FIFA 19: 7 of the best new secret features in Career mode

Number 6 will be sure to shake things up

The Champions League coming to FIFA 19 is one of the biggest developments Career mode has ever had.

Authentic and exciting

In an interview with USGamer, FIFA 19 creative director Matthew Prior spoke about Career mode and how changes would be seen by players.

“There’s a big update in the sense that the Champions League is included” Prior said. “This time, Career mode is the most authentic it has ever been.” Prior also hinted there would be a whole user interface overhaul to reflect the new league – not to mention some key cinematic additions that help add more realism.

Managers and handling the press

You’ll now be able to customise your managers and have them host press conferences.

YouTuber Futmentor drafted up some images on how the fully customisable manager’s locker may look.
