EA kicked off their Gamescom conference with a new trailer showcasing gameplay for the football juggernaut that is FIFA 18. The 90 second trailer shows off the skills of Real Madrid’s Ronaldo, Atlético Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann and several other stars of the footballing world. 

FIFA 18 also features many improvements over last year’s game, including more fluid animations, and all-new crossing controls which help create more options for how you send the ball into the box. Other improvements include New Team Styles, which bring the tactics of the world’s best clubs onto the FIFA 18 pitch. Classic tactics like tiki-taka and high press give each team a different play style, which makes you adapt your own game in response. Players will also enjoy more time and space to read the play through New Player Positioning, while improved tactics give players greater options on the ball as teammates exploit space and make new attacking runs.

EA are also lauding an all-new animation system called Real Player Motion Technology, which they say is the biggest step in gameplay in FIFA franchise history. The system brings better responsiveness and player personality, with top players like Cristiano Ronaldo moving exactly like they do on the real pitch, apparently. Stadiums and crowds have also been overhauled, with the game featuring crowd banners and chants that better reflect the fans of the clubs featured, along with adaptive commentary and changes to the pitch, which help give the game a more authentic and immersive atmosphere. FIFA 18 also sees the return of Alex Hunter from the the single player story mode of FIFA 17, as it follows his fledgling career in The Journey: Hunter Returns. With the player now an established star, it looks like he’ll have more opportunities and hurdles to negotiate.

FIFA 18 is set to release in just a few weeks on 29th September for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

I’ve been addicted to gaming since my parents bought an Atari console way back in the 70’s. I progressed to the iconic Speccy, Amiga, and all the Playstation platforms. Having seen games evolve from single pixel bat and ball, to HD constructed environments, gaming has changed much from my early years. Having defeated the rock hard R-Type on the Speccy, the biggest challenge I’ve faced so far is putting up with the hordes of American teens spouting abuse in the current generation of consoles, noob indeed!
