EA sports released the latest trailer for FIFA 18, a teaser of what’s to come when they unveil the game in full at their EA Play event in Los Angeles, California this weekend to kickoff the E3 festivities set to take place next week. The trailer for the game reveals that it will be available on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC starting September 29th later this year.
The game will be running on DICE’s coveted Frostbite game engine, making use of the latest in lighting, fluid, and animation systems afforded by the technology. They make it known in the trailer that the footage in the teaser is all in-engine, and gamers can expect a similar level of fidelity when the game launches this fall.
The trailer features Madrid’s premier superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, getting the penalty kick and having a bit of the spotlight shinned on his sweating forehead.
It’s pretty obvious they really wanted to highlight just how detailed the Frostbite can get in the up-close and personal shots.
EA also wasn’t shy in linking to the pre-order page where gamers can pre-order three different editions of FIFA 18 before they even revealed the actual gameplay!
Yes that’s right, folks, you can pre-order a game well before you even have any idea as to what it looks like in action.
EA will rectify the lack of gameplay come June 10th, but it’s still pretty ridiculous that they would open up pre-orders before anyone even knows anything about the actual game. Additionally, they’re selling gamers on the idea that they can gain three days of early access by pre-ordering either the Ronaldo Edition or the Icon Edition from their website.
It seems typical these days from an AAA publisher that they’re more concerned with selling you stuff before you even know what stuff it is they’re trying to sell you.
Anyway, you can expect to see the game on store shelves and digital outlets come September 29th for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
