FIFA 20 Ultimate Scream has arrived, and we're here to break down everything you need to know about the spooky Halloween event. Some may watch scary movies while others go to horrifying fright nights at theme parks. Me? I prefer to stay at home, Trick or Treaters resolutely ignored, grinding for horrifying FIFA 20 Ultimate Scream cards. Now there's FIFA 20 Future Stars (opens in new tab), so don't miss out on those promising talents.
The special FIFA Ultimate Team (opens in new tab) celebration was confirmed but now that the first players have been revealed by EA via Twitter—with more to come soon—we know some of the unique players we can add to our FUT setups.
Who are the 21 monstrous players ready to terrify defences and score absolute, well, screamers? Here's everything we know so far.
What is FIFA Ultimate Scream?
Ultimate Scream is an annual celebration of all things scary in football and If it's your first time venturing into the unsettling world of Halloween in FIFA, you may be wondering how it all works.
Essentially, EA release 21 Ultimate Scream cards in FIFA 20, all featuring players with various stat boosts. These increases aren't particularly drastic, but, rumour has it, these Scream cards come alive into "beasts" over Halloween to unleash terror on your opposition.
Additionally, there are some extra activities you can tackle, and this year is no exception. This time Edin Dzeko features in the themed Weekly Objective and James Milner, Jesus Navas, and Hulk present your Halloween special Squad Building Challenges. It's likely that there will be card pack promotions for players with money to burn, too. From there it's back to grinding if you're looking for a beastly new starting XI.
