The official faces of EA Sports FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition are Sam Kerr and Kylian Mbappe. While Kerr is the first female soccer player to dress a global cover for FIFA, the Frenchman is making his third consecutive appearance on the cover of the wildly popular video game.

With the release of their first FIFA game in 1993, EA Sports made its debut and has since gone on to inspire countless new followers. They added women to the program when Americans Alex Morgan and Christine Sinclair debuted on the covers of game in 2015 for America’s market.

Kerr’s appearance on the cover is yet another illustration of how women’s soccer’s popularity is only increasing and how EA Sports consistently adapts to the times.

Who is Kylian Mbappe?

Mbappe is regarded as one of the top soccer players in the world and a French sports legend. He was born and reared in Paris.

He made his Ligue 1 debut in 2015 with Monaco before making a loan move to PSG in 2017, at the expense of Real Madrid, the team he grew up supporting. Since then, Mbappe has remained in Paris, and he recently signed a contract through 2025 that makes him the highest-paid footballer in the world.

He made his World Cup debut with the French team in 2018. Mbappe joined Brazilian superstar Pele, who made history in 1958, as the only other teenager to score in a World Cup final when he did it in Russia.

In addition to winning their second World Cup championship, France defeated Croatia 4-2 as Mbappe solidified his place on the international stage.

Who is Sam Kerr?

Australian forward Kerr has been a mainstay of women’s soccer for the past ten years.

In 2019, she became the first Australian player—man or woman—to achieve a hat trick at a World Cup after making her World Cup debut in 2011. On the international scene, the 28-year-old has carried that momentum further, guiding the Matildes to their best-ever semifinal berth at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

She began her club career in Australia before relocating to the NWSL in 2013. Until she signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with Chelsea in 2019, she kept dividing her time between Australia and the United States.

Since joining the Blues, Kerr has won two FA Cups and established himself as the first player in soccer history to take home the Golden Boot in three different competitions.

When does FIFA 23 release?

Although there is no official release date set at this time, all indications point to the end of September or the beginning of October.

Fans may wait for the entire trailer to be released on YouTube on Wednesday, July 20 at 12:00 E.T.

What distinguishes EA Sports FIFA’s basic and ultimate editions?

The standard edition of FIFA 22 came with the video game, a Team of the Week card that could be used on a player of the week designated with a boost that was greater than usual, the ability to employ Mbappe and another star in select matches, and a promising up-and-coming in the career mode team.

These features and more might be found in the ultimate edition. Access to a four-day presale, 4,600 FIFA points, and one more card to use on a player new to a certain club are some of the extra benefits.

The ultimate edition is sure to have a ton of exciting features, but fans will have to wait to see what FIFA has in store for the newest model.

Who designed the FIFA 23 cover?

In the initial release, Kerr is positioned on the left, leaning into the picture, with Mbappe seated next to her.

Mbappe is dressed in his Paris Saint-Germain jersey and has one foot on a soccer ball. His shirt has the French flag and the word GOAT inscribed across the band on the left arm.

Kerr is currently dressed in her Chelsea uniform. She is sporting yellow cleats, just like Mbappe.

How much will FIFA 23 cost?

Depending on the brand and device generation, the regular version will cost between $59.99 and $69.99, according to FifPlay. However, it is anticipated that the Ultimate Edition would cost $99.99.

Will FIFA 23 be cross-play compatible?

The option to play against other players who are using different software is one of the greatest enhancements that is expected to be added to the game.

FIFA was anticipated to include the feature in their future edition, considerably enhancing the options for players, according to Tom Henderson’s initial report from back in February. Fans have reason to be happy even if this rumor will probably be addressed in the Wednesday announcement.
