FIFA World Cup Update for FIFA 23
In FIFA 23, fans can play as any of the 32 qualified nations in an authentic recreation of the entire FIFA World Cup 2022 from the opening match to the final game. Players also have the option to customize their tournament experience by changing groups and substituting in select teams that didn’t make it to the finals. In Online Tournament Mode, fans will fight through the Knockout Stages as any qualified nation, aiming for glory against other players worldwide.
Running November 21 through December 18, FIFA World Cup: Live, a curated EA SPORTS World Cup experience, will be available to players only on FIFA 23. Unlike before in an EA SPORTS FIFA title, this new live experience will be updated during the Group and Knockout Stages of the tournament, allowing players to follow along with authentic fixtures and squads for each game. Additionally, fans can take matters into their own hands to rewrite history by changing the outcome of any past game, giving them the spotlight.
With Your FIFA World Cup, players can choose a nation, select a live starting point from past or current matchdays, and play an authentic single-player tournament inheriting all the real-world progress made to date – including the line-ups, match stats, and standings from the tournament so far – letting them take control of their favorite team’s destiny.
Unique holiday offerings level up the FIFA Ultimate Team experience, with brand new FUT campaigns released November 11 through December 23, bringing players closer to the action than ever before. As players board the plane to the tournament, EA will kick off the excitement with live items that receive progression upgrades based on each nation’s progress throughout the journey. Authentic team kits, stadium dressings, visuals, match balls, dedicated commentary, and more will carry fans through to the final crowning of the world’s champion.
Staggered throughout the “World Cup Path to Glory” event, running from November 11-23, FUT fans can look forward to 30 unique World Cup Heroes presented in a custom World Cup-themed Hero shell.
As the knockout stages begin, EA will celebrate the most impactful moments in the World Cup so far, celebrating critical moments from the qualification that captivated the world. Once the quarter-finals arrive, FIFA fans will be greeted by a new class of World Cup FUT Phenoms, uplifting the performances of some of football’s brightest stars.
Finally, as the World Cup closes, FIFA 23 will celebrate the best performing players from throughout the journey, crowning them members of the Team of the Tournament and awarding them with permanently boosted items.
All of this will be available for free for FIFA 23 fans on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One beginning November 9, with FUT updates kicking off November 11. The excitement will continue next summer as the women take the stage for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023, with more details on this game update being shared in the future.
The EA SPORTS FIFA Mobile World Cup 2022 Tournament Mode, coming on November 8th, 2022, will allow fans to earn rewards based on their tournament progress and chosen difficulty by completing the Tournament. Rewards will be useable in the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2022™ Live Event.
Once the live event begins on November 17th and onwards, players can earn unique World Cup Players for winning the Tournament that they can add to their FIFA Mobile Ultimate Team.
