Path to Glory FC 24 Team 1

There are 30 new cards that are part of Path to Glory Team 1 with 20 of these cards coming from teams in EURO 2024 and the remaining 10 coming from Copa America. If any of the seven 96-rated cards’ teams wins their tournament’s final, they will become 99-rated. All of these cards are rated between 91 and 96. With the potential upgrades that some of these cards could get, some of these cards are quite comfortably the best cards in the game!

Greats of the Game FC 24 Upgrade Path

Greats of the Game cards are given to a select few ICONs and Heroes in the game. Similar to the Path to Glory cards, these can be upgraded based on how their nation performs in their tournament. There are two potential upgrades up for grabs, which are determined by how many goals their nation scores. The following below are the requirements for each upgrade:

Nation Scores 2 Goals- +1 OVR upgrade

Nation Scores 4 Goals- +1 PlayStyle+ OR 1 99 Face Stat

Greats of the Game FC 24 Team 1

EA have given us 12 insane Greats of the Game cards! Eight of these cards are ICONs and the other four are Heroes cards. They are all rated between 94 and 97 which is amazing, and they are all very usable cards which gives us loads of more unique squad-building opportunities. There is potential for Kenny Dalglish and Rivaldo to both become 98-rated if Brazil and Scotland score two goals in their tournaments. These cards are already ridiculously good and with the potential of upgrades and an additional PlayStyles+, they will be very sought-after and will be extremely valuable for your squad.

New Loan Type in FC 24

In addition to all of the new cards that we have gained in FC 24, we have a new type of loan card to explore in the game. To go alongside the traditional “Match Loans”, which are the loan cars that we already have in Ultimate Team, we now have “Global Loans”. Global Loans are applicable to all players simultaneously and they begin and end on a set time and date for everyone. They allow players to use certain cards for a set period. These will all expire on July 18th.

New Evolutions in FC 24

Today was a huge day for Evolutions as FOUR new FREE evolutions were added to the game. Every player has received a pack containing seven EURO and Copa America academy attackers to put into these new evolutions “EURO Attacker” and “COPA Attacker”. These Evolutions can be completed twice and for each competition totalling four free evolutions.
