What is FIFA 19 Ultimate Scream?
FIFA 19 Ultimate Scream is a special Halloween themed event for FIFA 19 Ultimate Team. Over the Halloween period a special squad of new player cards will be released, each having an in-form boost over the original cards. What’s more, the cards will increase their stats significantly for three or four days near Halloween. These boosts can be as much as 10 points, making for hugely impressive players. There's also a brand new shapeshifting system this year, just to spice things up a little. As a standard, the FIFA 19 Halloween Cards get a +1 to their overall rating, as well as a boost to two of their stats to 90.
The players who are chosen to be part of the FIFA 19 Ultimate Scream squad generally come from those who have put in brilliant performances in the real world of football or have suitable stats.
When Does FIFA 19 Ultimate Scream Start?
FIFA 19 Ultimate Scream starts on Friday, October 19 at 10am PDT/ 6PM BST. The event is set to end after Halloween.

Should You Invest in FIFA 19 Ultimate Scream?
Once the FIFA 19 Ultimate Scream event finishes, usually after Halloween (so the start of November), the special Ultimate Scream promotional cards will be removed from card packs, meaning you’ll only be able to buy them from sellers on the marketplace. Although the player stats won’t be as amazing as they were over Halloween, these cards will still fetch a lot due to collectible value.
FIFA 19 Halloween SBCs
One of ways that you can earn the Scream Team Players is via SBCs. A few FIFA 19 Halloween SBCs have been added, requiring you to build specific decks of players. You'll get rewards for completing each one, so they're definitely worth looking into.
If you choose to do so, immediately sell Scream Team cards as you get them as they likely won't go up in value after the event is over. Keep in mind that EA says the Scream boosted stats will reappear during "scary times", though it's unclear exactly what that means.
