FIFA 20 will be showcased alongside Madden NFL 20 and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, plus there will be updates on Apex Legends, Battlefield and The Sims.

Gamers that attend the EA Play event in LA will also be among the first to get to experience FIFA 20 in an upcoming demo that will be showcased.
This is likely to be the FIFA 20 demo which will be available to play later on this year.
According to a post by FIFPlay, the FIFA 20 demo is expected to have a wider release on September 12 2019.
As with previous FIFA demos, this should only be playable for those that have invested a significant amount of time in the FUT Ultimate Team mode.
This demo will be launched a few weeks ahead of the FIFA 20 release date which is expected to be towards the end of September.
Ahead of the official FIFA 20 unveiling EA has given fans an insight into features that will be coming with the new footie sim.
In recent pitch notes for FIFA 19 EA revealed a number of features which will be coming in the next iteration of the hugely popular series – FIFA 20.
EA said improvements to AI defending, 1v1 shooting consistency, timed finishing and volley crossing and shooting are coming to FIFA 20.
Chained skill moves, set-piece positioning, manual goalkeeper movement, passing and player switching will also be improved in the next FIFA game.
FIFA 20 will also include a new ’planned tackling’ system.
Here’s what EA had to say about it: “Planned Tackling is a new system that favours manual tackling by making sure that the defender that tries the tackle does so in a favourable context to your team (like recovering the ball or kicking the ball to a nearby teammate when tackling, for example).”
