FIFA 19 Adding a Survival Mode | Gaming
About a couple of months ago, Electronic Arts featured the first look at FIFA 19 with a trailer during its EA Play conference ahead of E3 2018, with the video game publisher and developer having then offered additional details about the title before its release this September. Now, EA Sports has decided to unveil its decision to bring a new gameplay type to the next entry in the long-running soccer simulation series by adding a Survival Mode.
According to EA Sports, FIFA 19‘s new kick-off will let players pick from a variety of different modes, with Survival being one of them, and its rules will have players who score a goal in a match see one of their team members chosen at random leave the pitch. The game will continue in this way, as the whole team will eventually be whittled down to lower numbers, making the decision of when to attempt a score on goal an even more strategic endeavor.
It’s worth mentioning that the addition of Survival Mode FIFA 19 isn’t EA Sports’ take on battle royale with the soccer title, because a match won’t get down to a last player standing situation, as it adheres to the real life rules of the sport in which the match is over if either team has fewer than seven players. So, in order for players to win against their opponent automatically before the 90 minutes of the match are up, they will need to score five goals, causing five players on their team to leave the game.
Interestingly enough, FIFA 19‘s Survival Mode features its own custom cutscenes to show players walking off the field in a confused manner, with custom commentary from Martin Tyler and Alan Smith actually mentioning what game type is being played when a player leaves the pitch. With this being the case, it definitely shows that EA Sports has taken care to not have fans’ immersion in FIFA 19 be dispelled.
All things considered, with FIFA 19 set to launch next month, it’s safe to say that fans of the franchise are practically champing at the bit to not only give Survival Mode a go, but also the game as whole. In fact, one of the more intriguing aspects of the title that players are excited about discovering is how Christiano Ronaldo’s Juventus signing will affect The Journey’s story campaign.
FIFA 19 launches on September 28, 2018 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
