EA Sports’ FC 24 Ultimate Edition cover is packed with soccer stars

EA Sports is showing off the FC 24 Ultimate Edition cover and the athlete - or rather athletes - joining Haaland on the box of this game for PS5 and Xbox.

FC 24 Ultimate Edition cover athlete: Bukayo Saka

If you’re someone who enjoys spending their time playing some of the best soccer games out there, you’ll be pleased to know that EA Sports is starting to lift the lid on FC 24 – the title that’s going to usher in next era of soccer games from the veteran developer. We might not have any gameplay footage to talk about just yet, but what we do have is information on who the FC 24 Ultimate Edition cover athlete is – or rather, cover ‘athletes’. Erling Haaland isn’t alone this time around.

If you’re wondering why some of these players look a little off, it’s clear that these are in-game renders of the players – as opposed to the photos that EA Sports usually uses with FIFA games. We don’t know why that is just yet, but it could be EA Sports flexing its muscles a bit when it comes to the character models it’s going to take advantage of in FC 24.

However, there are some interesting names in there. Notably, the presence of the retired Alex Scott and Mia Hamm seems to confirm that we’re getting women’s icons (or, at least hero cards) for FC 24’s iteration of Ultimate Team – something EA Sports has never done before.

The arrival of this announcement comes just days after EA Sports’ interesting HyperMotion V technology reveal and the recent launch date leaks. So, it’s safe to assume that we’re going to get something of an official announcement about this game very shortly. The full reveal is on July 13, so keep your eyes out then.
