FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Winter Upgrades now available

If you have problems controlling your spending on FIFA 15 Ultimate Team packs, then the news of 134 upgraded ‘Winter Upgrade’ players may be concerning. EA has tinkered around with a bunch of players, giving a whole load of them new, improved cards.

Here’s the game’s twitter account announcing the availability of the Winter Upgrades.

Coincidentally, that means (in most circumstances) you need to re-collect those players if you want their improved versions. EA has put together an FAQ, and a list, of the various updated cards.

Non-IF (in-form) players at your club don’t get any upgrade. You’ll need to find/buy/whatever the updated version of their cards. If the new overall rating for a player puts his score equal or above his current IF card, the IF card will get a bump. If it doesn’t, the IF card will stay the same. According to the FAQ, “If you already own the in-form version of an upgraded player in your Club, your IF will be upgraded.”

Things are a bit more complicated for players, such as Harry Kane, who now have a gold card (where previously they only had silvers.) Where players have been upgraded across “quality tiers,” EA say “his lower-quality IF will not be upgraded.” Kane, therefore, still has a pair of silver IF cards that won’t be upgraded.

If you’re still confused (and I don’t really blame you,) stare at the FAQ a bit longer until it starts making sense.

Part one of the new Gold cards is above. Here’s part two, followed by the Silvers, Bronzes and the all-important IFs. Images can be enlarged with a click.
