With Lionel Messi signing a deal with Konami to promote Pro Evolution Soccer after featuring on the cover of FIFA 16, Cristiano Ronaldo has been signed by EA Sports as cover of the 2018 version of the FIFA game.
FIFA fans can already pre-order the ‘Ronaldo Edition’ of the new game, which costs £79.99 and features up to £40-worth of Ultimate Team packs as well as a Cristiano Ronaldo loan card and exclusive kits.
Ronaldo took part in a motion-capture session at their studio in Madrid to create the most accurate in-game likeness of the 32-year-old ever.
Cristiano is not the only Ronaldo to be featured in FIFA 18 as former Brazil star Ronaldo Nazario will also be available on Ultimate Team in the ‘Icon edition’ which are replacing FIFA 17’s legends and will be available on all platforms, not just Xbox.
The release date has been set for September 29.
