The world of footballvideo games has witnessed a seismic shift as the old FIFAhas become the new EA FC. Following a rights dispute between Electronic Arts and football's world governing body FIFA, the long-running franchise has, for now, sadly perished, in its old form. However, there are viewing optionsout there for fans of the old game.
FIFA have declared that they have a new developer and will bring their franchise back, with FIFA 25 reportedly set to launch next year. However, for now, the game as we know it lives on as EA FC, with the first instalment EA Sports FC 24 having launched in late September globally.
Now that the dust has settled on this huge change, what's new about EA Sports FC 24 compared to its genetic predecessor FIFA 23?
There is of course a new name and new branding, but in theory, the rest of the game should be similar to previous iterations. Right?
Nonetheless, have the devs decided to throw some spanners into the works? Let's find out.

No 'Trad Bricks' Here

One of the biggest concerns many fans of the franchise had going in was that EA would lose its licenses after cutting ties with FIFA, leading to a PES-type situation (if you know, you know) in which the biggest clubs and playersare creatively and cringe-inducingly renamed.
However, despite losing the FIFA branding, EA Sports FC 24 will retain all major league licenses, including those to the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A, and more.
The only notable absence is AC Milan– while all its players will continue to feature in the game, they'll appear under a different team name and kit.

Women's Game Gets a Big Upgrade

In a ground-breaking move, womenfootballers will now share the pitch with menin Ultimate Team mode. This allows for hybrid squads where players can have both Erling Haalandand Sam Kerr playing side by side.
Additionally, six new Women’s Footballcompetitions have been added: UEFA Women’s Champions League, Barclays Women’s Super League, National Women’s SoccerLeague, D1 Arkema, Google Pixel Frauen-Bundesliga and Liga F.

Career Mode Feeling The Love

To the chagrin of the dwindling but passionate Career Mode community out there, the mode has often been ignored and neglected, with very few changes forthcoming between games.
However, career mode in EA Sports FC 24gets a couple of intriguing new features.
Agents will play a more active role in the Player version of career mode. They'll offer advice on transfer business instead of leaving everything up to the player. Furthermore, new 'career path' objectives may introduce even more drama into transfer sagas.
In the Manager version of Career Mode, players can now take their obsessions for detail to a new level by hiring coaches to join their back room staff. You can search for specific coaches with various skillsand, if your budget allows, hire them for your team and give them instructions on how to improve your team.
The new 'Tactical Vision' feature also allows you to ascertain whether or not these hires will match your footballing philosophy.
FIFA may be dead, at least for this year, but the new EA FC era has arrived, and there is plenty of new stuff to get your teeth into.
