FIFA 18 will be the next installment in the EA Sports FIFA series, with the game coming out on September 29. Here’s what we know so far about the new game.
The Game will be available on the Nintendo Switch
FIFA 18 will be available on the Nintendo Switch, but instead, it will be called EA Sports FIFA. The game will feature Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Switch Kick Off and Local Seasons as the modes. You cannot yet pre-order the game for the Switch, but it will probably be the same price as it is for the game on consoles and PC.
The New “Legends” Will Be Available On PS4
EA Sports has gotten rid of Legends, which were cards in Ultimate Team that were of former players who were some of the greatest of all time. These cards were only available on Xbox. Now, EA Sports has made Icons, which are just like Legends except they are now also available on PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch as well as Xbox One. The announced Icons so far are Ronaldo Nazario, Diego Maradona, Thierry Henry, Lev Yashin, and Pele. I will make a post about all of the Icons careers in Soccer when all of the Icons are announced.
The Journey Will Return
The Journey was a new feature in FIFA 17 where you played as Alex Hunter, a fictional soccer youngster. You got to choose which team in the Premier League you wanted to play for and then play an entire season on that team. The Journey is coming to FIFA 18 too. It will be called The Journey: Hunter Returns. Clips in the trailer have indicated he might transfer to another club in the next season, but we will have to wait and see when the game comes out.
The Price and Pre-Order Bonuses
The price for FIFA 18 is $60 for the standard edition pre-order, and you get $15 worth of Jumbo Premium Gold Ultimate Team Packs, a Cristiano Ronaldo Loan for 5 Ultimate Team games, and 8 special Ultimate Team kits. If you pre-order the Ronaldo Edition for $80, you get $60 worth of Jumbo Premium Gold Packs, a Cristiano Ronaldo 5 game loan, 8 special kits and 3 days early access to the game. and if you pre-order the Icon edition for $100, you get everything you get in the Ronaldo Edition, except you get $120 worth of Jumbo Premium Gold Packs and a 5 game Ronaldo Nazario loans and a TOTW 3 game loan player for 20 weeks.
I am very excited for FIFA 18 and I will be doing many posts about it throughout the summer when more details about the game are released.
