The Battle Royale genre has swept the gaming world and is extremely popular. From PC and console to mobiles, everybody seems to be playing some sort of Battle Royale game. EA Sports decided to change up the usual formula and have added new modes to the regular Kick Off mode. While they have teased a 5v5 mode, there’s also a mode that they’ve dubbed the “Survival Mode”.
Survival Mode starts off as a regular 11v11 match but each goal you score means that one of your players leaves the field. The field size remains the same and follows usual FIFA rules where you need to have 7 players on the field otherwise you forfeit the match. The first player to score 5 goals wins. This is quite familiar to the mode in FIFA Street that released for the PlayStation 3 in 2012. It seems like a great time to bring in such a mode to capitalize on the Battle Royale genre in their own unique way. With FIFA 19 right around the corner, we won’t have to wait too long to find out more about the Survival Mode and all the new changes in the series.
