FIFA 23 has made its debut on PC and consoles. According to EA’s assurances, players get the most innovative product of the series.
FIFA 23 Premiere
There are few, especially in recent times, such as punctual publishers and brands. When the industry is facing numerous delays, FIFA 23, like its predecessors, is being released as previously planned and scheduled. PC owners (it’s worth checking the hardware requirements) and PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch consoles can reach for the game.
“With FIFA 23, we are bringing fans around the world the most immersive, authentic football experience ever in an EA SPORTS FIFA title. With the introduction of women’s clubs, our latest technological innovations led by HyperMotion2 and unparalleled authenticity in collaboration with more than 300 partners from the world of football, this latest title encapsulates the power of soccer, bringing together players, leagues, teams and talent from around the world through our shared passion for the sport.” – Nick Wlodyka, SVP, GM EA SPORTS FC
The PC version does not get this time
Last year, there were a lot of controversies related to the fact that the HyperMotion technology, and thus the highest quality, was reserved for next-generation consoles. In the case of FIFA 23, PC owners are not discriminated against, they also get the best.
HyperMotion 2 is a development of the already known technology. EA declares that the progress has allowed the introduction of over 6,000 faithful football animations increasing the realism of the entire game and its surroundings. Preparing all of this, data from two full matches of professional teams (male and female) and five training sessions were recorded.
FIFA 23. What’s new?
HyperMotion 2 is not the only novelty that EA boasts. A large number of them have been discussed in recent weeks. Cross-play has been introduced (for players on the same generation of platforms), new acceleration, dribbling and ball-hitting mechanisms that should be felt the first time you touch a new game, as well as refreshed set pieces, more realistic goalkeepers’ behaviour and new reactions defenders (including strong tackles and previously unavailable methods of blocking the ball).
Efforts were also made to get a larger portion of women’s football, apart from the national teams, you can also expect female club teams. In total, FIFA 23 brings over 19,000 players from over 700 teams who will compete in over 100 stadiums, in over 30 leagues.
As always, there is no shortage of licenses for the most important competitions, including LaLiga Santander, Premier League and Bundesliga, as well as UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League. It will also be possible to play the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023.
There are also minor and major changes to the most important modes. In this context, a lot has been said about the Career, which we wrote about earlier. A few days ago, an interesting fact was announced that thanks to cooperation with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will appear on the TV series Ted Lasso and AFC Richmond.
Why is this the last FIFA?
Finally, let us remind you that EA did not agree with FIFA to extend the license for this brand. This does not mean, however, that he intends to give up a profitable business. Some time ago it was announced that from next year it will be releasing games under the EA SPORTS FC banner.
