Goal pieces together all the information about the most anticipated football video game release of the year

The release of FIFA 19 is still a number of months away, but fans are already looking for details on the next instalment of EA Sports' highly popular football game.

The game's developers launched a World Cup 2018 edition on FIFA 18 to accompany the tournament in Russia and it won't be long until the next game in the series hits the shelves.

Cristiano Ronaldo has already been confirmed as the game's cover star, with the Portuguese icon gracing the front for the second year in succession.

With the big release set for autumn, Goal has the complete guide to everything you need to know about the latest EA Sports FIFA game.

When will FIFA 19 be released?

There had been talk that there might not even be a FIFA 19 release, with EA Sports chief executive Andrew Wilson stating in a recent interview with Bloomberg that the title could move to a Netflix-style subscription service .

But EA Sports has confirmed that the game will be released globally on September 28, which is consistent with previous release dates and ideally timed before the festive period.

Like FIFA 18, there will be three different editions: the standard edition, Champions edition and Ultimate edition. The latter two editions replace the 'Ronaldo' and 'Icons' editions of FIFA 18.  

Gamers have the option of getting the game three days early - on September 25 - by pre-ordering, which also carries some quirks depending on what edition you purchase.
