As previously reported, cross-play looks set to arrive in FIFA 23!
Find out everything you need to know about the cross-play announcement below.
Cross-play testing in FIFA 22 went live late on Tuesday, 3 May.
The announcement also included the game modes that will be available for fans to test, with Online Seasons and Online Friendlies included.
Right, let's dive right in with the biggest question of all, what game modes are available?
The cross-play test in FIFA 22 is only available in Online Seasons and Online Friendlies.
This means that you can choose to play FIFA 22 with a friend on another platform, or climb the Online Seasons Divisions against players potentially playing on other platforms.
EA has stated that they are limiting the cross-play game modes to these two "with the aim of reducing the chance for introducing new issues into the game".
Annoyingly, there will not be cross-gen testing, with the cross-play test in FIFA 22 only available for next-gen consoles.
This means players on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia will be the only ones able to access the cross-play test.
How to play
Once the cross-play test is activated and you’re in the main menu of FIFA 22, you can find a widget in the bottom right-hand corner that can be opened with the corresponding button prompt, as pictured below.
From here, you can simply follow the button prompt to enable or disable your cross-play test participation.
In this widget, you can also search for friends regardless of their platform, and you can also block and/or mute someone if desired.
You can also control your Cross-play test participation by visiting the Matchmaking Options Settings screen, as pictured below.
It is as simple as playing with a friend online now, but with a couple of extra settings!
