EA Games releases Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 PC system specifications

Today, EA Sports' annually updated footie sim drops a 12-team sporting demo two weeks ahead of kick off.

Experience FIFA 18's Real Player Motion Technology, a groundbreaking animation system that unlocks a new level of realistic, responsive, and fluid gameplay.

The demo features 12 different clubs to choose from, ranging from Man United, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, and PSG to name but a few.

As much as the Federation Internationale de Football Association series might be one of a handful of annual sports games that mostly involve roster updates for each refresh, EA does have a few new features it's keen for everyone to try out in the new demo. There are also new "team styles", which let you use the same tactics that certain teams are well known for.

The stadiums promise to be stunning with high-res crowds, regionalised atmospheres and on-pitch graphics.

Lastly, the demo offers a preview the the next chapter in Hunter's story in The Journey, as he travels the world alongside a supporting cast featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, Antoine Griezmann, Thierry Henry, and new playable characters. The game will be arriving on the 19th of September on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, PS3, Xbox 360 as well as the Nintendo Switch.

"FIFA 18" will see a global launch this coming September 29, but EA earlier indicated that those who pre-order the Ronaldo edition of the game will get their hands on it three days earlier than the official launch with lots of freebies entwined.
