FIFA 23 will arrive with Crossplay Support
For the first time in franchise history, this year’s FIFA entry will feature cross-play. The series will allow players from PlayStation, Xbox, and PC to play together for the first time in all game modes. However, the report does not mention anything about Nintendo Switch
The report also states the game will contain both the men’s and women’s World Cups for a single experience bringing both together.
It also brings improvements to the series’ Hypermotion Technology, first introduced with FIFA 22. The technology “has been enhanced tenfold,” as it can now capture animations during real matches using stadium cameras instead of putting athletes in Xsens suits.
HyperMotion technology is a machine learning algorithm that writes new animations in real-time, based on 8.7 million frames of match capture data. For example, in FIFA 22, matches were played by 22 professional players in a 11v11 match, all while wearing Xsens motion capture suits. Hypermotion tech was only available with the PS5, Stadia, and Xbox Series X/S versions of the game.
Earlier there are rumors that suggest that the brand will be going free-to-play in 2022. But, the Company keeps those plans on hold right now. Back in October 2021, EA had announced a name change for its football franchise, following a financial dispute. According to the company, the FIFA branding and licensing are getting far too expensive to afford. They need to pay $2.5 billion over the next 10 years by FIFA (association). The amount is more than double what the publisher pays in the previous years.
There are speculations that FIFA 23 will launch sometime in September across all major platforms – going by their standard release strategy.
