EA FC 24 came out a few months ago for PC and the usual consoles, and the community is already delighted by its gameplay. EA has proven that it is indeed possible to have a high-quality game even though it lacks the ‘FIFA’ brand. For those unaware, EA FC 24 is none other than the official successor of FIFA 23. EA SPORTS no longer has the right to use the word ‘FIFA’ in its gaming titles.
EA FC 24 already seems to be a great game, and as you’ve already expected, it updates all the team kits and player names to match the real world. Club leagues have also been updated to include the latest teams that were promoted, those that were relegated, and so on.
Whether you’re new to FIFA games or not, you should definitely keep in mind a few powerful tips to improve your gameplay in these games, including EA FC 24:
Don’t park the bus
An old saying in football says that attack is the best defense. In other words, playing defensive football, such as keeping your team constantly in your own half of the field and smashing each ball away from you, is not an efficient way of playing the game. It doesn’t work in the real world of football, and it won’t work in video games, either. Sooner or later, in most situations, the gods of football will punish you for trying to fool this wonderful sport, meaning that you will lose the game.
Surely, you might have some objections here, saying that, for instance, the Italian national team is well-known for playing highly defensive football in many periods of its history and relying heavily on counterattacks. But guess what? Italy is the exception, not the rule. They were able to obtain great results with such a style of playing football because this country had some of the best defenders in the history of football. On the other hand, you won’t have such good defenders in your own team in a video game, so it’s best not to park the bus.
Opt for short and fast passes
It’s okay to opt for long passes as long as you have De Bruyne in your team, for instance, a player who is well-known as an exceptional passer. But for the majority of players of a football team, long passes don’t represent an efficient way of gameplay. It’s much better to opt for short, fast, and regular passes between teammates. Teams such as Barcelona were well-known for such kinds of passes out there in the real world, and the club won some pretty imposing trophies in this way.
Watch the gameplay of top players
Online streaming platforms such as YouTube are loaded with the gameplay of top FIFA players, and it’s nothing shameful to draw inspiration from others. This means that it’s a good idea to watch the gameplay of the best FIFA players and analyze it, as, in this way, you will definitely learn something.
Put your goalkeeper to work
Don’t be afraid to tell your goalkeeper to go all the way in your opponent’s penalty box when your team has a corner, especially in the latest minutes of a match. Also, don’t be afraid to make your goalkeeper go out of his own penalty area for short passes to his teammates. During a penalty shootout, even goalkeepers participate in executing penalty kicks if they get their turn. Even goalkeepers know how to kick the ball, so don’t be afraid to put them to work.
EA FC 24 is available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/Series S, and Windows PC.
