EA Sports FC trying to step up the experience on mobile

More On: EA SPORTS FC 24

EA Sports FC has had a mobile app for a few years now, but to be honest all I've ever used was the FUT companion app to load up auctions or open packs while on the go. Mobile is always a tricky experience to pull off when your game was build for controller support. Looking to drum up a player base, EA is offering a special title of "FC Mobile Founder" for anyone who picks up the game in advance of the September 26th release as part of the Founders Event, which runs the month prior, starting August 24th.

So basically what we have here is EA's FIFA franchise is transitioning in a rebrand to Sports FC because they didn't want to keep paying FIFA for a license they deemed they didn't need after FIFA tried to jack up the licensing fees. So if you're playing FIFA Soccer mobile right now, then that app will automatically become EA Sports FC Mobile come launch day. And if you play the app the month prior, then you're hooked up with the Founders title. Founders is more than just a title, as it will also reward some in-game rewards at launch as well. 

Need more reasons to try it out? Check out the following gameplay features from the press release and the trailer below:

  • True Player Personality: The world’s most recognizable players come to life with True Player Personality. Authentic running styles, penalty kick stances and celebrations for certain players, all bring EA SPORTS FC MOBILE to a new level of authenticity.
  • Dynamic Game Speed: Mobile-first and tactile game speed, allowing for more player personality and attribute impact on the pitch.
  • Elite Shooting System: Revamped shooting system allows impact players to show up on the scoresheet and make their mark. Feel rewarded when you make smart shooting decisions both inside and outside the box, on a cross, or off the volley. Take control of your favorite attackers and rally your team to victory.
  • Impact Controls:
    • Power Shot: Unleash a high-powered shot that leaves keepers clawing at air. Load up your shot when you’re in space to harness the full potential of Power Shot. Balance the risk and reward of the Power Shot to devastate your opponent and take the lead.
    • Knock On Dribble: Bring your pacey dribblers to top speed faster by knocking the ball ahead into space. Take advantage of your opponent’s high defensive back-line by having your rapid attackers push ahead in a fluid manner. Dribbling with true speedsters takes on a whole new feeling.
    • Hard Tackle: Make your presence felt and assert dominance in defense and midfield by launching a crunching stand tackle. Separate your opponent’s attackers from the ball or make a last-ditch block with new Hard Tackles.
