EA FC 24 is finally out, and fans from all over the world are pouring in to try out the latest installment of the popular franchise. Here’s everything to know about EA FC 24, including every new feature, game mode, and release date.

EA Sports raised quite a few eyebrows in the gaming industry when they announced the ending of their nearly 30-year partnership with FIFA in 2022. FIFA 23 was the last title that came under the umbrella of EA Sports as well as the football entity.

EA FC 24 replaces the iconic franchise, but some fans are still wondering what implications this massive change will have on the popular football series. Here’s everything to know about EA FC 24, including every confirmed game mode, all new features, licenses, and the official release date.

EA FC 24 release date & early access

EA FC 24 was released on September 29, 2023, with early access for Ultimate Edition owners starting on September 22, seven days before the official release.

All EA FC 24 platforms

EA FC 24 is available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. This way, EA Sports maintains its strong presence on both current-gen and last-gen consoles.

All EA FC 24 game modes

EA FC 24 has Volta, Career Mode, and Clubs alongside Ultimate Team in EA FC 24.

Long-time FIFA fans are receiving most of the content they’ve become accustomed to over the years, including Ultimate Team and Career Mode. Given the success of Ultimate Team, it’s no surprise to see that EA planned to continue to deliver the fan-favorite mode.

All Ultimate Team new features

A great new feature for the EA FC 24 Ultimate Team mode is the inclusion of footballers from the Women’s game, which has allowed players to build new mixed teams with the world’s top players and fully customize their squads.

Another new feature added in EA FC 24 is the Ultimate Team Evolutions mechanic, which gives players the possibility to enhance the stats and overall rating of their favorite players through the dynamic evolution paths.

All Career Mode new features

Career Mode has also received significant new features in EA FC 24, such as the ability to hire position coaches in Manager Career Mode, enhancing your squad’s overall rating. Additionally, players can create training plans based on their upcoming opponents in the calendar.

On the other hand, the Player Career Mode’s main new feature is the introduction of Agents. With them, every player can choose the team where they want to play and receive a series of challenges they must complete to secure a dream move. Furthermore, players are now able to compete for the Ballon d’Or.

All EA FC 24 official licenses

Another concern many fans had when EA and FIFA parted ways was how it would affect the licensed leagues, teams, and stadiums that the series is known for. Luckily, EA FC’s roster of licenses is unaffected by the rebrand.

UEFA declared that they are committed to providing an immersive Champions League, Europa League, and Conference League experience in EA FC 24, so players shouldn’t see any licensing changes there.
