FIFA 19 cover star Cristiano Ronaldo has apparently received the world’s first copy of the game which isn’t due to release for another week and a half (September 28).
The Juventus star tweeted a picture of himself and son, Cristiano Ronaldo Junior, posing with a PlayStation 4 copy of the game. The which arrived in a special edition with the tag line ‘champions rise’ which ties in with the game’s new Champions League license.
Ronaldo scored his first Serie A goals for the club over the weekend and probably have a few cheeky games of Ultimate Team or FIFA 19’s new Kick Off party modes with his son to celebrate.
While Ronaldo appears proudly on the front cover in full Juventus kit, his £99million move to Italy must have caused EA Sports a few issues. Whilst changing the front cover should have been simple enough, there were worries that the transfer could have ruined Journey Mode.
FIFA 19’s story mode will this year see the final chapter of Alex Hunter as he secures his dream move to Real Madrid with eyes on the Champion’s League trophy. Many real-life Madrid stars such as Luka Modric and Toni Kroos appear in the game.
CR7 completed his move just a couple of months before FIFA 19’s release but EA stress that his transfer never caused any issues and Journey mode was left unhindered. EA have pulled out all the stops for the mode this year, allowing you to follow three different players at once, deciding who you want to see succeed.
