On October 1, 2022, the long-awaited release of FIFA 23, the latest game from Electronic Arts under this name, took place. The football simulator is now called EA Sports FC. The company announced the termination of relations with the International Football Federation but promised not to leave its fans without an annual update of the series.
The main thing to know about the new part is the novel system requirements. If you have consistently played FIFA 22, there is a high chance that the new feature will not launch for you. The game is very demanding on the stuffing of the computer, and uses it to the fullest. The simulator has acquired a new engine and Hypermotion 2 technology, which has dramatically modified it.
The fact is that FIFA 23 has become cross-platform. Now players can play with each other even if they are playing on different devices. Console users can compete with those who play on the computer, which is very interesting.
Moreover, in the game, you can immediately see from which device the opponent is playing. So far, there are problems with this, as the response in the game for different devices is very different, so some freezes remain. But in the future, this promises great opportunities, and at the same time, it will solve the question of where the players are more robust.
According to FIFA 23 news, it is a potentially great game that now looks about 50% complete. Shortly the developers will fix all the errors and shortcomings, and the completion of the series may be its crown. If the game continues to be as raw as it is now, then it will be sad to note that the decline of the FIFA series turned out to be a failure.
However, even on suitable hardware, the game’s optimization leaves much to be desired. If we talk about the version for the computer. The developers did not quite cope with the transition to a new engine. At the start, the game does not start well; it periodically freezes and lags.
Perhaps the developers are willing to fix this with updates, but the situation looks alarming. The anti-cheat system is supposed to make the game more honest and does not add optimism. But in reality, it simply does not allow individual users to run it. In general, the launch of the last part of FIFA turned out to be one of the weakest.
FIFA 23 Gameplay:
Speaking directly about the game, it is noticeable that it has become much slower. The pace is slow; you must be more thoughtful about what is happening on the field and pay attention to simple passing.
The same Hypermotion 2 technology made the players more unique and added several animations that were not previously in the game. Football players now take the ball differently; they hit the goal differently and give passes.
But it does not work perfectly either: it is clear that the blows are too strong and differ in balance from the passes, which should be fixed in the next update. In the meantime, everything looks very realistic up to the end of the attack.
Besides, new technologies cannot be praised. If you run the game on potent hardware at the highest settings or on the console, you may not notice that the screen is not an actual match but its simulation.
The graphics stepped a few steps forward, and it is admirable. Sometimes a screenshot from FIFA 23 can be confused with a photo from an actual match. Yes, this is achieved at too high a price, but still impressive. If the existing shortcomings are corrected, FIFA 23 will prove a huge breakthrough, not only on paper.
How does the most popular Ultimate Team mode Changes?
Many were worried about how the most popular Ultimate Team mode in FIFA 23 new league changed, where players built their club step by step and competed with other users. As expected, significant changes, unfortunately, or fortunately, did not happen. The model of teamwork in the squad has changed.
It has become more complex, and you will have to get used to it. Otherwise, there are no changes; the division system remains the same, although the famous Weekend League mode has changed for many due to global innovation that has changed a lot.
