Massive Update Revealed for FC 24

EA Sports have announced the third official title update for FC 24, and it’s massive.

The largest title update to date will address various FC 24 issues reported by players in the past weeks such as the fire coach bug in Manager Career that would crash the game or the annoying goalkeeper animations. The gameplay received quite a number of changes as well such as “increased ball travel distance on manually requested clearances” and improved referee logic among others.

The update also includes 162 star heads that will be available once the next squads update is released. The full patch notes are as following:
