EA Sports has revealed that FIFA 19’s The Journey mode has been expanded to include three characters, which can be switched between.
The company said: “In FIFA 19, fans can jump into the distinctive stories of all three heroes in The Journey: Champions, the story-driven mode that comes to a finale in this year’s game. Take Alex Hunter, Danny Williams, and Kim Hunter through their respective journeys as they reach some of the most significant moments of their careers. Additionally, as their stories intertwine and play out simultaneously, switch between all three characters at any time to change up your experience. Fans can also cross paths with some of the world’s most famous footballers, including Neymar Jr., Alex Morgan, Paulo Dybala, Kevin De Bruyne, and more.”
EA Sports has fleshed out detail of FIFA 19’s story mode, officially entitled The Journey: Champions: “In The Journey: Champions, Alex has finally secured his dream move: to Spanish footballing giants Real Madrid. Alex first met Danny Williams during the National Football Academy exit trials, where they didn’t really get along. The former rivals bonded as teammates while plying their trade in the second division and eventually become close friends. When Alex leaves for LA, Danny joins his old club to pick up the slack in Alex’s absence. After a brief scare midway through The Journey: Hunter Returns, Danny fights for his place at the club after a string of solid performances.”
And The Journey: Champions will introduce a female footballer: “Kim Hunter is a young American soccer player with dreams of playing at the highest level of the women’s game—and she’s also Alex’s half-sister. Alex and Kim meet for the first time after Alex joins the LA Galaxy at his father’s suggestion. Not long after, Kim gets her first cap for the United States Women’s National Team. Now she’s ready to take her career to the next level in The Journey: Champions with a call-up for the Women’s World Cup.”
FIFA 19 is due to be released on 28 September for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch. For further news, keep an eye on its website.
