EA Sports has officially announced that Cristiano Ronaldo, donning his new Juventus uniform, will be featured on the cover of FIFA 19 along with Brazilian star Neymar. While Ronaldo will appear on the Standard Edition by himself, he’ll be joined by Neymar on the Champions and Ultimate edition covers.
FIFA 19 Ultimate Edition, Champions Edition and Standard Edition are all set to launch on September 29, but the game is now available for pre-order for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
EA Sports recently revealed a new trailer for FIFA 19, this time showcasing the game’s Active Touch system which promises to revolutionize what you can do with the ball at your feet and open up areas of gameplay that have never been explored before.
According to EA Sports, this new way of receiving, striking, and moving with the ball feels incredibly natural and fluid, allowing gamers to play in fresh, creative ways. Among the features that have been added to FIFA 19’s Active Touch system include multiple means of trapping the ball, feints and new flick animations.
“Numerous tools and animations have been added to the ball control system to provide more variety in moving the ball. Specifically, there are now multiple means of trapping the ball, such as the “disguise trap,” a feint used to fool defenders into moving the wrong direction with very subtle first touch movement. Get closer to the real world game by using the same moves that pros like Toni Kroos use to create space, send defenders the wrong way, and open up the game for your team.”
“Similar to the new ways of trapping the ball, a variety of flick animations have also been added to allow for deeper creativity in attack. Players can use their head, chest, knees, and feet to flick the ball, change direction, confuse defenders, and open up space that they can exploit. Just like Kylian Mbappé bamboozles defenders with his bag of tricks, you can do things with the ball in FIFA 19 that you never thought were possible and leave your opponent shaking his head in defeat.”
