EA’s FIFA franchise has been ruling the charts ever since it started coming out way back in the 90s. Reasons are ample behind its enduring success, but there is a specific one that remains behind the newfound hype surrounding the game that has come to the fore since last year. Yes, we are talking about the Journey Mode, and this year too, the FIFA 18 Journey is expected to be as amazing as it was in FIFA 17, if not better.
Fifa 18 Journey: What is it?
The Journey Mode that made its debut last year with FIFA 17 is the single player story mode in the FIFA games. The first endeavor of this type in the long history of the franchise, the new mode had let players walk in the shoes of rising football star Alex Hunter. The player makes the entire journey of Hunter as he makes his way across junior teams and finally lands the chance to go to the big leagues. Needless to say, it was a hit; but it wasn’t without its faults.
The FIFA 17 Journey was a great attempt to make the game feel more personal than its predecessors. But almost anyone will agree that the story itself lacked the kind of depth one would come to expect from Electronic Arts. Besides, its execution was poor too. But there is every chance that the FIFA 18 Journey will fulfill all our football fanaticism with a good dollop of emotion.
FIFA 18 Journey: What can we expect
Even before the game was officially announced, EA officials had made it very clear that the Journey was returning in the 2017 game. This time around, they promised, there would be multiple storylines and new characters. But while we expected to see a new central character in the FIFA 18 Journey, it was made crystal clear in the title of the mode itself that it would be centered around none other than Hunter himself.
The FIFA 18 Journey mode is aptly titled “The Journey: Hunter Returns,” and just like last year, there will be a lot of drama. But do not expect it to deviate from football. Firstly, it is clear that the Journey in FIFA 18(http://fifa18gamer.com) will bring forth a host of new leagues. In fact, be prepared to see Hunter participating in Bundesliga, La Liga, and more. And if we are lucky, then the Premier League itself may be on the cards.
Besides that, the new FIFA 18 Journey story promises so much more than last season, what with Christiano Ronaldo himself making an appearance in the trailer.
It is clear that the FIFA 18 Journey is going to be a blast. Until the FIFA 18 release date rolls around, there is so much more to learn. And we hope to find out more about other aspects of the game as well as soon as the previews begin to take place. Stay with us for more updates.
