EA Sports FC 24 will be more expensive than any FIFA game that's ever been released
| Last updated
The price for the new EA Sports FC game has been revealed, with it being more expensive than any previous editions of FIFA.
EA and FIFA have parted ways after a 30-year partnership, with FIFA 23 the very last game in the history of the franchise.
However the popular football game will still be getting a release in September - with official licenses - just with a different name and feel to it.
Then, on Thursday, an official reveal trailer at an event in Amsterdam, Netherlands, provided more in-depth detail on EA Sports FC 24 before Manchester City sensation Erling Haaland was announced as the cover star for the Standard Edition of the game.
Much of the core elements of the game will be exactly same, such as the usual modes, but there has been a substantial increase in price.
It's emerged that the Standard Edition will set fans back £69.99 but the Ultimate Edition for Xbox and PlayStation comes with a steep cost of £99.99.

More expensive then any FIFA game that’s ever been released 😭
The enhanced version of the game, when pre-ordered, comes with a slew of added perks such as seven days early access, 4600 FC points and a slew of other in-game bonuses.
But there was an overwhelming negative response to the fee set by EA, with plenty of fans saying they will not pay up.
One fan wrote: "No one is actually gonna buy it. It’s mental."
A second said: "Who remembers when new games were £30."
A third followed up: "Yeah… safe I ain’t getting it. The prices for games nowadays is a complete joke."
A fourth weighed in: "Sorry £100 is a f**king joke. What exactly will they have done to make the game SOOOO much better than this years?"
Another fumed: "Price is ridiculous!! Same stuff just different mechanics and animation."
A sixth joked: "Ronaldo better come out of my TV and do a SIU in my living room every time I score for these prices."
New features for EA FC include introduction of female players in Ultimate Team, as well as two new leagues in Spain's Liga F and Germany's Frauen Bundesliga and Crossplay finally being available on Pro Clubs.
The game will also use HyperMotionV technology to bring real-life match movement into the virtual football world.
The worldwide release is set for September 29 but those who pre-order the Ultimate Edition, and EA Play subscribers, will be able to to access it before the rest.
It is likely that the price of the game will be slashed in December.
