EA has officially revealed EA Sports FC 24, the revamped successor to FIFA 23. The game will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Windows PC, and Nintendo Switch on 29 September 2023 – and this year, it will be covered by football player Erling Haaland of Manchester City.

Notably, players who preorder the game will be able to access it one week early, on 22 September 2023.

While technically the first edition of the rebranded EA Sports FC, it will continue the annual lineage of the FIFA series, and feature much of the same gameplay that previously made FIFA a household name.

This go around, the series will spotlight the football leagues of UEFA, including: The UEFA Champion’s League, The UEFA Women’s Champions League, UEFA Europa League, UEFA Super Cup, UEFA Europa Conference League, and plenty more.

For the first time, the Women’s League will also be included in the game’s Ultimate Team mode, which allows players to collect and improve players for a literal ‘ultimate team’.

While the game will largely resemble its predecessors, EA also pointed out a range of gameplay improvements players can expect when EA Sports FC 24 launches, including a new ‘HyperMotionV’ system that aims to translate the realistic fluidity of football games, fresh play styles that better align digital athletes with their real-life counterparts, and new graphical detail provided by the EA FrostBite Engine.

This go around, Ultimate Team will also get an upgrade, as players will be able to improve player stats and skills via a new Evolutions system.
