Play Madden 23 With Your Friends

Play Madden 23 With Friends

Playing against friends is just more fun. Yes, Madden has some great single player game modes like Face of the Franchise, but that doesn’t compare to the thrill of beating your buddy. Whether you are playing your pal just for the satisfaction of beating them or playing for some real cash on GamerSaloon, head to head action is where it’s at. Luckily, Madden23 has delivered on a bunch of different ways to do that, let’s take a look at a few of them.

Play Now (Head to Head)

This is head to head Madden as you’ve always known it and love it. Play a buddy across the street or across the ocean. Customize the game as you want, and you are off to the races. But, and it’s a huge but…you need to unlock the game mode first. You will need to reach Level 4 on the Field to get in on the action. So play challenges to get the XP you need to keep leveling up.

Superstar KO

In our opinion this is a downright fantastic game mode but some people hate it and here’s why; limited playbook and no audibles to start. That is the draw for us, as it allows you to work on stopping someone who tries to run the same play.

The Yard

This is our favorite game mode. You can take your Face of the Franchise career mode and hit the high school fields for a 6 v 6 backyard style game. The action is fast, you’ll need a high-octane
pass offense to succeed.

Madden Ultimate Team

What is more fun than using a hand picked team that you created? If you’ve built a stacked team, it’s probably time to test drive the roster against some buddies.

Franchise Mode

If you have 31 friends or co-workers and can muster up the time to organize it, this is where it is at. You will need to win on the field and in the press box as you manage your roster, train, coach and ultimately compete. If you’ve played previous Madden Franchise modes, you might be thinking, NO THANKS, but it’s clear that EA has been listening to the community. Franchise Mode now offers more efficient scouting, more realistic drafts and trades.

Have fun out there and don’t forget to check out GamerSaloon.com and play the game you love for real
cash.

Madden 23 Franchise Saves Deleted by Data Storage Error at EA

Maddens often ridiculed Franchise mode had a different kind of issue for users this time around. Some players who logged in to Madden 23 over the holidays experienced an issue related to data storage that corrupted their Franchise files — causing irreparable damage to some. Initial estimates are that 60% of League Data will not be recoverable.

According to the team at EA, the issue ran from December 28 around 2:45 pm EST to December 29 around 12:45 am. Players trying to log in to the Madden Franchise server around this time experienced a data storage error resulting in corruption of their Online Franchise, Connected Franchise Mode Leagues, and Face of the Franchise files.

EA says its teams are attempting to restore those files, but they estimate only 40% will be recoverable, in some instance players will have permanently lost their saves.

For those who didn’t log in during that window, you appear safe from the data storage issue and should be able to play. As for anyone who experienced a loss, there doesn’t seem to be anything you can do until the update next week.

Is FIFA 23 Crossplay or Cross-Platform?

FIFA 23 Crossplay

FIFA 23 crossplay allows players from different platforms to face off against each other for the first time in the series history.

You can now play Fifa with your friends, regardless of which console they own. Earlier this year, EA ran a FIFA 22 crossplay functionality test, giving those who owned one of the current generation of consoles a new experience.

FIFA 23 crossplay modes

With the exception of Pro Clubs and any of the co-op specific modes, every other online-enabled mode features cross-platform play in FIFA 23.

Here’s every mode FIFA 23 crossplay supports:

  • FUT Online Friendlies
  • Online Seasons
  • FUT Rivals
  • FUT Champions
  • FUT Online Draft
Can PC players face off against PlayStation 5 players using FIFA 23 crossplay?

Yes, PC players can play against PlayStation 5, Xbox Sereis X/S, and Stadia players. The PC version of FIFA 23 now sports the next-generation engine, which is the same version as the Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5.

Which platforms share a transfer market in FIFA 23?

FIFA 23 is split up into two versions of the game, but the transfer markets mostly aren’t segmented. FIFA 23 on PC has its own transfer market, all other consoles share one.

Does Madden 23 Have Crossplay?

Madden 23 Crossplay

Does Madden NFL 23 have crossplay multiplayer?

Madden NFL 23 did not have cross-platform multiplayer or crossplay in any form at time of release.

The Madden NFL series has never had crossplay and EA Sports has made no mention on this changing with Madden NFL 23 going forward.

Madden NFL 23 crossplay is completely nonexistent in any form. Not only are PlayStation, Xbox, and PC players all segregated from one another, it’s also likely that cross-generation play won’t be included either. This means that PlayStation 4 and 5 players, as well as Xbox One and Series X/S players, will all be prevented from playing with each other.
