As reported last week. EA will be releasing free World Cup content for FIFA 18. This will be a a free content update in celebration of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. The update will go live on May 29 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
The update includes all the kits, stadiums, and badges for the official teams scheduled to play in the World Cup, as well as four major teams that didn't qualify. That means fans of the U.S. Italy, Chile, and Holland will still get to see them play in EA's fake World Cup even if they didn't qualify for the real one.

The new DLC comes off the heels of last week's leaks where several hints of EA's free FIFA 18 World Cup content were found online. That included retail store listings and photos of posters for the content that went up early. The biggest confusion was whether the content would be free or paid because previous World Cup content for EA's FIFA games were sold separately.
FIFA World Cup will also get an Ultimate Team update that includes World Cup icons, and players to build an international dream team of World Cup greats. Even from past World Cup games across history.
