FIFA 19: PC requirements, demo details, Xbox One file size and more

This year's FIFA has a lot to prove if it wants to outplay its predecessor that was praised as the best instalment in the series, and possibly even the greatest football game ever made.

EA is releasing new features and additions with FIFA 19 like Active Touch that allows the player to control the ball with a precision not seen in any previous title. Another new feature is Timed Finish that reward players for perfect timing when shooting for a goal and punishes them for missing the timing - which is just pressing a button at the correct moment. So far, feedback from fans indicates that they are not excited about this feature, with some calling it "a bad and unnecessary thing."

For the first time in a FIFA game, players will participate in UEFA club competitions, including the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Super Cup competitions. Another big plus for FIFA 19 is the conclusion of Alex Hunter's story in The Journey: Champions. FIFA 19 also includes more than 20 playable stadiums, these are 20 English Premier League grounds, as well as six new stadiums from the Spanish La Liga, and three from the Spanish Segunda Division.

FIFA 19 doesn't come cheap, it will set you back around R1000 on all three platforms (Switch version retails at around R800), so you might want to play the demo before you purchase the game.

According to Gadgets 360, the FIFA 19 demo will release on Thursday, 13 September, which gives you plenty of time to enjoy the game before its full release on September 28. If you're not willing to pay the full price for FIFA 19, and if you want early access, then you should consider becoming an EA and Origin Access subscriber, or even better, for PC gamers, Origin Access Premier.

EA also released the PC requirements for FIFA 19, and I am a bit concerned as it mirrors that of FIFA 18. I understand that FIFA games are all about smooth gameplay and not graphics, but I did expect an upgrade from the previous year's requirements since those were already very low.
