Women’s soccer has been reevaluated in a major way in the last period. The performances of national and club teams, combined with media coverage from TV and newspapers, have contributed to the rise of this phenomenon, which Electronic Arts has decided to focus on heavily for FIFA 23.
The first new feature will be on the game’s cover. For the first time in the game’s history, in fact, EA’s soccer game will have a female athlete as the global testimonial for the ultimate version: it is Sam Kerr, an Australian soccer player on the Chelsea Women’s team. The Australian bomber will flank French superstar Kylian Mbappé, FIFA’s cover face for several years now. But EA certainly didn’t stop there.
To give more realism and fidelity to the movements of the female soccer players in FIFA 23, the developers used HyperMotion2 technology, which is capable of giving a new sense of realism thanks to data collected by EA and machine learning processes. What’s more, among other things, FIFA 23 will allow you to play both the men’s and women’s World Cups-it’s a first for the series.
For this, and other, information on women’s soccer, we refer you to our in-depth look at FIFA 23, whose official release is set for September 30 on consoles and PC.
