FIFA 18 Is Getting A Free World Cup Update

This year EA will be patching the World Cup in to FIFA 18 rather than release a stand-alone title. The update, which will land on May 29th, includes all 32 teams, twelve Russian stadiums and all the official kits, badges, hair products, and yogurts (China’s second-biggest dairy firm, China Mengniu Dairy, is a sponsor).

You will be able to play in Friendlies or guide you team to World Cup glory, assuming you’re not playing as England. All the World Cup branding will be present along with a new ‘chemistry’ system which sounds very odd.

Instead of clubs and leagues, nationalities and confederations will be key chemistry components to consider when building and organizing your squad.

How does that work then? Brit players won’t play with the French? Scottish players won’t pass to an English player? No one will play with America or Russia?

  • All-New ICONS: FIFA World Cup Ultimate Team will feature some of the most iconic players from the tournament’s history.
  • Chemistry System: Link your favorite international players; instead of clubs and leagues, nationalities and confederations will be key chemistry components to consider when building and organizing your squad.
  • FIFA World Cup™ Player Pool: Featuring up-to-date squads from every qualified nation with refreshed ratings, [RA1] you’ll have everything you need to build your international dream squad.
  • Dynamic Items: Built to match real world performance, these items will update based on the performances of players who stood out on matchday, with upgraded stats, ensuring a fresh and relevant experience for the entire tournament.
  • Double Pack Incentive: For every Standard or Premium pack you purchase in FIFA World Cup Ultimate Team, you will receive equivalent pack value in FUT 18.
  • Ultimate Team Game Modes: Experience several exciting ways to play with your international dream squad.
    • Single Player and Online Tournament
    • Single Player & Online Draft
    • Squad Building Challenges

The update will be available to all FIFA 18 owners on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.

  1. Is this a paid update or is it free?

    • See those bigs words in white at the top of the page? Try reading them.

      • Hahaha.

        Seriously though, FUT is never really free. EA know how to make money from FIFA

  2. Awesome! Sadly would be on it for a week before heading out to a festival for a couple of days. But will be on it when I get home ^^

  3. Sweet. Didn’t expect to see Switch therw

  4. World Cup mode in 2014 was fantastic, hoping this matches it (key part: no transfer market).
