With Pro Evolution Soccer relinquishing the license for the UEFA Champions League, EA have snapped it up for FIFA 19, making it a focal point of their first trailer and it appears that it’ll be a huge part of the game in many ways. A trio of pre-order options have also been made available to get your purchase locked in to receive a variety of bonuses.
The UEFA Champions League is the pinnacle of club football, where only the best compete to try and achieve their goals, with those triumphant few becoming legends of the sport. In FIFA 19, the UEFA Champions League will have its own standalone tournament mode to re-enact proceedings from the group stage through to the final held at Atletico Madrid’s home, the Wanda Metropolitano. The Europa League and Super Cup are set to be infused into the game, with brand new commentary from Derek Rae and Lee Dixon.
The prestigious competitions will be integrated into other modes too, such as Career mode and Kick Off, whilst Alex Hunter’s next chapter is titled The Journey: Champions. All we know in that regard is that he’ll be stepping onto the grand stage of the Champions League and concluding the dramatic story in style. FIFA 19 Ultimate Team incorporates content updates related to the UEFA Champions League and Europa League too – EA are certainly going ‘all in’ with their new licenses!
FIFA 19 releases on 28th September for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC, with multiple pre-order options already present. Ordering the Standard Edition for £59.99 provides five weekly Jumbo Premium Gold Packs for FUT, Cristiano Ronaldo FUT Loan for seven matches and Special Edition FUT Kits designed by the FIFA soundtrack artists.
