Players may be saying au revoir to the English Premier League and bonjour to Ligue 1 in FIFA 18‘s story mode, if a recent leaked image is to be believed.
A post claiming to show what leagues will be featured in FIFA 18‘s “The Journey” popped up recently on Reddit in the form of a photo showcasing six different international soccer leagues: Major League Soccer (U.S.A.), La Liga (Spain), Premier League (England), Bundesliga (Germany), and Brazil.
One interesting thing to note is that four of the leagues—U.S., Germany, France, and Spain—have specific teams attached, while the English Premier League features the league’s logo, not a specific team. Additionally, Brazil doesn’t necessarily have a league attached, as all we’re seeing in this photo is a picture of the Brazilian national flag.
EA previously released a teaser trailer for FIFA 18‘s The Journey, with a heavy emphasis on series protagonist Alex Hunter’s decision to sign with a new team in a new league or stay with, we’re assuming, Chelsea FC, given previous tweets and trailers featuring Hunter in the team’s colors. Several of the above-mentioned teams are mentioned in the first teaser trailer, but so it seems likely that this leak is the real deal.
The Journey premiered in FIFA 17 alongside the series’ first use of Frostbite Engine, and it was one of our favorite parts about the game. We’re interested to see where the second season of The Journey brings Alex Hunter in FIFA 18 when it comes to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on September 29th.
FIFA 18 will also be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Switch, but these versions won’t include The Journey given they’re not using the Frostbite Engine.
