FIFA 21 Ultimate Scream: Rulebreakers promotion start time & offers revealed
October 23, 2020
FIFA Ultimate Scream is set to return for another season in FIFA 21, but looks to have gotten a make-over from previous seasons.
FIFA Ultimate Scream has been a key part of FIFA Ultimate Team every year in October in the lead-up to Halloween.
It usually features players who get ‘scary’ upgrades, often receiving major boosts to pace or physical stats.
This year, EA Sports teased the promotion with a banner containing the letters “R—-R—–S” with members of the FIFA community claiming that it wwould be called “Resurrections” before EA confirmed the official title: Rulebreakers.
The FIFA Ultimate Scream will start on Friday, October 23 at 6pmBST (1pm ET) and last for at least a week.
In FIFA 20, the promotion ran for two weeks, with a different Ultimate Scream squad being released each week.
New Squad Building Challenges (SBCs) and Objectives will also be announced at 6pmon October 23 to tie in with the launch of the event.
It is expected there will be two separate squads for FIFA Ultimate Scream this season, with the first set of upgraded players launched on Friday, October 23.
EA Sports confirmed the promotion would be called ‘Rulebreakers’ and teased three cards on October 22.
The FIFA 21 Ones to Watch players were released in two separate squads and Ultimate Scream should mirror this approach.

Surprisingly, the complete set of Ones to Watch players was not released in a combined squad, which is a change from previous years.
It is unclear whether this will also be the case for FIFA Ultimate Scream, but EA Sports will reveal any announcements on their social media channels.
The majority of FIFA Ultimate Scream players will be available in packs sold on the store and then traded on the transfer market.
The players chosen for the FIFA Ultimate Scream squads will be only available through packs.
However, additional upgraded players will be released through Squad Building Challenges and weekly Objectives throughout the Halloween period.
