The early access release date for EA Sports FC 24 is about to kick off. However, before the Ultimate edition launches, football fans can get even earlier access to Ultimate Team for free.
EA Sports FC 24 is the first football installment by Electronic Arts away from FIFA. Player ratings have been revealed, and the top 10 consists of Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland alongside female stars such as Alexia Putellas and Aitana Bonmati. For the first time, you will be able to include legends of the women’s game in your Ultimate Team. And, before the Ultimate edition comes out, you can get an early access head start on your Ultimate Team completely for free.
How to get early access to EA Sports FC 24 Ultimate Team
EA Sports FC 24 fans can get early access to Ultimate Team from September 20th.
This is the release date for the annual Web App. Meanwhile, the launch date for the accompanying Companion App is September 21st.
You will be able to access the Web App online for free when it goes live, and you will be able to download the Companion App for free on iOS and Android. Both will give you entry to Ultimate Team early.
Although you won’t be able to play any matches, both applications will allow you to start building your Ultimate Team for when the game properly begins.
