EA Sports FC 24 on Nintendo Switch runs on the Frostbite engine for the first time. So EA isn’t just releasing a rebranded version of FIFA 19 again this year.
After the full game was revealed on July 13th, Nintendo The rebranded FIFA reveals that Switch players will be moving on from years of essentially reskinned legacy editions.
The Frostbite Engine promises to bring “immersive detail” to the Switch version of FC 24, especially when combined with the game’s new PlayStyles technology that “enhances the realism and personality of each player.”
Switch players can also fully enjoy the most popular Ultimate Team mode in FIFA (and possibly FC now). In this mode, the player can develop his own team of football legends, including both men and women. Previous FIFA games on Switch only included a limited version of this mode.
These updates are very different from what we’ve done so far for the Switch version of EA’s premier football franchise. We gave the original FIFA 19 a 5/10 rating, as shown in IGN’s review of these games, and it’s on this foundation that EA has released the rest of its Switch offerings. .
FIFA 20 (which he said “offers nothing but minimal roster updates”) got 4/10, while FIFA 21, FIFA 22, and FIFA 23 only got 2/10 each. The last entry was “a classic example of minimal effort for maximum gain,” the review said.
Editor’s Note: A previous version of this article stated that EA Sports FC 24 on Switch included Ultimate Team for the first time, not the full version of Ultimate Team. IGN has corrected this and apologize for the error.
