FIFA 18: EA is bringing back a seriously overpowered skill move

The Bridge dribble was absent from the last game

FIFA 18 will see the return of a new skill move, which wasn’t included in FIFA 17.

The Bridge dribble sees players knock the ball past the opposition before sprinting around them.

While a variant of the Bridge could be done in FIFA 17, it wasn’t quite the same – and saw the player simply knock the ball slightly further forward.

Although it’s unclear why EA removed the move from the last game, the Bridge opens up space easily, ultimately allowing for easier attacks.

This could be a ploy from the publisher to create more exciting games and chances on goal.

Some YouTubers, including FIFA vlogger MattHD Gamer, have demonstrated just how deadly it can be when performed correctly.

Earlier in the week, EA released a FIFA 18 gameplay trailer – showing off the game’s overhauled dribbling system.

New inclusions include the Bridge dribble, Zig Zag speed dribbling and the Explosive dribble.

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 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 I’d go for the cheaper option.

Just invest wisely and buy up players in the market who you feel will shoot up in value.
