Adetomiwa Edun gives his voice and
face to the player “Alex Hunter” in the
new FIFA17 The Journey story mode
Who is Alex Hunter?
Alex Hunter is a 17-year-old multiracial
male from Clapham,London . Hunter’s
grandfather is former English striker Jim
Hunter (20 goals in the 1966–67
season). Under his grandfather’s
guidance, Hunter has decided to play as
a footballer in the Premier League the
The game will feature a new single-
player story campaign mode titled The
Journey for PS4, Xbox One and Windows
where players assume the role of Alex
Hunter, a young footballer trying to
make his mark in the Premier League .
The player will be able to select one of
20 Premier League clubs to play for at
the beginning of the season. The player
can play any position including
goalkeeper. The story mode also
features a dialogue wheel , similar to
the Mass Effect series.
Hunter, a character inspired by the likes
of Raheem Sterling and Andros
Townsend, is thrust into the first team
and finds himself in the same dressing
room as superstar footballers.
At a recent hands-on event, I got to
play this scene. In the demo provided
by EA, Hunter had signed for
Manchester United. We see him and
close friend Gareth Walker, who has also
signed for Man Utd, looking agog at
their names on their shirts in the
dressing room. They’re proud, excited
and scared.

The Journey’s story won’t just take
place on the pitch of course. Just like a
real football career, you’ll be part of all
of the elements of Alex Hunter’s career

his Grandpa’s house to travelling on
