It was announced at the conclusion of the 2017 FIRST Global Challenge that the 2018 Challenge would be held in Mexico City.

The 2018 FIRST Global Challenge game is Energy Impact.

The game was based off of the Grand Engineering Challenge of Making Solar Energy Economical.

Alliances of 3 teams will have to use four power generators to score points. Robots can transport "solar panels", spin their "wind turbine", bring cardboard cubes (Fuel Cubes) in the "combustion plant"'s high and low goals as well as filling up their shared "reaction plant". 3 of the 4 generators also have to be plugged in by transporting a Power Line Cube (a blue or red colored cube) to the alliance Power Station. At the end of the match, teams get bonus points for parking on a platform. Teams can also get a coopertition bonus by connecting the Coopertition Power Line if both alliances bring one of their Power Line Cubes to the opposing Power Stations. Teams will be ranked by ranking points (2 for win, 0 for loss) in the first round - the top 24 (or 36) teams will advance to a final round, where the country with the highest accumulated score will win the Gold Medal.
