FUT 15 Purple Hero IFS Now Available In Ultimate Team
You may have noticed that there’s a new colour in town and it’s being painted purple! EA Sports have officially released some brand new card items into FIFA 15 Ultimate Team and they’re hero items that represent players who have gone above and beyond for their club. Take a look of our brief description regarding these new cards below.
The Hero items will represent individual honours and moments such as:
This is all about a player’s heroic contribution during a very important match such as a league derby, winning promotion to a higher division, or saving their club from relegation to a lower division.
These types of purple items are players who’ve won an accolade such as young player of the year and the all-important player of the year awards. This includes all player of the year awards from each major league not just the PFA.
More players from other leagues will be released over due course and this doesn’t just apply to the English Premier league and football league but to all of the big players in Europe.
The first of these players will become available for the week running up until Monday, May 11th at 18:00 UK time.
Note though, after this first round of releases, all other new hero items will be available for 24 hours much like the MOTM in-forms.
Just like the MOTM and TOTW in-forms, a player’s purple card will be rated higher than his previous IF but below his potential TOTS and/or TOTY in-form. If a player who was going to be selected for the most consistent but never IF TOTS and they have been given a hero item, then they’ll still be getting a community card either way.
