Electronic Arts has announced that EA Sports FC 24 will release on September 29th (as rumors indicated). It will be available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. Check out the first “gameplay” trailer below.
EA touts over 700 teams and 30 Leagues, and more than 19,000 licensed players. It features HyperMotionV, which “uses volumetric data from 180+ pro men’s and women’s matches to ensure movement in-game accurately reflects real-world action on the pitch.” PlayStyles essentially interprets “data from Opta and other sources into signature abilities which heighten the realism and individuality of each player.”
Ultimate Team returns as Ultimate Team Evolutions, with women’s footballers joining the field. There’s also Manager and Player Career and cross-platform play in Clubs and VOLTA Football. Of course, it wouldn’t be an EA Sports title without the option to purchase virtual currency.
The Standard Edition for Xbox, PlayStation and PC retails for $69.99, while the Ultimate Edition costs $99.99. On Nintendo Switch, the Standard Edition is $59.99 and will be the first EA Sports title on the platform to run on Frostbite Engine.
