FIFA 20 Ultimate Team: FUT Friendlies is new player hub

FIFA 20 Ultimate Team FUT Friendlies is a new hub to play FUT with your friends locally or online, as well as head to head online in traditional 11v11 gameplay, with or without House Rules.

Matches within FUT Friendlies do not consume contracts or fitness, or count towards your club record and they do not carry over injuries and red cards making them the perfect place to experiment with your new players.

The true fun in FUT Friendlies comes when you branch out into some custom House Rules. In FUT 20 select House Rules modes launched in FIFA 19 – and 4 new modes designed specifically for FIFA 20 – will be available for you to choose from.

Max Chemistry and Swaps will be two exclusive ways to play in Ultimate Team, while Mystery Ball and King of the Hill will be released in FUT, Pro Clubs & Kick Off – along with the already established Headers & Volleys, Survival, Long Range, No Rules, and Classic Match.

In Max Chemistry, EA SPORTS has taken the restrictions of team building away and added a full boost to players’ Chemistry, regardless of their position in the squad or their links. Each player will play at 10 chemistry and the team will have 100 team chemistry, allowing you to experiment with new squad combinations with the full power of chemistry styles.

Swaps brings a team building twist to the match. At the start of each game you’ll have 3 players randomly swapped from your squad with your opponent. Will you get your opponents best 3 and replace them with some of your bronze starters? Or will you just get to experience what it’s like to play with some different players you have never used before? As an additional benefit, if you manage to score on your friend with one of their players you’ll be awarded 2 points for that goal. Each match in Swaps will bring some fun opportunities to use your friends’ players against them.

Mystery Ball brings the element of surprise each time the ball leaves play as it comes in as a new mystery ball type. Each ball has a custom goal value that ranges from 1-3 goals and boosts the player in possession with over the top effects that take their Shooting, Dribbling, Passing, Sprint Speed, or the all powerful All Ball, which brings each of the other effects at the same time.

King of the Hill combines the power of dribbling in a control zone with a goal value meter making the focus of the game different than ever before. A control zone will spawn in the attacking zone which you will have to get the ball inside and then continue to control it as the space shrinks and your goal meter starts to fill. Balance your chances between retaining possession and pushing for a max goal value of 3, and then work your way up the pitch and try to score.

In FIFA 20 Ultimate Team FUT Friendlies you can build your own playlist by selecting a range of House Rules for your own custom playlist or select the exact type of match you want to play. These new ways to play, stats tracking. and the potential to combine with Season Objectives are sure to bring new fun and casual ways to play with your friends and opponents in FUT 20.

EA SPORTS FIFA 20 launches worldwide September 27 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
