FUT Online Seasons / FUT Online Draft - Guest Mode Enabled - PS4/XB1/PC

EA FIFA Team

Hello FIFA Fans,

 

We have heard your feedback about guest functionality in FUT Online Seasons and FUT Online Draft and are happy to announce that we have added this functionality back into FIFA 18 PS4/XB1/PC effective immediately.

 

We were able to enable the use of a guest in FUT Online Seasons and FUT Online Draft via a server update, but there are some on-screen elements, specifically in the match setup flow, that will need to be added via a title update in the future.

 

In the meantime, please follow these steps to add a guest in FUT Online Seasons and FUT Online Draft.

 

_____

 

PS4:

1. Initiate a search for opponent in FUT Online Seasons and FUT Online Draft as normal.

2. Once an opponent has been found, you will be taken to the below screen:

3. Make sure that you have a secondary controller turned on, and signed into an account.

4. Pressing the Triangle button on a secondary controller will add that controller as a guest.

A. This will not prompt any on-screen indication that a guest is present, this functionality will be added in a future title update.

B. Pressing Triangle again on the secondary controller will remove the guest, so make sure to only press it a single time. If you do press it a second time, make sure to press it again to re-add the guest.

5. Once that has been done, the primary controller can press the X button to set themselves as ready.

6. Once in gameplay, any added guests should be able to play as normal.

 

XB1:

1. Initiate a search for opponent in FUT Online Seasons and FUT Online Draft as normal.

2. Once an opponent has been found, you will be taken to the below screen:

A. This will not prompt any on-screen indication that a guest is present, this functionality will be added in a future title update.

When will the guest player be added to Online Seasons

★★★★ Novice

My firend and I were all ready to start new Fifa 18 and work our way up the Online Season league (which is harder 2 player by the way but our choice) and to my horror it has been removed. Please tell me when this will be added back as it's no longer worth playing and i won't be buying it again????? I have a lot of friends that agree and although we are only a few buyers I'm sure we are not the only that feel this way
