Excited about FIFA 23 crossplay? After years of waiting, FIFA 23 is finally going to support cross-platform play at launch. EA has been hesitant to add this must-requested feature to their sports games, but this is the year everything changes. EA ran a FIFA 22 crossplay functionality test back in May, giving current generation console owners the chance to play against a new set of opponents.

EA’s FIFA 22 crossplay test was a taste of what’s to come, setting the stage to introduce FIFA 23 crossplay to players later this year. FIFA’s crossplay support doesn’t end there, as there’s also information about a shared transfer market across specific platforms.

FIFA 23 crossplay modes

With the exception of Pro Clubs and any of the co-op specific modes, it appears every other online-enabled mode features cross-platform play in FIFA 23.

Can PC players face off against PlayStation 5 players using FIFA 23 crossplay?

Yes, PC players can play against PlayStation 5, Xbox Sereis X/S, and Stadia players thanks to FIFA 23 crossplay. EA has confirmed that the PC version of FIFA 23 has been upgraded to the next-generation engine, the same version as the Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5. As a result, the FIFA 23 system requirements are considerably higher this year.

Which platforms share a transfer market in FIFA 23?

FIFA 23 may be split up into two versions of the game, but the transfer markets aren’t segmented into the same pools as the crossplay groupings. FIFA 23 on PC has its own transfer market, it doesn’t share listings with any other platform.

Here are the platforms which feature a shared FUT transfer market pool in FIFA 23:

  • PlayStation 4
  • PlayStation 5
  • Xbox One
  • Xbox Series X/S
  • Stadia
