Now, the introduction of a feature that will allow players and addicts alike to continue their progress from the previous editions is set to be a game-changer.

This motion-matching technology is expected to make the game as real as possible, with data from football matches in real life and also translating real players’ movements into the game.

This shift provides a more realistic animation and genuine match context experience for players. 

Inclusion of Women’s Football

The biggest paradigm shift in the FM24 is the inclusion of women, a feature that has never been part of the FM franchise.

Women’s Football finding its way into the game has been noted as a crucial step in contributing to the growth of the women’s game.

The developers highlighted that while they faced challenges with accurately representing women’s playing careers due to data issues, their addition to the game will play a vital role in their development. 

Legacy and Future

With the 20th instalment of the current series, FM24 is expected to mark a milestone shift. 

Following the acknowledgement of a historical focus on men’s football and a move to change that in the next edition, the game has shown a desire to be more inclusive and a part of the broader growth and legacy of the sport.
