FIFA 19 brings two additional characters to “The Journey,” the game’s story driven mode. In total, it follows three heroes with their own unique stories. Play as Alex Hunter, Danny Williams, and Kim Hunter through their journeys as they reach career driven milestones. However, there is a unique twist. Their stories intertwine and occur simultaneously. This allows players to switch between all three characters at any time to experience new perspectives.
Additionally, all stories will have players crossing paths with some of the world’s most famous footballers. That includes Neymar Jr., Alex Morgan, Paulo Dybala, Kevin De Bruyne, and much more.
Meet the Champions
Hunter returns this year alongside the new characters. As the original star of “The Journey,” most of his career has been experienced in previous installments. This year, in “The Journey: Champions”, Alex has finally secured his dream move. He is going to Spanish footballing giants, Real Madrid.
Alex met Danny during the National Football Academy exit trials. The two didn’t get along. The rivals bond as teammates while playing in the second division. Eventually, the two become close friends. When Alex leaves for L.A., Danny joins his old club to pick up where Alex left off. After a brief scare midway through “The Journey: Hunter Returns,” Danny fights for his position in the club after a string of solid outings.
Kim Hunter, Alex’s half-sister, is an American soccer player with dreams of playing at the highest level of the women’s game . Alex and Kim meet after Alex joins the LA Galaxy at his father’s suggestion. Shortly after, Kim gets her first cap for the United States Women’s National Team. Now, she’s ready to take her career to the next level in “The Journey: Champions” with a call-up for the Women’s World Cup.
A first in sports gaming, Kim Hunter is stepping into a lead role in the trilogy’s final chapter. Play Kim’s story as she continues her personal journey to represent the US at the Women’s World Cup.
