    Summing up

On 20 July 2022, EA finally released their first glimpse of the much-awaited instalment to their annual FIFA series. FIFA 23 will be the last instalment featuring licenses from FIFA, thanks to EA‘s split from the global football federation. As such, EA has promised to make FIFA 23 their best version yet. FIFA 22 featured some marked improvements over its predecessor. So, the hype surrounding FIFA 23, with its new features and updates, is quite real. In this article, we’ll provide all the details that we know so far about this upcoming sports simulation game.

Without further ado, let’s get started!

FIFA 23 trailer

As stated earlier, FIFA 23‘s first reveal trailer has finally been released by EA. The trailer gives us a fair glimpse of what we can expect from the latest FIFA game. You can check out the trailer below:

This time, EA has titled the game “The World’s Game”. This could be a dig at FIFA’s split from their partnership with EA. Regardless, the trailer provides information on EA‘s patented HyperMotion technology. This technology utilises Machine Learning algorithms and artificial intelligence to deliver a more realistic feel to the game.

Additionally, Samantha Kerr of Chelsea FC is the first-ever female footballer to be included in the global cover. This is excellent progress as the women’s game starts to make waves worldwide. She’ll be headlining the cover with FIFA 22‘s cover star, Kylian Mbappe of PSG (Paris Saint Germain) fame.

Release date

EA has also provided us with the release date for the game. FIFA 23 will be globally released on 30 September 2022. However, people who purchase the game’s Ultimate Edition will get early access on 27 September, three days before the release of the Standard Edition. The company also provides a 10-hour demo access to the game through their EA Play trial. You could expect the EA Play trial for FIFA 23 to be available a week before the game’s official launch.

Cover stars

FIFA 23 cover

FIFA 23 has made history this time around, with Chelsea FC’s Samantha Kerr as the first female global cover star. For the men’s game, PSG’s Kylian Mbappe returns as the youngster continues to be compared to the game’s elite footballers. Apart from this, a few other players have been roped in as the FIFA 23 ambassadors. These are David Alaba (Real Madrid). Heung-Min Son (Tottenham Hotspurs), Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Phil Foden (Manchester City), Christian Pulisic (Chelsea), and Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich). This is a star-studded lineup, so expect their in-game cards to utilise the game’s meta to its full potential.

PC gets next-gen features

HyperMotion 2.0

EA faced plenty of backlash from PC players when FIFA 22 was released without the latest features. This includes HyperMotion technology, next-gen graphics, and more refined gameplay. At the time, EA had stated that adding these features to the game would significantly increase the system requirements. This would hamper the gameplay for a majority of their PC players, the company claimed. However, it seems that after the pressure of splitting up with FIFA, EA finally caved in and added the next-gen features to keep the PC players’ engagement for further instalments.

Either way, PC players can now take full advantage of their hardware and play the game in line with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S players. This includes HyperMotion 2.0 for dribbling animations, a jockeying system backed by machine learning, new acceleration dynamics based on player body types, updated ball physics, better graphics, and more realistic pitch conditions. As you can see, these are a fair amount of features that were missing from the previous game.

System requirements

Keeping in line with next-gen features, EA released the system requirements for their new PC gameplay. Let’s take a look at them:

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 6600k | AMD Ryzen 5 1600
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti | AMD Radeon RX 570
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • HDD: 100GB

These are the minimum requirements. Let’s take a look at the recommended requirements as well.

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i7 6700 | AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
  • RAM: 12GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 | AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • HDD: 100GB

These specifications are a massive jump from the previous game, with significant upgrades to the processor, GPU, and memory requirements. What’s even more surprising is the 100GB of HDD space that will be required. FIFA 22 required just 50GB of storage space. So, the storage space requirements have been doubled. This could be due to the massive amount of animations and textures that will increase the game’s graphical fidelity.

Pre-orders

FIFA 23 steam

Although the game is releasing at the tail end of September 2022, pre-orders for the game have already started. You can pre-order the game through Steam, Epic Games Store, and EA‘s PC client Origin. The game is available in two editions, Standard and Ultimate. Here’s what you get with the Standard Edition:

  • Team of the Week 1 (TOTW) Player Item (Untradeable)
  • Kylian Mbappe Loan base card for five FIFA Ultimate Team matches.
  • FUT Ambassador Player Pick for Loan, available for three FIFA Ultimate Team matches.
  • One Homegrown Player for FIFA Career Mode. This player will be a youth prospect and have world-class or elite potential.

While this isn’t bad, FIFA 23‘s Ultimate Edition has some excellent pre-order bonuses. Let’s take a look:

  • FIFA World Cup FUT Heroes – one player (Untradeable)
  • 4600 FIFA Points
  • Can access the game three days before global release.
  • Dual Entitlement, which gets you a next-gen version of the game if you purchase an Xbox Series X/S or a PlayStation 5. The FIFA upgrade will be free of cost.
  • Ones To Watch Player (Untradeable)
  • Team of the Week 1 Player (Untradeable)
  • Kylian Mbappe Loan base card for five FIFA Ultimate Team matches.
  • FUT Ambassador Player Pick for Loan, available for three FIFA Ultimate Team matches.
  • One Homegrown Player for FIFA Career Mode. This player will be a youth prospect and have world-class or elite potential.

The Ultimate Edition has quite a worthwhile upgrade over the Standard Edition. However, it costs quite a bit more as well. We’ve listed their costs below:

  • Standard Edition – INR 3,499
  • Ultimate Edition – INR 4,799

Crossplay

EA has also revealed that since FIFA 23 will make the next generation jump to the PC platform, PC players will join hands with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S players for FIFA 23 crossplay. Basically, if you own the next-generation version of the game on any of these consoles, you’ll be able to play the game online with friends, regardless of whichever console they use. This implies that PC players will be able to play one-on-one online matches, including FIFA Ultimate Team matches with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S owners, and vice versa.

This will also do away with the delayed matchmaking that has plagued older generation FIFA PC players for the past few years. Matchmaking will now be swift and more convenient. To keep track of both Global and Local Leaderboards, EA will also launch a widget called EA Social. This app will allow players to send and receive friend invites across different platforms. Moreover, the app will display other information, such as their cross-platform compatibility and the platform that they’re using. At the moment, the app is still under development.

FUT Transfer Market

Since some significant changes are happening in the background, the FIFA Ultimate Team Transfer Market will also see some changes. This will work differently from online matchmaking, and the transfer pools are grouped separately. Nintendo Switch and PC players will have their own individual transfer market pools. Basically, PC players can trade cards with other PC players only, and the same goes for Switch owners. They will have to trade with other Nintendo Switch owners.

However, the mainstream console owners will share a larger transfer pool. PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia owners will share a massive transfer pool. They’ll be able to trade across platforms, regardless of the generation.

Women’s Leagues

FIFA 16 was the first FIFA game to include women’s international teams. Since then, the women’s game has seen a meteoric rise in popularity, especially after the Women’s Euro tournament. FIFA 23 is the first game to feature women’s football at the club level, with two leagues available to play – Barclay’s Women’s Super League and the French Division 1 Feminine league. The former will feature teams such as Chelsea, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur. The French Division has teams such as Lyon, PSG, and Paris FC.

EA has stated that more teams will be added in subsequent updates to the game.

World Cup Mode

Since FIFA is holding the World Cup in Qatar this year, the tournament will kick off towards the end of November 2022. EA has promised that FIFA 23 will also have a dedicated playable World Cup mode. This isn’t anything new, as EA did include the 2018 World Cup mode and UEFA Euro 2012. However, things will be slightly different in FIFA 23. The upcoming game will feature not one, but two World Cup modes.

The game will feature both the men’s and women’s World Cup modes, with the official presentation of both tournaments. FIFA Ultimate Team will also see World Cup-based objectives and modes added to the mix for exciting in-game rewards!

FIFA 23 Career Mode Trailer

FIFA‘s Career Mode and Manager Mode have been contentious in recent years. While the likes of FIFA 07 had fewer animations and player dynamics, these games featured a surprisingly in-depth Manager Mode. However, recent FIFA entries have lacked on this front. Manager Mode received some noteworthy changes in FIFA 21, but none of it was worth writing home about. The Player Career Mode was revamped with a skill system and more control over the type of player you could create. While it was a step in the right direction, it lacked the power to draw players for more than two or three in-game seasons.

This time, EA has changed quite a lot in the Career Mode gameplay in a bid to keep their audiences in a post-FIFA age. Recently, they released a trailer for the game, which you can check out below:

Career Mode features

As you can see from the trailer, plenty has been changed. Let’s take a look at the updates in detail.

Player Career

Player Career Mode has been revamped to make it more in line with the NBA 2K series. The latter has always featured excellent presentations and tight storylines. Although FIFA 23‘s Player Career Mode may not feature a complete storyline, plenty of changes are worth mentioning. This time, your player’s personality will be based on their behaviour on and off the pitch. How your player behaves on the pitch will be analysed by the algorithm to categorise the player into one of three personalities – Maverick, Heartbeat, and Virtuoso. Based on the personality, certain attributes will be boosted as well.

Players will also have the option to invest their wages into their appearance, training, and overall self-improvement. Again, this will reflect in the ultimate personality categorisation. How you play with your footballer will determine his career, increasing the mode’s replayability.

Manager Mode

Manager Mode enables you to create your own club or take your club from the depths of the league to the very top of international club football. Transferring players in and out of your squad is also essential to creating your dream team. This time, EA has introduced a Transfer Analysis system that will analyse your player transfer and provide feedback on your transfer success. Moreover, it will include information on how the new player fits best into your team. Dynamic Moments have also been introduced to make the manager’s interaction with the players more authentic in key moments of your managerial career.

Finally, there’s also the option to step into the shoes of the world’s biggest managers. These include the likes of Thomas Tuchel of Chelsea FC, Antonio Conte in Tottenham Hotspur, and Pep Guardiola of Manchester City. The targets set for these managers will be realistic, and you can determine how well their manager careers turn out to be.

New Menu

Lastly, there’s a new menu design in both Player Career and Manager Mode to induce convenience. Previous games have featured some counterintuitive menus, making navigating between segments difficult. EA claims that they have fixed this issue in FIFA 23, making navigating through menus and segments much easier!

FIFA 23 Matchday Experience

As we all know, one of the biggest reasons for EA‘s success with FIFA is the authentic presentation and licensing. This year, EA has gone all out in introducing new changes to the matchday experience. You can check out the changes below:

In this trailer, we can see that quite a few changes have been made to the in-game feel to make FIFA 23 seem more lifelike than any of its predecessors. The biggest change has been made to the pitch itself. EA has tuned the grass’s look, length, and feel to make it a living piece of the overall environment. This time, knee slides and tackles will degrade the pitch, and the subsequent damage will also be seen throughout the rest of the match. Although this is a minor change to the current generation console versions, the game’s entire look is a major change for PC players compared to FIFA 22.

Additionally, the crowd has seen some changes. There are now more clothing items, body types, and faces to make the audience feel more lively and varied during special matches. New camera angles have been added too, especially during moments such as penalty kicks and goal kicks, making it similar to the broadcast of an actual football match. Moreover, drone shots and cinematics of fans getting excited before their team’s match begins will also be shown in the pre-match buildup.

When you’re in the match, it’s the goals that do the talking. Although EA has generally improved the goalscoring animations and camera angles in bits and pieces, they’ve changed things completely for this year’s game. HyperMotion2 technology assists in exhibiting different camera angles and statistics for impeccable goals, such as those with the Power Shot. Furthermore, net physics has been changed to make it more realistic. “3D geometry” helps the net feel authentic as it reacts to the ball physics and shines in the light, making the act of scoring goals all the more satisfying.

For the new players, FIFA‘s training system and visuals have been revamped. New tools have been added to ensure that everyone gets the hang of the new Power Shot and set piece systems as well. Finally, new referees have been added to the game, with the biggest change being female referees for all-male matches. This feature will be prevalent in Pro Clubs and FIFA Ultimate Team to bring more authenticity to the game!

Pro Clubs

Speaking of Pro Clubs, FIFA 23 will bring quite a few changes to Pro Clubs this year. For the uninitiated, FIFA‘s Pro Clubs mode is one where 11 players can control a single player each on the pitch and battle it out with other 11 players in full matches. The aim of the mode is to become the best team in the world, as you battle with your friends to progress through divisions.

This year’s Pro Clubs mode has a few detailed changes that you can view through the trailer below:

If you’ve taken a look at the trailer, you can see that there’s quite a bit to discuss. So, let’s check out the new features in a bit more detail!

Shared Season Progression

FIFA‘s Volta Mode has held the progression system for the longest time. This was then added to the Player Career Mode in FIFA 22. However, Volta’s progression has now been added to Pro Clubs as well. This implies that winning rewards and procuring in-game currencies in either mode can be used for purchasing items from the other mode. For example, tattoos from the Volta Store can be bought and used on the custom character to be used in Pro Clubs.

Drop-Ins

Pro Clubs’ drop-in system is meant for players to jump into the ongoing matches of friends, allowing them to take control of a player on the pitch. The match timing for Pro Clubs has been reduced to four minutes, allowing for faster finishes and easier switch between lobbies. Furthermore, you won’t have to sit through penalty shootouts either, as a Golden Goal system will be introduced to end matches quickly. The first team to score a goal in extra time wins the match!

Perks

Pro Clubs’ grinding mechanics have been gruelling in previous entries. However, FIFA 23 is set to make things slightly easier and more exciting. EA has introduced more levels and lowered the XP requirements of each level, allowing you to level up quicker and unlock Perks. New Perks such as ‘Chase Down’ and ‘Poacher’ have been added to the game, allowing more dynamism in the gameplay. Four new Perks have been added, with ‘Chase Down’ and ‘Interceptive’ Perks meant for defence. For the offence, ‘Chance Creation’ and the ‘Poacher’ Perks are added to make the attacking scenarios more lively.

Skill Games

The Skill Games change is a helpful way to increase your Pro Clubs progression while you wait for your friend to join. Previously, players had to wait for long durations until their friend jumped into the game. This time, however, players can work on beating their scores in Skill Games, either with their friend or with a bot. This change is excellent for seeing who’s the better player and progressing in Pro Clubs. A small number of the points gained with Skill Games will be added to the progression of the Pro Club season. Quite a worthwhile incentive there, don’t you think?

Summing up

With FIFA 23 releasing in the next couple of months, there’s plenty of time for EA to reveal more details about the game. Moreover, the next-gen upgrade for PC players provides enough incentives to make the final EA FIFA game a worthwhile investment. Keep an eye on this space as we will continue to update it with more information about the game, including player ratings and leagues. What do you think about the next iteration of FIFA?
