and New Zealand
playing joint hosts to this year's FIFA Women’s World Cup
, EA Sports
has revealed that a free update will make its way to FIFA 23
at the end of June celebrating both the IRL event, while also offering up some cool new features in-game.
Here's all the official details from EA:
Embark on your FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 journey to lead your country as a star of the game - or as your very own custom Avatar - in the all new Lead Your Country mode. Explore additional modes to play through the full competition with the single player Tournament Mode, or choose to pick up and play locally against friends or AI in Kick Off:
These game modes contribute to the most immersive EA SPORTS™ FIFA Women’s World Cup experience ever, complete with each of the 32 qualified nations, custom stadium dressings, cinematics, match presentations, dedicated commentary, and of course, the authentic trophy to hoist at the end.
- Lead Your Country: Put yourself at the heart of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 with a brand new game mode that allows you to step into the boots of one specific player leading their nation to glory. Choose between a real player poised to take the tournament by storm or create your own custom Avatar in the national team of your choice to write yourself into FIFA Women’s World Cup history. As you play through the stages, you’ll have the option to control just that player or the whole national team as you lead your country all the way to the trophy.
- Tournament Mode: Play through the authentic FIFA Women’s World Cup in a single player tournament mode that allows you to write (or rewrite) the future for your nation. Choose one of the 32 qualified nations and play your way out of their true-to-life group and through the knockouts towards FIFA Women’s World Cup glory.
- Kick Off: Experience the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ on your terms in a match against friends locally, or against the AI, by selecting from a Group Stage or Knockout Round match and two of the 32 qualified nations.
The FIFA Woman's World Cup kicks off in July when New Zealand will take on Norway in the opening game, followed by Australia later that evening taking on Ireland.
