FIFA 23 is finally upon, giving fans access to all the latest transfers, gameplay features and more.
But is the football sim cross-platform?
What is cross-platform play in gaming?
Cross-platform gaming applies to multiplayer titles in which you battle or join teams with other people online.
It means you can play with or against players who are using other consoles or devices.
For instance, if you own an Xbox Series X, you can be matched with people who are using a PlayStation 5 or PC.
Cross-platform games have a much larger player base, meaning there are more people you can match up with.
Huge franchises including Call of Duty and Fortnite already use it.
Is FIFA 23 cross-platform?
EA Sports confirmed earlier this year that FIFA 23 would be the first FIFA game to feature cross-platform play.
A number of 1v1 game modes such as Ultimate Team use the feature, allowing those on Xbox, PlayStation and PC to play one another.
All platforms with crossplay share a single FUT Transfer Market.
It’s likely to feature in all EA Sports football games going forward, even as the franchise makes its acrimonious split with FIFA, football’s global governing body.
What has EA said about it?
EA had this to say about cross-platform gaming in FIFA 23:
“In FIFA 23, cross-play will be available for players on the same platform generation.
“PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Stadia, and PC versions of FIFA 23 will be cross-play compatible with one another, and PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of FIFA 23 will be cross-play compatible with one another.
“In FIFA 23, cross-play will be available at launch in FUT Division Rivals (except Co-Op), FUT Champions, FUT Ultimate Online Draft, FUT Online Friendlies (except Co-Op), FUT Play a Friend, Online Friendlies, Online Seasons (except Co-Op Seasons) and the Virtual Bundesliga competitive game mode that is available to players based in Germany.
“Cross-play is initially enabled for all players when launching FIFA 23 for the first time, provided the platform level settings allow for it, and it can be opted out of at any time.
How do I opt-out of cross-play?
If for whatever reason you don’t wish to play with people on other devices, you can disable cross-play in FIFA 23’s settings.
To do this, press the R2 or RT Button in the main menu to bring up the crossplay menu.
Now, you can enable or disable crossplay. You can change your mind and swap the settings back at any time.
