Aside from the love for football, one other thing that men love all over the world is gaming. In Nigeria where the dominant sport is football, everyone has got to be excited for the new FIFA 18 which drops fully on September 29th, 2017.
It’s an exciting season in prospect and FIFA has added some features to make sure that their game stays enjoyable while also giving us the closest feel possible to a live game.
One of the features that have been added is “Real Player Motion”. Real player motion is a feature that was added to most major players and allows the players in the game to move as they do in real life. For example, you have Cristiano Ronaldo’s moving in the game like he does in real life. This is an amazing feature as it allows us to experience more realness in the game and we can tell the difference in players by way of their movement
Another awesome new feature is “More Goal Celebrations”. Popular goal celebrations have been added by FIFA. The likes of Paulo Dybala’s dab, Jesse Lingard’s dance, Pogba’s dab and a whole lot of others are now available. Some of these celebrations have been available in previous years but FIFA has made few tweaks to them. A typical example is the Griezman’s cellphone dance which can now be done by anyone, not just Griezman and it also involves another teammate dancing with him rather than all of them staring at him.
FIFA’s “The Journey” Returns.
The Journey is a story mode in FIFA which features a young star (Alex Hunter) and his rise in the football world. The journey returns this year with Alex Hunter on a larger world scale. Alex Hunter can now play in countries around the world not just in the English Premier League
FIFA’s Manager Mode”.
Many tweaks have been made to the manager mode and particularly in the area of transfers. Transferring players now feels more like real life negotiations. With immediate responses rather than the email method used in previous years and also more detailed contract terms including buyback clauses and trade payment clauses.
The gameplay in this year’s FIFA has been paid particular attention to by EA Sports. We’ve seen a more improved and fluid gaming – passing is now crisper allowing for midfield play, defending is more tasking which means more ecstasy when the ball is won, dribbling is also more fluid and goal scoring is more fun. All of the above adds to a pretty enjoyable gaming experience.
FIFA didn’t just add new features but they maintained the level of awesomeness that has brought them this far and made them the preferred choice amongst gamers in Nigeria and around the world
The lighting, pitch, graphics, AI, and many other things we love have also been enhanced to better our gaming experience.
