Career Mode is back in EA FC 24, and so is trying to find the best Regens the game mode has to offer. Regens are the name for the regenerated footballers who replace anyone who retired during your save. 

This year, there will be plenty of great Regens to keep an eye out for as many of the game's greats are close to retirement. Quickly, players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and more will be hanging up their boots for good - that’s where the Regens come in. 

Here is all you need to know about finding Regens in EA FC 24. 

How to find Regens in EA FC 24 Career Mode? 

Fortunately, finding Regens is easy; you just need to ensure you’re keeping an eye on which players will soon be retiring in the game - this can be done by shortlisting them in your Transfer Hub once they announce they will retire this season. After the player retires, follow the steps below, to find them with ease: 

  • Once the player retires, search for a 16-21 year old in the same position, league and Nationality
  • A Regen with similar attributes should be playing for a team in the league they retired (if they aren’t there, check the Free Agents list
  • Just to be sure it is who you’re looking for, they will share the same birthday

That is all you need to know about finding Regens. The players who come through will differ in appearance, attributes, size, and weak foot, but you’re still guaranteed an absolute world-beater of a player.

Finding these players has helped create some of my most exciting saves because you get invested in developing the player and writing the narrative of their career.

In EA FC 24, Regens are randomly created players who replace the older players who end up retiring.

Every year in Career Mode, as you progress through the seasons, players will retire - much like in real life. To stop the database from disappearing completely, it is repopulated with players who are much younger, usually teenagers. They are similar to the players who retired, sharing their nationalities, positions play in and potential. 

If you’re wondering how you can improve your Regens ratings, we have a complete guide breaking down how to increase player ratings in Career Mode as well as a thorough guide on how PlayStyles work in this year's game. For more, check out our EA FC 24 guides
