FIFA 18: EA was hoping you didn’t spot these two little details in the trailer

EA thought we wouldn't notice but they were wrong

FIFA 18 marketing is now in full flow – with trailers released every week.

There’s so much information that it’s hard to keep track of it all – but look closely, and there are two details we bet you missed.

In the first Hunter Returns trailer, the Match of The Day cover reveals that Ones to Watch (OtW) will be making a return.

Last year, OtW items gave some of the world’s most high profile transfers dynamic ratings – which increased based on their Team of The Week performances throughout the season.

This could be good news for Arsenal new boy Alexandre Lacazette and Man United’s Romelu Lukaku.

But that’s not the only thing that FIFA 18 fans can look forward to.

There’s also a shiny new kit on show in the bottom left of the magazine cover – which suggests that could be on the way not far after launch.

So, how much will FIFA 18 cost?

FIFA 18 will cost around £49.99 – but given the demand, some outlets may undercut this.

We expect the cheapest the game will go for at launch to be around £45.

When will pre-orders start?

FIFA 17 pre-orders have kicked off now.

There are three editions: Ronaldo (Deluxe) and ICON (Super Deluxe) Editions. You can find more information by visiting the FIFA 18 website 

What is in each package?

Standard Edition

What package would you recommend?

Personally, I wouldn’t get tied up by Ronaldo loans etc. All many people will really care about is the game, so go for the cheaper option.

Just invest wisely and buy players in the market who you feel will shoot up in value – Ones to Watch is a good start.
