A new update is heading to FIFA 2018 from Electronic Arts. This time the update focuses on the upcoming 2018 Football World Cup that takes place in Russia during the month of June.
EA is putting out a free content update that includes a deluge of new content themed around the worlds biggest sporting event for footie.
The free content update will give players what EA is calling, “the official tournament experience” with all the elements of the official World Cup, although corruption is probably not included. Players can expect to find the authentic teams, stadiums, kits, and badges. Winners trophies and official match balls are also included in the update. It looks like EA thought of everything to truly give FIFA 2018 players the best World Cup experience.
All 32 of the qualifying teams get new content, as well as access to a special custom tournament mode that can be played online. Non-qualifying teams can also take part in this mode as well, so no fear Italian or American football fans. The devs are also rolling out the revised chemistry system that affects how teams play together in FUT.
But it’s not just new team grounds and getups being thrown out to celebrate the event, all 12 of the Russian stadiums are being added to the base game. And each one comes with all the colors and team banners that one might see in the real events. No drunken brawling or rioting, sadly for you hooligans in the crowd.
The World Cup FIFA 2018 update releases on May 29, and here’s the trailer:
