New FIFA 23 starheads expected

Generally, EA only has so much manpower, and so not every player in the world can receive a full player scan to incorporate them into the game.

However, after the events of the 2021-22 football and other factors such as license acquisition, we’re anticipating some new face scans for FIFA 23.


After being away since 2020 known as Calcio Piemento, the Serie A giants are set to be fully reintegrated back into FIFA 23 by getting their name back, amongst other official properties. As such, we expect the squad to get a complete overhaul in the player face department to signify that Juventus is well and truly back in FIFA 23.

The 2022 World Cup is set to be the most unusual one ever as it will take place during the regular season. A Christmas welcome beckons and as EA has already confirmed that FIFA 23 will get World Cup content, it’s likely that all 32 teams involved will be captured in all their glory.
