FIFA 18 Ultimate Scream Guide

In this FIFA 18 Ultimate Scream guide we’ll detail what the special Halloween promotion is, how to get the Ultimate Scream cards, what bonuses the Ultimate Scream cards have, and when Ultimate Scream starts.

What is FIFA 18 Ultimate Scream?

All the players from the FIFA 18 Ultimate Scream promotion.

FIFA 18 Ultimate Scream is a special Halloween themed event for FIFA 18 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.

The players who are chosen to be part of the FIFA 18 Ultimate Scream squad generally come from those who have put in great real world performances or have suitable stats.

When Does FIFA 18 Ultimate Scream Start?

FIFA 18 Ultimate Scream starts on Friday, October 20 at 10am PDT/ 6PM BST. The event is set to end after Halloween.

How to get FIFA 18 Ultimate Scream Player Cards

FIFA 18 Ultimate Scream cards are released like any set of promotional cards. For the period they are available they replace the original cards in card packs. This means that if you you have the same chance of finding an Ultimate Scream card as you would any high quality player. Buy card packs and hope you’re lucky or head to the marketplace.

Should You Invest in FIFA 18 Ultimate Scream?

Once the FIFA 18 Ultimate Scream event finishes, usually after Halloween, the special 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.

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.

    I love to play FIFA 18 on my Playstation 4. It is very addictive game for me. The FIFA 18 Hack is the best choice for a FIFA player who is looking for lots of coins and gems. Anyways, thanks for posting this guide. It is very helpful.

    I don't know what game you are playing mate but there is no way any "stop and turn" works against the god like powers of the computer AI. In squad battles (or any online mode) any difficulty passed semi-pro is extremely hard this year.

    The game applies user sliders before each match and there is a noticeable difference immediately when you start the game. My players are much slower, they don't respond normally and the computer AI user stats are buffed to the point that any player rated beyond a 70 is a mini Pele on any team. The amount of blocked shots, intercepted passes and getting pushed off the ball by a 5'4 140lbs LW is ridiculous.

    In squad battles I lose to a barely rated 70 team with a 186 rated squad, how does that make sense? I've been playing FIfa for a very VERY long time and FIFA18 is by far the worst version ever. I'm on FUT looking at all the pack "promo's'" and that's what FIFA18 is really about, exploiting people for money.

    Instead of spending money on making a better game, EA would rather profit off people by exploiting them as much as possible. The game is shit and they know it. Everything from Squad Battles, online match making, flawed defenses, bad animations, glitches, lost server connections etc etc etc, the game in general is complete garbage. Everyone please play PES instead..... #FixFIFAEdited November 2017 by Pan1cShooter
