Just a week or so after the cover art for the game was revealed, fans have been given the biggest teaser as to what Fifa 23’s gameplay is going to look like.
The final Fifa in the series before EA rebrands to its ‘EA Sports FC’ new look, there looks to be plenty of reason for fans to be excited ahead of Fifa 23’s release on Friday, September 30, 2022. Check out Gamelevate as we run you through the latest reveals and what we know so far about the gameplay in Fifa 23.
HyperMotion 2 Technology
Fifa 22 was released using a new type of technology called HyperMotion. The technology was designed to mimic and recreate the natural movements make when playing the beautiful game on the pitch. For Fifa 23, EA have gone all-out with an upgrade to the gameplay with their brand-new HyperMotion 2 technology.
EA created the HyperMotion2 technology using the state-of-the-art Xsens suits and will implement it on the back of capturing two full 90-minute games at Real Zaragoza’s stadium in Spain. For reference, that is double the amount of gameplay than what was captured for FIFA 22. As well as players, the technology was also used to capture officials and benches, creating an even more realistic experience.
With the expanded women’s gameplay modes, one of the two 90-minute matches EA captured was a women’s match, a first for the series.
HyperMotion technology will once again be the foundation for FIFA 23 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Stadia.
On top of the 11v11 football capture testing they carried out, EA has also run five different unique training drills to implement even more animations for the game. In total, EA’s Xsens suits captured over 6000 true-to-life HyperMotion enabled animations.
In full, the Fifa 23 algorithm is learning from 9.2 million frames of data that were captured from the 11v11 matches in Zaragoza. This will write six new real-time animations designed to make every interaction feel completely different each time players get the ball.
Expect wholesale changes to the way in which your players on the pitch shoot, take set-pieces, tackle, dribble, and jockey opponents, with all of these parts of the game being given the biggest revamps on the back of these new technologies.
EA gets a lot of flack when it comes to supposedly recycle the same tried-and-tested mechanics year in, year out. But, the early signs coming out of Fifa 23 are seriously exciting, and a real step forward in terms of the technological innovation for the series.
