With the arrival of this summer's World Cup tournament in Russia, Electronic Arts is veering from one of its soccer game mainstay.

For the first time, EA has opted to not release a standalone World Cup game and will instead release a free update for its most recent yearly soccer game, Federation Internationale de Football Association 18.

The new competition would run parallel to existing worldwide tournaments such as the European Championship, Copa America, and African Nations Cup, plus the World Cup qualifying stages.

The overhaul of global football would herald the end of the mostly unloved Confederations Cup that functions as a warmup event for World Cup host nations. In FIFA World Cup Russia 2018, players will revel in the epic tournament exactly how it will play out in real life. The matches of the 2018 World Cup will be held between June 14 and July 15, 2018, at 12 stadiums located in the 11 above-mentioned cities across Russian Federation. It's a nice touch, and one that will keep players in countries who didn't qualify involved during the heat of the tournament itself.
