One of the most played video games in the world, EA Sport’s FIFA series is set to release its latest edition soon.

FIFA 18 is expected to hit stores worldwide on the 29th of September, and if you weren’t hyped enough, here are 3 reasons why you should be.

All-new Career mode

The career mode gets deeper than ever before in FIFA 18, thanks to the Frostbite engine. Buying players is much more interesting and visual, and involves cut-scenes of negotiations between managers, the player and his agent.

The menu is totally remodeled too, with the introduction of a Squad Hub. The Squad Hub provides information about status, stats, attributes and financial detail for the team’s players.

There’s also a new Breaking News segment on the home page, showing videos of latest new stories in a Sky Sports-esque style.

Better graphics, and fuller licensing

FIFA’s edge over its main rival, Pro Evolution Soccer, has always been its licensing, and that gets even bigger in FIFA 18.

There’s also been significant improvement on the match engine, and its obvious from how good the fans look in FIFA 18.
