It's all in your imagination
EA must have been feeling pretty generous when it deployed the free World Cup update to FIFA 18 - the company has, in previous years, made the most of the licence by releasing stand-alone World Cup titles. While the update has gone down as a very welcome addition to the game, some players have voiced the opinion that...
What, no "Road to the World Cup" edition?
Those of you with long memories will no doubt recall that, once upon a time, EA never missed a trick when it came to milking the lucrative FIFA licence. As well as the yearly FIFA updates we'd also get special editions, such as FIFA: Road to World Cup '98 (which took the place of the yearly entry for...
Back of the net
Electronic Arts has just pushed out a large update for FIFA 18 which fixes a wide range of issues and bugs present in the title. Here's a comprehensive list of everything that's changed: Addressed the following issues in Gameplay: + The FIFA Trainer Shot Elevation arrow was resetting its extension after shooting the ball. + The...
A score draw
FIFA 18 has been out for over a week, and it's been interesting to watch the reaction to its release. On the one hand it's earned plenty of praise for what it achieves as a portable entry in the franchise, while on the flipside it's tempting to look at modes and features that are missing in comparison to other current-gen versions...
Go on, make your faceless corporation jokes
FIFA 18 launched on Switch last week, and plenty of eyes will be on the performance of the 'custom' version on Nintendo's portable powerhouse. We liked it in our review, with yer man Scullion awarding it 8/10. However it appears that the game has a rather quirky glitch on some occasions, as you will see...
Jumpers for goalposts
FIFA 18 launches today, but EA has been curiously reluctant to show off very much of the Switch version; aside from off-screen footage recorded at events like this year's Gamescom, we've been unable to pick apart the Nintendo version's visuals to see just how favourably they compares to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One editions...
Which is nice
FIFA 18 launches this week, and while the Switch version lacks some of the key features of its console counterparts, it does have at least one exclusive item which your Sony and Microsoft-owning chums won't be getting. A screenshot has emerged which shows an exclusive Switch kit which can be unlocked in the game. The red shirt comes...
"I hope we get there, that would be my personal ambition."
The Nintendo Switch has got off to a great start so far, with a growing install base, quality first party games and solid indie support on the eShop. Nevertheless the third-party retail line-up has been rather thin; while SEGA's Puyo Puyo Tetris and Capcom's Ultra Street Fighter...
Taking to the pitch on the Switch
After a notable absence from Nintendo platforms, FIFA is finally making its return to a Nintendo home console. The last ‘current-generation’ release a Nintendo console has seen was as a Wii U launch title all the way back in 2012 in FIFA 13, though a few entries with minimal updates did arrive on 3DS and Wii in...
"We love the mobility of the Switch"
The nature of the Switch hardware means it'll be approached in different ways by various developers; as far as EA is concerned, the system is primarily a portable. That's been the pitch for FIFA 18 on the system, a bespoke iteration that'll supposedly be the most 'advanced' portable entry in the series. To a...
"It's the best portable FIFA we ever did"
FIFA 18 is EA's first title for the Nintendo Switch, and as you might imagine, it's getting a lot of attention as a result. FIFA is one of gaming's biggest global brands and by bringing the series to Switch, the publisher is certainly making a statement. However, there are already doubts regarding how the...
Will include something called "Switch Kick Off", too
We've known for a few days that FIFA 18 on Nintendo Switch won't use the Frostbite engine or include the Alex Hunter story mode, but now a new official page shows us what the game will include. The big pitch is that it'll be the leading 'portable' version of the game, and it will include FIFA...
Sports! Shooting stuff! More sports!
For a number of years EA press conferences have carried little interest for Nintendo fans, but this year there might be something to see. FIFA 18 is the only current EA game confirmed for Switch, and it'll be interesting to see whether it's shown in any form, and whether any other games (perhaps...
At least the name is settled
EA has carried out a promotional blitz for FIFA 18, unveiling Cristiano Ronaldo as its cover star along with a glitzy trailer. Details are thin, but when you look at small print and listings you can cut through the fluff and learn a little about how the game will shape up. First of all, it'll be FIFA 18 on Switch,...
