In a rare, customer-first move by Electronic Arts, EA Sports announced last night that instead of releasing a standalone FIFA World Cup game as they do every time the world’s largest sporting event comes rolling in, FIFA 18 will be receiving the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia update instead. For free!

While not much info was revealed apart from its release date, we expect to see special World Cup mode in it, along with a ‘Road to World Cup’ which allow players to take their favorite nations from the qualifying rounds, all the way to Russia. Fans of Italy won’t wanna miss it!
We are also expecting a World Cup Ultimate Team mode for those who play FIFA solely on that highly addictive mode.
