January is a highly anticipated time for FIFA 15 players all across the globe. Start your countdown, because at the end of January EA will release the first of the FIFA 15 January upgrades. The developer will upgrade the players that they deem to be worthy of improvement, just like they do every year and following on from events that transpire in the real European Transfer window.
We have already seen one or two notable transfers happen in real life of course, but the main action will happen on the last day when the January transfer window closes on February 2, 2015 at 11pm UK time.
EA meanwhile has been sticking to a strict pattern each year. We can tell you that the developer should launch the first wave of FIFA 15 January transfer upgrades on January 30.
Of course, there will be some transfers that will happen on February 2, so that’s why EA will launch FIFA 15 transfer updates in various batches.
Although not guaranteed, the second wave of FIFA 15 January transfers could be going live in the game on February 7 – once EA has had enough time to transfer player databases according to whatever happens on February 2 in the real window.
How do upgrades work?
Basing our knowledge from previous years of FIFA, players who have impressed throughout the start of the season (since the release of the game) can potentially receive an upgrade. If a player receives an upgrade, his normal/non-inform version will remain in the game and from that point onwards his new upgraded version will be the version available in packs.(Players can be upgraded between qualities, i.e. bronze>silver & silver>gold.)
When will the upgrades be?
We’re expecting these upgrades to take place around late January/early February. Rest assured we’ll have all the details here as soon as they become available.
What about in-forms?
NIF = Non in-form
IF = First in-form
SIF = Second in-form
TIF = Third in-form
