A Free World Cup Update Comes To FIFA 18 on May 29th
With the end of the domestic football season approaching, all people's attention are turning to the World Cup in Russia. There is no doubt that EA hopes to celebrate the competition with a video game tie-in - this year, but it will be released as a free update for FIFA 18. This is in stark contrast to 2014, when EA released a dedicated game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, as well as a meagre Ultimate Team expansion for the PS4 and Xbox One.
EA announced yesterday that it will release a free downloadale World Cup mode for its FIFA 18 football game. The mode will include all 12 Russian stadiums, cinematic cutscenes of the tournament, and allows players to establish their ultimate international team with players selected both from any country and accross the World Cup history. The downloadable Content (DLC) will also provide a customized tournament mode for fans of countries like the United States and Italy, both of which failed to make the real event, to at least be able to see their virtual players in Russia.
EA promises a full list of all 32 qualified countries, the 12 Russian stadiums the World Cup will be played in, official kits and tournament balls, and new celebration cinematics.
EA is also adjusting its build-your-dream-squad Ultimate Team mode for the event. The World Cup update will provide a "revised chemistry system" based on "dynamic player items related to the real-world tournament." There will also be a new collection of legendary "icons" - think Pele, Maradona and other World Cup greats - to strengthen and personalize your side.
During the previous World Cup years, EA created a brand-new games centered on the event. To play both the traditional FIFA game and the World Cup version, fans will have to buy both.
The free update (FIFA World Cup 2018 Russia) will be released on the Playstation 4, XBox One, PC and Nintendo Switch on May 29, and a limited-time World Cup mode will also be released for the smartphone-friendly FIFA Mobile app on June 6th.
