Five reasons to play Volta

Five reasons to play Volta

It’s a whole new way to enjoy FIFA: Due to the smaller arenas and heavier ball, it’s faster and more intense than traditional pro football, so high scores are common. No lingering on the ball – keep passing and moving! 

The walls add a new dimension: The presence of walls means the ball is always kept in play, but you can also use them for spectacular trick shots, smart passing moves, and even unique celebrations.  

You’ll see more action, even as a goalkeeper: Each side has a maximum of five players, so everyone is always in play. Even goalkeepers have license to leave the box, take on other players, and become a goalscoring hero.

Licensed teams can join in, too: If you’ve ever dreamed of pitting Real Madrid against Manchester City in a five-a-side match on a Tokyo rooftop, this is your moment. Head-to-heads just became even more intense. 

Men and women can play together: For the first time in video game football, squads can consist of both female and male players simultaneously, including any players you create. Your dream teams can become reality. 

3. Player AI is sharper than ever

Own the season with a team that adapts to how you play. FIFA 20 takes football intelligence to a new level, with AI that attempts to read your intentions, positioning players better to close down attacks, or create chances. Manual defending is also tweaked if you want greater control over your back line. 

4. Brand new options give you more control on the pitch

Leave your rivals in the grass with improved systems that enhance your team’s versatility, whether you’re forming a wily attack or shoring up a solid defence. 

Strafe dribbling

Become more dynamic and agile going forward, luring in defenders and blazing past them with a burst of speed or tricky skill. 

Composed finishing

Feel more clinical in front of goal in crucial one-on-ones.  

Set up touches

Take an extra touch with this special skill that makes shots and passes more accurate – with the risk of being dispossessed if you take too long.

Controlled tackling

Win back possession and increase your chances of keeping hold of the ball for a quick counter attack.

Set pieces can punish careless opponents

5. Set pieces can punish careless opponents

The new free kick and penalty system reduces unpredictable and inconsistent elements, offering improved aiming, power, spin, and timing. New star players’ run-ups and animations have been also added for that extra personal touch.

“We watched videos of Lionel Messi having this accuracy with the ball where he can spin it any way he wants.” 

- Shaun Pejic, Gameplay Producer

6. Skill moves are more accessible

In VOLTA FOOTBALL, simplified flick ups can now be performed by pressing R3, while holding L2 and R2 gives you access to some of the flashier moves in each player’s repertoire, depending on the direction they’re facing. If you’re more of a traditionalist, you can still use the right analog stick.

Not only can you perform some of the old favorites such as body feints, elasticos, and heel flicks, but new moves have also been added including a feint and exit, lateral heel to heel, and flair roulette.
