EA SPORTS™ FIFA continues to be the world’s most played sports game across the globe due to:
- FIFA 20 players have surpassed 450 million matches played, with 1.2 billion goals scored across all modes in the game.
- FIFA Ultimate Team sees more players than ever competing in the first three weeks since launch, with over 272 million FUT games played to date. In addition, more than 138 million games have been played in Division Rivals, with players racking up wins in the FUT Champions Weekend League to become FUT Champions Verified and cement their spot on the EA SPORTS FIFA 20 Global Series Rankings on The Road to The FIFA eWorld Cup™.
- VOLTA Football has claimed its spot as the second most popular mode in FIFA 20, with over 5 million avatars created to date and virtual matches played across courts around the world, with the top 5 locations being Berlin, Rome, Lagos, London and Cape Town.
To celebrate this, players who get into the game by October 17 will be rewarded with 8,000 VOLTA Coins to customize their avatar and express their style with newly available items in the latest VOLTA Drop. In addition, players can also participate in a new VOLTA Football Squad Building Challenge puzzle to earn in-game rewards.
