​EA Sports are in that phase right about now where they need to get everybody hyped for the next installment in the FIFA franchise.

FIFA 18 will be officially released in the UK on September 29th, so expect the drip tactics to be in full force for the next two months.

On Wednesday, EA uploaded a 360° video of them working with Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be the game's cover star for this year.

Ronaldo can be seen dressed in a motion capture suit being directed to take one of his signature free-kicks, complete with deep breath and 'I'm the man' goal celebration - you know how it goes.

The 360° style allows the viewer to watch Ronaldo from all angles and, rather cleverly, EA also put the game equivalent (real time) at the side to see how his movements translate.

It was a pretty good strike from CR7, who appeared to have blasted the ball into the top left corner - something which doesn't happen all too often these days for the superstar from free-kick situations.
