As you might expect, your Volta avatar isn't as good as you create them, but you can help them get better by trying different skill challenges and playing different tournaments. Not only do you earn skill attributes by playing well and winning street matches, but you also get Volta points that you can spend on clothes, accessories, and shoes to make your player look more relaxed.

The Volta World League, in turn, is an extension of the Volta History. League is a place where you can play Volta Football against friends and other people online, while World allows you to explore different places in the game and play matches there – though you will need to unlock the pitch in story mode before you can do play in some. Every place in this virtual tour has a unique court with different types of matches, so you can play 3v3 (no goalkeepers), 4v4, 5v5 or even professional football (indoors) depending on the city you choose. It's great because playing in New York, Mexico City, London or any of the other cities in the Volta feels different.

The changes extend to classic gameplay, where EA tried to make the game more realistic with tweaks that mimic real players and matches. For example, with a completed and controlled grip, shooting and protection is so much better that it won't take long for fans of FIFA to notice. Combined finishing makes it harder to hit, especially in situations like bursts, and Controlled Tackling makes it so that when you play as a quarterback, you have to set the time exactly if you want to keep control of the ball.
EA says that it wanted these new animations to make the FIFA 20 feel like a "true to life" experience, and it has been shown throughout the game.
