FIFA 18 World Cup Patch Is A Nice Surprise

May 04,2018


EA takes a lot of shit from a lot of people for many of its business practices. Therefore, it decided to give away a big FIFA 18 World Cup update, which they used to charge - that's really a pleasant surprise.

Earlier today it announced that the World Cup update will add something new to FIFA 18, from the new team kit (soccer teams always debut new uniforms for major tournaments) to the Russian stadiums with officially licensed graphics.

Players will be able to play through the entire 32 team World Cup and have the option to customise the tournament to include non-qualified teams (such as the United States, Italy and the Netherlands) and the World Cup content is being added to FIFA 18's money-printing Ultimate Team mode.

The last time the World Cup was held in 2014, EA released an independent video game for it. Of course, it was more comprehensive - it included the qualification process of the tournament, which meant that all 203 FIFA national sides were present - but many of them were unlicensed, and the business end of the game sounds similar to what’s being offered in the World Cup 2018 update.

Although the 2018 update may not be as compehensive as previous years, the fact that it is free is enough to make up for that. This is also an amazingly generous move from EA, a company known more for squeezing as many dollars out of fans as it can, not just giving away major content updates for nothing.

Maybe it is a post-Battlefront public relations move. Maybe someone realized that the last time EA charged for the tournament DLC did not go as well. Maybe they saw Konami's free Euro 2016 update and wanted to defeat it. Maybe this is just a sign that Ultimate Team makes a lot of money for EA, they do not care about cover charge.

who knows! All we know  is that FIFA 18 was already an amazing sports game that a lot of pl ayers played a lot in 2017. Having the entire World Cup added to it for nothing means that we will now be playing a ton of it in 2018 as well. So get enough fifa 18 coins and join the amazing sports game now!
