It's been a huge day for EA Sports FC but a small mention means mobile players won't be left out. While next-gen players have some big FC 24 gameplay features to get excited about, if you aren't on a high-end console or PC there's a new way to play about to land.
Tucked away in the livestream reveals was the mention of a big new way of playing for gamers around the world. FC Tactical will be a "turn-based strategy game offering entirely new ways to experience the world's game".
So far that's all we know about the new mobile game. This could look similar to trading card games and battling, or be more of a team-vs-team affair.
We just don't know yet, but more information is sure to be released in the coming weeks so stay tuned!
