Russia's 12 stadiums will be shown off in all their glory, giving fans the fully immersive World Cup experience.

But chants within the stadiums will only be for the teams that have qualified.

And the 32 teams featuring in the real-life tournament will have their national team banners featured in amongst the high resolution crowds, so users can still be patriotic.
