FIFA ’23 from EA Sports has finally launched on various platforms including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and more. The new instalment of the classic football simulation series has a few new features that EA hopes will entice fans into picking up this latest title.
The arrival of cross-play to more game modes for FIFA 23 is certainly good news, although Pro Clubs is omitted and cross-play is limited to players on the same platform generation, i.e. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players are compatible with one another, but not with players on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Stadia, or PC. The latest HyperMotion2 gameplay technology, available on current-gen platforms, is said to deliver more realistic in-game animations from machine learning of real-life football matches. The new instalment also marks the very first time that the FIFA series introduces women’s club teams in the game, while the 2022 FIFA World Cup and the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup will be added as post-launch content updates at no additional cost.
For those who are looking to purchase a PlayStation 5 console, Sony has launched the “PlayStation 5 – EA Sports FIFA 23 Bundle” which is definitely worth considering. Priced at HK$4,880, the bundle includes a PlayStation 5 console, a DualShock 4 wireless controller, pre-installed Astro’s Playroom game, FIFA 23 full game voucher, and FIFA 23 Ultimate Team voucher. The full game voucher includes additional content such as an untradeable Team of the Week 1 Player item, Kylian Mbappé loan item in Career Mode, FUT Ambassador loan player pick item, and Homegrown Talent player in Career Mode, while the Ultimate Team voucher includes a tradeable Rare Gold Players pack and three untraceable Loan Icon items for 5 FUT matches.
