EA Sports have taken to the pitch with a new FIFA 20 title update. Available now across all available platforms, you will need to download this latest FIFA 20 patch in order to access online features including multiplayer and FUT.
Update 1.24 doesn’t make any major changes to FIFA 20 with no new content or features added as part of this small download. Instead it makes the following quick fix to EA’s annualised footie sequel:
“Removed TOTW and FUT Champions Bronze Player Item rarities from displaying on the Special Quality Filter as these items are not present in-game.”
FIFA 20 scored an 8/10 in our review, Aran writing:
FIFA 20 is pretty much what you’d expect from a new FIFA game. FIFA Ultimate Team continues to march on and grow, card packs and all, while the core gameplay has been tweaked, making attacking play feel great as you rip defences apart. The big new feature is Volta Football, and while it’s a fun distraction, it’s not quite as engaging as its FIFA Street predecessors.
With FIFA 21 having been announced with a release date of October 9th, support for last year’s instalment is slowly winding down as EA refocus their efforts. Of course they will continue to support FIFA 20 with future updates, fixes, and ongoing online support though the team is no doubt knuckling down for the cross-gen release of FIFA 21.
This year’s entry will be aiming for an entire spread of platforms including PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam and Origin) with a FIFA 21 Legacy Edition coming to the Nintendo Switch. The world-beating football franchise is also set to make its Google Stadia debut, too.
However, more importantly, FIFA 21 will be coming to next generation systems – namely the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Those wanting the game on PS5 or Microsoft’s upcoming console will be able to upgrade their current-gen digital versions at no additional cross, EA have confirmed. This promotion is available until the launch of FIFA 22, giving you plenty of time to make that jump.
You can catch the debut trailer for FIFA 21 above, Kylian Mbappé having recently been confirmed as this year’s cover star for the game.
