How much internet data does FIFA 20 use

The online multiplayer modes in FIFA 20 let you play remotely with friends and meet new people in the game, but they use internet data, unlike offline modes. If you play FIFA 20 on fixed wireless internet or a mobile hotspot, you may need to keep an eye on your data use.

Let’s take a closer look at the data you use downloading, updating, and playing FIFA 20 on your PC, Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, or Google Stadia. If you want to play FIFA 20 without worrying about hitting your monthly data cap, switch to an unlimited 5G or 4G LTE connection.

How much data does it take to download FIFA 20?

Downloading FIFA 20 typically uses much more mobile data than updating or playing the game. Keep in mind that the file size is larger than the download size (which is compressed) and that the file size increases over time as developers release patches and updates for the game.

Console File size
Windows PC <50 GB
Playstation 4 41.51 GB
Xbox One 44.79 GB
Nintendo Switch 12.4 GB
Google Stadia TBA

There’s an easy way to avoid using a ton of data on the game download. If you’re afraid, your data plan won’t support the download, purchase the disk and install the game offline instead.

How much data does it take to update FIFA 20?

The FIFA 20 day one patch released April 2020 (FIFA 20 1.18) is less than 5 GB on PS4 and Xbox One. Stay up to date on recent patches on the FIFA 20 EA Pitch Notes. If you’re worried that an update will push you over your monthly data limit, turn off auto-updates in the game settings and manually install updates when you have data at the beginning of the month.

How much data does it take to play FIFA 20?

FIFA 20 usually uses about 30 MB of data per hour. The exact amount of data you use playing the game depends on the number of players in your game mode, whether you use voice chat, your frame rate, and the tick rate of the server you play on:

  • The more players in a game, the more data your internet network exchanges with other players’ networks. This data includes data like the score and location of each player. Multiplayer modes with more players use more data. For example, if you’re playing 2v2 in Kick-Off mode, you’ll use more data than if you play 1v1 in the same mode.
  • If you use voice chat, expect to use about three times as much data playing FIFA 20 – since voice chat can use up to 60 MB of data per hour of chat.
  • A higher frame rate refreshes the game more often, making it run faster. A lower frame rate saves you data but makes it harder for you to react quickly in the game. You can adjust your frame rate (measured in FPS) in your game settings. You’ll need to disable vertical synch (V-Synch) to change your frame rate.
  • The tick rate of your server also affects your data use. A 128-tick server, which refreshes the game 128 times every second, uses about twice as much data as a 64-tick server, which refreshes the game 64 times every second.
