During the eWorld Cup Grand Final in London, EA Sports announced that the 2019 iteration of its popular FIFA title will come loaded with a bunch of brand new features, Euro Gamer reports.

The new features, some of which are standard developments, include "survival mode" — a Battle Royale type situation where a random player is eliminated from the game every time a goal is scored. It won't get to a last-man-standing situation though, as the mode adheres to the real-life rules of the game. Once a team has more than four players eliminated, the game will be forfeited — as per normal rules — and a winner declared.

The rules for kick-off are changing, too — now you can actually turn the referee off and have a rule-free match, meaning you can stray offside or foul until your heart's content. A “headers and volleys” mode will also be added, which means only goals scored via head or volley will count.

A more advanced stat tracking will keep count of when and where your goals were scored, and against whom.

FIFA 19 will be released on September 28, 2018.

Are you hyped for survival mode? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Now, here's what it's like to earn a fortune as a pro gamer.
