EA FC 24 Evolutions explained: Available upgrades, requirements, more

Evolutions in EA FC 24EA SPORTS

EA FC 24 will allow players to keep their favorite Ultimate Team cards relevant throughout a game’s life cycle with upgrades. Here is everything you need to know about Evolutions.

A steep power curve makes using your favorite Ultimate Team card nearly impossible for longer than a few months. The franchise formerly known as FIFA has constantly released new promos with higher overall players. But before you know it, your club legend is forced to take a permanent seat on the bench or be relegated to the reserves unless they are lucky enough to receive an additional special card.

EA SPORTS FC 24 attempts to fix that issue with the introduction of Evolutions. For the first time in series history, players will be able to upgrade cards over the course of a year by completing objectives.

Let’s jump right into how this exciting system works.

How Evolutions work in EA FC 24

Evolutions allow users to upgrade their squad players’ base stats to turn them into better cards. Any player who fits the requirements for evolution can be evolved, including all promo cards and Team of the Week cards that will release during FC 24.

Players can also acquire new PlayStyles for their favorite cards, including PlayStyles+.

Players can upgrade individual attributes, including shooting, physical, defending, pace, passing, and dribbling, by completing objectives themed around that area. For example, to improve a player’s shooting, an objective of scoring goals may require completion to evolve the player.

The feature also allows evolved players to learn a new position. This means a midfielder could be turned into a winger and more.

There will also be a selection of Evolution that are Season-based and limited for a certain period of time. The development team promises to keep this feature “fresh and updated” by adding more ways to evolve squads throughout the seasons and year.

Additionally, players can have “as many Evolution players in their squad as you want,” but players can only activate one to Upgrade at a time.

EA FC 24’s Senior Producer told Dexerto how he thinks Evolutions will affect the Ultimate Team meta going forward.
