Matchday Experience

Something the FIFA 23 reveal trailer made clear was that pre-match will have a totally different feel in the new game.

A more immersive experience will hype you up before a big game, with cut scenes of crowds gathering outside the stadium and taking their celebrations into the grounds giving you a greater connection to the match.

New commentary will add to the matchday build-up, with HyperMotion2 giving more realism than ever before and Augmented Reality Replays providing extra detail to your play.
