redwood city - Cristiano Ronaldo is the new face of the popular game series FIFA. The Portuguese sparkles in the first images launched by gamemaker EA Sports Monday. In addition, EA Sports announces on the official website that FIFA 18 will be performing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 29th.
