Are you a fan of Icardi or Zlatan? You must have noticed something when playing FIFA 18. While the character models are incredibly well done thanks to the Frostbyte engine, there seems to be something off about them. You probably know by now what we’re referring to – missing tattoos.
The cause of the missing ink is actually a problem of intellectual property. The tattoo artists possess the rights to the tattoo designs. EA does not have the right to include these designs without agreement and possibly compensation of the artists. Studio 2K, who is behind the NBA 2K series, have included tattoos on their players in the past without the obtaining the rights to feature them and were subsequently brought to court and ordered to pay a sum of 1.1 million dollars.
