There's a reason Electronic Arts' soccer titan tops the charts all year round, packing the ultimate bundle for sports fans. FIFA 19 (opens in new tab) further builds on an already rich sandbox with unmatched scale and depth, alongside modes to sink the hours. More immersive than ever, this is the sports game to beat in 2019.

It embraces the same foundations of any competitive title beside an accessible premise. Now exploring cross-platform play with PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC, it's a multiplayer game for all.
