FIFA 18 Star Wars kit

Do you ever look at your FIFA 18 players and wish they looked like they were in incredibly lazy Star Wars cosplay? No, us neither, but here we are.

Ah, the marketing department and their love of the word ‘synergy’. You can just picture someone at EA suggesting they try some ‘brand synergy’ between Star Wars and FIFA 18.

Don’t you just hate them?

In any case, the net result is that we now have a FIFA 18 Star Wars kit, for some reason. [For synergy, of course! Haven’t you been keeping up? – Synergism Ed.]

Specifically it’s a Battlefield II-inspired Inferno Squad kit, available in both home and away variants. The home variant is effectively the Dark Side kit – make of that what you will – and it’s black with red trim, complete with a Darth Vader chest piece motif on the front. The away variant of the FIFA 18 Star Wars kit is the Light Side kit, in white, with Rebel Alliance medals on the breast.

But wait! There are more dubious treats in store for fans of EA’s marketing department inexplicably slapping Star Wars all over everything! [Yay! – Synergism Ed.]

There’s an NHL 18 Star Wars jersey, again available in both Light and Dark Side variants:

And there’s NBA Live 18 uniforms, in – you guessed it – Light and Dark Side variants:

All together now: brand synergy!
