Which FIFA 19 edition should you buy?

Which FIFA 19 edition should you buy?

The FIFA 19 release date is September 28th. If you buy the Champions or Ultimate Editions you get three days of early access to FIFA 19, so you can start playing on September 25th. On Xbox or PC, you can play early with EA Access or Origin Access, which allows you to play the full game early. Normally this is five days early.

FIFA 19 is available at Best Buy, GameStop and other retailers. You can also buy it digitally through Origin, Xbox and the PlayStation Store.

FIFA 19 Standard Edition

The FIFA 19 standard edition is available on PC, Xbox One, PS4 and the Nintendo Switch. This is the basic version of the game with a few pre-order bonuses. If you pre-order you get;

  • Up to five Jumbo Premium Gold Packs (one per week for five weeks)
  • Cristiano Ronaldo loan item for seven FUT matches
  • Special Edition FUT kits designed by FIFA soundtrack artists

This is $59.99 and the cheapest version that will get you into the game. If you are a casual player who doesn’t play FIFA Ultimate Team, this is the edition you should buy.

The FIFA 19 Champions edition is available on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. This game includes bonus items and allows you to play early on September 25th. This version includes;

Keep in mind that you need to log in weekly for 20 weeks to get all of the bonus items. If you just want to play early, look into EA Access or Origin Access.

If you like FIFA Ultimate Team or you want to play early, this is the edition for you. Unless you want even more bonus items.

FIFA 19 Ultimate Edition

If you a diehard FUT fan, pick up the FIFA 19 Ultimate edition.

If you a diehard FUT fan, pick up the FIFA 19 Ultimate edition.

The FIFA 19 Ultimate Edition is a digital version of FIFA 19 aimed at hardcore players who want the most FUT bonus items. You can only get the FIFA 19 Ultimate edition on Xbox One, PS4 or PC. This is $99.99 and includes a load of extras for FUT. Here’s what you get in addition to playing three days early;

  • Up to 40 FIFA Ultimate Team Jumbo Premium Gold Packs (two per week for 20 weeks)
  • UEFA Champions League Gold Player Pick (Choose one of five 80 to 83 rated gold players from qualified teams)

If you live inside the FIFA Ultimate Team mode, this is the version you need to buy. You’ll get a load of players throughout the first 20 weeks of the game and save money buying packs, if you are willing to wait. If you want packs up front, you may want to skip this version and buy packs all at once.

FIFA 19 Disk or Digital

The two lower cost FIFA 19 editions are on both digital and disk, while the FIFA 19 Ultimate edition is only available digitally. If you buy through Origin Access, you will get a digital game.

Prices are the same for disk and digital versions, but typically you can find bigger deals on the physical versions at Best Buy or Amazon. If you think you may want to let someone borrow the game or if you want to sell it after a short period, you may want to buy on disk.

If you buy digitally you don’t have to switch disks when you play and you get to pre-load the game. With EA Access or Origin Access you basically get to pre-load even if you buy on disk.

Gamers on the Switch should consider a digital version so they have one less cartridge to carry around.
