Each time the FIFA World Cup comes around, EA Sports releases a complete game based on the tournament. However, the company is taking a different approach for the 2018 World Cup. EA announced a free content update for EA Sports FIFA 18 will give players 2018 World Cup Russia content on May 29.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup update will include a tournament mode where players can take control of any of the 32 qualified national teams. Unqualified national teams already in FIFA 18 — including the U.S. — can also be substituted into the tournament for a chance to compete.
All 12 stadiums from Russia will be included in the update, as well as team kits, badges, the official World Cup ball and the Winner’s Trophy. Versions of the game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC will feature the official 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia broadcast package powered by the Frostbite engine.
In addition to online friendlies and tournament modes, the update will bring FIFA World Cup Ultimate Team to FIFA 18. The separate FUT mode will include athletes from all 32 qualified teams as well as World Cup icons. Coins and packs will be exclusive to the World Cup FUT mode, but players will receive an equivalent pack in FIFA 18 for every pack they purchase in World Cup FUT.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia update to FIFA 18 will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
EA also announced that the mobile edition of FIFA will also receive a limited-time 2018 FIFA World Cup update starting June 6.
