    Over the years the traditional Play Now/Kick-Off type modes have seen their audience shift to the more expansive modes that offer something in return for the time being committed to playing.

Coming May 29th (Xbox One, PS4, PC, Switch) the DLC will include the 32 nations that qualified for the tournament...
