World Cup Russia is a free expansion for FIFA 18, and it allows you to play through one of the most popular football tournaments in the world. This expansion has a competitive tournament mode, updated stats for the players, eye-catching crowd mechanics, and brand new stadiums. You will be able to recreate all of the most iconic moments from the World Cup in Russia with your favorite teams and players. For fans of FIFA, this is a must-have expansion.

From the moment that you open the game, you are going to notice a wide variety of changes. You can start each tournament off by choosing your favorite team and then rearranging your roster. Once you have the perfect roster, you can jump right into the World Cup tournament. Unfortunately, players can’t work their way through the qualifying matches or play as any teams that didn’t qualify for the World Cup. That being said, the updated roster and stats in World Cup Russia have given FIFA 18 a fresh feel.

During the matches themselves, there are dozens of new features and updates. Each individual country has its own personalized fans, and those fans will react to everything that you do down on the field. When you score a goal or make a great play, they will chant for their favorite football players or make fun of the other team. If you lose the ball or miss a shot, then your crowd is going to become sullen and quiet. Every nation also has its own custom soundtrack that can be altered in the settings. All of those updates and upgrades add a little more depth to an already great game.

Another exciting feature that got added to this expansion is the fresh commentary. Martin Tyler and Alan Smith have returned to FIFA 18 as the two primary commentators, and all of their phrases were updated to reflect some of the events that led up to the Russia World Cup. They will comment on player injuries, trades, and rumors that were being spread at the time. Tyler and Smith even make remarks about different rivalries between various teams and players.

If you are a fan of the FIFA franchise, then this expansion is for you. It has added hours of extra gameplay and some eye-catching cosmetic updates. You have the option of battling it out with advanced AI-controlled teams or heading online to play against other people. Either way, the FIFA 18 World Cup Russia expansion is sure to provide you with hours of fun.
