Last Gen players have reason to be happy too. Crossplay in FIFA 23 will also be possible for the PS4 and Xbox One platforms. EA is known for placing a lot of value on players of the older generation of consoles. Players will be able to use FIFA 23’s crossplay feature in all one-on-one modes.

EA Social in FIFA 23: The platforms on which FIFA 23 will be playable all have their own friend lists and communities. So that they can easily find each other in FIFA 23, EA has pulled another new feature out of the hat. EA Social lets you find your friends via EA Account ID and challenge them to a FIFA 23 match.
EA Social gives you an accurate overview of which friends are currently online on which console. You can also see whether the friend is compatible with crossplay or is not eligible to play due to a different platform. The EA Social Hub is easily found in the bottom right corner of the FIFA 23 main menu.
FIFA 23: Crossplay for Last Gen – How to play on PS4 and Xbox One
Crossplay for PS4 and Xbox One: Players on Last Gen consoles can breathe easy as they follow the exact same steps to play crossplay as Current Gen consoles. However, it should be said that in FIFA 23 no crossplay between the console generations is possible. PS4 FIFA 23 players will therefore not be able to challenge PS5 players.
FIFA 23: Crossplay affects the transfer market – what happens to FUT?
FUT transfer market: The crossplay feature will have a huge impact on the FIFA 23 Ultimate Team transfer market. The reason for this is that EA will throw together the transfer markets of most platforms. In FIFA 23, the following platforms share a transfer market: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Google Stadia. This will lead to significantly more players in the transfer market. However, one can only speculate about the exact implications for FUT.
The merger of the Ultimate Team transfer markets will not affect the PC and Nintendo Switch players of FIFA 23. These platforms will continue to have their own transfer market in Ultimate Team. While this makes sense for the Nintendo Switch due to the slimmed-down version without FUT Champions, for example, the question remains as to why the FIFA 23 PC community was not also taken into account.
FIFA 23: No crossplay feature for Pro Clubs mode and Nintendo Switch
Pro clubs with no crossplay: As already mentioned, the crossplay feature will only be playable for one-on-one modes. This means that Pro Clubs mode cannot take advantage of EA’s newly implemented crossplay. However, there will be a World Cup mode in FIFA 23. Nintendo Switch players are also looking into the tube. The missing crossplay function is quite understandable due to the completely different engine and game modes.
