Another year, another FIFA, though FIFA 23 will mark the last FIFA as we know it. EA’s grip on the license will finally loosen, and they’ll go on to release a newly branded football series next year, though it’s not clear what form that will take just yet. Before EA Sports FC in 2023 though, we have FIFA 23 to look forward to, including all of the different editions and bonuses you can get your hands on. If you’re thinking of buying FIFA 23 this year, here’s everything you need to know.

Players will also get early access with this edition, so they can start building their squads even earlier.

 

When Does FIFA 23 Release?

FIFA 23 releases on September 30th, 2022 for everyone who purchases the Standard Edition.

However, those who want to overpay can get the Ultimate Edition and start playing on September 27th, 2022, a whole three days early.

EA Play Pro subscribers can also start playing FIFA 23 from September 27th. EA Play Pro is a PC-exclusive version of EA Play that gives subscribers access to certain EA games early along with other perks.
