EA FC 24 PS5 refresh rate

EA FC 24 will run on a 60hz refresh rate, there will be no option to play the game on 120hz which is highly requested by the PS5 community.

One positive though is the game will run on 4K with new graphics enhanced by the Frostbite engine.

Many games on PS5 can run over 100-120hz, so many fans are confused as to why EA FC 24 will not have that option.

PS5 enhanced haptics

New haptics options for PS5 will allow players to turn the haptics feedback up to the maximum possible on the controller. More details on how this works in game is yet to be provided but this could potentially be a huge edition to EA FC 24 next gen!

HyperMotionV

New HyperMotionV features are exclusive to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

Hypermotion has been integrated into the game mechanics since FIFA 22, evolving through Hypermotion 1.0 in that installment and Hypermotion 2.0 in FIFA 23. While many anticipated the arrival of Hypermotion 3.0 this year, EA FC 24 has taken a different approach, introducing Hypermotion V.

INCREDIBLE DETAIL - Football has never looked better

As stated in the official EA FC 24 gameplay Pitch Notes:

The enhanced Frostbite™ Engine delivers The World’s Game in lifelike detail, bringing a new level of immersion to each match. All-new SAPIEN character technology transforms the way players look and move with realistically redesigned player models that are 10x more anatomically precise and correct down to the smallest detail, and GPU cloth stretches and ripples to showcase more athleticism, making every slide and every celebration more like real-world football

The proof is in the pudding, and the screenshots we've seen so far certainly suggest that EA FC 24 is going to make FIFA 23 look decades old.

Additionally, the Frostbite engine won't just make the players look and feel more realistic than ever before, but it will also make things like authentic stadiums feel more real than ever.

Are PlayStyles on PlayStation 4 & 5?

Yes, PlayStyles and PlayStyles+ are both available on PlayStation 4/5.

PlayStyles in EA FC 24 are a new feature introduced in the game that focuses on the individual style and performance of each player. This feature dynamically alters players' movement mechanics based on their distinct styles and movements exhibited in real-life football matches. PlayStyles act as a significant update to the previous Traits System present in FIFA 23 and have similarities to the X-Factors feature in Madden.

In total, there are 34 PlayStyles, each falling into one of five categories: Passing, Scoring, Ball Control, Defending, and Goalkeeper. Each PlayStyle has two distinct levels: PlayStyles and PlayStyles+. PlayStyles are available to various players, while PlayStyles+ is exclusively reserved for the best players in the game or those who excel in a particular aspect in real life. PlayStyles+ enhances a player's ability from special to spectacular, providing noticeable boosts that help top players shine on the pitch.
