If you love playing football, either in the real world or in the virtual world, then you can not ignore the charm of FIFA video game. Developed by the Electronic Arts, FIFA is hailed as one of the best soccer-based video game ever made and the latest edition, the FIFA 18 is due to release in a month’s time, more precisely on 29th September. Apart from the new modes and features, every year the fans eagerly wait to know which superstar has donned the cover of an upcoming edition. And this year, the developers have chosen Cristiano Ronaldo as the FIFA 18 Cover Star.
FIFA 18 Cover Star: Different Superstars to Grace the Cover of Different Editions
This year, EA Sports is going to release three different editions of the game, the Standard Edition, the Ronaldo Edition and the Icons Edition. The Portuguese superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo has been nominated as the prestigious cover star of the Standard and Ronaldo Edition of FIFA 18. Cristiano enjoyed a phenomenal season last year- won the Euro Cup with his national team and the UEFA Champions League with his club Real Madrid for the consecutively second time. Not only that, on both occasions, CR7 played the most pivotal role for his team and scored the lion’s share of the goals for both his club and country. A strong contender to win this year’s ‘Ballon D’ Or’ or the ‘Best Footballer of the Year’ award; there is no doubt about his selection as the FIFA 18 cover star.
On the other hand, EA has chosen Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima as the cover star of the third edition of the FIFA 18, the Icons Edition. The two-times World Cup winner Ronaldo is famously known as the ‘El Phenomeno’ for his incredible dribbling skills and goal scoring abilities. He is truly a legend of the game and thus has rightfully been chosen for the cover star of the Icons Edition.
Not only that, one of the most attractive features of the FIFA 18 is the ‘Ultimate Team’. And EA has selected three different superstars as the FIFA 18 Ultimate Team cover stars. Bayern Munich superstar Thomas Muller is one of the three players along with the latest French sensation Antoine Griezmann and English starlet Dele Alli.
The main motto of selecting Cristiano Ronaldo as the FIFA 18 Cover Star is to promote the game and to make the game more popular even to those set of audiences who have never played the video game before. And we are sure EA has been successful to spread the game as FIFA 18 has registered a record number of pre-orders already. So what are you waiting for?
