In Ultimate Team, there is now a limit on how long you can have the PlayStation Dynamic Menu or Xbox Home Menu open while playing FUT Champions FIFA 23 coins; a timer will appear informing you that you’ll forfeit the game if you don’t resume before it expires. Other changes include some audio tweaks and bug fixes–take a look at the full patch notes at the bottom of this article.
FIFA 23 was received well upon its release, but EA says it may not bring out a new football title every year in future. Instead, it may turn to a subscription-based model. In our FIFA 23 review, we awarded the game a 7/10.
“It’s off the pitch that EA excels,” we said. “From the variety of game modes on offer and how everything’s presented, to the constant updates in FUT’s Team of the Week, Daily Objectives, and discussion of real-world happenings in commentary, FIFA 23 captures the world of football and confidently translates it into a video game. On the pitch, however, EA’s FIFA series is still lagging far behind PES 2022’s more fluid, satisfying football. This year’s improvements are welcome, but more needs to be done in the coming years if FIFA is to be a world-beater once again.”
This year’s edition was also released on Switch, but in our FIFA 23 Nintendo Switch review we said the port is “inferior” in nearly every way when compared to the PS4 and Xbox One versions. For more on this season’s FIFA games, check out our comparison of FIFA 23 vs PES 2022.
