With EA and FIFA’s long-standing exclusive licensing arrangement coming to an end soon, FIFA 23 will be in the last game in the series to bear its iconic name, with the franchise adopting the title EA Sports FC starting with next year’s release.

Even so, there’s quite a few interesting changes to speak about in this year’s game, and ahead of its launch not long from now, here, we’re going to talk about a few key details that you should know about it.
