FIFA 23: World Cup mode leaked – authentically recreate the men’s and women’s World Cup
This is already known: Back in July, EA confirmed that FIFA 23 will have two World Cup modes. One for the Men’s World Cup and one for the Women’s World Cup – but further details were still unknown. Without the postponed World Cup, the modes would probably have been playable in FIFA 22 – just as it was already possible in FIFA 14 and FIFA 18. However, fans can now look forward to being able to map both the men’s and women’s World Cups in FIFA 23. Now more details about the World Cup mode have become known through a leak and promise a very authentic simulation.
This is leaked: According to the leak, the World Cup mode in FIFA 23 should be available as free DLC in November. The leak does not specify whether this will be at the same time as the World Cup on November 20th. The World Cup mode is said to have both an online and offline mode, so fans who are reluctant to play online can also enjoy it. Online fans can look forward to a special mode and new content in Ultimate Team. In addition, all stadiums and teams of the World Cup in Qatar should be able to be selected authentically in FIFA 23’s World Cup mode. A legendary football team returns to FIFA after 10 years and can be tried out right away in FIFA 23’s World Cup mode.
FIFA 23: New details about the World Cup mode – Twitter leak fuels the hype
Where did the leak come from? As is so often the case, the leaks for FIFA 23 come from a Twitter channel. In this case it is @DonkTrading – an account presenting the latest FIFA 23 leaks. The second closed beta of FIFA 23 should currently be running, so it is not unlikely that the participants will be able to enjoy the new World Cup mode. While you often have to sign a non-disclosure agreement before participating in such a beta, not everyone abides by this agreement. Nevertheless, the leaks should be treated with caution, because even if they are correct, there can always be short-term changes.
The new FIFA 23 is said to be the “greatest fifa ever‘ – that’s what EA calls it. With the leaked details about the World Cup mode in FIFA 23, the Vancouver developer could come a little closer to this credo. With the World Cup taking place in November, FIFA 23 will probably get its first major update. EA is currently in the promo phase for FIFA 23, so it cannot be ruled out that new official information about the World Cup mode will be announced before the release.
