Authentic Presentation: The official 2018 FIFA World Cup RussiaTM graphic and broadcast package provides a genuine football experience that continues off the pitch, thanks to FrostbiteTM-driven cinematic scenes that keep you immersed long after the final whistle.
Why we care: As silly as it sounds, the game maker actually got this bet right for both the 2010 World Cup (Spain) and 2014 tournament (Germany), so it's not without some precedent that we might take this latest game-fuelled prediction seriously.
Further simulation results of the world Cup has shown that France in the semi-finals, beat Belgium (2:1), and in the final in the penalty shootout snatched victory over Germany.
A World Cup in Morocco would be "almost a European" tournament, the man leading the African nation's 2026 bid says.
Moreover, the 12 Stadiums are all featured, as is the official trophy and match-ball - with the graphics and broadcasting courtesy of the Frostbite engine taking the game's realistic feel to a whole new level.
Other game modes have also been added including a FIFA World Cup-themed Kick-Off mode and an expansion to the popular Ultimate Team mode.
Under new bidding rules, the task force has the power to disqualify a bid if it does not meet minimum technical standards, especially with regard to stadiums. This update should be available to download on the PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
You shouldn't have to do anything though, because the console should prompt you to install the new update - which has a still-unconfirmed file size - when you log on this evening.
Besides the two previous football world cups, EA Sports' Madden franchise has been able to successfully predict nine out of thirteen winners of NFL Superbowl.
Well, thankfully, today is the day that EA Sports launched their free World Cup add-on.
Meanwhile, the two greatest players on the planet, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, were knocked out in the last-16 with Portugal and Argentina respectively, while Brazil hammered Denmark 4-0.
EA Sports haven't specified a time just yet, but then, they never do for any of their updates.
