The game will release on April 13th for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC which is just over six weeks away. Pre-orders are available now and you can do so at JB Hi-Fi now for $79. The game will feature a Management career mode, including drafting and player development. You’ll also be able to create your own clubs, players and stadiums and share them with the world.
There will also be 4 player online and local co-op with cross-play. Commentary will be presented by Anthony Hudson, Hamish McLachlan, Daisy Pearce, Daniel Harford, Kelli Underwood and Jason Bennett.
Alongside the release date, we also got a look at a bunch of new screenshots for the game which shows off a number of teams in-action, as well as our first look at the AFLW in action. There’s also a pretty tasty look at what we assume are the intros for each team.
We got a first look at gameplay late last year for the grand final, and you can see that below:
This is the first AFL game by Melbourne’s Big Ant since AFL Live, with NSW developer Wicked Witch developing the last few games in the series.
We’ll keep you posted as we hear/see more about AFL 23 in the lead-up to our review around launch.
