Quelle surprise, Ultimate Team has received the highest amount of attention. Additionally, the team FIFA 23 Coins training mode I've long desired has come with FUT Moments. Moments provides bite-sized pockets of FIFA games through rewarding challenges designed to test your body and determine how various games work together.

It's early days but there's plenty of potential for capturing the player's career and recreate a storied moment in football's history through this type of game. The current version showcases highlights from legendary years of Jurgen Klopp and Kylian Mbappe, but in the year to come, it'll be amazing to see what EA's team could do with other legends of football like Pele and 'King' Kazuyoshi Miura.

In addition, there are massive changes to the chemical system. Chemistry doesn't have to be affected by a player's position within the formation relative to other players. This is this allows greater diversity between nations and leagues. It's unlikely to affect anyone's strategies too much, but it's nice knowing that you are able to add wildcard players and have more options in connecting them with top division players.

The search for the perfect midfielder to hit that coveted "33" chemistry, feels similar to the idea of a Squad Building Challenge now, it's almost like a deliberate. Squad Building Challenges are excellent ways to kill an afternoon doing nothing, but EA's 'sudoku for football fans' is best played on the app that comes with it, away from the clumsy console menus.

As a dark signpost of the licensing battles for football to come, FIFA has lost the J1 League license this year meaning no more cheap FUT 23 Coins  King Kazu. This has led to an abrupt change to an exciting Bronze and Silver Australian A League team and features the terrifying strike force of Hibs forward Martin Boyle and the aptly named David Ball. Similar to last time, my underdog team caused some rage-filled exits from the opponents sporting million-coin ensembles and exposed Ultimate Team as a gilded farce.
