EA Sports FC 24 Ultimate Team Heroes Explained
EA Sports FC 24 Ultimate Team boasts a collection of rare player items known as Heroes, paying homage to the sport's legendary former players. These esteemed Hero players hold a prestigious position, just one step below the coveted Icon status, meticulously selected for their exceptionally successful careers. Adding to their allure, these Heroes bring unique chemistry benefits to the teams they grace.
Every EA FC 24 Ultimate Team Hero is associated with a specific league in which they excelled during their career. Once integrated into a team alongside players from the same league, these Heroes enjoy chemistry boosts while also elevating the chemistry of their teammates.
Additionally, Heroes extend their chemistry benefits to players from the same nation as them. The chemistry system has undergone significant reworking for FIFA 23, eliminating the need for players to be positioned directly beside others from the same league or nation to receive or grant chemistry. You can expect some changes in the chemistry mechanism for EA Sports FC 24 Ultimate Team Heroes as well.
