FIFA 20 will be getting the Copa Libertadores as part of a free update in March of next year, EA has announced.
For those who don’t know, the Copa Libertadores is the most prestigious club tournament in South American football, featuring over 40 teams from countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and more.
That means that the update will also add a whole host of new teams, and previously unlicensed teams will now be fully-licensed as part of the competition. These include all manner of famous teams such as Boca Juniors, River Plate, Corinthians, and Flamengo. The rivalry between Boca Juniors and River Plate is one of the fiercest in world football, and once this update lands you’ll be able to experience it in fully-licensed form as part of the most prestigious tournament in South America. Mouth-watering stuff.
A free update is always nice for players, so it’s good to see FIFA getting a big update to something other than Ultimate Team for once, if only they could sort something out for Career Mode and/or Pro Clubs. Interestingly, the update is only advertised for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, with absolutely no mention of the Nintendo Switch whatsoever. That’s another kick in the teeth for Nintendo Switch players, who already have to settle for a poorly-received, barebones version of FIFA 20.
FIFA 20’s Copa Libertadores update will land in March 2020.
