Two of the more popular Ultimate Team promotions will be releasing later this week, EA told us today.
To celebrate Halloween, EA's top two sports sims will be putting out themed cards featuring individual players.
Initially rather ordinary, these players will become monstrously powerful around Halloween, leading to some pretty crazy online games. Most will see their stats jump to 99 overall. In the past, some of have even grown to become gigantic.
Traditionally, this period is a great time to invest if you're playing Madden 18 Ultimate Team or FIFA 18 Ultimate Team. When the promotion starts, you can buy up Most Feared/Ultimate Scream players on the cheap when everyone is opening packs, then sell for big bucks when Halloween rolls around.
In addition, Madden 18's Most Feared promotion often brings with it crazy solo challenges. Here's a fun one from Madden 16:
That's some Breaking Madden stuff right there.
These promotions tend to inspire a bit of a feeding frenzy among the general populace, so it's best to get in as early as possible and buy the obviously broken cards as they appear in the Auction House.
Expect the promotions to launch on Thursday or Friday.
