The release date for EA Sports FC 24 has reportedly been revealed.
A standard and Ultimate version of the game will be available, as was the case with EA‘s FIFA series. Like the FIFA series, the Ultimate Edition of EA Sports FC 24 will give players early access.
However, whereas FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition gave players 3 days of early access to the game, EA Sports FC 24 will reportedly give players a week of early access, should they purchase the more expensive version.
EA teased earlier in the year that more information about the forthcoming reboot of the football franchise will be revealed this month.
It was also claimed earlier in the year that EA Sports FC Ultimate Team will feature female players for the first time.
While FIFA has featured female players for some years and updated FIFA 23 with more women’s football content earlier this year, female players have never featured in the game’s most popular mode.
FIFA’s Pro Clubs mode, in which each player takes control of one player rather than a full team, has allowed for the mixing of male and female players since FIFA 23, but is currently the only mode that allows this.
EA Sports FC marks the first football game from the publisher following the end of its relationship with FIFA.
The governing body of football still intends to create football video games, however. Earlier this year it was reported that FIFA president Gianni Infantino said: “The new FIFA game – the FIFA 25, 26, 27 and so on – will always be the best e-game for any girl or boy.”
