This may be the last FIFA game we get from the talented team at EA, who have proven themselves to create one of the best football simulation games on the market. FIFA 23 will be released again this year after being officially revealed on July 20 with a first look at this impressive title. Fans of the series won’t need to see this trailer to know they’ll be picking up this game again. If you already know you love the type of game FIFA has been, then FIFA 23 is a safe bet to invest.
FIFA 23 will be a historic game, especially if it’s the last before a new development team moves the series forward, but mostly because of the cover athletes. Of course, EA will continue to make soccer games under the EA Sports FC name, but fans of the league might not make the jump to this new entry that doesn’t carry the FIFA name. To make the most of your time with FIFA 23 when it comes out, and to celebrate great athletes, here’s how to pre-order FIFA 23, each edition, as well as the bonuses that accompany them.
FIFA 23, being one of the most popular games of the year, will be sold at any retail store that carries games. Additionally, you can pre-order digitally from the PlayStation and Xbox stores online through the consoles themselves, all of which are easily selected from the official EA store page for FIFA 23.
There is always a standard type pre-order option, and FIFA 23 is no different. This will cost you the base price of a new game on your console, which is $60 if you buy the PS4, Xbox One, or PC version and $70 for the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions. If you have EA Play, these prices are reduced to $54 and $63 respectively. This version of the game will feature Kylian Mbappe as the cover athlete unless you buy the game in Australia or New Zealand, in which case Sam Kerr will grace the cover art. Here’s what you get for pre-ordering this edition:
- FUT Team of the Week Player Item
- FUT Kylian Mbappe loan item (for five FIFA Ultimate Team matches)
- Choice of FUT Ambassador Player (Davies, Son or Vinicius Jr. for three FUT matches)
- Local talent in career mode
For Ultimate fans who like to invest heavily in the game, especially in the Ultimate Team mode, the Ultimate Edition will be worth the extra money. This edition will cost you $100 (or $90 if you have EA Play) but will give you both Mpappe and Kerr on a split cover, which will be the first time a female athlete has appeared on a FIFA cover. Here’s what else you get for grabbing this bundle:
- Everything offered in the standard edition pre-order
- Double right (if playing on console)
- A player to watch
- Limited Time FIFA World Cup FUT Hero Item
- Three-day early access
- 4,600 FIFA Points
