EA SPORTS have finally rolled out their FIFA 20 Update #12 across all platforms (PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One) and there’s a lot to unpack, so let’s run through the patch notes. 

The new update adds a brand new Copa Libertadores experience to the video game series, the first time in the franchise’s history, meaning that players can now celebrate the South American competition in-game.

However, there’s much more than that for FIFA players to dig through in the patch, which rolled out on March 3.

A big change to the way players press in FIFA 20 has been implemented in Update #12.

Official details for Update #12 was announced via the official EA SPORTS FIFA forum, confirming that the Overload Ball Side in-game tactic, which is used by many pro players and Weekend League competitors, will impact player stamina much more than it used to – as a result the patch.

Let’s take a look at the new trailer and full notes, which can be found below.

FIFA has released a new Player of the Month SBC for none other than Atletico Madrid Forward João Félix, and we’ve got all the information you need to unlock it quickly and cheaply.

Félix has been on an absolute tear through the Spanish top league and the Champion’s League in 2020, widely considered by pundits and fans to be the best player on Atletico Madrid. Based on that, it’s no surprise he locked up the POTM vote for November.

Below, we’ll take a look at the stats, along with what exactly you need to do to knock out, and the total price this card will set you back.

Félix’s POTM stats are a nice upgrade from his regular card, boasting 89s in both Dribbling and Shooting, making him a dangerous threat inside the box.

Pace and Passing also make it into the 80s as well, all adding up to a very nicely balanced forward card, perfect for Atletico Madrid fans, that can afford it, at least.
