EA Sports FC 24 is almost here and we cannot wait to get our hands on the video game.
This will be the first edition of the game since EA and Fifa ended their 30-year partnership in 2022, which is why the game has gone through a major rebrand ahead of its release later this month.
Erling Haaland is the cover star of FC 24, following a long line of legendary footballers to grace the front of the game, including Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Ronaldinho, Wayne Rooney and Thierry Henry.
