EA x Marvel
EA and Marvel Entertainment have announced a collaboration to bring a new cast of FIFA Ultimate Team Heroes to FIFA 23, reimagined and inspired by Marvel Comics.
This collaboration between two of the world’s largest entertainment brands will bring some of the game’s fan favourites to the game and celebrate their larger-than-life cult hero status alongside the amazing artists at Marvel
Each FIFA World Cup FUT Hero will receive a special illustrated FUT item at the launch of the World Cup game mode, with base versions of FUT Heroes being available at the launch of FIFA 23.
Stars like Yaya Toure, Landon Donovan and Ricardo Carvalho have all received special illustrated cards, with more set to be revealed soon.
What are FUT Heroes?
FUT Heroes are similar to Icons, although slightly inferior, as they would not have a green link with all for greater chemistry.
They are like minor Icons, with decent stats, but a notch below the best cards in the game.
On top of that, FUT Heroes have unique league-specific chemistry tied to their hero moment, which allows a green Club link to any player within the same league, on top of the usual nation link.
