The latest loading screen has dropped, teasing us with three cards coming in the Winter Wildcards promo.

We're pretty sure that N'Golo Kante and Kevin De Bruyne are two of the cards on there, but the one on the left is trickier to pin down based on the leaks we've seen.

Winter Wildcards

Winter Wildcards is a returning promo for Ultimate Team, first seen in FUT 22, and one of the festive events that have kept away the popular FUTmas promo.

As usual, new players will be released via packs, SBCs and Objectives, with random upgrades given out.

All of them will gain an overall boost, but some may see their card transformed, a position change introduced, Skill Moves or Weak Foot upgrades, or a change to their dominant foot.

Check out our Winter Wildcards Team 1 Predictions here.

We have already seen Winter Wildcards Swaps released, with 25 Tokens on offer through Objectives and SBCs, and bonus ones said to come via Packs in the FUT Store.
