Electronic Arts wants players to turn to the FIFA Ultimate Team in FIFA 21 and spend more time there, an employee leaked to the CBC.
One of the most popular game series of our time is undoubtedly FIFA. Apart from the offline modes of the game, as you know, there are also online modes. 10 of these modes can be accessed free of charge by buying the game, but extra purchases can be made within the game. Especially in FIFA Ultimate Team, there are a lot of players who spend money.
Recently, some Electronic Arts documents were leaked to the CBC by an employee. According to the leaked documents, EA wants players to spend more time and spend more money on FIFA Ultimate Team. Of course, this is not surprising, after all, companies do this kind of thing to make money. However, the leaked documents show that EA is very keen on this.
In the leaked documents, Electronic Arts stated that players will be playing FIFA 21 all summer, that FIFA Ultimate Team is the cornerstone for them, and that they are doing everything they can to direct players there.
In FIFA Ultimate Team, the part where money is spent, what we call loot box, is seen as gambling in many countries today, and in some countries, it is actively investigated whether there is gambling. However, EA has said many times that it does not think it is gambling.
