Black Friday Thunderstruck Promo Revealed in FC 24

Mini-release on Friday? Tons of ridiculous packs in store? Welcome to Black Friday and the release of Thunderstruck Promo in EA FC 24.

Thunderstruck is a brand-new promo in the Ultimate Team campaign collection. It showcases an array of current players and Icons, each equipped with a permanently upgraded player item that has the potential for further upgrades. Each player item is linked to a real-life football club. The performance of these clubs in their upcoming matches will be pivotal, as it determines the In-Form and PlayStyle enhancements these cards will receive.

These upgrade paths are as follows:

  • Men’s upgrade Path
    • 1 win in the next 4 games = +1 IF Upgrade
    • 2 wins in the next 4 games = +2 Regular PlayStyles
    • 3 wins in the next 4 games = +1 IF Upgrade
  • Women’s upgrade Path
    • 1 win in the next 3 games = +1 IF Upgrade
    • 2 wins in the next 3 games = +2 Regular PlayStyles and +1 IF Upgrade
  • Icon’s upgrade Path
    • Win 1 of the next 4 games = +1 PlayStyle
    • Win 3 of the next 4 games = +1 Inform Upgrade

With the upgrade details clarified, let’s have a closer look at the squad featured in the Thunderstruck promo. The lineup is notably led by the Brazilian football Icon Ronaldinho, whose upgrades will be tied to FC Barcelona’s performance in La Liga. Among the current active players, Vinícius Júnior, Neymar, and Kadidiatou Diani stand out as key figures in this promotion.

These three players will receive upgrades based on their respective clubs’ achievements in their domestic league matches. Additionally, the promo includes fan favorites like Johan Cruyff, Thierry Henry, Eric Cantona, and Ferenc Puskás, adding to the appeal of the Thunderstruck lineup.
