WATCH: FIFA 18 reveal trailer features Cristiano Ronaldo
Real Madrid’s all-time top scorer and back-to-back European Champion, Cristiano Ronaldo will be the face of EA Sports’ FIFA 18 going to be launched worldwide on September 29.
To deliver innovation in 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.
His data also informed important gameplay elements including fluidity, player responsiveness and explosiveness.
“We set him up in the famous EA Sports motion capture suit and meticulously recorded his every movement to bring Ronaldo’s every attribute to FIFA 18. From his explosive acceleration and those famous chop moves to that unique running style and lethal shooting technique, you’ll see all of this data come to life in how players move, behave and interact when you get your hands on FIFA 18 on September 29th, or sooner. But more to come on that in a minute…,” said FIFA Content Manager EA SPORTS Jon Cole.
A player this great deserves something special too: the FIFA 18 Ronaldo Edition. This gives you a bunch of great pre-order offers, including a CR7 starter item in FUT, up to $60 worth of Jumbo Premium Gold Packs and three days early access to FIFA 18, allowing you to play from September 26, he said.
Jon Cole also announced a surprise addition to FIFA 18 which will be made later this year to PS4.
“For the first time, we can also announce that some of the most iconic footballers in the history of the game are coming to FIFA Ultimate Team on PS4, headlined by one of the players I idolised growing up: Ronaldo Nazario.
“The legendary Brazilian was one of the most gifted, prolific, explosive and dynamic strikers to ever play the game, and this year you’ll be able to pair him and Cristiano Ronaldo to terrify opposition defenders in FUT,” he said.
