E3 2018: FIFA 18 Gets Free Trial On All Platforms Following New World Cup Mode
FIFA 18 is still kickin’ around.
FIFA 19 wasn't the only game in the franchise that got a mention at E3 2018. During the company’s press conference, EA announced that FIFA 18 is getting a free trial after the recent release of a new mode to celebrate the upcoming World Cup.
The recent update adds a World Cup theme to the base game. Players can still play as whatever team they want, regardless of whether or not a team even qualified for the World Cup. However, the crowds in the stadium will only have new chants in response to which teams did.
To make sure everyone has a chance to play World Cup mode, EA is releasing a free trial of FIFA 18. The trial is coming to Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch. It will only be available for a limited time, but EA gave no indication as to when the trial will officially end.
FIFA 18 was received well at launch; we awarded the sports game a 7/10 in our FIFA 18 review. "It's off the pitch that EA excels," we said. "From the variety of game modes on offer and how everything's presented, to the constant updates in FUT's Team of the Week, Daily Objectives, and discussion of real-world happenings in commentary, FIFA 18 captures the world of football and confidently translates it into a video game. On the pitch, however, EA's soccer series is still lagging far behind PES 2018's more fluid, satisfying football. This year's improvements are welcome, but more needs to be done in the coming years if FIFA is to be a world-beater once again."
