Last night, leaked footage of FIFA 18's new career mode emerged online and the internet went mad for it.

The career mode feature will include a transfer deal hub which, for the first time, will involve your player actively sitting down to discuss terms of contracts and offers, including being able to add release clauses and include sell-on fees.

It sounds superb. EA Sports have finally improved a game mode that has become stale in recent years.

Fresh cut scenes and an all round more detailed story line will give the platform a real lift.

In another excellent move from EA Sports, player faces in FIFA 18 have improved dramatically.

Last year, when speaking to Dream Team Gaming, Frostbite Studio Director Jonas Skantz revealed that FIFA 18 will be a considerable leap in visual quality - despite running on the same engine.

And it's clear that Skantz has backed up his claims after leaked pictures of FIFA 18 player faces have emerged online.

These include Renato Sanches, Radja Nainggolan and Kylian Mbappe, among others.

The footage below shows the player faces of Antoine Griezmann, Ahmed Musa, Islam Slimani, Juan Cuadrado, Leroy Sane, Romelu Lukaku, Paulo Dybala, Douglas Costa and Alex Sandro, as well as other detailed screenshots of Radja Nainggolan.

You can clearly see EA Sports have worked hard to improve facial features and expressions in this year's release:

As we've already mentioned in previous weeks, EA Sports have created their very own Twitter account for Alex Hunter, and @MrAlexHunter's latest activity suggests that the Bundesliga, La Liga and Ligue 1 will all appear on FIFA 18's 'Journey Mode'.

Something that fans have yearned for, for some time.

Alex Hunter could only play for Premier League and Championship teams in the previous game mode, but the introduction of other leagues will produce plenty more story lines for users to engage with.

EA Sports have really upped their game this year
