It includes the top 24 players, with more to be revealed over the coming days and the full list to be released on September 15 at 12pm PT / 3pm ET / 5pm BST / 6pm CEST.
Four players share the top spot with a 91 rating, including three men and one woman.
They are France and PSG star Kylian Mbappé, Spain and Barcelona midfielder Alexia Putellas, Norway and Manchester City striker Erling Haaland, and Belgium and Manchester City captain Kevin De Bruyne.
Eight players follow with 90 ratings: Aitana Bonmatí, Lionel Messi, Sam Kerr, Karim Benzema, Thibaut Courtois, Harry Kane, Caroline Graham Hansen and Robert Lewandowski.
EA Sports FC 24 will add women to the series’ hugely popular Ultimate Team mode for the first time, allowing players to create teams containing both male and female players.
“It’s something we really thought deeply about,” executive producer John Shepherd told IGN in July. “We feel we can play a really important role in the growth of that sport in introducing it to all of our fans. We just have this conviction that we believe we want to unite the world around football.
“Ultimate Team is a great place for that. It is a mode where you can build your fantasy team with different nationalities, different leagues, and different clubs. And so it felt like a great spot to be able to do that.”
Countering potential backlash to the change, senior producer Sam Rivera explained: “Ultimate Team is a fantasy mode. You don’t see Mbappe playing with all the Icons. It’s Ultimate Team — fantasy football is what’s happening there”.
EA Sports FC will be released on September 29, 2023, but early access will be available through the Ultimate Edition starting on September 22.
