FIFA 23: Here Is All You Need To Know About The EA SPORTS Video Game


EA Sports is on the verge of launching FIFA 23. While its release will signal the end of an era for the venerable series, there are some rather interesting improvements in store.

In this article, Futballnews has gathered everything about FIFA 23 that you need to know, including the features, cover celebrity, release date, and Ultimate Team.

The final installment of a series that EA Sports has been creating since the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive era will be FIFA 23. However, this is not intended to be a straightforward data update before moving on to EA Sports FC.

Two female leagues, two World Cups, and a ton of gameplay changes are all part of the series’ farewell. This guide covers all of those changes, as well as the first FIFA 23 trailer and a ton of brand-new Ultimate Team information.

Where can I watch the debut trailer for FIFA 23?

Naturally, this place. It was reasonable to question if EA might postpone the release of the first FIFA 23 trailer given that there was no E3 this year. They did, but just barely.

When will FIFA 23 be available?

This one is relatively simple. FIFA is always discontinued by EA during a specified period. The release day for FIFA 20 was September 24, 2019. On October 9, 2020, FIFA 21 launched. The release date of FIFA 22 was October 1, 2021.

All of those dates are Fridays, and FIFA 21’s release was delayed by the global epidemic, which makes sense given how it affected development.

Indeed, EA’s last-ever FIFA game complies with those constraints. The official release date of FIFA 23 is this coming Friday, September 30, 2022.

Who will appear on the FIFA 23 Cover?

Two players share the cover honors this year, making some history in the process. For the third year in a row, Kylian Mbappe is the cover athlete for FIFA 23. He most certainly signed a three-year contract before FIFA 21, but EA would never make such an announcement in the media.

Forward Sam Kerr of Chelsea and Australia is also included in the Ultimate Team edition box with Mbappe. She is the first female cover star to ever be featured internationally.

In Australia and New Zealand, Kerr also has the box to herself; people in other regions can get her version of the package as an Amazon exclusive.

Independent website FIFplay conducted a FIFA 23 cover vote in the run-up to release. Riyah Mahrez, the new teammate of Erling Haaland, took home the prize instead of Mbappe or other megastars like them. The captain from Algeria received 10,000 votes.

What pre-order bonuses are available for FIFA 23?

EA has stated that the series’ now-customary pre-order bonuses are heavily reliant on FUT items. What you receive if you purchase the Ultimate Edition featuring Kerr and Mbappe on the cover is as follows:

  • FIFA World Cup Hero item (so long as you pre-order before August 22)
  • Ones To Watch item
  • Week 1 TOTW item
  • 4,600 FIFA Points
  • Kylian Mbappe 5-match loan item
  • Alphonso Davies/Son Heung-Min/Vinicius Jr 3-match loan player pick
  • Career mode homegrown talent
  • Three days of early access
  • Dual entitlement across PS4/PS5 or Xbox One/Xbox Series X

What you get in return for pre-purchasing the standard edition is as follows:

  • Week 1 TOTW item
  • Kylian Mbappe 5-match loan item
  • Alphonso Davies/Son Heung-Min/Vinicius Jr 3-match loan player pick
  • Career mode homegrown talent

How will EA handle the Russian teams and players in FIFA 23?

The game’s ongoing Russian-Ukrainian ties once more have an impact in this area. Spartak Moscow, Lokomotiv Moscow, and CSKA Moscow were all kicked out of FIFA 22 in March.

The Russian national team, as well as Russian club kits and players in Ultimate Team, vanished as well. (However, packs of legendary figures like Lev Yashin and Alexander Mostovoi are still accessible.)

Currently, there are no Russian clubs or national teams in FIFA 23. Another piece of information removed in that March purge, Spartak Moscow’s Otkritie Arena, is likewise absent this time around.

Will there be any changes to FIFA Ultimate Team?

Chemistry has been altered dramatically. Players from the same team or league are still rewarded when they are lined up together, but they are not required to be close to one another. The old loyalty system and team chemistry have both been completely eliminated.

Additionally, position objects have been rearranged. Previously, you could use these to change players from one position to another on the field, such as from LW to LF or CM to CAM. These cards no longer indicate a new position. They allow you to transfer a player to one of his recognized auxiliary positions instead. As a result, Fernandinho from CDM to CB or Joao Cancelo from RB to LB could both be substituted.

After FIFA 23, what happens to the series?

FIFA International Soccer made its Mega Drive debut in December 1993, and it has since grown to be the most popular sports simulation in the world. But this is the last game that EA has created for it.

I’ve talked about what this could mean elsewhere on GamesRadar, but starting in 2023, EA’s football games will be rebranded as EA Sports FC. Increased creativity—possibly even a return to the days of FIFA 11’s Creation Center—is likely to be a huge gain. Even the possibility of switching between virtual and actual matches exists.

“I can assure you that the only authentic, real game that has the FIFA name will be the best one available for gamers and football fans,” says president Gianni Infantino. “The FIFA name is the only global, original title. FIFA 23, FIFA 24, FIFA 25 and FIFA 26, and so on – the constant is the FIFA name and it will remain forever and remain THE BEST.”

The first of these non-sim games, which will be released under the FIFA brand before the World Cup in Qatar, is also in the company’s plans.
