Following reports that FIFA 23 was played for a short time on Xbox before its official release, a slew of leaks have surfaced. Music from FIFA 23 (including M.I.A., Odesza, Bad Bunny, and more) and unannounced alternate uniforms for some teams have both been leaked.
FIFA Ultimate Team information is the most sought after, of course. Ratings for a large number of players in the English Premier League have been leaked(opens in new tab). Fans of FIFA Ultimate Team are understandably rushing to set up their squads in anticipation of next month's formal release of FIFA 23.
For example, Manchester United and Cristiano Ronaldo's Ronaldo has been significantly weakened in this edition (opens in new tab). The 37-year-old Ronaldo's pace has dropped from 87 to 81, while his overall rating has dropped from 91 to 90. Even while he's still a high-priced option, he might not be as valuable to your FIFA Ultimate Team coins as he was in years past.
After transferring from Juventus (of Italy's Serie A league) to Manchester United in late 2021, Ronaldo scored 18 goals in 30 games that season, down from 29 and 31 goals, respectively, in 33 games the two seasons prior.
It appears that Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain and Sam Kerr, leader of the Australian women's national team, will both have comparable ratings in FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition. He's still ranked at #91, but he's somewhat faster on the ball, passes less, and defends more effectively, and he'll be featured prominently on the cover of the base version of FIFA 23. The real question, though, is when we will finally be able to construct a FUT featuring women's football heroes.
The release date for FIFA 23 has been scheduled on September 27 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
