'FIFA 23' Career Mode Overhaul Finally Gives Fans What They Want

'FIFA 23' Career Mode Overhaul Finally Gives Fans What They Want

In a lengthy blog post, EA have detailed a bunch of exciting changes coming to Career Mode, including playable famous managers.

FIFA 23 will be upon us just next month, and there’s plenty for fans to be excited about. For a start, it’s been confirmed that the game will feature cross-platform play for the first time in the series (although with the unfortunate catch that it won’t be included in the Pro Clubs mode, as a result of the “technical intricacies”).

Beyond that though, as reported by Eurogamer, EA have confirmed a bunch of nice changes coming to Career Mode. In a blog post, they explained that they want to give players “more freedom” in both customisation and gameplay, and one huge way they’re doing that is with the introduction of playable famous Premier League managers.

Take a look at the reveal trailer for FIFA 23 right here.

"We’ve seen feedback from players wanting to play as some of their [favourite] managers, and we’re happy to say FIFA 23 enables you to play as one of the 350+ authentic football managers, of which 30+ have star heads, in Career Mode,” the post reads. “Upon selecting the manager of your choice, you can [customise] their outfit and decide on the club they’ll be in charge of. You have the option of continuing to build a legacy at an authentic manager’s current club, pick a different club to start at, or even create a new club for the manager to lead to glory.”

Another big change is the addition of Playable Highlights - instead of playing through full matches, players will be able to “take control of key moments in matches in an attempt to define their outcomes” - so playing through any part of the match that’ll impact the score, but leaving the rest of it simulated.

Players’ characters can now also be given their own personalities, which will be defined based on how you act on and off the pitch. For example, congratulating your team after winning a big match will earn you Heartbeat Points (solidifying you as a big team player), whereas taking all the credit will give you Maverick Points (labelling you as individualistic and ambitious).

There’s even more detail in EA’s blog post, which goes into shopping, investments and more, but no doubt the highlight for many people here will be the addition of recognisable managers - it looks like EA will be leaving the FIFA name behind with a bang.
