In FIFA Mobile, EA Sports are celebrating Golden Week, the week-long celebration of different Japanese holidays, with a movie-inspired Program until May 8th.

Movie Themed Players, Packs, and Live Events

Over the course of Golden Week, there will be a series of movie-inspired Packs and Live Events. There are five different film genres featured, each with their own cast Feature Film Players to find or unlock. 

There are also a series of Feature Film Live Events where you can earn genre-specific Feature Film Posters and Ticket Stub Tokens to unlock Feature Film Player Items from their genre Plans.

The Feature Film Players EA Sports picked for Golden Week are not only popular in their home country, they are also well-known at their clubs and in the countries where they play.

There are five Showstopper Player Items to unlock, one from each of the five genres featured. You do this by adding their Feature Film Player Item and the two other two Feature Film Player Items. Additionally, you will need a set-number of Feature Film Posters and Ticket Stubs. As always, be sure to check in-game for the specific requirements for all Plans related to Golden Week. 

For the first five days of Golden Week, there will be a different Feature Film Live Event focused around a particular genre of cinema. Next will follow a Double Feature with two different Live Events available at the same time, then Triple Feature which will have the remaining three.

The event will close with a Movie Marathon, with all five Live Events playable. You can see the full schedule of when each Live Event is available in-game here:

Blockbuster Player

Over the course of Golden Week, EA Sports will track to see which of the five Showstopper Players is the most popular. Then on Saturday, EA will announce who that is and release a 99-OVR version of that Player to unlock. You will need all five Showstopper Player Items and a set-number of Other Tokens to unlock the 99-OVR Item.

In a few weeks’ time, EA Sports will be unveiling something new and exciting for Attack Mode in FIFA Mobile. While there are no details of what that is now, it will certainly change the way you experience the mode.

The length of the next Season of Attack Mode extended

To prepare for the new changes, EA Sports are extending the length of the next season of Attack Mode. This extension of a few days  will give everyone a bit more time to reach FIFA Champion, get a FIFA Champion Token and use it on one of the nine (9) available Player Plans.

The May Master Players will be the last Player rewards

With the new changes coming to Attack Mode, it also means new adjustments to the rewards that come with playing it.

If you’re still holding on to any Reward Tokens, the nine Player Plans (the four April, the four May, and 99-OVR Griezmann) are the last Plans that where you can use them. If you are a Token short, the May Season is your last chance to get what you need to unlock the player you want. Also, the four players featured for May will only need one (1) Token to unlock.
