Speaking on the launch of EA FC 24 in Nigeria, Chief Operation Officer of Gamr, Kunmi Adenipebi told Pulse Sports: “It’s pretty exciting because it’s actually a new era because FIFA is gone, it’s now EA FC and you’re already seeing people saying the dynamics are different, the gameplay is different (new gameplay, new tactics), basically it’s a new world of virtual football playing.”
Speaking on Gamr’s initiative to launch the new game in Lagos, Nigeria, he said:
“Basically, it’s a launch and not a tournament. We just wanted a couple of people to come out, have fun and win prizes. We are giving people that don’t have access to it that first feel, and giving a couple of people the opportunity actually own a copy of EA SPORTS FC 24 CD, because we know the game is actually very expensive now. It’s almost 70K to buy it. So yeah, three people are going to home with 70K each for the game.”
