Footy fans who get in early and purchase the digital-exclusive Ultimate Edition will be treated to three days of early access, so they can start their FIFA 23 career on September 27.

As mentioned in our FIFA 23 early access guide, EA Play Pro members on PC will also be able to enjoy early access from September 27 too, even if they’ve only purchased the Standard Edition of the game.

If you want the ability to play FIFA 23 across both generations of your chosen console, you’ll need to purchase the Ultimate Edition. 

FIFA 23 demo

Unfortunately, this year marks the third in a row that there will be no demo version of FIFA 23. 

However, EA Play members will be able to enjoy a 10-hour trial, which is the next best thing.

FIFA 23 gameplay, crossplay

The biggest innovation that FIFA 23 is marketing right now are the Men’s and Women’s World Cups. 

Female teams from across Britain and France are represented, giving players more options on who to play with than ever before.

Another huge addition is the introduction of crossplay, which allows players on different platforms to play with one another, though there are some key limitations.

Only 1v1 modes will have access to crossplay, and players with older consoles will be relegated to playing by themselves. 

PS4 and Xbox One consoles can play with one another, but won’t be able to connect to the modern version available across PS5, Xbox Series X, PC, and Google Stadia.

The Nintendo Switch’s FIFA 23 Legacy Edition, meanwhile, is based on a much older version of FIFA, and presents no gameplay or visual enhancements, just an updated roster.
