FIFA 18: There’s a way of making Ronaldo a manager in the game

Fed up with default avatars? Then this is for you

FIFA 18 gamers can play as Brazilian legend Ronaldo as a manager.

The star, who is one of the ICONS cards, has been added to the roster ‘unofficially’ by a team of modders.

They’ve created a file for the PC version of the game that, once downloaded, reskins the default avatars with the Brazilian.

Tons of new FIFA 18 files have made their way on to Modding Way – a site dedicated to tweaking and improving EA’s latest title.

They allow gamers to play Career Mode as Jose Mourinho, Zinedine Zidane, Jurgen Klopp and many more.

Instead of the random avatar, these new ‘re-skinned’ models will take their place in the transfer negotiations and cutscenes – allowing for much more realistic experience.

Amazingly, the site even gives gamers the ability to play as legends who are yet to try their hand at management.

This includes the likes of John Terry, Thierry Henry and Francesco Totti.

Modding Way is a website that lets skilled gamers upload their very own tweaks, or ‘mods’, to FIFA.

Mods are essentially changes to the game’s original code.

These range from minor upgrades to the graphics – adding more realistic grass, for example – to completely overhauling core game mechanics.

The downside is a lot of these mods only work on the PC version of the game – so those playing on PS4 and Xbox One will still be stuck with the random avatars.
