FIFA 18: New video shows awesome change to crossing

Whipped crosses will now be even easier to pull off

FIFA 18 may be some time away but that’s not stopping EA from releasing some more details about the gameplay.

In the latest FIFA 18 video, the publisher shows off the revised crossing mechanic – which looks and feels different to FIFA 17.

The key difference is down to the weight of the ball – allowing for more curl and precision.

Whipped crosses are now far easier to perform – whole there’s plenty more mid-end bend, making it easier for you to feed the ball in to the path of another player.

It’s also incredibly different to PES 2018 -which feels as though there isn’t as much mid-air curl when whipping the ball in.
