What are FUT Icons and Icon Stories, and other things to know about them in FIFA 19
FUT Icons are essentially classic, legendary players who have since retired from football, but have been brought back to the game in FIFA Ultimate Team. They're only in FUT, not the standard Career Mode or anything like that, and are ultra-rare cards that, the odd special event aside, will be very hard to find.
They're found in the usual ways - in packs - but unlike regular 'cards' in Ultimate Team, they come in three distinct versions. This is what EA means when it talks about Icon Stories: each player with an Icon card actually has three cards that you could find, representing three periods in their career. They'll have three different sets of stats, and often different positions, too, as well as different images on the cards.
Steven Gerrard is the first player to have his own featured video this year, and the inclusion of three versions of his card in that video again all but confirms Icon Stories will return again for FIFA 19.
