The2018 FIFA World Cup Russiaexpansion will include all 32 teams that have qualified for the competition. That includes their players (most of which already exist as part ofFIFA 18), national kits and badges. EA will also be adding 12 official stadiums from Russia, the new match ball, the World Cup trophy and some extra cinematic scenes that will no doubt be coupled with fresh graphics and commentary. Its unclear if there will be any kind of offline campaign, however the publisher has merely confirmed online friendlies and tournaments, as well as custom tournaments for nations that didnt make it to Russia (hello, the USA…)
As the domestic football season starts to wrap up, all eyes are turning to the World Cup in Russia. EA, unsurprisingly, wants to celebrate the competition with a video game tie-in this year, however, it will be released as a free update forFIFA 18. Thats in stark contrast to 2014, when EA released a dedicated game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and a meagre Ultimate Team expansion for the PS4 and Xbox One. (Euro 2016, meanwhile, was owned by Konami and released as a freePESupdate.)
