EA SPORTS have officially revealed FC 24’s Gameplay Deep Dive Trailer to give fans a sneak peek of what to expect in the post-FIFA era.

EA FC 24 will feature three new innovations - HyperMotionV, PlayStyles and Frostbite Engine, the company announced last week during the official Trailer unveiling in Amsterdam. 

However, EA gave fans more insight into how these technologies would work in the new title as well as other features to expect from the upcoming release.

1. HyperMotionV - Available only on PS5, Xbox Series S|X, and PC

Driving the biggest leap forward in gameplay authenticity and realism, HyperMotionV translates the rhythm and fluidity of real-world football into FC 24 using volumetric data of more than 180 top-tier matches from competitions like the UEFA Men’s and Women’s Champions League, Premier League and LaLiga EA SPORTS.

What this essentially means, is that movement in EA SPORTS FC 24 comes from teams like Real Madrid, PSG, and Manchester City and that the animations of hundreds of in-game players are influenced by actions of real-world professional footballers on the pitch.

HyperMotionv is made possible via the combination of Advanced 11v11 Match Capture and Machine Learning.

Volumetric data helps to power HyperMotionV—full teams playing full matches in the top competitions around the world, captured live by a bank of cameras around the stadiums.

This data from players influence how they move in-game.

EA SPORTS FC 24 used machine learning to enhance the movement between Technical Dribble touches and to evolve the ML-Flow feature.

2. PlayStyles and PlayStyles+

Optimised by real-world Opta, PlayStyles dimensionalise athletes, going beyond overall ratings to bring to life the on-pitch abilities that make players special. 

Each PlayStyle affects gameplay, giving players unique capabilities you’ll see and feel that make their way of playing more authentic. 

During FC 24’s Deep Dive gameplay, it was revealed that PlayStyles+ will also be arriving the new game.

PlayStyles+ enhances those signature abilities to a world-class standard, like Erling Haaland’s Power Shot, or Sam Kerr’s Finesse Shot—reflecting elite players’ abilities to play at a level that few others can reach.
