Leaked FIFA 18 The Journey 2 screen apparently shows six playable leagues

Until now FIFA 18 (opens in new tab) developer EA Canada has been tight-lipped on exactly which clubs, and leagues, will form the storyline behind Alex Hunter's return in season two of The Journey – but one sneaky Redditor claims to have solved the mystery.

A leaked screen (opens in new tab) posted by user Oskarek, purporting to be from a Brazilian event showcasing the game, appears to show six selectable countries within the mode. They are Brazil, England, USA, Germany, France, and Spain.

However, Brazilian club players weren't in last years game, so its intriguing that that nation is represented by its flag in the leaked screen, rather than a league or club logo.

A poster named Rodhas (opens in new tab) offers an explanation for that: "I was at this event today and they specifically mentioned that the Brazil part is just for the pre-season. No Brazilian league confirmed yet."

One thing I should point out, and reported back in June (opens in new tab), is that The Journey is split into six chapters. Could each of these represent one chapter? It's an explanation which would tally with that Rodhas quote, with the mode likely kicking off with a Brazil friendly before moving back to the Premier League for chapter two.

As soon I have any official word from EA, I'll pass it on.

I'm GamesRadar's sports editor, and obsessed with NFL, WWE, MLB, AEW, and occasionally things that don't have a three-letter acronym – such as Chvrches, Bill Bryson, and Streets Of Rage 4. (All the Streets Of Rage games, actually.) Even after three decades I still have a soft spot for Euro Boss on the Amstrad CPC 464+.
