FIFA 18...
CAREER MODE NEW FEATURES!

EA have finally given Career Mode a proper overhaul – get a load of what's new!

1.-Team-Styles.jpg

TEAM STYLES

Tactics are gonna be way more detailed on FIFA 18, so you will be able to tailor your team’s style of play to how you like it. Whether you’re a fan of tiki-taka, high pressing or counter attacking, you’ll have total control as manager!

TRAINING

We love checking out the new skill challenges on the new games, and FIFA 18 has more than 15 drills and challenges to help improve your players! There’s tons more detail too, so you can coach your squad to their full potential!

3.-Transfers.jpg

TRANSFERS

EA have taken some of the scenes from The Journey and included them in Career Mode. You’ll have proper sit-downs with opposition managers to sort out transfers for new signings and sales, with loads more detail in the deals!

OFF THE PITCH

As well as transfer negotiations, there’s loads of other extra scenes away from the pitch too. You’ll see your superstars showing off Player Of The Month awards, signing new deals and celebrating trophies!

5.-Maradona-Image.jpg

QUICK SUBS

A sick feature new to FIFA 18 is the introduction of quick subs! When the ball is out of play, you’ll be able to instantly use your bench, rather than having to pause the game and go into Team Management!

6.-La-Liga-TV.jpg

LA LIGA TV

After including the official Bundesliga TV presentation to FIFA 17, EA have added the same for La Liga and the MLS. The added graphics at the start of matches will be just like watching it in real life. How cool is that?

FIFA 18 REVEALED!

FIFA 18...
REVEALED!

Our mates at EA invited us to have a first look at FIFA 18 last week, and told us all about the new game! Here’s what we learned…

GAMEPLAY IS EPIC!

EA reckon FIFA 18 is the biggest improvement to gameplay for years, and the way players move is way more fluid and realistic. Your players respond to your instructions straight away – when you press shoot, they shoot!

YOU CAN FEEL THE ATMOSPHERE!

The look and sound of stadiums have been upgraded to capture unique atmospheres from around the world. We played at Boca Juniors’ Bombonera, and it was sick! You can even jump into the crowd to celebrate with fans!

3.-Likenesses.jpg

PLAYER LIKENESSES ARE RIDICULOUS!

Every year we say that the game is becoming more and more life-like, and every year it just gets better! The likenesses are crazy now – check out this incredibleclose-up of Cristiano Ronaldo!

DRIBBLING IS BETTER!

You’ll be able to use the skills of top dribblers better than ever on FIFA 18! Players respond to every touch of the controller, and move in their own unique way. Slow dribble is back on R1/RB, and no-touch dribble has been improved!

THE GAME IS SMARTER!

Player movement off the ball improved for FIFA 17, and it’s stepped up again! Your team-mates understand when to make a run and when to come short, while the opposition is able to use a wide variety of tactics against you!

CROSSING'S CHANGED!

EA SPORTS said crosses on FIFA 17 were looped up too much, so now regular crosses will be whipped in instead. You’ll still be able to loop it in by holding L1/LB, and drill it by holding R1/RB, but there’s no more double and triple tapping!

YOU CAN MAKE QUICK SUBS!

A cool new addition is the option to make a quick tactical tweak. When the ball goes out, you’ll have the chance to change a player by holding R2/RT, and selecting your super sub!

MORE 'DRAMATIC MOMENTS'!

EA have tried to make it easier to recreate some of footy’s most beautiful moments! They’re calling this quality new feature ‘Dramatic Moments’, and it means that slick through-balls, long-range screamers and epic volleys are all possible!

FIFA 18 – 5 FUT ICONS WE WANT TO SIGN!

FIFA 18...
5 FUT ICONS WE WANT TO SIGN!

EA have dropped more info about FIFA 18 ICONS for Ultimate Team. Check out the heroes included!

1.-Henry-image.jpg
1.-Henry-Cards.jpg

THIERRY HENRY

Henry’s best years were at Arsenal when his pace, dribbling and finishing made him the Prem’s best striker for years! He started his career at left wing though, and moved back there when he joined Barcelona!

2.-Ronaldinho.jpg

RONALDINHO

Every ICON will have three different versions from various stages of their career. Ronaldinho’s 94-card is from his peak years at Barcelona when his tricks, dribbling and creativity made him the best player in the world!

3.-Ronaldo-Image.jpg

RONALDO

FIFA fans have been crying out for the original Ronaldo to join FUT for years, and now he’s finally here! The Brazilian was devastating on his day, winning the Ballon d’Or in 1997 and 2002 – where his 96 and 94-rated cards come from!

4.-Pele-Image.jpg

PELE

Brazil’s all-time top scorer and arguably the best player in history is still the only player to win three World Cups! Pele’s performances in the 1970 victory are legendary, and that’swhy he’s bagged a 98-card. What a player!

5.-Maradona-Image.jpg

DIEGO MARADONA

Before Lionel Messi, Maradona was Argentina’s greatest ever player by far! He practically won the 1986 World Cup single-handedly, and did the same for Napoli in their only Serie A title wins in 1986-87 and 1989-90. Such a legend!

FIFA 18 UNCOVERED!

FIFA 18 UNCOVERED!

Some people still haven’t got used to FIFA 17, but that hasn’t stopped MATCH investigating what’s expected from FIFA 18 when it’s launched later this year! Get a load of all the mind-blowing rumours we’ve heard about the game! 

GRAPHICS

EA will be using the same Frostbite 4 engine seen on FIFA 17, so graphics aren’t expected to change that much! Gossips do predict sharper player movement and greater crowd detail, though!

GAMEPLAY

Due to Frostbite 4 being used again, gameplay won’t change massively either. Fortunately, some of the little problems with ‘17, like wrongful bookings and button delays, are likely to be tweaked. Yes!

COVER STAR

Marco Reus was on FIFA 17’s cover, but MATCH can’t see that happening again. After a stunning 2016, and with PES-makers Konami owning Lionel Messi’s image rights, spies think Cristiano Ronaldo is the big fave for FIFA 18!

THE JOURNEY

Gossips reckon The Journey will get even better on the next FIFA! Some believe you’ll be able to create your own Alex Hunter, while others predict FIFA 18 will focus on his international career. Ace!

SET-PIECES

Some people didn’t like the new set-pieces on FIFA 17, and we’ve heard EA will do something about it! They’ll either completely change it again, or go back to how set-pieces used to be!

VIRTUAL REALITY

On PS4 Pro and PC, VR is rumoured to play a small part in FIFA 18. Gaming experts have suggested first-person ref cam, a crowd camera, and even first-person Journey gameplay. That would all be awesome!
