EA has shared some new details regarding FIFA 20. The new Career Mode of the game will have features such as press conferences and player conversations in order to make the game more realistic and immersive. EA mentioned that it wanted FIFA 20 to have some noticeable changes and that is one of the reasons why new features have been added to the career mode.
EA mentioned that it has listened to the feedback that fans have provided and that it is looking forward to adding features that are new to FIFA 20. EA is looking to add highly relevant features that would represent an important step forward for Career Mode, and especially Manager Career. Here is what the company had to say about the new features in manager career mode:
Our vision was to breathe new life into the Manager Career experience by leveraging the huge amounts of data that playing this mode generates, and build a variation of ever-changing stories that would surface to our players through Pre and Post-Match Press Conferences and Player Conversations.
EA mentioned that the press conferences and player interactions in FIFA 20 are not scripted. They depend on the progression of the player. That is very interesting indeed but we have heard similar stuff from game developers in the past. We will be able to learn about this once the game is out and we can check it out for ourselves.
EA claims that journalists will treat conferences differently depending on the outcome of each match. Factors like outcome, goals scored, opponent, time of the season, and competition will have an impact on the press conferences. This might get old after a few seasons but it will be interesting to see how EA plans to keep this new mechanic fresh. Will it evolve over time or will it remain the same? That is something that we will have to wait and see.
In the same way as with Press Conferences, the newly added conversations enjoy the same level of complexity. The manager will have to deal with a variety of requests from players as well as happy or disgruntled players that are trying to get their thoughts across. The manager will have to find ways, either through direct actions or by communicating his/her stance in order to mitigate and solve these situations.
Again, this sounds great in theory but it could just be a marketing gimmick that gets old a repetitive once you have played a couple of seasons. We will let you know more about these features once the game is out so stay tuned for more updates regarding press conferences in FIFA 20.
The gameplay demo was revealed a while back and it did not seem all that different compared to the older titles. Let us know what you think about FIFA 20 and whether or not you are interested in playing the game.
