EA Sports are set to pull out all the stops for the final instalment in their highly popular FIFA series before it’s replaced by a new title.
FIFA 23 is set to break new boundaries before football’s governing body and the publisher of the world’s leading video game part ways.
Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe and Chelsea icon Sam Kerr will appear on the global cover of the game’s Ultimate Edition.
The latter’s appearance is significant as Australian Kerr becomes the the first woman to be featured on the cover of a FIFA title.
And the milestone couldn’t be any more timely with FIFA 23 set to include women’s club sides for the first time following national teams introductions in 2016.
But what else do we know about the game and when will it be released? talkSPORT.com has all the details…
FIFA 23: Release date
EA Sports has confirmed that FIFA 23 is set to be released for general sale on Friday, September 30.
However, early access for the Ultimate Edition will begin three days before on Tuesday, September 27.
A release date for Web App and early access for EA Play subscribers is yet to be confirmed but it came four days before the Ultimate Edition last year so a similar timeline is likely.
Pre-ordering the Ultimate Edition will also come with the following:
- One Untradeable FIFA World Cup FUT Heroes player (November 11, 2022) – only if you pre-order it before August 21, 2022
- Three days early access (Play from September 27, 2022)
- One Untradeable Ones to Watch player (from September 30, 2022)
- One TOTW 1 player
- 4,600 FIFA Points
- FUT Ambassador Loan Player Pick (Heung-Min Son, Vinicius Jr, Alphonso Davies)
- Kylian Mbappe Loan (5 games)
- Career Mode Homegrown Talent

FIFA 23: Cross-platform
The latest entry in the best-selling franchise will finally include cross-platform on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
In FIFA 23, players on the same platform generation will be able to play against each other in ‘1v1 modes’, which includes Online Friendlies and FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT Rivals, FUT Champions and FUT Draft).
This means that PS4 and Xbox One can face off against each together, as will PS5 and Xbox Series X/S players.
However, once again, EA has confirmed Pro Clubs will be excluded from cross-platform.
FIFA 23: New features
In addition to cross-platform, FIFA 23 will also feature licensed play modes for the Men’s World Cup 2022 in Qatar as well as the Women’s edition the following year in Australia and New Zealand.
Furthermore, women’s club teams will be included for the first time.
From launch, players have access to teams from the British Women Super League and French D1 alongside the national team roster.
