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.

FIFA 23 EA Play Early Access Details

Fifa 23 Early Release

EA Sports confirmed that players will still get early access to FIFA 23 by using their EA Play subscription service, but the early access isn’t as early as previous years.

EA Play is a subscription service that costs $4.99 per month for Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC. As part of this service, subscribers get member-only rewards including XP Boosts, FUT Packs and a free 10-hour trial of newly-released games, including FIFA 23.

There’s also an EA Play Pro subscription service which costs $14.99 a month which provides unlimited access to FIFA 23 and includes additional rewards, such as 4800 FIFA points on sign-up and 1600 FIFA Points per month for three months.

Prior to previous EA Sports FIFA game releases, being an EA Play subscriber granted players a free 10-hour trial and early access to the game when the FUT Web App was released, which allowed access about 10 days before release.

Ahead of the launch of FIFA 23 however, EA Sports has confirmed that EA Play subscribers will now be able to access the game only three days before the game’s official release date, the same amount of early access as those who have pre-ordered the FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition.

This means EA Play subscribers will be able to access FIFA 23 on  Tuesday, September 27, 2022, three days before FIFA 23’s official release date of Friday, September 30, 2022.

FIFA 23 will be the final EA Sports FIFA title, following the decision of both companies to release their own football simulation games. EA has confirmed that their new game, EA Sports FC, will be released next year.

EA Sticks With Loot Boxes For FIFA 23 Ultimate Team

Fifa 23 Loot Boxes

EA has confirmed it’s sticking with loot boxes for FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.

EA echoed many of its recent comments on Ultimate Team’s card packs, which have come under fire from children’s groups and researchers in recent years for their links to gambling, and from players for enabling pay-to-win in competitive modes.

“We wholeheartedly believe that Ultimate Team and FUT Packs, which have been part of the game for more than a decade, are a part of FIFA that players love – fans love that the game reflects the real-world excitement and strategy of building and managing a squad. Giving players the choice to spend if they want to is fair,” EA’s statement reads.

Last month, the UK government stopped short of taking action on loot boxes, despite finding that players who buy loot boxes are “more likely to experience gambling, mental health, financial and problem gaming-related harms”.

Instead, the government said it does not consider loot boxes to be the same as gambling, and as a result will not make changes to the Gambling Act.

While the government called for stronger protections from across the entire industry and insisted it “will not hesitate to consider legislation if companies do not bring in sufficient measures to keep players safe”, its decision on loot boxes contrasts that of a number of European countries that have brought loot boxes under gambling laws.

For the uninitiated Ultimate Team, which drives hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue for EA each year(doesn’t take a lot of imagination to know why EA will be sticking with loot boxes for FIFA 23 Ultimate Team), revolves around the idea of building a squad of players, which you then use to play in matches, both offline and online.

There are a number of ways you can obtain players in the game, but one of the main methods is through packs of virtual cards. These card packs contain a random assortment of items, including players of varying potency you then use out on the pitch. Generally, the better the player, the lower your chance of obtaining them from a pack. Although they’re not described as such in-game, Ultimate Team’s card packs are loot boxes.

You can buy the card packs with either a virtual currency called FUT Coins, which is earned mostly through gameplay, or with a virtual currency called FIFA Points, which is bought with real-world money.

Fifa 23 officially drops on September 30th.

FIFA 23 Release Date & First Trailer

FIFA 23 Release Date

EA has revealed that FIFA 23 will be available September 30th, will feature same-generation cross-play, a World Cup DLC, and more.

Revealed on the official website, EA’s final FIFA game will be cross-play at launch for the first time, although there is a catch. Players can only play together between the same generation of consoles, meaning those on PlayStation 4 can only play against those on the same platform or on Xbox One. PC players will be in the same pool as players on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

Friends can also only play against each other in online friendlies and FIFA Ultimate Team’s Play a Friend mode. All other modes – FUT Online Friendlies, Online Seasons, FUT Rivals, FUT Champions, and FUT Online Draft – can only be played cross-play through online matchmaking. Players will be able to opt-out of cross-play altogether if they chose to do so.

EA has also announced that free DLC will be released at some point after the initial release, bringing both the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup and FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023 into the game. No release window was given for the DLC.

FIFA 23 has promised to bring more realism and control through its new HyperMotion 2 technology which includes 6,000 unique animations to make players move more authentically than ever before.

Further reveals will be made in the lead-up to the game’s September release date, with EA promising new information on gameplay features on July 27, Career Mode on August 1, Matchday Experience on August 5, Pro Clubs and Volta on August 8, and FIFA Ultimate Team on August 11.

Here’s a look at FIFA 23’s first trailer.
