EA Says The Journey Mode For FIFA Switch Could Come In The Future To The System

EA announced yesterday during their E3 press conference that FIFA 19 is coming to the Nintendo Switch this September along with the other versions. This version contains the UEFA Champions League but won’t include The Journey mode which is to be found in the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions. Speaking to US Gamer, producer Andrei Lazarescu said that while it won’t be available in FIFA 19 for Nintendo Switch it could come in the future as the team works around not using the stunning Frostbite engine, which is absent on Switch. Here’s more information taken from the interview:

Overview on Switch version:

“We never thought about improving any one thing from FIFA 18. We thought, ‘How can we bring that experience one level up.’ And I think everything we did with that in mind while still keeping to the uniqueness of the platform,” Lazarescu says. “Online friendlies, for sure, it’s a thing that players wanted. They wanted the ability to play with friends online. But in terms of gameplay, we wanted the game to feel with every match. We did a lot of things with shooting. You’ll also find that besides Champion’s League, we’re doing a lot with the presentation—La Liga, Bundesliga, Premier League, all of those.”

With regards to The Journey:

“Who knows? Maybe, but it relates to last year as well—we intentionally chose to create a custom experience on Switch because we were looking for a flawless 60fps experience. Maybe there are some gaps between our custom engine and the Frostbite Engine, but every year we’re not just looking to add more future, we’re also looking to build up the engine to cover those gaps. And it’s just Year 2, after all.”

    1. EA is a great company, I agree with them that for Fifa a custom engine is the way to go. I would prefer my soccer matches at 60fps without the journey than a frostbite version running at 30fps. Fifa 18 is great on switch, I have a ps4 and a xbox one too and I choose to get the switch version of fifa 18 and I didn’t miss anything from other versions at all.

      I guess if they keep working on the custon engine to close the gap with frostbite then I’m good with that.
