After an onslaught of Black Friday packs for the EA Sports FC 24 Ultimate Team mode, things should return to normal soon – or, well, what’s considered “normal” in Chernobyl: EA FC 24 seems to be going Radioactive.

Coming with a card design that looks positively poisonous, Radioactive will feature special cards with upgraded ratings and is going to introduce more Evolutions into the game, similar to how the Centurions promo handled it earlier this year, as far as the ever active leaker community can tell. Apparently, each Radioactive player provides two chemistry points to their nation, league, and club.

Here’s everything you need to know about the EA FC 24 Radioactive leaks and start time.

EA FC 24 Radioactive: start time

It’s currently unclear if EA FC 24 Radioactive is going to start this coming Friday, December 1, 2023, or the one afterwards on December 8, 2023, as we don’t know how long EA Sports will drag out the Black Friday offerings. These are thought to last two weeks, which would set up the Radioactive promo for the coming week.

No matter which Friday it’ll be, the start time should be 10am PT, which means the following for your time zone:

  • December 1/8, 10am PT
  • December 1/8, 12pm CT
  • December 1/8, 1pm ET
  • December 1/8, 6pm GMT
  • December 1/8, 7pm CET
  • December 1/8, 10:30pm IST
  • December 2/9, 1am CST
  • December 2/9, 2am KST/JST
  • December 2/9, 4am AEDT
  • December 2/9, 6am NZDT

EA FC 24 Radioactive: leaks

Naturally, we’re already seeing a bunch of player leaks for Radioactive, which itself indicates that a release on December 1 may be more realistic than one a week later – in that case, these leaks would be very early indeed. Sources like Donk, FUTZone, and Asy have posted a high number of players allegedly coming as part of this promo, and we’ve compiled the full list below:

  • Karim Benzema – Al Ittihad
  • Samantha Kerr – Chelsea FC
  • Lionel Messi – Inter Miami
  • Federico Valverde – Real Madrid
  • N’Golo Kanté – Al Ittihad
  • Ronald Araújo – FC Barcelona
  • Khvicha Kvaratskhelia – SSC Napoli

Please be aware that none of these names are officially confirmed to be part of the promo at this time. Though EA FC Ultimate Team leakers are generally very reliable, plans can change and the odd mistake is easy to make. In addition, it’s unknown which players will be available via packs and which via Squad Building Challenges (SBCs) or Objectives.
