VIDEO: FIFA 18 AND THE NEW JOURNEYDate: 2017-10-04
It is still one of the biggest game series around and Fifa 18 looks to build on the success of previous versions which have made the game what it is today.
Fifa 17 received the graphics upgrades and gameplay but also saw the start of Fifas story mode, The Journey. The Journey gave players the ability to follow the rise of young superstar Alex Hunter, adding an extra dimension to the game with the Frostbite engine. The Journey quickly received the headline-grabbing attention EA Games was after.
Of course, Fifa 18 carries on with the storyline right where 17 left off and will likely carry on in future editions, so follow the exciting Journey and feel as if you are part of the team. Cut-scenes are added into the game, such as an interview with Rio Ferdinand, an interaction with Cristiano Ronaldo as well as many others. This year's version offers a greater mix of the story itself and is a chance to be a part of a rising star's Journey in football.
Some fun news for Fifa 18 is that the crowd animations have been improved, something which was lacking in previous editions and, as you would also expect, the gameplay has seen some significant changes. The game has added focus on individual players attacking abilities, for example, players such as Ronaldo or Messi can pick the ball up dribble past defenders with ease and place their shot beyond the reach of the goalkeeper. You can now also make quick substitutions, which will be determined by both the players on and off the field.
Ultimate Team Online has made a comeback, it has all the previous editions options and Management mode has seen a significant upgrade. So, welcome to The Journey once again and enjoy!
