EA Sports Confirmed The Release Date and Cover Star of FIFA 18

Posted time: Jun 06,2017


According to the announcement from EA Sports on Monday, June 5th, The Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo will feature on the cover of the huge football game FIFA 18, which will be released later this year. 

The accolades continue to roll in for Cristiano Ronaldo; fresh off winning La Liga and the Champions League, the Real Madrid star is now the face of the best-selling sports video-game franchise on the planet.

Ronaldo expressed his joy at a press conference saying "It is a real pleasure to be on the cover of FIFA 18.It’s a great feeling and I am grateful to have been chosen.”

EA Sports also confirmed on their official website there will be limited edition versions of the title released.

One of those is the "Icon Edition," which will allow players to use Brazilian football legend Ronaldo on loan for five matches in their Ultimate Team as well as his namesake for five games. It will also give purchasers access to the game three days before the worldwide release on September 29.

The Real Madrid's sharpshooter is making his first appearence on a FIFA cover, having previously appeared on the front of the 2008, 2012 and 2013 editions of Konami's rival Pro Evolution Soccer series.

He's not the first to headline games on both sides of the divide, with Arsenal legend Thierry Henry featuring on FIFA 2004 as well as starring on PES 4 and 5.

Lionel Messi has also featured for both, having made the cover for PES 2009, 2010 and 2011 before appearing on FIFA from 2013 through to 2016. He was among several Barcelona players included on PES 2017's cover.

Compared with Messi, who's a rating of 93, Ronaldo was the top-ranked player in last year's edition of FIFA with an overall base rating of 94.

With the forward now set to star solo on the cover—and having helped Real win a UEFA Champions League and La Liga double—he may well enjoy the same status on FIFA 18.

He also received a Team of the Year card in FIFA 17's Ultimate Team mode, which had a staggering maximum rating of 99. 

FIFA 18 will released on September 29 for all platforms including PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 systems. Welcome to order FIFA 18 Coins on igxe.com by that time!
