The update for the 2018 World Cup in Russia for the FIFA 18 soccer game is now available . Since yesterday we can download it for free and enjoy the entire World Cup on our console or computer. We will be able to enjoy the 32 national teams qualified for the World Cup. Also of the official balls and the 12 Russian stadiums in which the matches will be played. All this with the Frostbite engine, which has made FIFA 18 one of the best football games.
This year, luckily for all of us who play FIFA, EA has decided to include the entire World Cup in Russia as an update to FIFA 18. And the best part is that, as we said at the beginning, it is completely free . Other years, as you well know, a special game was launched that only contained the World Cup in question. We wanted to test the update and tell you first-hand how it works and what it offers.
Downloading the update
The first thing to do is download the update . In our case we have done it with a PS4. On other systems the process will be the usual when downloading game updates. Something that, generally, is usually automatic.
The first thing we will need to play the World Cup in Russia in FIFA 18 is patience. The update, at least on PS4, occupies no less than 6 GB . So, if you have a slow connection, as is my case, it may take several hours.
What does the FIFA 18 Russia World Cup update offer us?
Once downloaded and installed, we will open the game to see the changes. As soon as we start the game we will see a notice with the news of the update. And when entering the game, we will have a new section in the main menu with the 2018 World Cup in Russia .
Upon entering the special section of the World Cup, the magic will begin. This will take us to a new menu, very similar to the main one, but completely set in the 2018 World Cup in Russia .
Among the options we will have to start the World Cup, play a quick match, enter a special FIFA Ultimate mode dedicated to the World Cup and play a friendly online.
The first thing we have tried is a quick match. As soon as we choose the teams we see that the atmosphere of the World Cup in Russia is total . The screen that you have at the top is the one that shows us the game just before the game starts.
Within the party the same. We have new signs, specially designed for the World Cup. There are no shortage of 12 official stadiums that will host the matches of the big event. All of them very well set, with banners of the national teams and the public in high resolution.
If we prefer to start the World Cup, the first thing we will have to do is choose our favorite team. We can play the World Cup in Russia in FIFA 18 with any of the 32 teams competing in the competition .
Another option is to play FIFA ULTIMATE, but set in the World Cup in Russia . When entering for the first time they will give us our first envelope and a first team. And, as in the normal format, we will have certain objectives to improve.
We can create our international squad with stars from the 32 qualified countries . No other players will be available. We will also have dynamic player items related to the real world tournament and the legendary FIFA World Cup icons.
In short, the folks at EA have prepared a great update for us . Now we can play the World Cup in Russia in FIFA 18 completely free of charge. Well done!
