In a matter of weeks, Europe's biggest soccer competition, UEFA Champions League ended its partnership with Konami and jumped to its bitter Rival, EA Sports to add the competition to its FIFA franchise. Recently, EA has confirmed that new Champions League mode will be released in September and it believes that the addition of Champions League will undoubtedly give FIFA 19 more depth, especially in its "The Journey" story mode.
In addition to that, EA has also decided to feature Paris Saint-Germain star, Neymar Jr. with Cristiano Ronaldo on the front cover of FIFA 19 for the game's Champions and Ultimate editions. All-time top scorer of UCL, the Real Madrid star was the cover model for FIFA 18 and will continue to be the solo star for the standard edition of FIFA 19. But now for the ultimate edition, world's most expensive footballer player Neymar will stand next to the Portuguese.
In the previous FIFA editions, the UCL has been a big-time amiss for the game, as it has largely trumped Pro Evo for the rights to teams, leagues, and competitions. But now, UCL can be played throughout FIFA 2019 edition, which will be launched on 28th September 2018. Also, last Saturday, EA Sports released a trailer of the game offering the first look at the upcoming edition.
Bringing more layers to the game with changes that extend far beyond the front cover, EA is on a mission to make its sports games even more realistic in terms of both packaging and gameplay.
