However, it seems like this is now being replaced by 'Rulebreakers' - a brand new promo event.
Being the first major promotion of the year that introduces new, upgraded cards into the FUT ecosystem, Ultimate Scream is certainly one to keep your eyes on!
Last year's Ultimate Scream event saw huge upgrades for big names such as Ibrahimovic, Aguero, Muller, Rodriguez and many more.
We can also expect the usual objectives and SBCs to be added featuring special upgraded players.
So what's coming this year? Here's what we know.
New Promo Replacing Ultimate Scream? - 21st October
There appears to be a new FUT promo event coming this Friday, but it's unclear what it's about.
The event seems to start with an 'R' but it's unclear what it is.
What Is Ultimate Scream?
Ultimate Scream is a promotion that is filled with “supernatural boosts” to a number of fan favourite cards, boosting key stats to a level that wouldn’t be usually seen through regular performance-based upgrades.
Taking place around Halloween every year, Ultimate Scream delivers tonnes of new, high-level players into the FUT meta early on, and is, without doubt, a big promotion that you’ll have to keep your eyes on.
Over the course of the promotion, expect tonnes of content to be delivered, including:
- 2 Ultimate Scream Teams
- Ultimate Scream Player SBCs
- Ultimate Scream Objectives
- Halloween Themed Puzzle SBCs
- Promo Packs
Ultimate Scream Release Date
Ultimate Scream is arriving either this Friday 23rd October and lasting for 2 weeks.
Last year, Ultimate Scream commenced on Friday October 18th, however with the slightly later release of FIFA 21, we can expect to see this pushed back a little.
Ultimate Scream Teams
The main selling point of this promotion has to be the highly anticipated Ultimate Scream Team.
Over the course of the promotion, expect 2 squads of 11 to be released into packs, each for a week, containing a number of awesome players with big “supernatural upgrades.”
These upgrades tend to be massive in certain stats, with people getting big Pace and Physical boosts, as well as sizable boosts to technical stats such as shooting, passing, dribbling and defending.
As you can see from last years’ Ultimate Scream teams, we saw the likes of Aguero getting +8 Pace and Physical compared to his base card, making him one of the best cards in the game at the time, Ibrahimovic with a +29 Pace boost.
These are going to be some serious heavy hitters, just look at what we saw last year from the 2 Ultimate Scream Teams!
Here are our predictions for the Scream Team:
Ultimate Scream Player SBCs
In addition to the Ultimate Scream Teams, we can also expect a number of high calibre Ultimate Scream Player SBCs to be released throughout the promotion.
Last year saw us receive a tonne of Ultimate Scream Player SBC content, with the likes of Milner, Ozil, Jesus Navas and a highly sought after Pique item released.
These are definitely worth keeping an eye out for, as many of these cards remained in people’s teams for a good length of time thanks to their meta upgrades.
Halloween Themed SBCs
Another popular aspect of the Ultimate Scream promotion is the regular Halloween themed SBCs that are released, containing pack and Halloween themed cosmetic rewards, such as kits, badges, tifos, and for this year, stadium customisation items.
These SBCs are typically themed around clubs with badges that have a Halloween connotation, i.e. Wolves, or Manchester United for the devil etc, making for both interesting SBCs but profitable investment opportunities.
As is the way with any promotion in FUT that has highly sought after packable players, expect a lot of promo packs to be on offer in the store on a daily basis, and potentially even some lightning rounds for packs such as 50k Rare Players Packs, or even 100k Jumbo Rare Players Packs.
