FIFA 23 solves the mystery in the face of numerous reviews from players and experts.
After the controversies that they generate and even with novelties in the legislation, EA has had to clarify that the FIFA 23 Ultimate Team mode will continue to have loot boxes. The United Kingdom has been the country that could have changed the operation of one of the game’s star modes, but the company has received the green light due to the recent decision of the United Kingdom government not to legislate the controversial monetization system in the game.
EA accumulates numerous criticisms from players and even researchers since loot boxes have been seen linked to gambling. Likewise, FIFA games are enjoyed by numerous children, who could be affected by this system that allows pay to win in competitive modes.
“We wholeheartedly believe that Ultimate Team and FUT Packs, which have been a part of the game for over a decade, are a part of FIFA that players love – they love that the game mirrors the real-world excitement and strategy of building and manage a squad Giving players the option to spend if they want is fair“, reveals EA in the release.
“It’s worth saying that spending is completely optional in our game, and we don’t encourage spending in lieu of earning rewards through gameplay. FUT packs work the same way whether they are paid or won, and most players don’t spend in-game at all. For example, nine of the 10 open FUT packs were won in FIFA 22“.
FIFA will return in September
FIFA 23 will be released next September 30th for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, PC and Stadia. Nintendo Switch players will settle for a Legacy Edition that will update the team’s player roster. Recently, new details of the Pro clubs have been revealed.
