FIFA 20 major gameplay changes revealed for EA Sports Pro Clubs gamemode

Broadcast

We have worked on re-branding the mode for FIFA 20 to add to the immersion you feel when experiencing a Pro Clubs match. In FIFA 20, we’ve implemented broadcast features such as replay transition wipes, an on-screen watermark, club banners and a new Pro Clubs logo. The club banners are influenced and defined by a team’s primary and secondary colors, and show the name of the club in the stands. Stadiums that support banners will display both home and away club banners throughout the matches. 

We’ve also added AR (augmented reality) overlays to match intros, half time, and goal scores to enhance your broadcast match experience.

In addition to this, match types in Pro Clubs will now feature unique broadcast colors to distinguish the mode between Friendly, Cup, and League matches.

We’ve also changed how you’ll experience goal celebrations with your team. Once you score a goal, you’ll be able to celebrate with your entire team as the camera will not zoom on the goal scorer, but instead stay zoomed out so you can coordinate custom celebrations with your teammates. See below for an example we coordinated.

Match Types

We’re bringing two new ways to play Pro Clubs this year: House Rules Cups and Practice Match. 

House Rules Cups takes the popular House Rules from FIFA’s Kick-Off mode and brings them into Pro Clubs. Replacing the old cups, House Rules Cups will rotate a match type every day of the week, with a different cup playable each weekend. The schedule is visible in-game so you’ll never miss your favourite cup.

Practice Match allows for Clubs to practice individually or as a team against varied AI difficulties, from beginner to legendary. In addition to the available difficulties, you can set which tactics you want to play against (i.e. Possession based or High Pressure) and what overall rating you want your AI opponents to be, from 80 rated all the way to 99 overall rated players.

We know that this has been a highly-requested feature in Pro Clubs and consider this to be a valuable first step, as we look to the future of Pro Clubs.

Pro Clubs – Bugs and Issues

In addition to all the new Gameplay Features coming for FIFA 20 – which will all be present within Pro Clubs – the team has also focused on tackling some of the frustrating bugs within the mode to give you a better overall experience.

Some of the main ones that have been tackled in FIFA 20 Pro Clubs are as follows:

  • ‘Any’ Stamina Bug – Stamina drained faster for the player controlling the ‘Any’ position
  • CB in wall – The game now places taller forwards and midfielders in the wall to defend against Free Kicks
  • GK Set Piece – Having a GK as captain will no longer affect game stability when your team has a set piece to take
  • Club Trophy Celebration – Clubs can now watch the full Cup Celebration when you win
  • Another hot topic in the Pro Clubs community is Kit Clashing. This year we have added over 25 new customizable kits and over 150 crests to choose from. 
    Alongside these additions, we have also added a Pre-Match Kit Select for all Pro Club matches. Once a match is found, the team captains can pick what kits their team will see locally for the upcoming match. The kits displayed represent what both teams currently have selected as their default home and away kits. The Pre-Match kit selection will work with our kit clashing logic in unison to help deliver the best experience, free of kit clashing for players.

    A PARTING MESSAGE

    We hope you have enjoyed this preview of Pro Clubs in FIFA 20. We’ve had a great time working hard to develop new features and incorporate your feedback, and we are watching, listening to and reading all the feedback that comes our way. 

    – Munraj Hyare, Delaney Leatherdale, Gabriel Zaro and the FIFA Pro Clubs Dev Team
