Future Stars have arrived in EA FC 24’s UT, and of course ‘young’ Wayne Rooney looks about 35

Some fresh cards arrived in EA Sports FC 24’s Ultimate Team over the weekend, and they’re all players who either are or were once wonderkids – Future Stars, if you will. Naturally, Wayne Rooney’s one of the Icons that’s come with the event, and players can’t quite decide whether the fact his supposedly younger in-game model looks about 35 is accurate.

It’s been a rather issue-laden time in EA’s footy sim recently, with an SBC with a design issue having dished out far too many TOTY Messis before it was quickly taken offline and pro clubs not allocating points properly. So, EA’s no doubt hoping that a fresh update and this latest Ultimate Team event can help it to win back some brownie points with the community.

As detailed by the developer, the Future Stars cards that’ve arrived in the game since the promotion launched last thing on Friday are split into two categories.
