NEW Features Revealed

The latest FIFA 23 reveal has showcased some brand new features coming to VOLTA, with two features highlighted:

  • VOLTA Arcades: New and upgraded games bring improved crowd audio, new props, bigger stadiums, dynamically coloured balls, under foot timer, and new sound effects to dial up the entertainment in the VOLTA ARCADE.
  • Gameplay: Reworked VOLTA gameplay brings a raft of improvements to street football that dial up the flair and variety from match to match. Play on new XL pitches with bigger nets and more time on the ball, enjoy improved and polished signature abilities, unleash your flair with new skill moves like the ball roll cut and heel fake, along with a reworked skill meter that rewards team play and more responsive dribbling.

Release Date

As confirmed during the reveal trailer, FIFA 23 will be fully released on Friday, 30 September.

Pre-ordering the Ultimate Edition of the game will gain you early access from Tuesday, 27 September.

Some will be able to access the game sooner than that via a possible Beta or Demo, and then the Web App.

FIFA 23 VOLTA

VOLTA has often been described as the ugly duckling when it comes to FIFA game modes, with the FIFA Street style mode not quite catching on as EA may have hoped.

CHOOSE YOUR STYLE - VOLTA has endless customisation options in FIFA 22

A host of live updates and new features were added to VOLTA throughout FIFA 22, with the mode not really moving the needle.

With FIFA 23 set to be the latest in the franchise with EA Sports as the developer, this may be the last chance for VOLTA to impress.

What is VOLTA?

VOLTA Football acts in a very similar way to FIFA Street.

It's a game mode in which players could showcase their skills in both online and offline competition.

With a host of live updates added through FIFA 22, VOLTA certainly wasn't discarded by EA, but it's yet to reach the levels of success compared to modes like Ultimate Team.

VOLTA has the main benefit of being totally unique to any other mode in FIFA, but there will need to be some big improvements if the skill-based mode is going to take off in FIFA 23.

New Features Pitch Notes

Keep in mind that along with improvements to Arcades, Squads, Stadiums, and Signature Abilities, you’ll be able to level up your Pro Clubs Pro as well as your VOLTA Pro by playing matches solo or with friends.

New and upgraded games give you more ways to battle it out against friends.

Improved crowd audio, new props, dynamically coloured balls, new sound effects and more bring more excitement each time you step into Arcades.

There will be six new Arcade Games at launch:

  • Dribble King
  • Obstacle Course
  • Foot Golf
  • Battle Buckets
  • Capture the Ball
  • Four Squares

New XL stadiums and customisation options have also been added ahead of FIFA 23.

World Cup VOLTA?

It's been confirmed that the World Cup mode will be arriving in FIFA 23 in conjunction with the World Cup taking place in Qatar.

This confirmation has got us wondering whether a brand new World Cup mode to VOLTA football could light up the mode like never before.

IT'S COMING HOME - World Cup mode returns to FIFA 23

Similar to the mode in FIFA 10 World Cup that allowed you to steal certain players after a victory, VOLTA could allow you to face different international sides before pinching a player to become part of your squad.

Either way, the possibilities are endless for VOLTA in FIFA 23.
