WATCH: ‘The best game yet' – Premier League stars get schooled on FIFA 18

Leicester City and Crystal Palace players were among those in Asia getting a sneak peak of what many believe will be EA's greatest FIFA yet

A host of Premier League stars were given a treat in Hong Kong last week when they were invited to try their luck at the forthcoming FIFA 18.

Scheduled for release at the end of September, the latest in the series of the EA Sports smash hit is widely touted to be the best they’ve ever produced.

And Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez was the best on the day, defeating Crystal Palace’s Christian Benteke in a grand final at the Harbour View Renaissance Hotel.

“We have aimed to create the complete package of the beautiful game,” says creative director Matt Prior.

“The real player motion technology system is a whole new way of motion capture which makes the game feel that much more responsive.

“We have improved the crossing and also got a whole new dribbling system, which make it the best FIFA we’ve ever made.”

FIFA 18 will also include a second instalment of The Journey with Alex Hunter, while you'll also be able to play with FUT Icons such as Ronaldo Nazario, Maradona and Pele.
