Getting stuck into FC 24 Ultimate Team is where many players will sink a lot of hours in EA Sports’ FIFA successor. The thrill of packing a legendary player is unmatched, but Ultimate Team Evolutions pays attention to your squad mates that already waiting in the wings when you arrive. Not only is Ultimate Team back, but its new layer of polish isn’t to be missed.
Game design director Richard Walz clarifies that FC 24 Ultimate Team Evolutions lets you “pick your favorite players and upgrade them throughout the year. All you have to do is […] complete objectives with them and then get their upgrades”.
Objectives can include parameters such as completing 20 passes with your desired player, which then progresses their ability on the pitch. That can be things such as improving their weak foot or passing. You’ll be taking any of your lowest-rated players to Ultimate Glory, and that sounds wicked to us.
EA Sports specifies in a recent statement that players can enrich “their individual skills, play styles, overall ratings, and even how their player items look.” Levelling player items help to give your squad a distinct sense of personality, too, making your club favorites stand out within your line-up.
Ultimate Team producer Jean Teather details that “we’ve never had anything quite like this […] there’s so much to love about what this unlocks for people’s passions, for players, regardless of where they’re at in their development.” This applies to both men’s and female’s soccer teams, too.
