FIFA 23 Leak: Major Changes Coming for Ultimate Team

FIFA 23 LEAK

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.

Report: Big Changes Coming to FIFA 23 Ultimate Team

FIFA 23 Leaks

Rumors and leaks are pointing towards the popular game mode being set for big changes to the chemistry system in FUT 23.

Players Ultimate Team squads are typically limited by two things, the amount of coins they have and their squads chemistry. The latter can impact the ability of the team if certain conditions are not met.

To build team chemistry in Ultimate Team FIFA users currently have to play their players in their correct positions, while also having links to other players in the other positions. These links include that the players play in the same league, for the same club or represent the same nation. Chemistry is rated up to a score of 100 on Ultimate Team and should the team’s chemistry be below 100, it will negatively impact all of the players on the team, reducing their effectiveness.

Recent leaks on social media suggest that chemistry could be getting a major overhaul for FIFA 23. Reputable FIFA Ultimate Team trader @WeaverImBMW4er claims that the information he has received shows the ‘Chemistry’ system will be replaced by a new ‘Stars’ system in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.

The reported changes suggest that EA will be reducing the restrictions that are in place with the current chemistry system, allowing players to be more creative with their team without taking a hit to their squads overall effectiveness.

FIFA 23 is expected to be released later this year, in what will be the last EA Sports FIFA title.

Who will be FIFA 23 cover star?

FIFA 23 Cover Athelete

FIFA 23 will be released later this year, but we still don’t know which player will be the FIFA 23 cover star.

Kylian Mbappe has been the guy for the FIFA franchise for the past two years, and the expectation is that he holds that title again for FIFA 23.

EA Sports has confirmed partnerships with UEFA, Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A and La Liga following the decision to end their partnership with FIFA after almost 30 years. EA however did not announce an agreement of continued partnership with Ligue 1 after FIFA 23, which could see Mbappe be replaced as the cover star.

So if it’s not Mbappe on the cover, then who?

PSG, Liverpool, Man City, Milan, Inter and Real Madrid all have exclusive deals with EA so their players are most likely to feature on the cover. With that in mind EA could tab someone like Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior, Manchester City’s Phil Foden or Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold.

We’ll have all the details as soon as the FIFA 23 cover athlete is announced. Who do you want to see on the cover?

FIFA 23 Update: Will Look Familiar Despite the Upcoming Name Change

FIFA 23

EA FC is coming after FIFA 23 but for now its status quo.

EA Sports and FIFA decided to end their nearly thirty-year partnership, announcing the decision earlier this week. Instead, EA will rebrand the franchise as EA Sports FC.

FIFA 23 will be the final game that EA and FIFA will release as part of the partnership. Considering the recent news, and given that a FIFA World Cup is happening in 2022, players are wondering if FIFA 23 will have a World Cup mode.

FIFA 23 World Cup mode

In a blog post announcing some of their upcoming plans for the franchise, EA confirmed that FIFA 23 will have World Cup content. So despite the uncertainty surrounding the long-term changes to the franchise, players now know they’ll get their fill of World Cup content in FIFA 23.

The 2022 Qatar World Cup is also on the horizon, it will be played in the winter as opposed to the summer. This means that FIFA 23 could launch with World Cup content.

Ultimate Team World Cup content in FIFA 23

There is very little information out right now on FUT 23 content. In FIFA 2018, World Cup content was added to the game as a free downloadable add-on. We can expect something similar in FIFA 23 and probably more.

In FIFA 2018, Ultimate Team underwent a World Cup makeover, and fans are clearly excited at the prospect of a World Cup Ultimate Team mode in FIFA 23. We are almost certain to see special World Cup packs at multiple points throughout the year.

EA Sports FC Coming in 2023

EA Sports FC

FIFA 23 will release this year, but it will be EA Sports FC after that.

EA has announced that the FIFA series will change its name after FIFA 23, ending a partnership that has been in place since 1993.

EA Sports announced the change in a blog post, stating that there will be more information coming about the first EA Sports FC in July 2023. “This new independent platform will bring fresh opportunity – to innovate, create and evolve,” reads a statement from EA Sports representative, Cam Weber.

Despite dropping the name license, EA Sports FC will keep FIFA’s league, club and player licenses, including 19,000+ players, 700+ teams, 100+ stadiums and 30 leagues. FIFA itself has not released a statement at time of writing.

EA Sports vice president David Jackson released an important statement regarding the change: “In terms of things that they’ll miss, players will notice only two things: The name and a World Cup piece of content every four years. Outside of that, very little will change about the things they know, and love about the current FIFA products.”

EA had previously said it was exploring the idea of renaming the series, and trademarked the EA Sports FC name, but this is the first time it’s been officially confirmed.

Previous reports suggested that FIFA wanted to charge EA $1 billion every four years to use the name. A name mired in controversy for many years, including major corruption scandals.
