FIFA 19: EA Sports has added THREE brand new game modes to this year’s game

We've already picked out favourite

You wait an age for one new game mode then three come along.

That’s right, FIFA 19’s new Kick Off menu will house a trio of never-before-seen modes.

SIGN UP NOW – It’s time to pick your fantasy football team for the new season

Here’s what you need to know about them.

Elimination mode

FIFA 19 will feature a Survival Mode that can be played without a referee.

Here, when you score a goal, one of your players leaves the pitch. The first to lose five players wins – it’s as simple as that.

When asked about whether Survival Mode was influenced by Fortnite and other battle royale games, EA Sports creative director Matt Prior told Eurogamer: “That battle royale thing kicked off long after we came up with this idea, but it’s funny people are associating it [survival mode] with battle royale.”

“I’m sure people won’t believe me when I say this, but it genuinely had nothing to do with that! But it is funny how it’s being seen as that!”

No Rules 

No Rules is exactly what you’d expect it to be – and lets you tackle, trip and run offsides to your heart’s content.

There’s also a number of other parameters you can play around with – including just having to score goals with headers and volleys.

First To, Best Of and Home vs Away 

First To sets a goal limit to add pressure, while Best Of applies this concept to matches.

Here, players take part in a best-of-three or a best-of-five series. Home vs Away sees you pay in two back-to-back matches where the winner is determined by the number of goals after two games.

All of these modes will be available on PS4Xbox OneNintendo Switch and PC when the game launches on September 2
