FIFA 23 will offer special modes for you to play for both the World Cup in Qatar and the Women's World Cup in Australia/New Zealand as a way of celebrating the return of the World Cup this year. But when will they be available, and when can you anticipate learning the release date for the FIFA 23 World Cup mode?
As previously established, when the World Cup and Women's World Cup take place in 2022 and 2023, respectively, they will each have their own modes. The World Cup will serve as the initial event in late 2022, and the Women's World Cup mode with new additions, features, and more will follow in 2023.
Therefore, if you're looking for the most recent information on the mode's release date for FIFA 23, you can find it in this post.
FIFA 23 World Cup Mode release date
Neither the FIFA 23 World Cup mode nor the FIFA 23 Women's World Cup mode have a release date. We predict that the mode in FIFA 23 will launch on November 20, 2022, the day the World Cup in Qatar is scheduled to begin.
The Women's World Cup will then follow on July 20, 2023, thus we anticipate it to run similarly to the World Cup. Nevertheless, until EA provides further information, that is all we can say at this time.
We should start to learn more about both modes in October or November since EA has stated that it will share additional details in the weeks and months before the event.
What can we expect from it?
We don't know anything regarding the FIFA 23 World Cup mode for now. However, we may anticipate the 32 teams competing in the World Cup to be divided into the following groups based on the groupings in real life:
- Group A: Qatar, Ecuador, Senegal, Netherlands
- Group B: England, Iran, USA, Wales
- Group C: Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Poland
- Group D: France, Australia, Denmark, Tunisia
- Group E: Span, Costa Rica, Germany, Japan
- Group F: Belgium, Canada, Morocco, Croatia
- Group G: Brazil, Serbia, Switzerland, Cameroon
- Group H: Portugal, Ghana, Uruguay, South Korea
Since FUT (FIFA Ultimate Team) features and modes have been present in the majority of FIFA's new modes in recent years, we might see them in FIFA 23's World Cup modes. However, we are unsure if the option would be available both online and offline.
