FIFA 23 is the last official game released by EA Sports in partnership with FIFA. Can EA make this last title special with the official license? Fans have repeatedly criticized the lack of innovation in FIFA games over the past few years. Whether this will change with the new game is questionable and many fans are already rather critical of the new game. Nevertheless, there are some changes that FIFA 23 can score with.
World Cup and Women's Soccer in FIFA 23
EA first added women's soccer to the FIFA series in 2015. Back then, however, there were only a few teams that players could hardly relate to. However, over the years the studio has added more and more women to the game and in FIFA 22 players were even able to create their own players. Now EA wants to take women's football to a new level in FIFA 23.
In FIFA 23, women also play an important role.
Of course, the men don't miss out in the new FIFA 23 either. As a player, you can take part in the FIFA World Cup in Qatar and prove your skills in many different online modes.
Realism through HyperMotion2
HyperMotion2 technology is EA's proprietary engine for creating player animations. Furthermore, HyperMotion is responsible for making the computer-controlled players on your field feel like real players. In FIFA 23, EA has reworked this technology to give players the feeling of true authenticity. Player animations are more realistic than ever with HyperMotion2. For the animations of the soccer players, EA followed the movements of real players to make the animations feel as natural as possible. It is also noteworthy that the focus here is on real players and not simply transferring the animations of the players to the players. Instead, they have their own animation system from the ground up.

Incidentally, the animations in FIFA 23 are also not precalculated or fixed. Using millions of data points from real players, HyperMotion calculates the animations in real time. This results in players' movements appearing even more responsive and intelligent than ever before. The game also features a new dribbling system, revised shot transitions, and improved player awareness. All this should result in you getting the best gaming experience ever in FIFA 23.
FIFA 23 will be released on September 30th for PlayStation 4&5, Xbox One and Series X/S, Stadia and PC. What is particularly pleasing for fans is that the game is also optimized for the PC. However, in comments below the trailer, it can be seen that the innovation in FIFA 23 is not enough for fans. They want a better career mode, and some players even suspect EA is saving their best ideas for the next game in the series. After all, the game will no longer run under the FIFA name from next year and EA must be able to convince with its own brand. However, this is pure speculation.
