FIFA 23 developer EA Sports is collaborating with comics giant Marvel to create new FUT hero art.
The company has released art showing various FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) heroes, including the three new players – Yaya Touré, Park Ji-Sung and Ricardo Carvalho – in Marvel Super Hero attire.
Last year for FIFA 22, EA Sports released images of certain heroes in original superhero uniforms.
This year, rumor has it, players will be dressed in official Marvel gear, reinvented and designed by the company.
EA also announced that a number of cosmetic items for FUT would also be Marvel-themed, including tifos, balls and kits.
David Jackson, VP of Brands at FIFA, said: “Building on last year’s launch of FUT Heroes, we wanted to bridge the worlds of pop culture and esports.
“[We did this] by collaborating with Marvel’s world-renowned artists and animators to create the ultimate crossover and create unique Heroes artwork.”
There is no official image available yet of what the in-game items will look like, although some maps have been revealed.
Everyone who pre-orders FIFA 23 will receive a Marvel FUT Heroes card August 21st.
EA Sports also recently announced that FUT packs will return to the popular mode, despite people’s concerns about loot boxes and microtransactions.
Commenting on the decision, a spokesperson for EA Sports said: “It’s worth noting that spending in our game is entirely optional and we do not encourage spending rather than earning rewards through play.
“FUT Packs work the same way whether they’re paid or earned, and most players don’t spend anything in-game at all.
“For example, nine out of ten FUT packs opened in FIFA 22 were earned.”
While the FUT packs remain the same, there are big changes coming to FUT in FIFA 23.
Player chemistry has been completely overhauled so it should be easier to get your team to work together.
New items have been introduced and players can switch positions more easily.
You can find out more about the collaboration with Marvel on the official site.
