EA Sports Takes a RARE W by Announcing Ultimate FIFA Soundtrack

It seems like EA Sports are finally listening to their fans outcry’s and are bringing back nostalgic FIFA Soundtrack songs from the past 25 years of their FIFA games.

With the release of the games licensed Qatar 2022 World Cup game mode, it seems that you will be able to listen to songs from previous generations of games in an attempt to be hyped up for the fan favourite game mode.

For generations of FIFA players, the EA Soundtrack has been an integral feature of their games, licensing songs from well-reputed artists all over the globe including the late Avicii, Jack Harlow and MGMT to name a few, while also providing a laundry list of talented musicians who have found relative success after having songs featured in-game.

In the promotional video for the playlist there is plenty of star power including Canadian footballer Alphonso Davies and American Women’s Football star Samantha Kerr, as well as world renowned DJ Fatboy Slim with Youtube personality Andres FelipĂ© Barrientos, better known as “Yung Filly” online.

These songs can be manually turned on and off in the menus, and they have also been recently customizable as you can turn songs on or off at your choosing.

In collaboration with music streaming giant Spotify, EA has released a playlist of 100 songs on the platform, which it says is a, “Personalized playlist of tracks from FIFA ’98 to FIFA ’23”. You can find this playlist on Spotify under the name “EA Sports FIFA Mix”.

It should also be noted that this might be a fan of the long-running football simulation franchises last hurrah under the EA Sports FIFA series, as it was reported in mid-2022 that this current iteration of the popular franchise will be the last under the joint banner. EA Sports later released a promotional trailer, stating that they would continue in the football simulation landscape under the “EA Sports FC” banner while it is still unclear where the FIFA license will end up.

After years of glitchy and buggy gameplay, poor server quality and the rapid growth of their FIFA Ultimate Team game mode leading to more predatory micro-transactions, which have been largely aimed at children, it seems like EA Sports is trying to make up for some of their prior missteps by giving the longtime fans of the game a piece of nostalgia before both companies go through drastic changes in the future.

Whether or not the predatory tactics can be forgiven by adding in a minor detail for many people is up for debate (It’s defiantly not) but maybe this could be a small step in the right direction for a company who had lost most of it’s moral credibility until this point.
