Test: EA Sports FC 24 is that good
We’ve been playing EA FC 24 since last week and have been able to try out all modes in detail. You can find the most important innovations, our assessment and all relevant pros and cons in our test:
EA Sports FC 24 is the successor to the well-known FIFA series from publisher Electronic Arts. After 20 years, the license for the world football association’s naming rights has expired. Apart from the name, not much will change. Licenses for over 30 major leagues, modes, clubs, tournaments and more are also on board.
The Frostbite engine is still used as the technical substructure, although many corners have been tweaked. Muscles, proportions and leotards, for example, should look even more realistic, and the lighting has also been improved.
