PC players will be happy to hear that FIFA 23 PC version will be next-gen, unlike last year. 

The official FIFA 23 reveal is coming later today at 6:00 PM CET / 09:00 AM PT with the first trailer that should give us some juicy details about this year's iteration of the popular football simulation.

However, some details about the game have been leaked prematurely by industry insider Tom Henderson , who reveals that this year's game will be next-gen on PC in addition to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S

This is obviously fantastic news for the PC players who did not get to enjoy the best possible version of the game last year. As you may recall, FIFA 22 had exclusive next-gen features only on PS5 and Series X|S .

FIFA fans know that such practice is nothing new, since EA traditionally skipped the new-gen version on the PC platform, whenever new consoles launched. 

The publisher had a ridiculous explanation that "the majority of players don't have the necessary hardware to run the new game".

Henderson's report further reveals that EA are apparently set to reveal Hypermotion 2 as the big feature of FIFA 23 as well as some changes to the grass, which can now move and bend during sliding. 

If true, it's a welcomed improvement to the pitch fidelity, which was always one of the weakest points of FIFA games, especially close up and during replays. 

As always, these are unconfirmed reports so take everything with a grain of salt until EA share the official details later today. 

As you may know, this will be the last FIFA for EA since the publisher and football governing body FIFA have ended their partnership. EA will continue publishing a football game but under the EA Sports FC name. 

EA will only lose the FIFA name while retaining all player names, stadium and club licences, as well as rights to their mega-popular Ultimate Club mode. 

FIFA on the other hand, are on the lookout for a publisher who are willing to splash $250 million per year just for the FIFA name licence. Interested parties? Zero.
