As you know the rise of Fortnite over the last year or so has caused gaming giants CoD and FIFA to adapt to the new wave of gaming and business models. The most enticing factor of Fortnite is that it is free-to-play. Despite this, Epic Games made $2.4 billion in 2018. How is this possible – it’s free?

Well, the Fortnite Shop boasts a wide range of dances, skins and more that only add cosmetic value and no more. 

From recent leaks it is clear EA are following the same format as Epic Games, here is how FIFA 20 can regain some of its longevity through until FIFA 21.

Volta Shop

Similarly to Fortnite, FIFA 20 will have a tiered system of ‘gear’ ranging from Noble to Legendary. Each item costs Volta Coins just like V-Bucks in Fortnite. 

No doubt EA will have a micro transaction feature to allow you to add even more Volta Coins to buy the latest legendary gear, just like in FIFA Ultimate Team.

If you cannot afford the prices of the micro-transactions, EA have offered alternative challenges to unlock some gear available. Winning two games of Volta will unlock you a Noble Sleeveless Hoodie. 

Taunts
