The FIFA 19 release date has been announced by EA Sports at E3 2018. The game will be available on the PC, PS4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One platforms.
You may be wondering why EA has not released the game earlier, with the World Cup 2018 set to start tomorrow. That is because the company released an update for FIFA 18, which includes the World Cup in the game.
And this update was released for free for all owners of the game, which is really surprising, especially since EA is involved.
Back to FIFA 19, the game will feature the UEFA Champions League, the Europa League and Super Cup. The game’s commentary team comprises of Derek Rae and Lee Dixon. FIFA features the Frostbite game graphics engine, and will see the dramatic conclusion in The Journey:Champions which has Alex Hunter (the fictional star from past versions).
Here is the official FIFA 19 trailer:
If you pre-order the game you will get some bonuses.
