The release of EA Sports FC 24 is drawing ever closer, with the game set to be out on September 29.

It will be the first release in the series following EA's break from FIFA, and will carry with it a bit more expectation and intrigue than usual.

So far we have been given an announcement trailer, a gameplay trailer, Ultimate Team info, and a glimpse at the cover for the Ultimate Edition of the game.

The cover ventured from EA's usual M.O., and shows a number of players as their in game characters rather than real life photos.

Many fans did not react too kindly to the image, feeling that many of the likenesses looked strange, but EA's senior vice president and general manager, Nicholas Wlodyka, has defended the picture and described the difficulties involved in making it:

You nailed it. In terms of getting 31 players on the cover - each with approval rights - having to negotiate through exactly how they want to appear on the cover, it is a quagmire to pull it off.

I think the biggest thing in and around it - and as you touched on - many people don't realise that to be able to pull together this cast and do all of these individual deals, there's just a tonne that goes into that.

"You can't pull that off in six months, it's something you have to think about way ahead to be able to pull off," Wlodyka added.


"It's not necessarily anybody being unreasonable - it's just the dynamics of partnerships,

"What we feel really good about is being able to do new things. I think that's one small example. There's much bigger ones to come."
