EA Sports has rolled out a spectacular offering in FC 24 Ultimate Team that has the gaming community buzzing with excitement. In a limited-time promotion with Apple’s Beats by Dre, players have the opportunity to get their hands on a free Erling Haaland card, and if you’re an enthusiast looking to enhance your roster with the Norwegian superstar, continue reading.
The requirement to unlock the free Erling Haaland card is simple – play EA SPORTS FC 24 by Wednesday, November 1st and the card is yours! The promo announcement was accompanied by a very cinematic trailer created using EA’s Frostbite game engine:
This offer is part of the FC Founder package, which also includes: Exclusive Beats Studio Pro Viking Vanity, Founder Badge, Unique Founder Kits, Exclusive Founder Evolutions and Bespoke Founder Stadium Vanity.
In the promotional clip, it’s revealed that this special version of the card is 87-rated, which is four ratings lower than Haaland’s base card in Ultimate Team that currently goes for nearly 200,000 coins on the transfer market.
While the card’s stats remain undisclosed, the rating suggests a slight dip in attributes. Nonetheless, this item is poised to be a formidable force in front of goal, or at the very least, a high-rated fodder to use in a future SBC.
It is important to point out that players won’t receive the card in-game until December 10. The delay in release is likely a strategic move to prevent market destabilization by potentially devaluing similar cards.
A similar promo was released in FIFA 21, with a special David Beckham card being offered as a log-in bonus to players.
EA SPORTS FC 24 features more than 19,000 licensed players, 700 teams, 100 stadiums, and 30 leagues and is available now on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
