It’s back (almost)! The world’s bestselling footballing series, FIFA, will return in September with the 2018 edition across all console and PC formats, and the early reviews from those that have had a sneak preview of the game suggest it could be the best yet.
To celebrate, JohnnyBet will once again be running our outstanding FIFA leagues across PS4 and PC, with the chance to win real cash prizes and other goodies for the best gamers around!
1. FIFA 18: What’s New?
Aside from a few subtle tweaks to the actual gameplay that are said to make FIFA 18 the most realistic iteration of the game to date, there is plenty more to suggest that this could be the most exciting football-based release in console history.
Alex Hunter is back, and this second instalment of The Journey adds new storylines and avenues for players to explore. This time Alex is fully customisable as well, so no two versions of the side game ever be the same. Can you lead your man to glory in The Journey: Hunter Returns?
EA Sports, the game’s developer, have introduced Icons in FIFA 18. This will allow you to play with some of football’s most legendary stars of yesteryear, including the Brazilian Ronaldo, Diego Maradona, Pele, Thierry Henry and more. The great news is that Ultimate Team Icons will also be released for players who prefer that game mode.
If you want to hone your skills ahead of entering the JohnnyBet FIFA leagues then why not give FUT Champions a try? This is an official online series of tournaments brought to you by EA Sports, and while no cash prizes are available these are a great way to work on your game ahead of playing for money with us!
Other popular features will return including TOTW and a revamped FIFA 18 Draft, so gamers across the great console divide (and PC) can rest assured that this year’s version of the game will continue the fine FIFA tradition.
2. Think You’re the FIFA King? Show Us!
Whether you prefer playing online against friends or against strangers in more serious competition, there’s no better way to enjoy FIFA than by joining a well-organised league set-up in an attempt to win real prizes.
That’s what JohnnyBet set out to do when we started our own FIFA tournaments back in 2016, and this year we’re ready to take things to the next level.
So what do you need to do to get involved? That’s simple. Just create an account with us, join your preferred league (standard PS4 or PC, Ultimate Team PS4 or Xbox One) and let us take care of the rest.
Our matchmaker software will create matches for you to accept, and the results from these are added to the Global Rankings. There is a monthly prize pool of $200 to play for too, so get practising!
FIFA 18 might not be released until September, but there is still time to get stuck into some FIFA 17 action in our leagues. So sign up today and get the ball rolling.
