The FIFA 18 “The Journey” story mode will be getting a pretty big expansion when the game comes out, according to the “official” Twitter page of Alex Hunter, its main character. On that page, it’s implied that new FIFA 18 European circuits will become open to Hunter to make more fans internationally.
Alex Hunter’s story began back in FIFA 17, where The Journey originally started. It focused around Hunter’s ambitions to become a famous soccer star, and allowed him to pick from a number of teams in the English Premiere League. Now, with the possibility of new FIFA 18 European circuits becoming available, Hunter can leave England.
New circuits that could be available include the German Bundesliga, the French Ligue 1, and the La Liga of Spain. There might be others in major European countries, but there’s no guarantee of that for now. However, the possibility of Alex Hunter going abroad to other teams also will allow gamers to play with some of the more famous European football clubs.
For instance, depending on what club you join, Alex will meet one of the more famous players from that club, for instance Cristiano Ronaldo who (for the time being) is part of Real Madrid. While he may not stay there if he resigns from the team before the game comes out, Alex will be able to meet him and a number of other famous players.
All of these clubs may also be familiar to players who went through The Journey back in FIFA 17, as Hunter played against Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, and Paris Saint-Germain, all of which are from Spain, Germany, and France respectively. This may cause some tension in-story, but once again we’ll have to see to find out.
If all of the new information is true, the new FIFA 18 European circuits will be coming with the game when it releases on September 29 for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
