Electronic Arts takes a lot of shit from a lot of people for many of its business practices. So its decision to just give away a big FIFA 18 World Cup update—something they used to charge for—is a pleasant surprise.
FIFA 18 will get a free World Cup update on May 29 on Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC. It includes online tournaments and a World Cup Ultimate Team mode, as well as a custom mode in which you can create your own World Cup team from scratch.
Loot boxes in FIFA 18, Overwatch, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive are now illegal in Belgium, with the country’s legislators declaring today that if the games’ publishers don’t remove the offending microtransactions, people behind the games could face fines and even time behind bars.

EA Sports FIFA 18 on Nintendo Switch (yes that’s what Nintendo’s calling it) will include all the stuff FIFA games normally have minus the Alex Hunter story mode hyped at today’s EA event.
