FIFA 17 is getting in on the Halloween theme with an Ultimate Scream FUT event, launching today. From today, twenty three players (here’s the list) in the’Scream Team’will show up in FUT packs.

In addition, between 21 October and 7 November, FIFA 17 will be running some special FUT squad building challenges, “featuring unique themed rewards including an Ultimate Scream themed kit and several position change versions of select Ultimate Scream players.”
