Cristiano Ronaldo chosen for FIFA 18 cover
The superstar player will appear on the cover of this year's sports game
Electronic Arts has announced Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid C.F. as the global cover star of EA SPORTS FIFA 18.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s data was recently recorded during a training session at a mobile EA Capture studio in Madrid. Data capture of Ronaldo’s acceleration, run cadence, skills, and shooting technique were all recorded to bring veracity to his likeness and personality in FIFA 18.
A forward for both Real Madrid C.F. and the Portugal national team, Ronaldo is frequently regarded as one of the greatest players of all time. Ronaldo was named FIFA Men’s Player of the Year in 2016, and recently scored his 100th goal in European competition, the first player ever to do so. He is Portugal’s most-capped player, with 138 appearances for the national team, as well as Portugal’s all-time top goal-scorer. He has also won the coveted Ballon d’OR and the Golden Boot, among a multitude of other accolades.
Those who pre-order the Ronaldo Edition of FIFA 18 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One or PC will receive three-day early access, 20 jumbo premium gold packs (1 per week for 20 consecutive weeks), eight special edition FIFA Ultimate Team kits designed by artists on the FIFA 18 soundtrack and a Cristiano Ronaldo loan player for five FUT matches.
Fans can get their hands on the full game before launch day, with Ronaldo Edition and ICON Edition owners getting three-day early access, letting them start playing on Tuesday, September 26, while EA Access and Origin Access members can enjoy up to 10 hours of play time starting Thursday, September 21 as part of the EA Access and Origin Access Play First Trial.
FIFA 18 is developed by EA Vancouver and EA Romania and will be available worldwide on September 29 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 systems.
