Today, Xbox One owners can kick off a brand new season of the world’s game with EA Sports FIFA 18 ahead of its official launch on September 29 thanks to EA Access. Available exclusively on the Xbox console, EA Access members get FIFA 18 up to five days before anyone else.
Powered by the Frostbite game engine, and fueled by the world’s best player and back-to-back European Cup winner, Cristiano Ronaldo, see for yourself how football has changed. FIFA 18 includes data capture of Real Madrid star’s acceleration, skills, run cadence and shooting technique to bring complete accuracy to his likeness in game. With an all-new animation system, Real Player Motion Technology, FIFA 18 unlocks the next level of responsiveness and player personality, making top players like Ronaldo, Antoine Griezmann and others feel and move exactly like they do on the real pitch.
Fans on Xbox One will also be the first to experience the return of The Journey, continuing the story of Alex Hunter, who’s back for a second season with the chance to compete at some of the biggest clubs in world football including PSG, FC Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and LA Galaxy.
