Yesterday, EA has finally unveiled the changes coming to career mode in FIFA 20. One of the most intriguing details of these changes is the option to create a female avatar. Similar to male, players will be able to create their own unique manager and select body type, skin color, clothing, hairstyle, and accessories.
While the gameplay aspect won’t be any different compared to the male version of career mode it’s a welcome addition to the FIFA 20 “firsts” list. Including female football players and managers into the game is without a doubt a step in the right direction. In FIFA 16, EA has introduced female national teams. Even though we still lack female clubs or players in FIFA Ultimate Team, players of the game will also be able to create mixed teams in a new FIFA 20 Volta mode. Baby steps, right?
As for other Career Mode changes, there are a lot of gameplay improvements. With FIFA 20, our managers will be able to attend pre-match and post-match press conferences and engage in dynamic interviews with a journalist asking a bunch of questions. The questions will depend on “the outcome of the match, goals scored, opponent, time of season or stage of the competition, and more.”
Similar to interviews with journalists, managers will also be able to engage in conversations with players. You will have to deal with a variety of requests from players, navigate through possible negative situations and so on. According to EA, these interviews and talks will impact player morale which will also get a revamp in FIFA 20. High morale boosts players’ attributes, so picking the right answers might affect the outcome of the particular game or even the entire season.
