The tournament edition for the video game will come in the form of a downloadable add-on rather than separate game – which has been seen in recent years.

It won’t be the first time FIFA have released a World Cup edition, having first done so in 1998 – releasing a new edition every four years.

The 1998, 2002 and 2006 editions were separate disk, but most recently – in 2010 and 2014 – fans were treated to a free add-on.

Recently a leaked image of FIFA 18 code showed up something called “Free FIFA World Cup Pack” – along with the usual FUT packs.
