During the FUT Live, Electronic Arts revealed a few new FUT 18 features, including Squad Battles, Objectives and Champions Channel. Let’s know more about them.
New FUT 18 Features
Squad Battles, Objectives and Champions Channel
There are more ways to play FUT this year. EA Sports used the FUT Live to introduce to the fans Squad Battles, Objectives and the Champions Channel.
Compete and earn rewards in the all-new single player Squad Battles mode . Take on other squads from the FUT community, to earn rewards and move up the leaderboards. In the Featured Squad Battle, you can also challenge the squads of football players, pro FIFA players and celebrities to test your skills and build your team.
Squad battles is a new mode that EA are basically bringing to single players but it’s going to make single-player truly competitive. It’s a weekly competition in which you will be able to jump into squad battles and play against new opponents. Everyday there are four new squads, selected from real FUT community squads. You can see each one of these squads, the custom tactics, the formation and the chemistry.
Every week there will be a new featured squad battle. It can be a member from the community, a footballer or a celebrity.
This new game mode has the best rewards from all single player modes. Similar to FUT Champions, each win will net you a certain amount of points that will rank you in a rewards tier. The amount of points you receive per win will be determined by the difficulty you choose and the skill and chemistry level of the opposing squad.
Complete dynamic daily and weekly Objectives in-game or in the new companion app to earn great rewards in FUT 18. From squad management goals to dynamic in-match challenges, the harder the challenge, the better the reward you’ll receive.
If you remember Manager Tasks, a kind of intro, you are in a good way to understand Objectives. This new feature is all about getting rewards for the stuff you are doing in the game. The biggest difference is that Objectives is available all throughout the year.
There are always at least five daily objectives available. They are random for the whole community, so you are not gonna get the same ones as everyone else. It can be something about gameplay, squad building or transfer market.
The best rewards are assigned to the weekly objectives. These challenges, refreshed every week, are much more difficult and everyone gets the same weekly objectives.
Watch full match replays from the top players in the world competing in the weekend league. Control playback and cameras through matches of your favourite pro players to learn how they play and raise your game!
Champions Channel is a feature that basically lets you see some of the matches that are happening in Weekend League. You can see some of the top players that are playing and learn with them. As soon as the rounds finishes, fans are able to watch the highlights of a selection of the best matches, and also pause and play, change the camera, change play speed and hide the menu.
Below the controlled options, a timeline will appear featuring pitch graphics created exclusively for FUT Champions. This map will indicate when highlights, goals, and cards from the provided match occurred, allowing viewers to jump back and forth between the game’s best moments.
