For those with a valid EA Access subscription, the usual trial period of EA Sports’ latest FIFA outing has already been available for a little while. Today though marks the kicking off of the game proper with the Ultimate and Champions Editions of FIFA 20 bringing the latest title to life. The question is, will it have what it takes to over-throw Konami and their eFootball PES 2020 once again?
For many there is nothing better than a launch of the latest EA Sports FIFA title, with gamers around the globe clamouring to discover exactly what is new, what is improved, and what is the god damn same with the latest football experience. Well, FIFA 20 is now here to answer all those questions with the Champions Edition and Ultimate Edition of the game appealing to the most hardcore of players.
Whilst the Standard Edition of FIFA 20 isn’t due to hit home until the 27th September – and when it does you’ll be able to grab it for £59.99 – today is all about the big dogs, and the extra glories that they bring.
Taking to the pitch first of all is the FIFA 20 Champions Edition of the game. Priced up at £79.99, this gives full access to everything EA Sports have managed to cram into FIFA 20 from now, a cool three days earlier than the Standard launch. But to accompany it and really get you in the mood, you’ll also find a number of rather sexy Ultimate Team additions available, namely 12 Rare Gold Packs being delivered over the course of 12 weeks, a Loan of an Icon, the choice of 1 of 5 Loan Icon Items for five FUT matches and some Special Edition FUT Kits.
That’s not your only option in getting involved with FIFA 20 early though and the Ultimate Edition goes even further still. This comes with a £89.99 price tag attached but provides 24 Rare Gold Packs over the previously available 12, with all other bonuses equal to that of the Champions Edition.
Throw in the opportunity to spend extra cash as you see fit with numerous FIFA Points microtransactions – anything from 100 points for 71p right up to the 12000 points for £71.99, and the chance to grab the free Portuguese (Brazil) in-game commentary, and it’s a great day to be a FIFA fan and FIFA 20 player.
With things powered by the Frostbite engine, and FIFA 20 promising to bring all manner of new ideas to the pitch, including that of the street football styled EA Sports Volta, then if you’re in the market for a new football game, then this is probably the one you’ll want to pick up. As always our full review will be able to provide the ins and outs of what is good and bad about FIFA 20, and it’ll be coming to you in the days ahead. Make sure you keep an eye out for it but otherwise click the bold links above, get whisked to the magical Xbox Store, and grab your early access of FIFA 20 right now. Alternatively you’ll find the game on PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC as well as Xbox One.
See you on the pitch!
