"Icon Stories" have been one of the more welcome and exciting developments to hit FIFA Ultimate Team's player pool in some time.
Taking the traditional "Legend" structure and evolving them in such a way to include not just one but three unique versions of each now "Icon", the new addition to FUT has been a widely celebrated one to say the least.
Though many of the Icons have long been known since their reveal back during FUT Live at the MLS All Star Game, we now know the rest of the Icons that'll make up the possibilities in FIFA 18 ... at least at launch.
In the video above, you can see three version of each of the 23 other as-to-yet-be announced 100% officially Icons, the two lower rated versions of which are expected to be in FUT 18 when the game launches. Because contractual situations are fluid, and the last two FIFAs have seen EA develop the ability to add as well as return players to the database after the fact, something tells me this isn't an open and shut case.
Regardless, as of the first few weeks and beyond of the new game, here's a complete list of all the FIFA 17 Legends who won't be making the transition to Icon at launch:
Ruud Van Nistelrooy
Juan Sebastian Veron
Frank De Boer
Ole Gunnar Solskjær
