Like any other game nowadays, FC 24 comes with a reason to grab the Ultimate Edition as soon as possible. That reason is early access. Those who purchased EA Sports FC 24 Ultimate Edition got to play the game 7 days earlier than owners of the Standard Edition. That version was released at the same time all over the world.

But the standard edition is not the same; it will be released on September 29, 2023, in every region. This means some would be able to play this game before other regions could, which is not that big of a deal as it’s just a matter of hours.
