FIFA 17’s ‘Journey Mode’ has been one of EA Sports’ biggest success stories in recent years.
Alex Hunter’s journey from Sunday League to the Premier League went down a storm with the majority of gamers, and now it looks like the game mode is ramping up another level with a superb feature.
Over the past few days, EA Sports have created their very own Twitter account for Alex Hunter, and @‘s latest activity suggests that the Bundesliga, La Liga and Ligue 1 will all appear on FIFA 18’s ‘Journey Mode’.
Something that fans have yearned for, for some time.

Alex Hunter could only play for Premier League and Championship teams in the previous game mode, but the introduction of other leagues will produce plenty more story lines for users to engage with.
In the FIFA 18 Journey Mode trailer, footage of Alex Hunter and Cristiano Ronaldo speaking in the tunnel sparked a flurry of rumours.
From Harry Redknapp to Manchester United die-hard Andy Tate, the trailer has earned plenty of plaudits from FIFA fans across the globe.
We see Rio Ferdinand discussing Hunter’s transfer plans, Thomas Muller discussing his undeniable potential and Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola praising the young forward in an entertaining post match interview.
And now it looks certain that you will be able to play in the Bundesliga, La Liga and Ligue 1 from September 29 onward.
