Additionally, some players encountered another issue on the EA app. Despite ordering the Ultimate Edition, the game showed up as the Standard Edition.

@EASPORTSFC Fraud !!!! I have ordered Ultimate edition via steam and EA APP says standard edition !!!! I cannot access the game and paid 4.5k. This is absolutely pathetic. Spoke to their chat support and they said its a global issue and trying to solve asap. No resolution so far.

This discrepancy left players unable to play the game they had been eagerly waiting for.

Furthermore, a frustrating error message, ‘This EA account is restricted from accessing online features in EA FC 24’, is preventing some players from even launching the game.
