EA Sports has released the a trailer focusing on the story mode in FIFA 18, ‘The Journey.’ In addition, the developers shed some light on the Nintendo Switch version of FIFA 18.

FIFA 18 Return of Hunter And More

FIFA 18‘s new story trailer opens with a little bit of conflict that will drive the story’s arc. Some big names like Cristiano Ronaldo and Antoine Griezmann will star in this year’s game. NBA star, James Harden, will also be making an appearance in FIFA 18‘s ‘The Journey.’ The trailer also confirms the return of Alex Hunter, the story’s primary character. It seems this year, Hunter will be making quite the journey (no pun intended) in his career as he travels all over the world including places like Los Angeles. Be sure to watch the trailer above or via YouTube.

In other news, IGN posted about the Nintendo Switch edition of FIFA 18. Andrei Lazarescu, the producer on FIFA 18, explains why the Switch version has some cut content. He explains that the team feared the large amount of content might overwhelm Switch players. Since FIFA 18 is not the first ever FIFA game and new to the Switch, the years of content may be too much for the budding market.

The Nintendo Switch is also viewed as a social platform. Thus, the switch version may not need all the extra bells and whistles. EA Sports recognizes the difference in demographics on each platform and thus takes them for what they are. Ultimately, FUT Champions and Squad Battles have been excluded along with a few other noteworthy features. Lazarescu also notes that he sees the different versions as “two different games, two different worlds.” EA will be presenting a more straightforward experience on the Nintendo Switch.
