So, take a look at who is confirmed and rumoured to arrive, and who we think deserves a FUT Hero card in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.
Latest - Base Ratings Revealed
The official EA Sports FIFA Twitter account has made a BIG announcement regarding FUT Heroes in FUT 23.
Every single FIFA 23 FUT Hero has had their Base versions officially revealed, with the entire roster set to be made available in packs from launch.
Brazilian legend Lucio will be one of the cards that instantly sticks out, with an 89 OVR card boasting 82 pace, 89 physicality and 91 defending.
Former Manchester City powerhouse Yaya Toure enters the 'Gullit Gang' in FUT 23. The Ivory Coast legend has been handed an 87 OVR card that has five of the six base stats above 80-rated.
Another midfielder who could dominate the early FUT 23 meta is Claudio Marchisio, who has been handed an incredible 87 OVR card, with every single base statistic rated as 80 or above.
All previous FUT Heroes have remained at their ratings from FUT 22.

All Cards Revealed
EA Sports have taken to Twitter to reveal the full slate of Heroes arriving in FIFA 23.
From Premier League legends to US National Team Heroes, FIFA 23 has offered a broad and varied slate of fantastic stars from the past.
Fans can get their hands on a World Cup Hero before anyone else this year, with the special cards being offered as part of the Ultimate Edition Pre-Order bonuses.
World Cup Heroes CONFIRMED
FIFA 23 pre-order details have gone live, officially revealing World Cup Heroes arriving in FIFA 23.
If you pre-order the FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition, you will receive a limited-time World Cup FUT Hero item.
But be aware, this deal expires on August 22.
FUT Heroes were new items in FIFA 22 that represent the unforgettable moments that turned the individual players into fan favourites.
The FIFA community view FUT Heroes as one level below an ICON in Ultimate Team.
FUT Heroes have unique league-specific chemistry which is tied to their specific hero moment, providing a green Club link to any player within the same league as well as the usual nation link.
There are several players we would love to see added to the game, including one of the smoothest footballers of all time, Dimitar Berbatov.
Dimitar Berbatov (OVR 89)
Dimitar Berbatov was perhaps overshadowed by Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney during his time at Old Trafford, but boy was he a quality player on his day!
The Bulgarian ended his career in 2018 and should be rewarded with a FUT Hero in Ultimate Team that would most definitely boast five-star skill moves!
Pablo Zabaleta (OVR 86)
In 2014, Manchester City travelled to Roma needing a result to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
Missing several key players including Vincent Kompany, Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero, they pulled off a brilliant 2-0 victory, with Zabaleta providing the icing with the second and showing his passion for the club by heading straight for the supporters, kissing the badge.
Ivica Olic (OVR 85)
Ivica Olic is well remembered for scoring the winner in stoppage time against Manchester United in the 2009/10 Champions League quarter-final to make it 2-1 for FC Bayern Munich and helped them get to the semi-final.
Olic would likely receive an 85 OVR card in FUT 23 but don't worry, he'll definitely be usable with good pace, dribbling and shooting.
