NEW ARRIVALS - 4 new Archetypes have been added to EA FC 24.

We saw last year just how much the new Archetypes affected the way certain players performed, with lengthy stars like Haaland and CR7 quickly breaking the meta.

This year, things should be a lot more varied and we're excited to see how each new Archetype will affect certain play styles.

The purpose of each Archetype is to add gameplay variety but to also alter the ways players feel, meaning the classic 'hold down the right trigger' play style will not be as effective as it once was.

New meta

As mentioned above, it was the Lengthy Archetype that proved to be the king when it came to FIFA 23.

Ironically, new EA FC 24 cover star Erling Haaland became unplayable in FIFA 23 due to his assigned archetype.

This year, things could be different. Whilst Haaland will almost certainly still be overpowered in many ways, there is likely to be a far greater balance.

We saw, in time, that EA was able to balance the way that the different archetypes felt with Accelerate 1.0 and we're sure that this new advancement in tech is only going to lead to greater possibilities.

Discovering the new meta is a fun part of any new football game and we're certain that these new Archetypes will play their part when it comes to uncovering the new overpowered mechanic.
