EA FC 24 Winter Wildcards Are Here

The final promo of 2023 is here! But where are the swaps, EA?

The first promo of the Season 3: Frostbite is LIVE in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team. The Winter Wildcards (WW) promo is finally here and there are some insane cards, SBCs and other content in store for us. EA has released 23 permanently upgraded player items in packs as part of Winter Wildcards Team 1 and has promised daily SBC player content throughout this promo.

For those who are not familiar, the Winter Wildcards promo is a winter-themed event in the Ultimate Team game mode. It has been introduced as a replacement for the popular FUTMAS promo in FIFA 22. Even though there was an initial backlash for replacing a fan favourite promo, Ultimate Team fans started loving the promo due to the introduction of Swap Tokens and Swap Rewards. However, in EA FC 24, there are no signs of a Swaps system to grind for so far.

FC 24 Winter Wildcards

The Winter Wildcards Team 1 is headlined by the Legendary Pele, who gets a massive 96 rated card. Other notable players in the promo squad are Alexia Putellas (FC Barcelona), Virgil Van Dijk (Liverpool) and the great man Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nassr).

Some of the lower rated cards like Marco Reus and Alex Balde also got significant boosts to keep them in touch with the power curve of the game. However, the one player that could fly under everyone’s radar is Rayan Cherki, who got a card that could be extremely fun to use with Trickster+ Playstyle and 5 star Weak Foot/Skill moves combo.
