The video game kings are marking All Hallows' Eve with a special, extra-spooky pack that promises big stats boosts throughout the season

Halloween is just around the corner, and EA Sports are getting in the spooky spirit with a special 'Ultimate Scream Team' for FIFA 18 players. 

The video games giant launched a new squad of 23 players on Friday ahead of the ghoulish holiday, with stars such as Arsenal's Mesut Ozil and Real Madrid's Karim Benzema receiving Halloween boosts. 

And while EA Sports will release more information about the promotion closer to October 31 itself, there are already a few hints regarding the bonuses players will enjoy. 

All 23 squad members will be available with upgraded ratings from October 20-29, and will receive further "scary" boosts on the days around All Hallows' Eve. 

And while ratings will return to their initial upgraded status by November 1, EA has promised more boost periods which will be confirmed later in the season. 

The cards are also tradeable, and can be used in both the FUT Champions and the Weekend League.
