After 30 years of the landmark EA FIFA football series, its latest game, FIFA 23, is set to hit the scene later this year. EA is celebrating its latest FIFA-branded game with the promise that it will be the most connected, inclusive, ambitious and versatile game yet.
Coming to PlayStation 4 and 5 with 1v1 crossplay modes between versions, FIFA 23 offers innovations never seen before in the world of football video games, whether you’re on the pitch or backstage making different decisions in Career Mode. This FIFA pushes it forward and showcases EA’s growth with the series, offering updated physics, graphics, and for the first time the integration of women’s club football, including a playable FIFA Women’s World Cup. These additions are proof of why EA is calling FIFA 23 the “Game of the World”.
Real football that you control
One of the main goals of FIFA 23 is to turn it into the most authentic game in the history of the series. To do this, EA has improved its HyperMotion 2 motion capture system to make players look more realistic than before. The data captured using this system brings over 6,000 realistic animations from real match captures into the game. Players now run, kick and block with movements so realistic that you might even forget you’re playing a football video game.
EA has introduced several features made possible by this innovative technology. FIFA 23 includes augmented reality replays to make games more immersive. The environments also received updates, including hyper-realistic pitch surfaces and an improved stadium atmosphere, complemented by most of the crowd’s chants and animations in the series.
The world is not the only part of FIFA 23 that has been improved. Players and the sport itself have also been updated, and physics have become more realistic in all parts of the game. One example that directly demonstrates the power of HyperMotion 2’s features is female players and their new authentic movements that would not be possible without new motion capture technology.
With 19,000+ players, 700+ teams, 100 stadiums and 30+ leagues in FIFA 23, you’ll enjoy hours of this new authenticity.
Even more control over the player
Another goal is to make FIFA 23 gameplay allow for even more player action. The new mechanic aims to give you complete control over how you pass, score and move. These additions include a new skill-based shooting mechanic, more intuitive free kicks, penalties, and corner kicks. With a more realistic physics engine, these additions bring another layer of depth to the game and more control over the action.
World of Game Modes
So, where can you enjoy all these achievements in the FIFA formula? FIFA 23 has a variety of modes in which you can experience all the visual and mechanical improvements. One such mode is FUT Moments, where you can create your own squad full of new ICONS, FUT Heroes, and anyone else you can think of using the revamped chemistry system. This updated take on Classic Mode brings even more freedom and creativity to an already free-to-play game.
You can also make history by taking part in the World Cup from the comfort of your own home. The FIFA Men’s World Cup Qatar 2022 and the Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023 are waiting for you to experience for yourself.
The newly added Training Center is perfect for those new to the FIFA series. It includes many challenges and chapters, each specially designed to teach less experienced players the basics of the game and help them improve.
Pro Clubs, Volta Football, and Career Mode open up new ways to interact with FIFA 23. In Pro Club Mode, you can bring your own style to the game with new settings, Drop In improvements, and new perks. Volta Football adds more style points to the game, allowing you to join friends and the rest of the community to show off your avatar in the updated Volta slots. Career mode lets you create a personal player, manage some of the biggest names in the history of the sport, and play throughout the season. It also brings new game moments to the FIFA series for the first time.
And finally, whether you’re using a PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5, you can compete against your friends on the same generation platform in 1v1 modes via crossplay. These different matchup styles span FIFA Ultimate Team, Online Seasons, Online Friendlies and more.
With so many new enhancements and reasons to play, FIFA 23 really does feel like “The Game of the World”. Whether you’re a longtime fan or new to the series, you’ll love FIFA 23. on PlayStation 4 and 5 when it releases later this year. More will be revealed about him and his new additions in the near future.
