Former Barcelona and Brazil superstar Ronaldinho is getting the legend treatment in FIFA Ultimate Team ICONS, EA Sports has revealed.
The new version will give fans the chance to play as some of the game’s greatest ever players. They include Ronaldo, Lev Yashin, Rio Ferdinand, Diego Maradona and Pele.
And that will be improved by the fact that each of those legends will have three different versions in FIFA 18, selected from significant stages of the careers of the players.
Players will be able to pick up, for example, Thierry Henry when he was a youngster at Monaco, during his incredible 2002 season or when he was about to leave Arsenal for his move to Barcelona.
In a boost to the eSports aspect of FIFA, a Champions Channel has been included allowing players to watch full replays from the world’s best players.
Other features announced on Tuesday night include the new Squad Battles mode.
Squad Battles, which is a single player mode, lets a player take on other squad from the community, move up the leaderboards and earn rewards.
Pack opening has been given an overhaul courtesy of the Frostbite game engine. There are also new objectives which are dynamic and can run over a day or week.
New squad building challenges have also been included in FIFA 18. They now add combined player requirements and brick slots that will improve the challenge for the elite player.
