Some aspects got longer airtime than others, and one of those taking up most of the talk show time was FC 24 Ultimate Team. Without even getting to play the game yet, there’s so much to talk about.

In this post, I’ll be discussing all that we’ve learned about EA’s Ultimate Team game mode.

Added to this, which is the biggest news of all, women’s football will be added to Ultimate Team on FC 24. This means there will be more legends, Icons, Heroes, and more in UT this season.

New Competitions in FC 24 Ultimate Team

What is Ultimate Team without any Squad Building Challenges? Well, it wouldn’t be enjoyable, that’s for certain. In Nick Wlodyka’s talks, he promises that there will be six new competitions added to SBCs, giving players even more opportunities and ways to build their squad to become the Ultimate Team.

New Player Evolution

The new player evolution allows UT players to create their own legendary players from within their own squads and throughout the season.
