Obviously the Adidas Live Season data updates cost money, but you get one league free using the code on the back of your FIFA 09 manual (it’s surprising how many people don’t realise it’s there), so all you have to do is enter that code and activate your chosen free league.
Once you’ve done that you can download the updated squad file (and if you don’t like the features of Adidas Live Season they can all be turned off in the main options).
I will also provide the latest update for the latest team transfers and kits, offering the latest up to date squads including the transfer deadline deals.
For those who don’t have it and are not sure how to get it, here’s some information for you.
Firstly, it’s not classed as a title update, so you do not get a pop-up prompting you to download it when you start the game – you have to manually download it.
For Online Use To get the squad file for online use is as easy as pie; just start an online game (such as “Quick Ranked Match”), or create a new BAP session or something similar.
The servers will automatically check to see if you have the new squad file, and if not it will ask you to download the new one.
The stat boosts will be applied to some of the most consistently in-form players in real life.
FIFA 17 Winter Upgrades are likely to have a February release date, and as the Ultimate Team UK website predicts, will launch in four separate batches.
UPDATE: Today EA SPORTS has announced the beginning of their Ratings Refresh, starting with Premier League players.
Over the course of the next 10 days, the standout players from each of the major leagues will receive upgrades to their rating to reflect their real world mid-season performances.
The update includes a complete transformation of the look and feel of the previous versions of FIFA to look and taste like FIFA 17.
