EA FC Game preview

The newest edition of the most popular football game is coming out soon, and I will be showing you what is new and some changes that EA made.

If you did not already know, EA and FIFA have split over a licensing disagreement they had a couple of months ago, so both companies will be making their own games, with EA being the first to drop theirs.

Ultimate Team

Ultimate Team is a game mode where you can, as the name suggests, build your own ultimate team. Over the last decade, Ultimate Team has only been men, but over the last couple of years women's football has grown, so this year they will add female players, from all the top leagues, like the WSL or the NWSL. So now you can be getting male and female players in a pack or a player pick.

Another important thing getting added to Ultimate Team is Evolution. You can choose your favorite player/s and play games to upgrade them to make them even better. For example, you have 86 rated Cristiano Ronaldo, you choose to upgrade him, and the game will give you certain quests/objectives that you will have to complete in order to upgrade him.

An exciting addition to the game every year are Icons and Heroes. Last year there were FIFA World Cup Heroes, and this year it UCL (UEFA Champions League). We will be getting some of the best players to ever play in the Champions League, for example Carlos Tevez and Vincent Kompany.

Crossplay

Stepping away from Ultimate Team, you will now also be able to play FC with all of your friends, whether they are on PC, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 4/5 which was not available last year. This feature will be newly available in the following game modes: Pro Clubs, Co-Op Season, Volta (Street football) and Ultimate Team Co-Op.

PlayStyles

An additional feature is PlayStyles. EA have captured data from real football matches to make the best players play like they do in real life. This is very cool because it makes the game even more realistic than it already is. For example, Erling Haaland has the playstyle power shot, because he does that in real life. Here are, for example, the best players with the PlayStyle rapid: 86 Ousmane Dembele, 86 Rafael Leao, 84 Federico Chiesa, 83 Lauren James, 91 Kylian Mbappe, 90 Sam Kerr, 89 Mohammed Salah, 89 Vinicius Junior, 89 Alex Morgan and 88 Victor Osimhen. Other PlayStyles are Tiki-Taka, First Touch, Flair, Press Proven, Rapid, Technical and Trickster.

That sums up the new game, and I am personally excited about it, so hopefully this has helped you to understand the game a bit better!
