FIFA 20 has used Troopz from Arsenal TV as an announcer in new Volta football mode after he declared his inclusion in the game.
Troopz known for his outspoken views and unique soundbites on Arsenal Fan TV after Gunners’ games, announced on his Twitter that he has provided audio for all the action that takes place in the London cage.
Initially, the person thought that someone was pranking on him when someone from EA Sports called him to give an offer for being an announcer until he realized that it was true.
It certainly came as a shock to Arsenal fans, who openly confessed that he delayed giving a response to the EA Sports for a month after he received the offer.
It is reported that the Troopz voice has been recorded in the Volta mode of the new edition of FIFA, and will be mostly heard in all the action in the London arena.
Fans have been clamouring for the return of FIFA Street for years now and while EA have listened, they’ve made sure that ‘Volta’ – which means “to return” in Portuguese – adds a new dimension to the game instead of being a nostalgia act.
Matt Prior, Creative Director for EA Sports, said there was “a whole world of football that EA haven’t tapped into”. With the designing of real-life street footballers in the game, Volta has come to life after two years of planning.
Based around the 11v11 game engine but with new people involved in the creation process, you can play 3v3, 4v4, 5v5 and play with or without goalkeepers.
Players can strut their stuff in an array of pitches (walls on or off) and locations, from a London cage to a Tokyo rooftop with a DJ and pyro, and choose from any team in the game – including a mixture of men and women.
There is an also story mode for VOLTA on FIFA 20 as well as an online league when the game is released worldwide on 24 September.
