EA deserted the FIFA license after almost 30 years, asserting in Might 2022 that the way forward for the sequence can be referred to as EA Sports activities FC. Now they’ve began the promotional wheels for the primary with the brand new title, EA Sports activities FC 24. Beneath is an announcement trailer and a “gameplay reveal” trailer arriving on July thirteenth.
This is the trailer, which is rendered within the Frostbite Engine, however is not truly consultant footage from the sport:
FIFA23 was the primary within the sequence to characteristic ladies’s membership soccer, which the trailer above suggests will return. There’s after all additionally the return of assorted gamers from earlier eras.
I would not guess a lot to vary with the identify, past what one can often anticipate from a brand new yearly iteration. Defenders will seemingly be a bit stronger, the goalkeeper AI rather less silly, and the neighborhood will discover significantly highly effective soccer inside three hours of the sport’s launch. My cash is on the lobs.
EA has determined to drop the FIFA license after FIFA reportedly demanded an enormous enhance within the license payment. EA makes billions from its soccer matches and FIFA needed an even bigger minimize. EA mentioned no, and loses little going past sure tournaments just like the World Cup. All participant likenesses and such stay, as they’re licensed by separate relationships with leagues, golf equipment and participant organizations corresponding to FIFPro.
We’ll discover out extra when the gameplay trailer arrives on Thursday. It additionally appears seemingly that FC24 (which I assume is the acronym everybody will decide) can be launched in September, as FIFA video games all the time have been, if a usually dependable knowledge miner is right.
