EA Sports has released a closed beta of FIFA 19 that was not supposed to be playable until Friday, August 10, but many players have already managed to get started.
The beta features both Kick Off and Ultimate Team modes which have received massive changes for the upcoming game. EA also recently released the first details for this year’s Journey mode as Alex Hunter signs for Real Madrid.
Meanwhile, other FIFA 19 modes have been left in the dark, including underrated pro clubs. Players have entered the mode on the beta and the first signs are not looking good.
There is a closed beta of FIFA 19 and fans have noticed something concerning for professional clubs
The beta of Pro Clubs doesn’t seem to offer anything different from last year without new features. Even the player growth system and options are exactly the same.
However, since EA hasn’t made any announcements about the mode, it’s entirely possible that EA just included an older version as a placeholder. FIFA 19 releases on September 28, so EA could still polish the features before revealing them.
Especially when you consider some of the general new features in the game that would be obvious tweaks. One of them is the new tactics system which makes it much easier to customize your playstyle. Clubs are all about playing like the star you’ve always dreamed of being, so having more customizable tactics for your team would be. huge.

On top of that, EA will surely find a way to bring the Champions League and Europa League licenses into the mode after securing the lucrative rights to major European competitions. The Champions League could easily replace current club cups – seeing you walk the iconic music theme would be a sight to behold.
This is a move that would make sense given that EA has already integrated both tournaments into all other modes. Career Mode is another game mode that has yet to be announced, but even includes CL and EL.
When we got a chance to play FIFA 19 early at a press event, we were shown new Career Mode menus that will take effect when your next match is in one of the competitions.
It remains to be seen if we’ll see any more career mode updates, but if there’s anything new, Gamescom in a few weeks will likely be when EA makes announcements.
