FC 24 Editions

EA Sports FIFA titles have been released every year since 1993. Still, it was only in FIFA 18 that Electronic Arts decided to create different editions featuring different content for the same game. The goal was to create a specific product that players could identify with, increase engagement, and make a few more dollars.

Except for Nintendo Switch, FC 24 has two editions, Standard and Ultimate, with different release dates, prices and pre-order offers.

    Release Date

    Release Dates

    For FIFA and FC fans, the most important feature of the most expensive edition is the ability to start playing earlier. While those who bought the Standard Edition must wait until midnight of the launch date, Ultimate Edition owners can start playing seven days earlier.

    The FC 24 trial starts four days before the release date, but you cannot play it for more than 10 hours. That’s not enough for most of the players. With the Ultimate Edition, you can play the full game without any restriction.

    If the price was the same, we are sure everyone would choose the Ultimate Edition. Makes sense since it includes all the standard edition offers plus several ones. That’s why it is more expensive.
