FIFA 23 broke with the mold as the Ultimate Edition will feature a female star on the cover for the first time.
When it comes to male athletes, EA Sports seems to be sticking to a winning formula.
Kylian Mbappé returns as a cover star for the third straight year.
Mbappé is not only France’s best player, but one of the best players in the world at just 23 years old.
He won Ligue 1 with Paris Saint-Germain and will travel to Qatar with France this year to defend the World Cup title.
What surprises fans, however, is that this is the first cover to feature a female player in a global release.
In America, forward Alex Morgan graced the cover of FIFA 16 alongside Lionel Messi.
However, this coverage was not available in other regions.
This time, it’s Australian player Sam Kerr who gets her shot at the cover of soccer’s most popular gaming franchise.
Sam Kerr has dominated the women’s scene both with her performances at Chelsea and as part of the Australia national team.
With Kerr on the team, Chelsea managed to secure their fourth Women’s FA Cup trophy.
With the Women’s World Cup taking place in Australia and New Zealand this year, a great performance is expected from Kerr.
The Ultimate Edition is the premium version of the game from EA Sports with a number of additional goodies.
We don’t yet know what additional content will be included, but if it’s similar to previous games, it could include FIFA Ultimate Team points, cosmetics, and an early release for fans.
This is the 30th and final FIFA game for EA Sports.
The publisher has decided not to renew its contract with the federation and instead launch a new series under the name EA Sports FC.
FIFA claims it will continue the franchise under a new publisher, with Take-Two Interactive reportedly being the company of choice.
More information about FIFA 23, such as pre-order announcements and release dates, will be announced in the coming weeks.
However, if it’s anything like previous games, we’ll likely see it available on all consoles by September.
