Starting today, Fifa 18 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 systems. Basically everywhere. Fifa 18 will bring the Ultimate Team experience as well as introduce Fut Icons. Alex Hunter will return for his second chapter in the franchise’s story mode - The Journey.
David Rutter, VP and GM of EA Sports said: "Today Fifa 18 will launch in more than 50 countries and 19 languages; I’ve never seen the team this proud to launch and I know fans will get many, many hours of enjoyment out of Fifa 18."
Players can continue the career of Alex Hunter in The Journey. This season Alex will take his "talents around the globe, with opportunities to play for world-class clubs including Atlético Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain FC, FC Bayern Munich, and LA Galaxy. Along the way Alex meets up with the star-studded cast including Antoine Griezmann, Thierry Henry, Dele Alli, Rio Ferdinand, James Harden, and more, as well as some surprising new characters and returning fan-favorites" says the press release.
The launch of Fifa 18 also marks the introduction of Fut Icons. Owners of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch can take the pitch with some of the greatest football legends of all time on their Fut roster. The roster includes Ronaldo Nazário, Diego Maradona, Ronaldinho, Pele and many more. Each of the Fut Icons will have three unique versions available, marking different moments in their careers.
Squad Battles is an all new single-player mode where the fans on PS4, Xbox One or PC can play against teams built by community members, influencers, and professional players.
Nintendo Switch version of the game will come decked out with modes like Career Mode, Ultimate Team, and Local Seasons where up to four friends can compete in head-to-head matches across two Nintendo Switch consoles. Fifa 18 for Nintendo Switch also boasts console-specific controls supporting a bunch of console configurations such as docked, handheld, and tabletop, as well as support for the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.
