In a whirlwind of exciting news, EA Sports FC 24 keeps dropping bombshells, and this time, they’re partnering up with the illustrious Ballon D’or! Yes, you heard it right – the prestigious football award is making it’s grand entrance into the virtual realm of Player Career mode, ready to be celebrated in a glitzy in-game end-of-season ceremony.
EA Sports FC 24’s Player Career Mode Gets a Dose of Glamour
This thrilling new feature was revealed courtesy of a new trailer that dropped, but there’s a small catch; the lavish ceremony seems to be exclusive to players on current-gen consoles and PC.
For the uninitiated, the Ballon d’Or has been gracing the football world since 1956, with France Football bestowing the honour upon the finest player of the season. In 2018, they thoughtfully introduced a version for female players too. And with EA Sports FC’s imminent arrival this September, exceptional performances in Player Career mode could potentially lead to clinching the Ballon d’Or trophy and becoming Europe’s elite footballer.
Just picture it – the triumphant player stepping onto the stage, basking in the glory of the virtual crowd’s thunderous applause as they grasp the prestigious award. It’s the stuff dreams are made of, and EA is pulling out all the stops to make it a mesmerising moment in your gaming journey. The latest EA Sports FC video deep dive delves into Career mode, giving us a sneak peek at the glitz and glamour of the Ballon d’Or ceremony.
A Catch for Last-Gen Console Players?
However, amidst all the fanfare, there’s a twist. The press release dropped a hint that the award or, more specifically, the enchanting award ceremony might not be available for players on PS4, Xbox One, and Switch.
The “animation” of the Ballon d’Or seems to be reserved for the lucky next-gen console owners of PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Even if you don’t get the fancy cutscenes, you might still have a chance at clinching the coveted award in your Player Career. Recently John Shepherd, EA’s VP and executive producer put to bed any concerns from fans about the dodgy player faces in the game.
And there’s even more excitement to anticipate as EA Sports FC 24 hits the virtual shelves on September 29th, packing a punch with licensing deals that include the likes of the Premier League, Germany’s Frauen-Bundesliga, UEFA, and Spain’s Liga F. Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has been revealed as the cover star this year.
Brace yourselves for a gaming extravaganza on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. The stage is set, the game is on, and the Ballon d’Or awaits it’s virtual victor! Are you ready to take your Player Career to the pinnacle of glory?
