With FIFA 18 finally releasing the world over on September 29, it seems that EA’s exclusive retail partner Amazon India has delayed orders of the game. The standard edition of FIFA 18 for PS4 and Xbox One will be available from October 3 according to Amazon’s listing page for the game as well as its customer support who have confirmed the same.
Those who pre-ordered the FIFA 18 Ronaldo Edition, which consists of the base game plus downloadable content (and costs Rs. 6,000), received their copies on the day it was intended – September 26.
Much like FIFA 16 and FIFA 17 it seems that Amazon India has not brought FIFA 18 in on time. Meanwhile smaller independent retailers have been selling standard and Ronaldo Editions of FIFA 18 at a higher price.
The reason why certain stores have had FIFA 18 early is due to a street date break in the UAE which occurred last week. This resulted in a flood of copies parallely imported or smuggled in. The price to consumers is between Rs. 3,800 to Rs. 4,300 depending on the store it’s bought from.A request for comment from Amazon India remained unanswered at the time of publishing this story.
For what it’s worth FIFA 18 is surprisingly good. With an improved story mode, polished visuals, and fluid gameplay, FIFA 18 is a solid upgrade over FIFA 17 and even its rival. Long-time fans may have trouble distinguishing these differences over past entries immediately, but the myriad of refinements results in what is possibly the most polished FIFA in recent memory.
