Team success is the name of the game, with seven possibilities for player upgrades available
EA has announced a new FIFA 19 Ultimate Team campaign featuring the UEFA Champions League and Europa League.
For a limited time, Champions League and Europa League Dynamic Player Items will be available that upgrade based on the success of their teams in each competition.
Team success is the name of the game, with players getting an upgrade each time their team advances in either competition.
All Road to the Final live items start with an in-form upgrade at the beginning of the event.
From there, the player’s Road to the Final item will get an in-form upgrade each time their team advances through a round during either tournament, even if the player does not play in the match.
Upgrades are available for advancement through the group stage, the round of 16, the quarter-final, the semi-final, the final and for winning the final.
A maximum of seven upgrades for each player is available throughout the season.
Sergio Aguero, Antoine Griezmann, Gerard Pique, Alexis Sanchez and Ivan Perisic are among the 21 UEFA Champions League Dynamic Items that will be available in packs, for a limited time, while four Europa League items will be available through SBCs throughout the event.
Should a player’s team finish third in a Champions League group and be dropped to the Europa League knockouts, they will not be given +1 upgrade for advancing to the knockout rounds and the item will be changed to a UEFA Europa League Road to the Final item, though the player can still be upgraded by advancement from that stage of the Europa League.
No upgrades will be available for players once they are knocked out of the European competitions, so gamers will have a vested interest in the real-life success of their players in European competition.
These special items join the likes of Flashback Players, Icons, Ones to Watch and other special cards to help complete your squad as you look to truly build the ultimate team.
