Additional Updates

Gameplay

  • We’ve introduced a new skill move called the Double Touch Lane Change that’s sure to be a hit with players who love to dazzle on the pitch with their technical prowess. This addition comes later in the calendar, but it’s definitely worth the wait for those who thrive on skillful play.
  • We’re bringing a new celebration to the game. Inspired by Cole Palmer’s standout season at Chelsea, this celebration can be executed with Cole Palmer across Kickoff, Career, and Football Ultimate Team modes. For those look

Star Heads

  • Title Update #16 brings 27 new player star heads to EA SPORTS FC 24. You can expect to see improved likenesses of players across the Premier League, including players like Rodri, Sven Botman, Pedro Porro and Eberechi Eze.

Manager Career

    • Over the course of your Manager Career you will be able to scout Youth Prospects with 90+ potential and seven PlayStyles. Such players that came through your Youth Academy will now develop two PlayStyles+! The first PlayStyle+ will be unlocked at 80 OVR and second will be unlocked at 90 OVR. This is the only way possible in Manager Career to have a player with two PlayStyles+.

Clubs

  • For our Clubs players, we’re adding a permanent double XP multiplier to any experience gained after a match in FC 24. Which means accelerated progression for your Virtual Pro – faster way to unlock extra slots and different available PlayStyles for your Virtual Pro. By simply playing any match in Clubs (ex. drop-in or league game) you will notice an increased amount of earned XP. And remember that the amount of XP is also based on the Match Rating – the better your performance in the game the faster the progression.
