Paul Pogba is the Cover Star of FIFA 18

EA’s FIFA 18 is releasing later this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and other platforms. The developer is yet to discuss the title but it will at EA PLAY in June. However, we can now confirm that Paul Pogba is the new cover star for FIFA.

He will be on the cover this year replacing Marco Reus. The cover had been dominated by Messi over the years over the last few years we have seen EA go with other options. Paul Pogba French professional footballer who plays for Premier League club Manchester United and the France national team. He plays as the central midfielder and can handle both defensive and attack positions.

EA PLAY livestream, which will cover the EA Play presentation, will take place on June 10, at 12 p.m. Pacific Coast Time, or at 3 p.m. Eastern Time. EA will be showing off its upcoming games at the show.


EA PLAY date puts EA three days ahead of the start date of E3 2017, giving it plenty of time to get ahead of the rest of the crowd. Exactly how far ahead, however, depends on when other big publishers and studios are going to want to hold their own conferences. FIFA fans would know that for different regions, there are different cover stars. So while we are not sure about the region-specific box art stars, we will definitely keep you posted once we hear more about them.

According to EA CEO Andrew Wilson, FIFA 18 will once again feature The Journey with new characters and storylines. The story mode was first featured in FIFA 17 and is received well by the community and the critics. EA will continue to make improvements to the story mode with each new installment for the game.
