FIFA 20 Ultimate Scream players are hidden in packs right now, starting from the promotion's launch on October 18.
FUT gamers can get their hands on these players until November 1, when the promotion ends after Halloween.
Some of the players are available by completing objectives or Squad Building Challenges (SBCs). The upgraded Edin Dzeko can only be acquired by completing a collection of themed Weekly Objectives titled 'Scream Dzeko' which includes challenges like "Score a goal from a cross using a Serie A player in 4 separate Rivals matches."
The upgraded versions of Hulk, James Milner and Jesus Navas were only available through SBCs for a limited time. These cards are untradable, meaning they cannot be purchased on the transfer market once the SBCs expire.
With the latest release, all Ultimate Scream players will receive permanent upgrades which last throughout FUT 20, with each Scream Team player receiving a different combination of upgrades.
Ultimate Scream players found in packs are tradable, but ones acquired through SBCs or objectives cannot be bought or sold.
Users can also acquire them from the Transfer Market, which begins on October 18.
The first batch of Scream Team players will be lurking in packs starting from Ultimate Scream until October 25 and through Halloween.
A second team of players will be found in packs from October 25, while all the players have been added to packs from October 31 until the end of the event on November 3.
