EA has unveiled to fans the new features fans can expect from their final soccer sim bearing the FIFA moniker, FIFA 23.

The headline features include the addition of women’s club teams for the first time in the series. That includes the addition of the Barclays Women’s Super League and Division 1 Arkema at launch. The game will also include both the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023 as free post-launch updates.

On the pitch itself, cross-play features allow soccer fans to play friends on other systems. Elsewhere, HyperMotion 2 sees last year’s debuting tech get fancy upgrades to allow for even more features. These include more responsive movement and a new intelligent dribbling system and a more fluid transition to shooting. There’s all-new acceleration mechanics, enhanced player awareness and more. The addition of women’s club teams also means there’s all new animations from real-life female players, to ensure authenticity.

Naturally, there’s a bunch of new and returning modes. These include Career Mode, Pro Clubs, VOLTA Football, Ultimate Team and more. Newer players will also be able to take advantage of the new Training Center coaching system to get them up to speed or for veterans to hone their skills. Lovely stuff.

You can check out the game’s debut trailer for yourself down below. FIFA 23 will launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Google Stadia and PC on September 30. A ‘Legacy Edition’ of the game will also be available for the Nintendo Switch without, sadly, any new gameplay features.
