FIFA 18 owners will get to play the FIFA World Cup game mode without spending a single penny. The game's publishers, EA Sports, will be rolling out the World Cup update for free and anyone with the original game can simply download and play.

To recall, FIFA 18, which released on September 29 last year, received a lot of flak for FUT (FIFA Ultimate Team) mode which essentially became a pay-to-win game mode. A free licensed World Cup game mode may just make a lot of these disgruntled fans happy. Traditionally, EA has brought out World Cup games as separate paid titles.

The World Cup update will be available from May 29 and will be less than 47GB in size. The update will come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.

"The 2018 FIFA World Cup update will deliver a complete and official tournament experience through official including authentic teams, stadiums, kits, badges, official match ball and the official winner’s trophy," EA Sports said in an official statement. All 12 official stadiums playing host to the event will be included along with current rosters of all the national teams taking part in the World Cup.

You can also choose any licensed team in Fifa 18  which are already there — such as Italy, USA, Netherlands or Chile ( Teams which have not qualified for World cup) and take them to World Cup glory by creating your own tournament draw.

The FIFA World Cup gets underway from June 14.
