The First Reveal Of Live FIFA 20 Gameplay Has Been Broadcast

The First Reveal Of Live FIFA 20 Gameplay Has Been Broadcast

EA Sports broadcast a first reveal of live FIFA 20 gameplay at the weekend, with a number of YouTuber's testing out the brand new game on Twitch.TV.

MattHDGamer and Calfreezy went head to head during the FIFAeWorldCup tournament, where 'MoAuba' was crowned the eventual champion, winning a life-changing USD 250,000.


The O2 Arena in London was the venue for this big occasion as Real Madrid went up against Champions League winners Liverpool.

YouTuber InceptionXx FIFA/Football gave his personal analysis of the gameplay mechanics.

EA SPORTS has so far confirmed a vast amount of changes to its gameplay, including a new set piece system, strafe dribbling and controlled tackling, among other things noted HERE.

The first live gameplay of FIFA 20 certainly divided opinion, including thoughts from MattHDGamer, who was playing with his beloved Liverpool in the above footage.


With the release of FIFA 20 now just around the corner, SPORTbible were afforded some hands-on time with the newest football game of the EA Sports franchise at a special preview event at a secret location in Berlin.

And already, with just a few hours of game-time under the belt, it's clear to see that EA have once again made several adjustments in order to switch things up from the previous edition of the game.

Here are just some of our key findings ahead of the official worldwide launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 27.

1. Slower game pace to cater for more build up

Immediately from your very first kick-off it's evident to see that FIFA 20 does feel different from FIFA 19 and a big part of that is the game being less hectic.

EA received feedback from players that the game was too crowded last year and one particular example clip shown by lead producer Sam Rivera in a presentation prompted him to utter the words, "That doesn't feel like football to me".

This year, there's a slower pace, new "football intelligence" and more of a focus on building up play as opposed to defence transitioning into attack in next-to-no time.

Not only does that help bring about authenticity and a more composed experience, it also favours those who are all about creating time and space with possession-based football.

2. Less AI involvement with defending

The presence of the AI in FIFA games, and specifically their inability to defend competently, is a massive source of frustration for players.

So thankfully this year EA are reducing the amount of AI defensive support and instead concentrating on the user's defending. AI will of course still be a thing, but it will take a backseat and place the majority of the responsibility on the shoulders of the actual player
