Once more bucking the pre-FIFA 17 trend of including F.C. Barcelona player Lionel Messi as the cover star, after his Ballon D’Or and success with Real Madrid C.F. this season, the teaser focuses on Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo.
Showing off the powers of the slick Frostbite engine once more, the game’s latest installment claims to be “fueled” by Ronaldo.
Some controversy has arisen after EA Sports confirmed that the Xbox-exclusive Ultimate Team Legends cards — featuring the likes of Pele, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Gary Lineker of years past — will be axed for this game, and possibly for all future.
FIFA 18 has a planned release date of September 29th, 2017, almost two months into the timetable of most European soccer leagues. Let us know your thoughts on the upcoming installment or even on the franchise as a whole in the comments section below.
