FIFA 23 will release on September 30th for those that buy the standard edition with earlier access happening on September 27th for Ultimate Edition. The game will release on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, PS4 and Xbox One. For the first time ever, the game will allow for cross-play so those on PS5/XSX/PC can all play with each other and those on PS4/Xbox One will be able to play with each other. This means that for the first time the PC version will be in-line with the next-gen versions.
EA has confirmed that both the FIFA World Cup 2022 and FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 will be added to the game as post-launch updates at no addition cost.
The game will include women’s club teams with Barclay’s Women’s Super League and the Division 1 Arkema joining over 19,000 players across 700+ teams.
Modes such as Career Mode, Pro Clubs, Volta and Ultimate Team will all be back with a new Training Centre coaching system improving the tutorial to teach newcomers the fundamentals of gameplay before jumping into a match. More of all of these modes will be revealed at a later time.
HyperMotion2 will take things forward to create full intensity matches that translate millions of data points in real time to create a more natural and realistic movement, but there will also be more about that later.
