Today at EA Play EA announced the first details of the next progression in the FIFA franchise FIFA 19.

Along with the Champions League and Europa League fans will have new modes to play throughout FIFA 19, with the Champions League being featured in its own mode, career mode and through Ultimate Team … Majorly exciting!

The Champions League

The Champions League will be front and centre of FIFA 19 and as executive producer Aaron McHardy explains it’s an addition many years in the making.

“This has been one of the most requested features from our players for over a decade, and for us the Champions League is so much more than a licence,” McHardy stated .

“We’ve been working really hard to integrate the experience across the game in FIFA 19 and I don’t say that lightly.

“We didn’t want to just bring in the licence teams so you can play with them in the right context, we really wanted to go over and beyond and add Champions League elements to every place we could in FIFA 19.

“It’s been a whole lot of work and it’s not just a coat of paint. It’s really integrating meaningful features around the Champions League. We moved a lot of dirt bringing it to life.”

This sounds majorly exciting as McHardy went on with more details …

“The feeling of going into a Champions League match is going to be different to that of going into a regular match,” McHardy explained.

“We’re building unique atmospheres and presentation elements that are going to immerse our players into these competitions.

“Things like broadcast elements…the match ball, the archway players walk under as they head to the pitch, the ad hoardings, the elements around the stadium. We’ve even changed the lighting for matches in the Champions League to be more representative of the pageantry you’re about to experience.”

… Goosebumps ….

“One of the most exciting pieces that truly provides a new experience for players is the new commentary talent in Derek Rae and Lee Dixon,” McHardy revealed.

“We’re bringing in new commentators who will feature across the game for all the UEFA experiences – another piece of the puzzle that really makes that experience feel new and different and immersive.”

Derek Rae was a well respected Scottish commentator who also does work for ESPN and BT Sport, while Lee Dixon aswell as being best known from playing for Arsenal is an ex Match of the Day pundit who now works for ITV and also does commentary for ESPN and NBC affiliates.

Not only will the Champions League have its very own tournament mode, it will also play a big part in Alex Hunter’s final chapter of the narrative-driven Journey.

After first being introduced to Hunter in FIFA 17, he is set to take to club football’s biggest stage in a sooner than expected farewell.

“We will also see the return of Alex Hunter this year in the third and final installment of our story driven trilogy which we’re calling The Journey: Champions,” McHardy said.

“While unfortunately I can’t talk too much about the Journey just yet, what I can confirm is you can expect to see a Champions League theme throughout the story this year.”

The licence will be integrated into the standard career mode, while also being utilised via Ultimate Team.

“For our core FIFA players, we’ll be adding live and authentic Champions League content to Ultimate Team,” he said.

The Champions League licence also sees FIFA secure the Europa League and Super Cup rights.

New Gameplay Features

Active Touch System:

This new system fundamentally changes the way you receive and strike the ball, enabling closer control, improved fluidity in movement, more creativity, and increased player personality.

First touch gets an overhaul with new tools such as the disguised touch, flick-up volleys, or even skill specific animations like the Neymar Trap, so that you can stay one touch ahead of your opponent and create scoring chances.

Dynamic Tactics:

The reimagined tactical system gives players the tools to set multiple tactical approaches, deeper pre-match customization, and new options for in-match adjustments. Each tactical approach combines formations, mentalities, and attacking and defensive play styles so that you can easily customize your play in any situation.

50/50 Battles:

User reactions and player attributes determine the outcome of loose ball duels across the pitch. Thanks to increased teammate intelligence and spatial awareness, every challenge matters in the fight for possession.
