Ultimate Team players received a wonderful holiday gift from EA as a few Icon SBCs hit FIFA 22. One of the three new Icon SBCs puts Italian legend Gianfranco Zola up for grabs. The SBC is definitely expensive but the benefits of utilizing an Icon are unrivaled.

Not only will Zola fit into just about any squad as most Icons do, but the forward’s stats are incredible. The diminutive Italian is a force to be reckoned with either leading the line or playing in a midfield role.

FUT players can expect to submit a whopping 8 squads in order to claim this Prime Icon Gianfranco Zola.

Zola’s impeccable stats make up for the fact that he doesn’t boast 5* skills or weak foot. Thanks to his nimble size and ideal body type, Zola’s pace feels quicker than 86. Zola’s biggest selling point is that he can operate as a CF, ST, CAM or, CM.

This versatility makes Zola extremely appealing and his passing ability makes it so the Italian feels comfortable in the midfield. Keep in mind, Icons receive yellow links from all surrounding players which makes Zola a great fit for any team.

The Griddy dance is named after its creator Allen ‘Griddy’ Davis and became a viral sensation after popular celebrities like LSU’s Ja’Marr Chase and Viking’s number 18 Justin Jefferson brought it to the NFL.

Since then, numerous players have performed the dance, and its intense popularity has led to the Griddy also being added to video games like Fortnite and Madden. Now, it’s available for you to try out in FIFA 23.

FIFA 23: Release date, crossplay, new features, more

FIFA 23 is right around the corner, and EA have prepared a ton of new content for players to enjoy so here’s everything you need to know.

FIFA 23 release date is fast approaching, and football fans are eager to discover what EA has in store for them this year. Here’s everything you need to know about FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 will be EA Sports’ final football game with the FIFA branding as they get set to introduce EA Sports FC to the world next year.

Therefore, expectations for FIFA 23 are high and after EA showcased the new features and additions that await players across Career Mode, Ultimate Team, and Pro Clubs, there’s clearly a look to look forward to.

We’ll break down every new feature coming to FIFA 23 as well as the official release date, to best prepare you for an expansive final chapter.

Will FIFA 23 have crossplay?

FIFA 23 will have a crossplay feature for certain modes at launch. Crossplay in FIFA 23 will be limited to 1vs1 modes when the game releases. This will mainly impact Ultimate Team gameplay as players on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC will face each other. Meanwhile, PS4 and Xbox One users will also match up against each other

This also means that a massive amount of players will be sharing one FUT market in FIFA. To find out more about changes to the market, you can read our article explaining how the Ultimate Team market will function in FIFA 23.

Unfortunately, EA confirmed that there would be no crossplay feature for the Pro Clubs mode. This infuriated players, and after a ton of backlash from the FIFA community, EA hinted that the feature could make its way to Pro Clubs post-launch.

FIFA 23 Ultimate Team new features

FIFA 23 Ultimate Team fans are in for some major changes. For starters, position modifiers as we know them will be removed from the game.

Instead, players will have secondary positions that mirror their real-life position changes. For example, Kyler Walker would be able to operate on full chemistry at RB or CB.

FIFA 23 Ultimate Team squad chemistry

Another major change set to hit the Ultimate Team mode is FIFA 23’s brand-new chemistry system. Chemistry lines across your squad are a thing of the past in FIFA 23. You’ll know have more freedom to build your squad with a less restrictive chemistry system.

This system will factor in nations, leagues, and clubs across the entire pitch in order to give players a chemistry rating between 0-3. Proximity is no longer a factor as Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold produce chemistry from RB to LB.

Check out our guide on Ultimate Team’s new game mode called FUT Moments for a look at what to expect in FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 World Cup modes

The World Cup mode added to FIFA 18 was a massive hit among players, and the community has been urging EA to revisit the feature for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

While we currently don’t know how many game modes will feature World Cup content, EA did confirm that there will be some involvement via the Ultimate Team mode.

It’s understood that both the men’s and women’s versions of the World Cup will be celebrated in FIFA 23, but we’ll have to wait and see what they have in store for players.

Given that the men’s tournament takes place in the winter of 2022 this time around, and the women’s edition is in the summer of 2023, EA would have plenty of time to give both footballing festivals the proper treatment.

FIFA 23 new & removed clubs

Due to licensing agreements, it’s not unusual to see clubs and leagues join and depart the FIFA franchise with every new release. Lately, certain Serie A licenses have been difficult to come by with notable clubs Juventus, Lazio, and Atalanta missing from the game.

EA confirmed that Juventus will be returning to FIFA this year in full capacity, with Claudio Marchisio leading the charge as a FUT Hero item available to Ultimate Team players.

While one partnership seems to be reignited, another one is set to end in FIFA 23 as reports claim that the J-League will be removed from the game. If reports are true, this would mark the end of a 6-year partnership between the Japanese League and EA Sports.

With a ton of different licenses to take note of, it could be difficult to keep track of which teams, leagues, and stadiums will be involved in FIFA 23, but we’ve made a guide to help you out.

FIFA 23 gameplay changes

In addition to changes to the Pro Clubs and Career Mode offerings in FIFA 23, EA were also excited to announce several gameplay changes. These changes are meant to freshen up the way the game feels on the pitch.

For starters, set pieces have undergone an overhaul in FIFA 23, with penalties receiving a simplified mechanic. Set pieces also include free kicks and corners, which you’ll have to learn how to master once more this year.

One of the most entertaining ways to flex your FIFA prowess is through skill moves, and in FIFA 23 there will be more to master than ever before. You can check out our guide to discover all of the gameplay changes being introduced in FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 Ultimate Team: Chemistry changes, position overhaul, FUT Moments, more

FIFA 23 is introducing a ton of new features and changes to the fan favorite Ultimate Team game mode, so here’s what to expect.

Published

on

FIFA 23 Ultimate Team Stadium

FIFA 23 is fast approaching and with the Ultimate Team mode set to attract football fans around the world once more, here’s a look at the new features that will make their way to FUT.

Ultimate Team will continue to be the main attraction of the FIFA franchise as players look forward to the release of FIFA 23. Expectations for FIFA 23 are high as the final game before the long-standing partnership between EA and FIFA comes to a close.

The Ultimate Team mode will once again deliver a ton of content for players to discover including Icons and FUT Heroes. However, EA confirmed that there’s plenty of innovation on the way that is set to shake up the Ultimate Team game mode.

Here’s what you need to know about the new Ultimate Team features in FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 Ultimate Team chemistry changes

FIFA 23 Ultimate Team new chemistry changes

Building the ideal Ultimate Team squad has always revolved around linking players through the mode’s chemistry system. For years, players who share the same Nationality, Club, and or League always produced the best chemistry results.

This added chemistry would give players a performance boost in-game. EA have completely altered how chemistry is calculated in FIFA 23, doing away with chemistry lines across your squad.

Players can now link across the entire pitch. This means that your LB and RB can build chemistry with each other, as well as your GK and ST. For example, Mbappe will create chemistry with Marquinhos within the same squad.

Players have three diamonds next to their items that represent their personal chemistry, with a panel on the left side of your screen that will help you adjust the team’s chemistry.

FIFA 23 Ultimate Team position overhaul

FIFA 23 positioning change Ultimate Team

If the changes to chemistry weren’t enough to get you excited, EA also delivered a complete overhaul to how positioning works in Ultimate Team.

In FIFA 22, players could change position by following a linear path. For example, RWs could swap to RMs to better suit your desired formation. However, players have long been asking for a change to positioning to make it feel more authentic.

Position changes in FIFA 23 will be based on real-life player positions. If a player has experience playing in multiple positions, a position modifier card will allow them to show their versatility. Players can have up to three alternate positions.

Two great examples of this new feature happen to be Manchester City defenders Joao Cancelo and Kyle Walker. Cancelo’s secondary position would be at RB while Walker’s would be at CB. Previously, switching a LB to RB and a RB to CB were two position changes that were impossible to execute in Ultimate Team.

FUT Moments FIFA 23

FIFA 23 FUT Moments

FUT Moments is a new Ultimate Team game mode that will give players an extra objective to work towards in FIFA 23. Players will be able to complete a series of short scenarios based on real-life players, teams, and matches of the past.

You’ll be asked to score a specific type of game-winning goal or complete a certain number of passes within a time limit. These single-player challenges are meant to be a separate offering from what Ultimate Team fans are used to.

There will also be rewards attached to completing FUT Moments challenges. Ultimate Team players will use stars earned from completing FUT Moments challenges as the currency to redeem rewards.

World Cup Ultimate Team content in FIFA 23

During their Ultimate Team reveal, EA were purposely coy when discussing World Cup features. EA confirmed that “we’re going to have the World Cup in FUT this year.” However, aside from that brief statement, they did not reveal any details.

In 2018, a special World Cup Ultimate Team add-on made its way to the game where players could build new squads from scratch using World Cup cards.

We’ll have to wait and see what EA have planned for the Qatar World Cup in 2022, but given that this tournament will take place in the winter, players won’t have to wait long after release to check out this new content.
