EA FC 24 finally allows players to keep their favorite Ultimate Team cards relevant throughout a game’s life cycle. Here is everything you need to know about Evolutions.

A steep power curve makes using your favorite Ultimate Team card nearly impossible for longer than a few months. FIFA constantly releases new promos with higher overall players.
