EA Sports FIFA 18 Cover Athlete Revealed

It’s been a magical week for Cristiano Ronaldo, arguably the worlds best soccer player has been taking strides lately to try and secure the title away from the equally Lionel Messi. After helping Real Madrid secure the Champions League Trophy for the third time in four years, Ronaldo was announced as the new face of the EA Sports FIFA Soccer franchise for 2018.

Despite being among the elite in world soccer for several years, this is Ronaldo’s first appearance on the title.

Sporting ultra-realistic graphics, FIFA 18 looks like a worthy successor to one of the most beloved video game franchises.

Check out the trailer below.

Stunning in its realism. However, and call me a skeptic here, I’ve learned not to get too high sports video game trailers that don’t include actual gameplay footage.

It’s understandable, the actual gameplay isn’t as entertaining to watch as the carefully animated sequences that we see in this trailer. However, without having seen or played the actual game, it’s best to temper expectations.

FIFA is one of the most reliably excellent titles in the EA Sports stable, and you can be sure they’re going to bring the goods. Probably won’t look like that trailer, though.

Think Messi has watched it? Think it made him jealous?
