FIFA 18's The Journey Mode May Add New European Circuits

Jul 06,2017


Following the @MrAlexHunter Twitter account pays dividends if you are looking for rumors and hints of what is coming to FIFA 18's second season of  The Journey, the game's story mode. Since its inception on June 8, the account has completed all the clues from the announcement of Chelsea to convey the upcoming content - especially through which account to follow.

According to the list of followed accounts, Hunter's home circuit of the English Premier League is a clear follow. But not so much the others: Germany's Bundesliga, France's Ligue 1, and Spain's La Liga are all included, heavily suggesting that Hunter's international career will be to some extent in the game's updated single-player campaign (though La Liga, of course, may simply be part of Cristiano Ronaldo's current circuit, given that the star player features prominently on the cover).

In the original FIFA 17's The Journey version, Alex Hunter played against Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain as a Premier League footballer. Trailers for FIFA 18's Hunter Returns, the second and latest part of The Journey,  plays up the possibility of a team transfer, away from whatever Premier League team the player's chosen Hunter to originally represent. Heavily hinted that was the opportunity to play side-by-side with Ronaldo on Real Madrid, lending credence to La Liga's presence in the campaign (though rumors may complicate this a bit).

As a reminder: FIFA 18 and Hunter Returns only can be available for the game owners on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The updated lists and statistics of FIFA 18 version which is availabele on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Switch, will also be available to players, but due to the  inferior hardware involved, EA SPORTS chose not to release versions of the single-player campaign to older consoles. The Frostbite engine used with it apparently won't work well without the upgraded performance specs (which suggests heavily a floor to what hardware it'll require on PC as well).

FIFA 18 will be releasing on September 29 as we know, are you excited about that? Follow us on facebook and twitter to get more information about FIFA 18.
