Play news FIFA 23: FUT mode, crossplay, career … Players’ high expectations!
EA’s latest FIFA does not yet have a release date, but we suspect it will land as usual in late September or early October. As the deadline is fast approaching for football fans, the time has come to put into words their expectations and other hopes. Career mode, microtransactions at FUT, cross-country games … We asked for your opinion and here’s what came out of it.
- Career Mode vs. FUT Mode
- Manuscript, free kick … Reworked matches
- Next generation games, crossplay … Technical advances
There are video game licenses that have become essential over time, aimed at both initiated and occasional gamers. Call of Duty is, of course, one of them, as is FIFA. EA’s license is a real institution for many. In France, the annual FIFA is also regularly number one in sales, not only in the video game market, but in the entire cultural product industry. (just that). It goes without saying that FIFA is especially valued by the players … at least as much as it is highlighted. Strengthened by its dominant position, the series has a bit of a hard time renewing itself, and certain choices made by EA have had the gift of annoying fans in the first hour. Therefore, many of them are hoping for a career change to finish with style and make an impression. In fact, FIFA 23 will be EA’s last FIFA. Enough to give rise to wild desires or legitimate hopes in the players’ heads. But what are they?
Career Mode vs. FUT Mode
You probably will not have missed it, EA has for some years focused on its FUT mode (FIFA Ultimate Team). Arriving with FIFA 09, the condition quickly became popular and in particular allowed EA’s license to stand out from its main competitor, PES. So much so that the FUT mode on the recent opuses has evolved a lot to become the main interest of the game, whether it is for the players, but also for EA, which earns a lot of revenue thanks to it. This economic model based on microtransactions galore has also been pointed out frequently, and not surprisingly, many hope to see it take a smaller share. and FIFA 23.
Less current microtransactions because the target audience should not spend 100 euros or more for a team

In addition to this purely economic aspect, some would like to see other changes on the side of the FUT state. ElFænomen76 I hope so an overhaul of FUT Champions qualifiers with the opportunity to participate in this tournament in coop. JPhiLacroixhim, pointing the finger the rebalancing system making it quickly pointless to build the best team.
It is for FUT mode. But if, as we said, the latter has now become the FIFA mode, but this has especially been done at the expense of a historical mode that is present in the vast majority of sports simulation games: career mode. If present, it is much less highlighted than FUT mode. Recently, however, there has been a desire to bring new features and more complete mechanics to the quarry. EA therefore has a good chance of continuing on this path, which will delight players who are disappointed with this condition and who expect much more. To improve it, BatShadow99 even advances a certain number of points: more options and events, as well as better realism on the transfer side. According to LefinAdrienwould EA win at get inspiration from the NBA 2K license which offers a more complete career mode, and which gives an honor to adapt.
Confusion, the players also mentioned improvements to the Social Mode Clubs Pro. As a reminder, the latter allows you to create your own team with your friends. It is especially through the latter that the now famous FC Silmi was created. All in all, it’s a great way to have fun with friends, although this condition still needs a number of improvements, as highlighted in particular. brkwskill. This player, for example, would like the points system to be more understandable. Others ask return to a state of history like The Journey, which led us to follow the career of a FIFA 17 player.
Manuscript, free kick … Reworked matches
Besides the shape, it is also the fabric that some hope to see change. The FIFA license is not error free and some are just waiting to be fixed. This is especially the case with free kicks and penalties, which have caused many players to lose patience, as Tho_Loco who says he is annoyed “at the highest point” of these. He also talked about better AI for goalkeepers, a point repeated by other players. Another detail that annoys the players: the new license meta. For a handful of years, it has been based on the speed of the players. Having fast football players on the pitch is thus a great advantage during matches and has a negative effect on the structure of the game.
Other players point to the lack of control for the players. Between the physics of the ball, which sometimes makes the players powerless, and the scripts that allow the opposing team to come back, the player sometimes finds himself as a spectator in front of his own match. Many of them are hoping for changes at this level, such as LukeNukem64 who put forward this point through a long argument:
I have been playing FIFA for 19 years in a row and most of all I would like a complete removal of the DDA / Script mechanics that were present since the PSP version of Euro 2008 (which was an official feature of the game) and later added and expanded to through games.

Next generation games, crossplay … Technical advances
One last main theme stems from the different expectations you have given us: the technical skills of the game. Many of you are really hoping for a game that is even more beautiful and fluid than its predecessors. This is a pretty standard request for a new game, but some even go so far as to ask for a real next-gen game like japaneezu. For others, More generally, EA should deliver correct versions on all platforms, and especially the Nintendo Switch. Just take a look at your reviews of this version of FIFA 22 to understand the extent of the disappointment at release. In addition to the technical limitations, the game offered less content on the Nintendo console. The players hope that will not be the case this time.
And since we’re talking about platforms, there’s another request that came up a lot: cross games. From what we hear, FIFA 23 should be the first FIFA to offer crossplay at launch. To test this feature, FIFA 22 has integrated it since May last year. Nothing has been officially announced, but it’s crossplay, reserved for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series players, and available in all modes. Players therefore naturally expect it, while some even hope that it will be extended to other platforms. See you in a few months to see if their expectations are met.
