A few days ago, we were able to chat with Samuel Rivera, director of playability at FIFA 20 and, during the talk, we asked about video arbitration or VAR, which is increasingly common in the leagues and world championships, but was not present in FIFA 19. Rivera ruled out the inclusion of the system in FIFA 20 and explained that the focus on the development of this year’s game is to improve mechanics.
” I confirm: the VAR does not It will be in FIFA 20. “Rivera said.” There were many things in terms of gameplay that we needed to have a more realistic experience, and we decided that the priority was to focus on improving the physics of the ball, the shots, the dribbling, the positioning of the players. All the fundamental things of football were a priority so that, when you play, it will be a fun and realistic experience. “Rivera added.

The native of Cuernavaca, Mexico explained that the VAR, in a game, would have a rather theatrical role , since the system always knows if there is a goal or not, if there is a foul or not; However, we note that a similar system exists in Madden NFL, where the game simulates the instant replay protocol. “I think that, at some point, it makes sense to be in FIFA, but for now we decided that it was a priority to focus on the fundamental things of how you play football in FIFA. “he concluded. When asked about it, last year, Matt Prio, creative director of FIFA 19, replied in a similar way.
It is worth mentioning that Football Manager, a much more administration and tactics-oriented series, including the Video Assistant Referee last year.
< As Rivera mentioned, FIFA 20 will make a good number of playable settings, including a tidier game bar with more spaces, more realistic physics of the game. its circulation on the grass, new mechanics of penalties and free throws, improvements in the defensive entrances and the touch of placement, just to mention a few. FIFA 20 will debut on September 27 and will include street football.
