[Mis à jour le 20 juillet 2022 à 18h18] FIFA shows us a whole new face for its 2023 edition. After the broadcast of the official trailer of the game live this Wednesday, we could see a whole bunch of new features that are at the heart of this next release of the franchise. With the arrival of Hypermotion 2, the enhanced version of the motion capture technology featured in FIFA 22, FIFA 23 offers a more immersive experience than ever. But that’s not all, the game also intends to honor women’s football this year, by offering players the opportunity to embody different teams from the biggest European and American sports leagues. EA does not intend to do things by halves for the one that will be the last FIFA game in the history of the franchise, which will also be open to crossplay between the different console generations. We will explain everything to you

We now know the extent of the new features brought by FIFA 23. You should know that the game is labeled “Biggest FIFA ever”, understand the most ambitious title of the franchise to date. Information that confirms to us that EA does not intend to half realize the one that will be the last of a great line (see below in this article). The game intends to incorporate new technologies, including the arrival of Hypermotion 2, the evolution of the motion-capture and physics system featured in the PS5 and Xbox Series versions of FIFA 22. FIFA 23’s attention to detail is meticulous, down to the smallest blade of grass that bends during a sliding tackle, and down to the slightest deformation of the ball after a hard kick.

Also note that for the first time, FIFA 23 will offer next-gen versions on three different media, the new kid on the block being the PC, and that keyboard-mouse players will finally be able to play with their friends on PS5 and Xbox Series via crossplay. In addition to this technical information, we already know that the game will give pride of place to women’s football, by reiterating its integration of women’s national teams, but also by offering players the opportunity to discover the teams of the French, English and German women’s championships. and American.

In addition, the game intends to offer us an edition with two very distinct World Cups. It will feature the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, as well as the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand. equality in this new edition of the franchise. These two competitions will not be present when the game launches next September, but will be the subject of subsequent and completely free updates a few months after its release.

FIFA 22 had introduced us to the idea of ​​two different versions of the same game. This release being linked to two generations of consoles with different technical capabilities, EA had then decided to offer two games. The first was the next-gen version (PS5 and Xbox Series) including all the technical innovations of this new generation of football games, and the second was the old-gen version (PS4, Xbox One and PC) which remained a simple upgrade. FIFA 21. A decision that was far from unanimous, players first noting that PCs were confined to the “old” generation, and deploring the lack of crossplay between Xbox One, PC and PS4.

For FIFA 23 things are different. If the two versions of the game still exist, separating the next-gen from the old-gen, the rules have changed. PC, PS5 and Xbox Series players will be able to enjoy the same version of the game, and even crossplay which has been fully integrated into the game. For PS4 and Xbox One players don’t panic, crossplay is also offered to them. These cross-platform play features are of course FUT Division Rivals (except Co-Op), FUT Champions, FUT Ultimate Online Draft, FUT Online Friendlies (except Co-Op), FUT Play a Friend, Online Friendlies. and finally Online Seasons.

FIFA 23 muse Samantha May Kerr is an Australian player playing for Chelsea in the Women’s Super League. She was born in 1993 in East Fremantle and is the daughter of Roger Kerr, an Australian football player playing in the 80s. Noted for her scoring skills during her stints with Perth FC and Western New York, she signed for two and a half years at Chelsea in 2019. As well as being the first woman to wear a FIFA jacket, she is also the highest paid player in the world, and the top scorer in the Women’s Super League championship since 2020. Chelsea have d has won the competition every year since his arrival. Sam Kerr undoubtedly has a track record that could make the greatest players in the men’s championships dream, including a certain Kylian Mbappé, co-star of the cover of FIFA 23.

A new year is equivalent to a new edition of FIFA, the rule has been clear and recorded for more than 24 years now. A small event for the world of video games which revels in the release of the most popular sports simulation license. And although the presentation of FIFA 23 is scheduled for this Wednesday, July 20, there is already some information about its possible release date. Note the term “possible”, this news being from accounts of more or less respected insiders. It was the Fut Sheriff Twitter account that revealed its vision for future release dates and other early access versions of FIFA 23. The game would therefore be scheduled for the end of September, with a release date for the Standard version set for September 30.

If for the first time the cover of a FIFA game honors women’s football, the game intends to push its integration of women further. Thus, we recently learned that several national championships will be represented in FIFA 23, including the French D1F. The twelve teams that make up this “Women’s League 1” will all be playable, while the FAWSL (England), NWSL (United States) and Frauen-Bundesliga (Germany) championships will also be fully accessible. A big step forward for FIFA, which had hitherto been content to include only national selections in its previous sections. Also note that the game will include, as we said above, the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023, as a free update after its release.

On the sidelines of the arrival of FIFA 23, we couldn’t help but notice that this 25th iteration of the franchise would be the last to bear the same name. Indeed, you may already know it, but the divorce has been pronounced between EA Sports and FIFA. The reason ? On the one hand, FIFA wants to increase the fees paid by EA for the ownership of the license, on the other hand, it also intends to make it accept that FIFA appears in other video game franchises (Roblox, Fortnite… ). A slightly too incredible idea for EA, which has decided to go it alone from the year 2023. FIFA 23 will therefore be the last football game bearing the famous name of the International Football Federation.

As for the future of football simulation games, don’t panic, EA intends to develop its own franchise, which will bear the name of EA Sports FC. Only, EA Sports FC will have to give up content related to the World Cup, directly licensed by FIFA. As for the clubs, however, the game should have no problem according to EA. On the side of FIFA, we are all grumpy, but we intend to find another standard bearer for the official football simulation. Various candidates could enter the dance, among the biggest studios in the video game world, but for the moment, no information has emerged on this subject.
