In just a few weeks, Europe's biggest annual soccer competition, the Champions League, went from video game franchise to its bitter rival. When UEFA ended its partnership with Konami, a binding agreement that allowed Pro Evolution Soccer to make available the club tournament, that it was only dependent on time before EA jumped about the chance to add your competition to its FIFA franchise. The addition of Champions League will definitely give FIFA 19 more depth, particularly in its "The Journey" story mode, even so the updates to gameplay are nearly as important.

Don't do not understand, Champions League is a superb get for FIFA. When you consider EA just added the World Cup using a free update a month ago, digging in UEFA's club tournament means the superior two competitions on this planet (so far as most soccer fans are involved) at the moment are available in a similar game.

"It was always an ambition for 'The Journey' to separate with the pinnacle of club football," explained EA Sports creative director Mat Prior. "It was something we needed to showcase because ultimate goal of an player."

As you could possibly expect, EA added each of the details produce a proper Champions League experience. There are every one of the banners and regalia in pre-match festivities you're employed to seeing on TV. What's more, the progression must be realistic too, due to the fact that FIFA 19 may also offer UEFA Europa League. Meaning, should you finish third from the Champions League group stage, you'll enter in the Europa League. Oh yeah, UEFA Super Cup, the match that pits the actual title holders of both Champions League and Europa League together early within the season, is additionally part of FIFA 19.

All of their sounds good, though the tweaks EA meant to gameplay are something you will see in every match. First, there exists a new Active Touch System that enhances player controls and, furthermore, it will make the game feel considerably more fluid and showcase a gamer's personality.

"It's a total rewrite of how a person traps and approaches the ball," Prior said. "There's considerably more fluidity of motion, additional authenticity, additional control for that user."

50/50 battles can also be new this season. Basically, your player's instincts in conjunction with your reactions during the experience determine how well you win loose balls. Speaking of reactions, EA has made a big exchange signal of tactics. Officially dubbed Dynamic Tactics, the machine gives you to be able to set multiple gameplans, customized wish before the match. What's more, changing said gameplan has become easier to do mid-match as a result of a handy D-Pad function.

"We convey a new a higher level control through the pitch," Prior explained. "The effect will be far more obvious and they are also more customizable." Prior said it will allow users to to fine-tune what you should a level that were offered before from the game.

One new addition that may be almost certainly gonna be a source of frustration to me is Timed Finishing. Instead of firing off shots and the choice of normally would in FIFA, this tool means that you can take a more substantial risk in hopes of any bigger reward. By pressing the shot button a second time before your player kicks the ball, you can try to nail the timing to provide the more accuracy, curve and speed. If you're thinking that sounds easy, I assure you it's not necessarily.

"It's not just a guaranteed goal," Prior admitted. It does enhance your chances, yet it's not about to go in each and every time. I tried it a couple of times during my time with all the game only at E3, and I wasn't able to uncover a handle on it from the couple of matches I played. When you do make an effort to time things perfectly and miss, your player will fire off something wretched -- such as the weak dribbler of the opposing player I mustered. You don't have to utilize this at all and may just play that you normally would. However, the creation of the risk vs. reward scenario should have you thinking twice about wanting to do your very best Messi impression.

FIFA already a two-button mode to produce things easier for freshies, but in this current year's game, EA is adding a one-button mode. If you'd rather play a brilliant chill match where in-game AI decides what direction to go based about the situation, this will probably be for you. I really enjoyed the one-button Retro Mode in MLB: The Show 17 for playing a less complicated game when friends are no longer, so I'm getting excited about what FIFA 19 has in store here -- particularly when I'm messing around with my young son.

"We know FIFA could be a little overwhelming while using level of control you can expect," Prior said. "This permits people to get a comprehension of the action and the pace of the sport."

If that you were hoping to hear more about "The Journey," you must wait. EA says you will discover new things coming for FIFA's story mode, however it's not spilling any details yet. Well, besides Champions League matches will be portion of it, meaning Alex Hunter will get a possiblity to step within the UCL pitch. "There are going to be a wide range of surprises," Prior proclaimed. "And it is going to be centered around looking for the glory from the Champions League." Maybe Hunter is likely to make it to Real Madrid in the end.

When you are looking for FIFA 19 for the Nintendo Switch, EA is making some big changes fot it version of the experience as well. First, Online Friendlies will let you play a five-match season with anyone with your friends list. It's a nice approach to add-in a multiplayer option, and something that doesn't require the other guy to be in the identical room. Like the main version of the action, there are some changes to shooting. EA says you have "a new a higher level control" over shots, including to be able to nail new shots, fire off dipping and deceptive strikes and gives a finesse finish if your need arise.

On the Switch, you will also notice that there's more team and player personality. In other words, Barcelona will attack and the choice of're utilized to seeing them do it in real-life and Messi may play more much like the guy who's one from the best on the planet. It's all about adding an even more life-like feel for FIFA 19 on Nintendo's console. Lastly, there's more detail within the broadcast with the different tournaments. You'll notice overlays for such things as Champions League, Premier League, Bundesliga and La Liga. It should help enhance that all-important (virtual) match-day feel. Overall, EA is wanting to bring over really FIFA's realism to your version of the overall game for Switch, which really should be a advantage.

There's little doubt Champions League will provide more layers towards the story of Alex Hunter and also to your career mode aspirations, however the changes EA has produced in FIFA 19 extend far beyond adding a new cup. As always, this company is using a mission to produce its sports games more realistic, once a year update fans can invariably look forward to.
