Career Mode will have a new Create a Club experience, VOLTA FOOTBALL will feature ‘redesigned gameplay’ and the brand new FIFA Ultimate Team Heroes, which will have a unique league-specific chemistry tied to their specific hero moment, which is a green Club link yields to any player within the same league, as well as the usual national link.
