In anticipation of this year’s World Cup, which kicks off in a few weeks time, EA has added the tournament to FIFA 18 in its latest update. And it’s free!
The new mode is officially available to download now, and is encompassed within a patch that weighs in at 5.95GB. This hefty package bundles together the official stadiums dressed up for the World Cup along with a selection of Ultimate Team cards.
As we’ve previously reported, it isn’t only the World Cup mode that will be added. In addition to playing out the full and official tournament, you’ll also be able to create your own by selecting which teams from those that have qualified you’d like to compete; a custom tournament in a similar manner to, let’s say, the Premier League. And the matches will also be available for selection in the quick and simple Kick-Off Mode. So grab your boots, you’re on!
It’s certainly a nice gesture to see that despite the recent Loot Box antics, free can actually mean free. Now we just have to find the time to recreate the ’66 final; could the 50+ year wait finally be over? Not with this writer at the controls…
