FIFA 18 may have been out a few months but gamers are still discovering quirks and secrets.
One of the most interesting additions to this year’s game resides in The Journey: Hunter Returns – but chances are you missed it as EA Sports didn’t make a song and dance about it.
In a quest to make the campaign more personal than ever before – and to give the player more freedom with lead character Alex Hunter, EA lets gamers express Hunter’s emotions on the pitch.
A tap of the d-pad will see the young star taunt fans and players – if they’re giving him a hard time.
You’re even able to dance in the middle of the pitch or tell the crowd to calm down.
It’s a lovely feature and one that, for many of us, would have been undiscovered.
Elsewhere in FIFA 18, fans are gearing up for the Team of The Year, which is set to be unveiled in January.
Chosen players will receive huge upgrades – often rocketing their scores well into the 90s.
Last year’s Cristiano Ronaldo card was the highest scoring in the game – with an enormous 99 rating.
There’s no word yet about how this year’s team will be decided, although we should hear something at the start of next month.
FIFA 18 cover star Ronaldo’s place in the team is almost guaranteed – after all, it would be a political nightmare for EA to omit the Real Madrid star.
On paper, though, the Portuguese has struggled to emulate the form that guided him to the Balon D’or earlier in the year – and has only recently showed glimpses of his best.
Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski are two other players almost certain to nab spot in the coveted squad.
