FUT Moments, the new single-player mode coming to FIFA 23 Ultimate Team this year, has been announced and the FUT 23 WebApp launches on September 21, so it’s time to dig into FUT Moments.
The FIFA Ultimate Team Moments mode aims to capitalize on the single-player element of FIFA Ultimate Team, by offering a short, bite-sized match experience that players can jump into and out of as needed while earning rewards in the process.
- What Is FUT Moments?
A brand-new single-player mode, FUT Moments, is being introduced in FUT 23 to provide players with a taste of what the game has to offer. Players have to complete objectives in a certain amount of time in order to earn FUT Stars in this mode.
- What are FUT Stars?
The FUT Moments game mode is the only way in which FUT Stars can be earned in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team. Depending on the reward level and difficulty of the scenario, you can earn up to three FUT Stars after completing a FUT Moments challenge for the first time.
As a bonus, you can earn FUT Stars for completing all FUT Moments within a Chapter. FUT Stars can be redeemed for a variety of rewards in the FUT Star Gallery.
- How do FUT Moments Work?
The FUT Moments feature a variety of Stories, often themed around FUT-related or real-world footballing events. Within each Story, you will find multiple Chapters, each with a selection of FUT Moments scenarios.
When you enter FUT Moments from the FUT menu, you will be asked to select a Story to start.
A FUT Moments Story can revolve around several different themes, including specific campaigns such as Ones To Watch, seasonal themes, or real-world footballing events.
In general, EA states that some Stories will be available throughout the FUT 23 while others may have limited availability, such as stories related to the FUT Campaign.
When you have selected a Story, you’ll be able to view the different Chapters you’ll have to complete.
Chapters are groups of FUT Moments scenarios, which you can play and earn rewards for individually.
A Story will always unlock one Chapter, however, some Chapters may be locked, like Rise of Mbappé, which means you’ll need to collect FUT Stars from the available Chapters to unlock them.
When you complete all FUT Moments within a Chapter, you’ll also receive a bonus group reward of FUT Stars, which can be redeemed for rewards.
Moments are the individual scenarios you’ll play within each Chapter and are comprised of several challenges, requirements & rewards.
When selecting a FUT Moment to complete, you’ll be presented with the following information.
- The Moment description & challenges to complete. Moments will have between 1 and 3 total challenges to complete within the specified time.
- The difficulty level. Selecting a higher difficulty level will grant you more stars, however, you’ll face more difficult Squad Requirements, time constraints & CPU AI difficulty.
- Squad Requirements. For certain FUT Moments themed around various events, players or promotions, you may be asked to use specific players, and numbers of players from certain nationalities or leagues, with chemistry requirements & maximum squad ratings, also included.
- Modifiers. These will outline the CPU AI opposition you’ll be facing in the Moment and can be altered depending on the difficulty.
- FUT Moments Gameplay
So you’ve selected the FUT Moment that you’ll be playing, lets run through how this new single-player experience will pan out in-game.
When loading into the FUT Moment challenge, you’ll start from a set point, be it a goal-kick or other set pieces, or in the middle of an attacking/defending scenario.
In the top right-hand corner of the screen, you’ll be able to view:
- The time remaining in the FUT Moment
- The challenges remaining
- Progress towards challenges with a checklist, and a check box when you’ve completed individual challenges.
It’s then up to you to complete the challenges in the specified time.
If you fail to complete the challenges within the specified time, you’re free to try again as many times as you like.
Once you’ve completed a FUT Moment, you can replay it at any time, however you can only earn the FUT Star reward once.
- FUT Star Gallery – How To Spend FUT Stars
So you’ve completed several FUT Moments, some Chapters, maybe even an entire Story, and obtained your FUT Stars, where do you go and spend them?
The FUT Star Gallery is the store where you’ll be able to exchange your FUT stars for a variety of rewards, some of which will be available all year round, some for just a limited time.
The Star Gallery is accessible in the menu above, on the left-hand side, identified by the FUT Moments themed pack design, the gold card image & the FUT Stars currency.
Within the FUT Stars Gallery, you may have different groups of rewards to choose from, that may be themed around some of the different FUT Moments campaigns that are currently active.
For example, in the Rise of Mbappe Story, a loan Kylian Mbappé is made available as he’s required in some of the Moments Objectives. It’s finally worth mentioning, that Player Contracts are not used in FUT Moments, meaning loans can be used without removing the total remaining games.
