EA Sports teased it on Sunday, and came through on Monday as the first trailer for FIFA 18 has been released.
The trailer features the game’s cover athlete Christiano Ronaldo, and shows off footage from the in-game frostbite engine.
“The world’s best player has helped fuel the biggest leap forward on the pitch that we’ve ever delivered,” Senior Producer for EA SPORTS FIFA Aaron McHardy said in a press release. “We are extremely excited to partner with Cristiano – working with him we learned a lot about his unique play style and what makes him so special. His passion, energy and global fanbase make him the perfect ambassador for FIFA 18.”
Not much is given away in the short reveal trailer, but it was revealed that there will be three different editions of the game: Standard, Ronaldo and Icon. Each coming with their own special perks.
FIFA 18 will be just one of the many games playable at the upcoming EA Play event this weekend in Los Angeles. Sports Gamers Online will be live from EA Play and E3 with full coverage all week long!
FIFA 18 launches on September 29 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC. Players on PS3 and Xbox 360 will get a “Legacy Edition” of the game, much like the NHL series receives.
