FIFA 20 Volta Football allows players to compete in “playgrounds” across the world with custom avatars. A new trailer was just released to showcase the gameplay, and it’s pretty interesting to see all of the customisation options on offer for players.
Your chance to shine on the streets
Volta will feature 17 different playgrounds across the world, ranging from New York to Japan, with many ways to customise your squad. And you can now bring professional teams in the Volta Kick-Off game mode.
These playgrounds include:
Warehouse – As it turns out, you can play a 3v3 just about anywhere in the world, even in this abandoned warehouse.
London – The UK cage has a place in all of our hearts, with EA taking it back to where most professionals started.
Paris – Play in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower on this caged pitch, surrounded by a Parisian crowd.
Barcelona – The city’s historic fountains are captured next to the cage pitch.
Amsterdam – The Amsterdam underpass throws it back to old FIFA Street days with a gritty urban atmosphere.
Berlin – Play with mates on this modern indoor Futsal pitch, located in Germany’s capital.
Rome – Set in a rural part of the Italian capital, this earthy pitch is surrounded by houses celebrating local architecture.
Tokyo – Floodlights beam through the neon-filled skyline. It’ll be the arena we use most for sure.
Lagos – This floodlit pitch celebrates the simplicity of the beautiful game.
Cape Town – Play with friends on a grass pitch, featuring a detailed suburban backdrop on the the horn of Africa.
New York – Play out on the Hudson with NYC’s dramatic skyline on display in the background.
Buenos Aires - A large crowd of Argentine spectators surround this stunning Futsal pitch.
Miami - Who would have thought a basketball court could double as a 3v3 pitch? This is completed by stunning graffiti on the pitch
Rio de Janeiro - Returning from FIFA 18 The Journey, this iconic pitch is located in the heart of Rio's largest favela.
Mexico City - Mexico City features a dark, atmospheric indoor pitch surrounded by a cage.
Los Angeles - Another pitch returning from a previous FIFA. Journey mode players will remember having to face Thierry Henry, Alex Morgan and Rio Ferdinand on FIFA 19 in a 3v3 on Venice Beach.
Parking Lot - we've all done it haven't we? Make do with what you have by jumping into the car park and playing ball.

Rules and Customisation
There are simplified rules like no subs, cards, offsides or injuries. There are also multiple match types, including ‘Rush Keepers’ and ‘Street’ with keepers, as well as Futsal.
You can play with or without walls, and you can even choose between small, medium, and large pitches.
Small-sided matches have three-minute halves, with the timer only going down when the ball is in play. There are no free kicks in Volta, and Kick-ins are only allowed when there are no walls.
Accumulated Fouls is another system used in Futsal, with every sixth foul resulting in a penalty kick. Perhaps the strangest rule is that last-second goals count if ball goes into the net after the whistle, but the kick was taken before time ran out.
