The advantages of getting early access to a game are well known, since you’ll be able to experience all of the ins and outs of certain gameplay mechanics, features and game modes before anybody else. However, this is even more the case with FIFA 23, particularly if you play FIFA Ultimate Team.
Getting a head start allows you to build up an elite squad and become familiar with the transfer market before others even get the chance to figure out how it all works. Which provides you with quite the advantage when the game does actually launch.
In this guide, we’re going to break down everything you need to know about how to get early access for FIFA 23.
