FIFA Street hasn't been seen since 2012, but EA is bringing it back for FIFA 20 with the brand new Volta Football mode. This is FIFA Street as you remember it: 3v3, 4v4, or 5v5, each with different modes like Rush Football (no goalkeepers) and professional futsal. Volta Football is coming as part of FIFA 20 rather than a separate game, so read on for absolutely everything we know about Volta Football, AKA FIFA Street reincarnated.
In an exclusive GamesRadar interview with EA Canada about this new mode, executive producer Aaron McHardy described Volta Football as "grander, better, faster, stronger, and, perhaps most importantly, realer." This is the angle EA is going for with this new mode; you can play in small pitches around the world, from a Tokyo rooftop to an Amsterdam underpass. It was built with the normal match engine as a starting point, then tweaked to make it more suitable to the scaled-down environments.
FIFA 20 Volta Football modes
Volta Football doesn't seem to be simply tacked on to the main game. There's an exclusive Volta story mode, an online Volta league that will most likely work similarly to Division Rivals, and you can even play as a pro team in the kick-off mode. You can create your own pro prior to starting in Volta, and they can be male or female with customized clothing, hairstyle, tattoos, emotes… the list goes on. It's also the first time ever that men and women will be able to play together on the pitch in FIFA, which is a groundbreaking moment for the sport as a whole.
Fans of the series have long been crying out for FIFA Street to return to the franchise and it seems like EA is genuinely listening. Volta is Portuguese for "return", which tells you all you need to know: FIFA Street is back, and it's being done properly. Just please don't try to introduce Volta Ultimate Team, EA… you've already taken too much of my money!
