Friday, Electronic Arts launched FIFA 19 across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Fans can achieve glory with the UEFA Champions League across a variety of modes including the new Kick Off, which also features ‘House Rules’ and deeper stat tracking to heighten the competition among friends. In FIFA Ultimate Team, brand new ICONS join the roster, and an all new mode, Division Rivals, offers a new way to compete online. Additionally, the final chapter of the critically acclaimed story mode, The Journey: Champions, culminates with three playable storylines, each with their own distinct journey through an interconnected football story. Bleacher Report highlights that “this is definitely a FIFA to get excited about” and FourFourTwo says “FIFA 19 is a must-own”.
“This year the game has been elevated to a new level of authenticity with the deep integration of the UEFA Champions League,” said Aaron McHardy, Executive Producer for EA SPORTS FIFA. “We’ve also received really positive feedback on the new gameplay mechanics and addition of new modes in Kick Off from players who’ve experienced the game through hands on with the demo, EA Access, and Origin Access. We’re very excited for even more players from across the globe to jump into the world’s game.”
In The Journey: Champions, Alex Hunter returns to pursue UEFA Champions League glory with Real Madrid FC on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Players can choose between three distinct storylines from Alex Hunter, Danny Williams and Kim Hunter. After signing with Real Madrid FC, Alex is thrust into the spotlight to come to terms with balancing stardom and family. Danny continues his career in the Premier League, challenged with taking on a new role for his club. Meanwhile, Kim finishes her last year of high school and faces big decisions about her future and the pressure that comes with playing football at the highest level in the Women’s World Cup. The Journey: Champions original soundtrack, featuring Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer and composer Lorne Balfe, is also available now.
FIFA 19 also introduces new features on Nintendo Switch, delivering a champion-calibre experience on and off the pitch. From live content updates in FIFA 19 Ultimate Team, to an authentic Career Mode, and the all-new standalone UEFA Champions League Mode, players can enjoy a full FIFA experience wherever they play. FIFA 19 on Nintendo Switch also brings distinctive team and player personalities, official broadcast presentations for some of the world’s biggest leagues and elevates players’ ability to finish with the all-new striking overhaul.
