It’s getting closer.
EA have been teasing us with details of FIFA 18 for a while now, and they are showing no sign of stopping.
On Tuesday they released game play footage of Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo’s famous heel chop courtesy of a 360 degree video.
The clip shows the Portuguese winger replicate his trademark move for the game, complete with the classic black suit.
If you glance to one side of the video you can see his heel chop in real life, with the other side showing what it will look like in FIFA 18 itself- and it looks impressive.
Not long to wait now.
Hit the video to watch Ron leave defenders in his wake:
EA is doing another closed beta this year – due to kick off around August 18.
Select members of the FIFA community – from YouTubers to professional gamers – will be invited to play on the game and submit feedback.
But there’s an outside chance you could get in on the action, too.
To give yourself the best shot, you’re going need to have an EA account – then, head to email settings and check the box that says you want to receive promotional materials.
If you’re lucky enough to receive an invite, you’ll be able to play an early version of the game.
It’s worth mentioning that the screen will feature a watermark – complete with your gamer tag. This is to stop you from taking screen shots or streaming the game – both of which will result in account ban.
For those who can’t get their hands on the closed beta then you’ll have to wait for the demo, which drops a few weeks later.
Who will be the best player on the demo?
The best player on the demo will be FIFA 18 cover star Cristiano Ronaldo – although his rating on the preview build was TBC.
So, what did you think of it when you had a go?
We’re very impressed – it’s slower than FIFA 17 but that’s no bad thing. Plus, it looks spectacular – especially on PS4 Pro.
