Buy FIFA 19 – Guide to Prices, Stores, Editions & Dates

Introduction to the guide

If you are reading this it is because you are probably planning to buy FIFA 19 and want to know more details about the game. Our goal is to help you to know where you can buy FIFA 19, how much you will pay and for which edition you will choose.


 
 

Should I buy FIFA 19?

Is FIFA 19 a good game to you?
 

The first question everyone should do is if they are going to buy FIFA 19 or not. If you are reading this article, it is because you probably already made that decision. In fact, only you know how important is money to you, and if it is well spent in FIFA 19 or not. The best we can do is to explain what we think about the buy.

In our opinion, if you are a FIFA fan you definitely should buy FIFA 19. The game takes even more advantage of the Frostbite engine and the database is up to date. Besides that, it includes the European Champions League experience and the chapter of Alex Hunter Journey. You can also expect a game with the usual issues, like slow servers and lots of bugs, but the fun is guaranteed. In the other hand, if you are a casual player and you are looking for a football / soccer simulation video game, FIFA 19 is still a good choice. You have to choose between FIFA and PES and it looks that the EA’s title is still much better than the Konami’s video game. If you are not a football fan, then there are many other games that can make you much happier than this one.

Q: What is the difference between the Standard, Champions and Ultimate editions?
A: You can compare the three editions with the help of the following table which outlines the differences between them:

OFFERS
STANDARD
CHAMPIONS
ULTIMATE
Jumbo Premium Gold Packs52040
UEFA Champions League Players011
Cristiano Ronaldo Loan matches777
Neymar Loan matches77
Days of Early Access033


 

Q: These offers are exclusive for pre-orders?
A: Yes. These editions are available for pre-order and expire on September 27, 2018.

Q: How much more do I pay for the Champions and Ultimate Editions?
A: It depends on the stores. Check your local store for prices or take a look at the stores and prices chapter, please.

Q: Do I need to buy FIFA 19 Champions or Ultimate editions in order to play Ultimate Team?
A: No. Ultimate Team mode is available in every single edition.

Q: When do these offers will be entitled?
A: First packs, loan players and kit token will be entitled immediately upon code redemption.

Q: When do the codes have to be redeemed?
A: Codes must be redeemed by October 14, 2018 to receive all packs and will no longer be valid after November 9, 2019. Late code redemption will result in forfeiture of previous weeks’ packs. Pack weekly offer is valid for 7 days and must be redeemed within that time period. Failure to log into fut to redeem the pack in any given week will result in forfeiture of that week’s pack offering.

Q: I share the console with someone. Who will get the goodies?
A: The rewards will be assigned only to the account used to buy the game. There is no way to change this.

Q: Which edition should I buy?
A: If you usually do not play Ultimate Team mode, you should choose the standard edition and save some money. Many will say to you to pick the Champions or the Ultimate Edition, but we have a different opinion. We know that the gold packs from these two editions are cheaper than if you buy them from the store but there is something you should not forget: you only get one or two gold packs per week, over 20 weeks. This is a huge disadvantage since you need those packs as soon as possible to build your dream team. The market depreciates over the time, so when you redeem your last pack you probably no longer need it. The three days early access are really tempting and the chance of picking a Champions League player is also interesting but not worth the extra money.

Q: What about Nintendo Switch? Which editions are available?
A: For Nintendo Switch there are only two editions available: standard and champions. The first one includes up to five Jumbo Premium Gold Packs, Cristiano Ronaldo loan for seven FUT matches and a special edition FUT kits designed by FIFA soundtrack artists. The most expensive edition also includes three days early access, Neymar loan item, 20 packs instead of 5 and a 80-83 rated UEFA Champions League Player. In other words, Nintendo editions rae exactly the same ones for consoles, except the Ultimate edition which doesn’t exist.

  1. Hi,

    Thank you so much for this article, it is very useful.
    But I found that at scdkey.com, the price is even cheaper than at kinguin.net (about 41 euros). Is it reliable?

  2. Hi , I’m on ps4 and I’m planning to buy the ultimate edition. When I go into fifa 18 , I find the 10 percent discount banner but when I press on it , it tells me that the item is currently not available

  3. Hello!
    First, thanks for the work, Fifa 18 was my first Fifa playing UT, so I was absolutely clueless at the beggining, and your articles allowed me to familiarize with the game.
    I´m on PS4. My EA account is linked to my local PSN account (i´m from Uruguay)
    I´m considering to buy FIFA 19 from the US store.
    Should I be able to link my EA account to a different PSN id at the start of FIFA 19, and therefore carry over FP and FC coins? Or it is locked?
    Thanks!

    • Hi Darío. Thank you very much. In case you don’t know, we also have a Spanish version of our website on es.fifauteam.com. It has fewer articles but we are adding more content on a regular basis.
      To buy FIFA 19 from the US store, you will need to have PSN Plus from that region. As far as I know, your EA account is locked to your PSN ID, If you are not using the same PSN ID, then you will not be able to carry over FP and FC credits.

  4. Do we have an idea when/if the Amazon Prime deal will take place? As of 8/27/18 there is no 20%, from what I can see.

  5. O desconto de 20% (EA Access + In-Game Offer) é somente para a versão Ultimate? Só consegui 10% para a versão Champions! É isso mesmo?
