So Fifa 18 is out in less than a month and its time to see what changes (or lack of) have been made in the career mode. Career mode seems to have been stagnant for a few years with the focus heavily on Ultimate Team. That being said a huge number of players avoid the online element of Fifa and stick to the career mode. So lets see what the guys at EA have in store
The largest changes seem to be revolving around transfers. In previous years the transfer process has been carried out by emails to and from clubs and players agents. Now for the first time Fifa brings you real time negotiating. Its played out like an interactive cut scene. Typically of you meeting the selling club and agreeing a fee. Then meeting an agent and agreeing personal terms. In practice that sounds interesting in reality unless they are quick loading they may become a chore. Once a successful purchase is agreed you are shown a news clip of a press conference announcing the signing.
Training has been expanded to included 15 or more new mini games to improve your players and skill. You can create training plans and assign them to groups of players to help nurture talent.
After these we get in to the actual game play element of the game they are said to include improved atmospheres, more authentic playing styles and the ability to make substitutions on the fly.
Thats pretty much it for what has been announced. Now it should be said these new features have not been confirmed for the switch. It does sound pretty light on the improvement front for the career mode and time will tell if the above changes are more of a pain than an enhancement. Fifa 18 is out on the 29th of September.
