The game is another installment in the FIFA series. Electronic Arts introduced a lot of important changes in this follow-up, which will probably constitute a real treat for all the fans of virtual soccer. What is especially noticeable, is the introduction of the Real Players Motion technology that governs the appearances, animations and behavior of the in-game footballers. Although this technology encompasses mainly top players, the less-known footballers also behave in a more realistic manner, as the new system takes different factors into account, such as a footballer's height. The game brings a continuation to a story campaign from FIFA 17, embodied here by The Journey: Hunter Returns. FIFA 18 also brings a remodeled system of transfers in the career. The player is now capable of negotiating with clubs and particular footballers on their own. The FIFA Ultimate Team mode brings the Icon cards, representing legendary footballers. All of this is complemented by the use of the Frostbite engine, which mainly powers the cut-scenes displayed both in The Journey mode and the regular career component.
