Xbox players accidentally play FIFA 23 early
FIFA 23 will be released on all platforms on September 30, 2022. However, this did not stop someXboxPlayers try the game in advance. According to a report from Video Games Chronicle, Xbox players who participated in the recent FIFA 23 test were able to enter the game, update the game, and even pre-install the Ultimate Edition. As a result, a lot of unpublished information, including FIFA 23 player ratings and Liverpool and Burnley kits, were leaked on Twitter.
EA quickly discovered this and shut down its online servers in response. However, players can still play FIFA 23’s offline modes, such as Kickoff and Career. EA is also apparently banning players who are caught using identifiable information such as account names to stream or post gameplay footage. This seems unfair because players don’t actually go to the game early, but they get punished for something that’s not their fault. EA’s approach is very similar to what Activision did when its upcoming game was leaked early.
Players who previewed FIFA 23 in advance have leaked Liverpool and Arsenal player ratings, as well as Burnley’s away and third kits. Some players have also leaked the FIFA 23 soundtrack and Liverpool’s third kit, but those tweets appear to have been taken down by EA. It’s unclear how soon players who manage to pre-install will get FIFA 23. That said, FIFA 23 will launch on September 30 on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One andNintendoSwitch. The game will feature an improved weather system, enhanced graphics and controls, and a new FUT Moments game mode. FIFA 23 will feature women’s football for the first time.
