Despite the split from FIFA, EA Sports FC will feature all the modes we’ve grown accustomed to over the years, including Ultimate Team, and course, the Ones To Watch (OTW), players who have excelled or changed clubs and have special attention given to them in their new positions. This is naturally an important feature that players are keeping an eye out for, and want to know more about its implementation in EA Sports FC.
So if you're curious about this feature as well and want to know more about its arrival in EA's new football title, then you're in the right place. Below, we will be discussing the EA Sports FC OTW release date, leaks, details, and much more.
EA Sports FC - OTW Release date
As the first promo of the Ultimate Team campaign, the anticipated EA Sports FC 24 Ones to Watch release date is expected to coincide with the worldwide release on September 29. The mechanics of the promo will likely follow the same pattern as in previous FIFA titles. If you're unfamiliar with how Ones to Watch works, you can refer to one of our comprehensive guides on the subject.
In FIFA 23, players with early access were treated to an exclusive Squad Building Challenge for an OTW Angel Di Maria. It's possible that a similar offering could be available again, with the challenge launching at the beginning of early access. This year, early access is rumored to begin one week prior to the worldwide release, on September 22.
Typically, the Ones to Watch promo runs for two weeks, but in FIFA 23, it was shortened to one week due to the congested schedule caused by a winter World Cup. We'll have to wait and see what EA announces for the FC 24 OTW campaign.
