FIFA 18 Halloween

What is the FIFA 18 Halloween Promotion?

Halloween is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. Electronic Arts also celebrates the Halloween, creating the first themed promotion of the season.

During the FIFA 18 Halloween promotion, Electronic Arts releases several FUT pack offers, themed kits, Ultimate Team Scream cards and squad building challenges. This promotion is not one of the most popular but it is still important because it is the first one.

FIFA 18 Halloween Cards Rules

How the FIFA 18 Ultimate Team Scream Cards Work

FIFA 18 Halloween Guide


To promote the event, Electronic Arts introduced in FIFA 17 a brand new themed card. The Ultimate Team Scream cards are assigned to a selection of 23 players, chosen based on exceptional real world performances, records and FUT attributes, and released all at once in a single FUT squad.


Based on what happened last year, these are the official rules we expect to see this year:


FIFA 18 Scream cards become available in packs for a full week. During this period, they replace the corresponding regular not coloured cards. In other words, it is not possible to find a regular card of a Scream player during the Halloween event.

1.1. If you own the regular card of a scream player, your card will keep unchanged. If you want the new version, you will need to buy the corresponding version in the market or pull it from a pack in that week.
1.2. Your odds of pulling one of these Scream cards from a pack are exactly the same of pulling the day 1 card of that player in another time.


From 20 October to 27 October, 23 Ultimate Scream players will be released in packs with upgraded ratings as unique items. However, these upgrades will only be available during the Halloween period (29 October to 1 November). These temporary boosts come to an end on November 1st and their ratings revert back to match their initial release upgrade. After the Halloween period, the only difference between the Halloween cards and their respective original NIF cards is the colour and a small boost. However, the boost will be back at spooky times throughout the season.

2.1. When a Scream card is released it comes with a small boost, compared with the respective NIF card.
2.2. The ratings and attributes of FUT 18 Ultimate Scream cards are boosted up to ten points, compared with their regular cards.


If a player is upgraded, his Scream card will also be upgraded.

3.1. Usually, if an upgraded player’s new OVR rating equals or surpasses his existing first in-form’s rating, his special cards will get an upgrade. However, an exception is made to Ultimate Team Scream items. These cards are not take in consideration as special cards.


When Ultimate Scream items are boosted, they can be used in any SBC at their higher rating.

  1. Does anyone know how frequently the prime icon sbcs will be released? Im looking forward to them!

  2. Anyone know if doing all the halloween sbcs (werewolf, dracula etc) will amount to like a big reward after halloween? The rewards seem pretty bad so Im kinda expecting it

  3. Player prices seam to be dropping rapidly at the moment. Do you think they will keep dropping or will they go back up again after the weekend? Just wondering weather to sell now and buy the same players at a cheaper price or not?

    1. It’s not easy to know. I believe that the key here is not the Halloween promotion but TOTY. Many people are selling their cards because they believe that TOTY can come out next week. That’s why I think prices will be lower on Sunday night than they are today. However, as you know, nothing is guaranteed.

  4. I think there is no way for 0 La Liga player and only 1 from Ligue 1.
    EA makes events to get $ for packs, 0 players from main leagues means some part of players won’t buy extra packs to get these players.

    1. Yep it ain’t going to help my la liga squad in any way with this event sadly 🙁

      1. they could be but probably not: Zaza and Bakambu (cos they were IF), Aduriz (but he was last year) so maybe: Suarez or Oyarzabal?
