FC 24 Styles of play - Explanations, Functioning and Guides

One of the main new features of EA FC 24, Playing styles. These are special skills that players benefit from and that better reflect the way players actually play on the pitch. We explain how they work in this guide.


Until now in FIFA, players with similar overall grades were equally effective on the pitch. From now on, the styles of play will reflect their personalities and make them more effective on the pitch. each player completely different. They are therefore more or less adapted to different situations and positions.

The Game Styles+ are enhanced versions of these signature abilities that only world-class players possess. While a player can possess up to 6 styles of play, they can only possess one Style of Play+.

When a player benefits from their Style of Play, the icon appears below their head. This allows you to identify your opponents' strengths, but bear in mind that your opponents can also see yours.


There are 34 different game styles, as well as their enhanced versions, corresponding to 6 main categories.

[Attack] [Passes] [Ball Control]
[Defence] [Physics] [Guardian]


ATTACK

The styles of play in the "Attack" category are, as the name suggests, those that you want to have on your attackers and, more specifically, your striker. They all serve to improve your chances of putting the ball in the back of the net. Even if it's not essential, try to ensure that your striker and wingers have at least one style of play in this category.
