EA Sports has vowed to update all the squads in the World Cup mode, after a barrage of complaints from FIFA fans shortly after launch.
It didn’t take long for gamers to spot that most squads in the free World Cup update were out of date – and they soon voiced their frustration at the EA Sports Twitter handle.
Argentina only has 15 correct players in the update, while – amazingly, England’s squad includes the likes of Joe Hart and Jack Wilshere who didn’t even make Gareth Southgate’s stand-by list.
However, speaking to Dream Team, Andrei Lazarescu – the senior producer on the World Cup Update – has vowed to put things right.
“All the squads we have in the game now are based on the qualifiers” he said.
“These will still change before June 14th and we will provide a regular roster update throughout the tournament.”
He added: “In Ultimate team, every item is Live item. They will all seem better than what you’ve been used in the core version.”
Available as a free download, the FIFA 18 World Cup expansion features all teams in the tournament, as well as all the stadiums.
So, we couldn’t resist seeing how well England would do. See how they got on here
As well as a solo mode, which lets you take a team from the group stage to the final in Moscow, you’re also able to create your own Custom Tournament draw.
A revised Ultimate Team mode will let you build your dream World Cup team as well as see the introduction of World Cup Icons.
All 12 stadiums from Russia are included in the update – as well as pitch environments, advertisements, dressings, national team banners and high-resolution crowds.
To ensure the most realistic experience possible, the official World Cup graphic and broadcast package has also been replicated in-game, while Frostbite-driven cinematic scenes keep you immersed long after the final whistle.
Elsewhere, a new chemistry system provides different ways to link your favourite international players.
Instead of clubs and leagues, nationalities and confederations will be key chemistry components to consider when building and organising your squad.
All squads from every qualifying nation will be up-to-date with refreshed ratings, while dynamic World Cup Items will be released to match real-world performance.
Finally, for every Standard or Premium pack you purchase in World Cup Ultimate Team, you will receive equivalent pack value in FUT.
Phew, that’s a lot of content!
