FIFA 23 Leak: Major Changes Coming for Ultimate Team


Ultimate Team will be receiving some new content this year, with new Icons and FUT Heroes being added to the roster. It also appears FIFA 23 fans will see a significant shift in a major core feature, after it was revealed that Ultimate Team’s position change functionality is set for a reset.

According to respected FUT leakers, FIFA 23 will overhaul how position modifiers work, an Ultimate Team feature that has gone untouched for years.

In FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, as well as previous releases, position changes are restricted. Cards can be packed or bought to alter a player’s positioning, such as converting a LM to LW, or CAM to CM.

This is all set to change in FIFA 23 if the leaks are to be believed. The information that was leaked states that FUT 23 players will have secondary positions that they can play in, based on how they play in real life.

This would mean that a winger that has also been deployed through the middle can be converted to a striker, which if true opens up tons of options for squad building and chemistry links.

Changes will be still be achieved through an in-game consumable, but it will be a generic card instead of a specific position switch.

We’ll have to wait for the first in-depth trailer to see the change in action, and fans will be able to try it for themselves during the FIFA 23 beta.

Madden 23 Player Ratings Reveal

Madden 23 Rating Release Date

With no EA Play Live scheduled this summer, it’s not clear exactly when we can expect our next look into Madden NFL 23, but based on previous years the next big event surrounding the game is probably the Madden 23 player ratings reveal.

Madden 23’s August 19th release date was officially announced last week. Prior to the release date announcement the big revel was that of the 99′ Club. Since the announcement, EA launched its Closed Beta and introduced its new FieldSENSE mechanic, which will only be available on next-gen consoles.

When will EA reveal the player ratings for Madden 23?

Much like the NFL Draft, EA creates buildup for its Madden releases through a string of different events and press releases, drumming up conversation and debate. For both Madden 22 and Madden 21, EA teamed up with ESPN to host a week-long event, complete with special programming dedicated to player ratings.

Madden 22’s Ratings Week took place during the week of July 25 to July 30, while Madden 21’s Ratings Week ran from July 13 through July 17. Both of those titles released in late August. With Madden 23 having a similar release date of August 19, the player ratings will more then likely be revealed mid- to late-July.

We will have the full player ratings when they are released.

Madden NFL 23 Closed Beta First Impressions

Madden 23 Closed Beta Impressions

The NFL is evolving into a passing league, and it appears Madden will follow suit.

EA Sports releases a new version of Madden every year, rarely changing at its core. Madden 23 Closed Beta so far reminds us of Madden 22, Madden 21, and basically, every game in the franchise over the past 10 years or so. And while it looks and feels very similar, it appears that EA is attempting to iron out some of the major issues that have defined the series experience since the 90s.

The closed beta only offered the standard quick play mode, which means we didn’t get the chance to do a deep dive. But we did get a look at the ways EA is attempting to shaking up Madden at its core.

The first thing that sticks out is that passing has become much more intuitive. Madden quarterbacks have had a limited set of arm motions, dart throws and lobs. In Madden 23, the passing mechanics appear to be completely reworked. The pace on your throws is determined by the amount of time you hold down the button, and you’re given much more control over ball location.

The changes in tackling animations are also something that you notice almost immediately as well. EA has stated that Madden 23’s tackling animations are more realistic and less likely to result in unrealistic situations.

Time will tell, but it looks like big changes are coming.

Report: FIFA 22 Packs Use “Arsenal Of Tricks” To Exploit Players

FUT 22 Packs

A report on loot boxes, written by the Norwegian Consumer Council, has targeted FIFA 22 packs for misleading players about their odds of getting rewards.

The NCC states that the companies use “layers of virtual currencies to mask or distort real-world monetary costs”.

The report, published on May 31st, is an investigation into “how the gaming industry exploits consumers using loot boxes” and identifies FIFA 22 as a case study for this type of behavior. It goes on to accuse developer EA of employing “a wide arsenal of tricks to push consumers into spending as much time and money as possible exploiting consumers hope to receive the reward despite a minuscule chance and likelihood to do so.”

According to the NCC FIFA 22 markets its packs by trying to trigger players’ fear of missing out, and claims that EA’s transparency regarding odds are “meaningless probability disclaimers” that do not tell players the actual probability of getting specific cards.

Continuing on, the NCC claim that even when players get their desired reward from a pack, they rarely stay valuable due to “the FIFA gameplay cycle” that introduces stronger cards as the year goes on.

“This creates a continuous gameplay loop, where players are continuously encouraged to open packs in the hope of obtaining upgraded cards to keep up with other players.”

Another major talking point is the reports claims that FIFA‘s pack probabilities are “dynamically generated”. They “can potentially be manipulated in real time based on any number of factors, all with the objective of incentivizing and maximizing spending”. Because there are no listed odds players on the verge of halting purchases as a result of bad luck could be artificially given a high-value card in an effort to bring them back.

In summary, the report says “it appears obvious that the design and mechanisms driving in-game purchases in these games are predatory, manipulative, and exceedingly aggressive, targeting consumer vulnerabilities at every opportunity.”

The report has been backed by 20 consumer groups across 18 companies, urging governments across the world to regulate loot boxes. The report calls for gaming companies to be banned from “using deceptive design to exploit consumers” and says in-game currencies should “always be denominated in real-world currency.”

It adds that games likely to be played by minors should not offer loot boxes for real money, nor should they include pay-to-win mechanics. The report also calls for more transparency on algorithms and better ways for consumer enforcement authorities to enforce these rules.

If these steps do not alleviate the identified issues, the NCC says governments should “consider a ban of paid loot boxes”.
