The FIFA 22 Shapeshifters promo has already delivered some incredible cards with the likes of Ronaldo and Messi involved in the promo. In addition, an exciting Team 3 will hit Ultimate Team on July 1.

Volland SBC stats FIFA 22

Volland has transformed from a lethal striker into a brick wall of a defender during the Shapeshifters promo. His Defending stats including Standing Tackle and Interceptions are all within the 90s.

Pace is not an issue for Volland as he maintains his speed as an attacker now playing in a defensive role. Volland will no doubt feel like an incredibly smooth CB on the ball thanks to his impressive Dribbling stats that include 85 Ball Control, 95 Composure, and 89 Balance.

FIFA 23 Premier League ratings: Every team’s best players predictions

The Premier League is set to host some of the best players in FIFA 23, so we’ve predicted who will have the highest rating for each club.

FIFA 23 Premier League ratings

The Premier League will be home to some of FIFA 23’s brightest stars, with players from the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool set to dominate Ultimate Team. Here are our predictions for the top Premier League ratings in FIFA 23, as well as every team’s best players.

Each and every year, EA updates its roster of players with new ratings based on how they performed in the previous season, and FIFA 23 is no exception. The 2021/22 campaign saw some exceptional performances, which will no doubt be reflected in the FIFA 23 ratings.

One of the biggest leagues to feature in FIFA 23 is the Premier League. Whether you’re building your dream Ultimate Team or embarking on a Career Mode, the English top-flight is likely to play a part.

But who will be the best players in the Premier League? We’ve put together our predictions for the top 10 highest-rated Premier League players in FIFA 23, and highlighted the best players from each club.

Harry KaneSpurs90
Alison BeckerLiverpool+190
EdersonManchester City+190
Erling HaalandManchester City+290
Virgil Van DijkLiverpool89
Trent Alexander-ArnoldLiverpool+288

After they two fought tooth and nail for all three domestic trophies last season, we’re expecting Manchester City and Liverpool to dominate the ratings in FIFA 23.

After winning Premier League Player of the Season, Kevin De Bruyne will likely keep his lofty 91 rating, sharing the top spot with Cristiano Ronaldo, who also enjoyed a great individual season in a struggling United team.

We’ve listed Erling Haaland as one of the highest climbers, who should receive a large bump after his high-profile move to City. Trent Alexander-Arnold is also expected to be rewarded after his best season to date, managing 12 assists from right back.

Heung Min-Son also registered his most prolific year in the Premier League so far, finishing as the joint-top goalscorer. This should be enough to see him move up a rating and join the coveted 90 club.

FIFA 23 Premier League rating predictions: Every team’s best players

While most clubs won’t have a shot of landing a player in the top 10, it’s still interesting to see how EA upgrades and downgrades stars from across the league. Every team had both standouts and flops that should be reflected when FIFA 23 rolls around.

Apex Legends Mobile leak claims Solos mode arrives before PC & console

Apex Legends players have been calling for a Solos mode for many seasons, but according to leaks mobile players could be getting it first.

Published

Apex Legends Mobile leaks are suggesting that the handheld version of the battle royale will be getting a Solos mode before PC and Console.

Apex Legends offers players a variety of ways to play the battle royale. Those who like to enjoy casual games can hop into public games, while those who like a challenge can indulge in the Ranked Leagues.

There’s also the Arenas mode and various LTMs ever so often with the Awakening Collection Event for Season 13 bringing the return of Control.

Having said that, Apex Legends players have been wanting a Solos mode ever since the Iron Crown Event back in Season 2, however, it seems mobile will be getting it first.

Back in Apex Legends Season 2, players were given the Iron Crown Event, which saw a Solo LTM introduced into the game. Ever since it was removed, it has yet to return.

This has left Apex players wanting a Solos mode for over ten seasons, and according to leaks, Apex Legends Mobile Season 2 could be getting the highly requested mode first.

Apex Legends dataminer ThatOneGamingBot discovered some interesting icons in the Apex Legends Mobile files, suggesting that Solos will be introduced.

This of course caused disappointing reactions from the community, who have been hoping that the mode would be introduced on consoles and PC as well. Thordan Smash sarcastically commented “Nice that Apex Legends is finally getting Solo Mode…for mobile,” along with a sad face emoji.

Having said that, the dataminer did reply to Thordan’s reaction, stating that the Solos mode from Apex Mobile is “probably an LTM.” While this could be true, Thordan Smash replied again saying that he’d “gladly take solos as an LTM again” on consoles and PC.


We’ll have to wait and see how this leaked Solos mode will be introduced on Apex Legends Mobile. It does seem that the handheld version of the battle royale is getting more and more exclusive content, especially as the second mobile-exclusive Legend was also leaked for Season 2.
