Fan Reactions to the FIFA 23 trailer

One group of fans was excited about playing the game, while the other didn’t receive it greatly. Most fans criticized EA for spending more resources on women’s football and introducing the women’s leagues, as they believe most people won’t even be playing that mode.

Let’s look at some of those fan tweets on the latest FIFA 23 trailer.

What would the new FIFA game offer?

The upcoming FIFA game would have most features from the last games, but with some additional tweaks. In the FIFA 23 trailer, we saw that the new game would have better graphics and game mechanics. It will have better physics which will improve the overall gameplay. Further, this game used the HyperMotion 2  technology to achieve these results.

However, the biggest selling point for the game is Women’s Football.

FIFA 23 would be the first game to feature Women’s Leagues. In the past, the Women’s National teams were the best that had been featured. Further, the Chelsea and Australian soccer player Sam Kerr featured on the FIFA 23 cover alongside the Frenchman and Paris Saint Germain striker Kylian Mbappe.
