FIFA 19: 9 New features that will change the way you play Career Mode

Players will be allowed a lot more control over how they want to play

We now know virtually everything there is to know about FIFA 19, including the release date of 28th September.

We haven’t however, seen any Career Mode gameplay from publisher EA.

Luckily, we got some insights when access was given to a select few at EA Play this year.

FIFA 19 will feel similar to the previous years title with a few minor adjustments

Let’s take a look at nine new gameplay features that will change the way you will play FIFA 19’s Career Mode.

Better direction

FIFA 19 will let you give your full-backs specific instructions when going on the attack.

This means you can dictate specific runs that suit your style of play and change whether the full-backs overlap the winger or underlap into the centre of the pitch.

Better marking

When defending, a second marker will appear above the player you will switch to when LB/L1 is pressed.

EA actually nicked this from PES.

Locate your enemy

The mini-map has had a small yet brilliant change made.

Your opponent’s players will now be marked with triangles instead of the traditional circles in order to avoid confusion when in a tense game.

Defending your title

Perhaps one of the best features that will really test your abilities, is the addition of game plans into FIFA 19.

You can now plan alternate tactics and team settings prior to a match for specific scenarios, for example, if you are 1-0 down or wanting to protect a lead.

The different tactics can be switched on your controller’s d-pad, so you can respond on the fly.

Defending the goal

Similarly, you will have greater control over how your defence attempts to reclaim the ball.

“Pressure after possession loss,” “constant pressure,” “drop back,” “balanced,” and “pressure on heavy touch” all being defensive options.

Perfect your shot
Timed Finishing will be sure to frustrate some of the more casual players but will become a valuable weapon for Ultimate Team pros.

As well as allowing players to shoot the normal way, they will also have the option to hit the Circle/B button again to hit the perfect shot into the back of the net.

Just passing through

Passing has had some major improvements, with the movement of the ball between players feeling a lot more natural, especially in regards to through-balls.

You can your hands on the new Fifa for free, honestly!

Touch, touch, pass

Along with the passing, a new active touch system has been introduced that makes the game much more fluid, realistic and authentic.

50/50 battles

No EA Sports isn’t introducing battle royale into FIFA, instead, your player’s instincts and how you have played within that game will be used to determine how good you are when it comes to dispossessing your opponents.
