The new edition of FIFA has its first update before the official release date.
As the highly anticipated full launch of EA Sports FC 24 inches closer on September 29, Electronic Arts has rolled out its first patch, known as Title Update 1, offering a glimpse into what players can expect.
This update comes even before the game becomes available to the general public, reserved initially for Ultimate Edition buyers and EA Play subscribers. Despite the general release date still being a few days away, Title Update 1 has already arrived to address stability issues that may have affected some players.
The Title Update 1, as communicated by the customer support team, has been available on PC since yesterday and is now accessible on all major consoles, including PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Regrettably, Nintendo Switch users will need to wait a bit longer for this update.
Though the developers mention that the update addresses stability problems, they refrain from specifying the exact issues, leaving players curious about the changes made. The patch notes remain quite sparse, with a promise of more detailed information and updates throughout the season.
While the game has generally been smooth for most players, a couple of bugs have already been reported by the community. One notable bug involves Ada Hegerberg, who was removed from Ultimate Team due to her inexplicable tendency to move away from the ball whenever it approaches her. These issues have been added to the known problems list but have not been fixed yet.
As the player counts on the servers increase, it’s expected that more stress will be placed on the system, potentially leading to more of these issues cropping up. Nonetheless, EA Sports FC 24 offers fresh interface updates and intriguing gameplay improvements, making it a promising addition to the series.
