There is no doubt this summer’s World Cup in Russia promises to be one of the biggest and best tournaments yet with some very tasty looking games – which includes Nigeria’s Group D matches against Croatia and Argentina – scheduled for June and July. However according to EA Sports, gamers can now get a feel of how the Super Eagles defence would try to curb the advances of a Lionel Messi-inspired La Albiceleste at the tournament.
According to the video game maker, a downloadable FIFA 18 World Cup mode will be released on Tuesday, May 29 and as such will let players pick any of the 32 qualified nations to attempt to win the tournament using players who will be involved in Russia this summer. In a statement announcing the release, the company said, the 2018 FIFA World Cup update will deliver a complete and official tournament experience through its authentic teams, stadiums, kits, badges, official match ball and the official winner’s trophy.
Also, downloading the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia expansion will be very easy to acquire on Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. It will come as a patch for the existing game, which should automatically download when the game is started. Although the download size of the expansion has not been revealed, however, it will surely be less than the 47GB size of the full FIFA 18 game.
Nigeria undoubtedly has one of the nicest set of kits in the tournament and with the team’s relentless attacking playstyle, there is no doubt Nigeria will be a lot of fun at the mundial.
