In line with most significant video game releases, the Standard Edition will cost $59.99 (£59.99).

The Legacy Edition, which has updated rosters but “without any new development or major changes,” will cost $39.99 (£34.99) and is a throwback to earlier iterations. This is mostly for the Legacy Edition of the Nintendo Switch. It will not include any of the new gaming modes or the new HyperMotion 2 technology advancements. This is essentially FIFA 22 with a few small improvements.
EA Sports FC – what is it?
The cooperation between EA Sports and FIFA, the organization that governs the globe, will come to an end with the forthcoming FIFA 23 release.
All subsequent games will stop utilizing the FIFA name or branding after the next release, and the World Cup will also stop being included in the game as an official FIFA event. Instead, EA Sports FC will be the new name of the franchise.
After months of discussions on extending their present partnership, the two parties were unable to agree on future conditions. Although the existing agreement is set to expire in December 2022, following the World Cup, EA Sports and FIFA reached an agreement to extend it through the FIFA Women’s World Cup in July and August of 2023.
The game will change to EA Sports FC once the agreement expires. Little about the game’s structure or gameplay will fundamentally change following the split, however the name will be different and the game’s visuals may alter.
In an official release, EA Sports said, “EA SPORTS FC will enable us to actualize this potential and much more…but not before we offer our most expansive game yet with our existing naming rights partner, FIFA, for one more year.” The next FIFA will have more features, game modes, World Cup material, clubs, leagues, tournaments, and players than any previous FIFA game, we’re devoted to making sure of that.
