The FIFA 23 reveal trailer showcased some breath-taking gameplay, with HyperMotion2 set to take the new game by storm.
The reveal trailer also showcased Cross-Play as a new feature in FIFA 23, revealing all the modes compatible with this new feature.
Whilst many fans are delighted to see this arrive, there has been one major exclusion that has led to serious backlash from the community.
VFL, the self-titled home of Pro Clubs, has taken to Twitter to pen a strongly worded statement regarding EA's decision to exclude Pro Clubs from the list of Cross-Play compatible game modes in FIFA 23.
The statement details the many years of frustration that Pro Clubs players have felt, demanding answers from FIFA 23's developers.
VFL have suggested in their statement that this recent decision to exclude Pro Clubs from cross-play compatibility will now see the game mode die, with yet another oversight seeing modes other than Ultimate Team desperately suffer.
#SaveProClubs is the cry from VFL, who are demanding that EA Sports provide answers.
Similar to the anger we saw amongst the FIFA Career Mode community a few years back, we could see yet another revolt, as EA's focus on the half-baked implementation of new features failing to cut the mustard.
Cross-Play Game Modes
The confirmed game modes for cross-play in FIFA 23 are:
- Online Friendlies
- Ultimate Team
- Online Seasons
Unfortunately, there is no mention of cross-play in relation to Pro Clubs, with the most sociable mode set to miss out.
PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S Stadia, and PC versions of FIFA 23 will be cross-play compatible.
PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of FIFA 23 will be cross-play compatible with one another.
Old generation consoles and current generation consoles will not be compatible for cross-play.
