While it didn’t get as high a review score as the normal version FIFA on Nintendo Switch was still regarded a success.
Not running on the Frostbite Engine, the Switch version was built from the ground up to get the most out of a handheld experience.
And some top FIFA 19 release news has been shared by EA this year for the upcoming Nintendo Switch games version.
It has now been confirmed that the next launch – probably arriving in September – will benefit from some eye-catching upgrades.
EA have confirmed that they will be offering an upgraded version this year, which will boast better graphics.
“The intent was never to have a one-off custom engine that were never going to touch again,” Andrei Lazarescu, Supervising Producer for FIFA World Cup mode, told Dream Team FC.
“It was to have that as a baseline and then build from there.”
It will be a good jumping off point for the EA Sports to use, and will lead to visual improvements that will go beyond the pitch.
It was also announced that the crowd will look more detailed in FIFA 19, better face paint and hats were mentioned.
While FIFA 19 uses a different engine on the Nintendo Switch, EA Sports have written off the idea of using Frostbite in the future.
However, while the team are open to exploring the idea, it seems they won’t be launching it just to appease fans.
“I’m not closing the door on that possibility,” he added. “However we didn’t want to create a dumbed-down version of the frostbite engine.”
The Frostbite Engine will be used for FIFA 19 on Xbox One, PC and PS4, with a release date expected to be announced during E3 2018.
Until then, fans can enjoy FIFA 18’s new World Cup mode, which now live to enjoy on all platforms.
As with 2014, the World Cup mode on FIFA 18 is available as downloadable additional content, rather than an entirely new game.
Gamers will be prompted to download the new update when they next log on to the game.
Gamers should free up some storage space to make sure they can play the FIFA 18 World Cup mode.
When the update has finished, fire-up your Ultimate Team on FIFA 18 to find the new World Cup mode.
