Volta Tour

Volta Tour is an exciting new online mode where players will players will tour the world facing teams created by community.

Players will be able to compete in a range of different single player matches against squads which are generated from other members, and these games will take place in a range of different locations and played under a whole load of different formats.

Winning these matches are crucial. As after every victory, you will select a player from the oppositions side to join your team.

There is a chemistry aspect to the sides though, so make sure you choose these wisely.

Losing games will allow players the opportunity to recruit a member of your squad, however these players are copies of yours, so don’t worry, you will still be able to keep your prized possessions.

Although you can only recruit players one at a time. So once your quota is up, you’ll have some tough decisions to make as you choose which players to let go.

Another nice feature is the addition of street football legends. These can be earned by passing a unique challenge assigned to each player. Unfortunately, you will only be allowed to use one legend in your squad at any one time.

Each of these tournaments structures will each offer a range of match types.

  • 5 v 5

Volta League

Volta League is a game mode which has been modelled similarly to that of the current Online Seasons mode. 

Players can choose their game mode and home location as they battle to earn wins and make their way up the league. 

Whilst the ability to play with friends has been confirmed, EA haven’t confirmed how detailed the friends feature will be. 

We would love to see a friends league added, where a group of friends can compete in a league on Volta, rather than just a head-to-head as in past FIFAs.

What we are sure of though, is that Volta is one of the most exciting game modes which has been added in a long, long time.
