Electronic Arts partnered with Marvel Entertainment to introduce a new set known as FIFA Ultimate Team Heroes to FIFA 23. It’s pretty much FUT but reimagined and inspired by Marvel Comics. This partnership hopes to bring some of the fan favorites to the game and be able to celebrate their larger-than-life cult hero status.

In recognition of their memorable careers not just for the club but also for the country, each FIFA World Cup FUT Hero gets a special illustrated FUT item at the launch of the World Cup game mode along with base versions of FUT Heroes available at launch of FIFA 23.

The collaboration also comes with other vanity items related to the fan-favorite heroes being immortalized as Marvel-inspired Heroes. These include, among others, tifos, kits, and balls. Fans can also get their hands on an upcoming online Marvel Heroes comic book alongside Marvel-written bios and limited physical quantities available at a later date.

Pre-order Now

FIFA 23 is coming out this September 30 on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia. This latest entry in the franchise features women’s club teams for the first time by including the Barclays Women’s Super League and Division 1 Arkema. The game also offers cross-play features to connect and engage football fans like never before.

Pre-orders for the game are now open. Those who buy the FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition can enjoy the game during early access on September 27.

One feature that many players will love is the advancements to the game’s physics system and HyperMotion2 technology. They now offer a more immersive new gameplay experience. Team and player movements, for example, are not only more responsive but also smart and authentic. Players can also look forward to:

  • New intelligent dribbling system.
  • More natural and fluid transition to shooting.
  • All-new acceleration mechanics.
  • Enhanced player awareness.

Meanwhile, superstars Kylian Mbappé and Sam Kerr are the cover athletes for FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition. They also appear in solo covers for the same game. Mbappé, for example, is the cover of the Standard Edition. Kerr is the cover of the Standard Edition for the Australia and New Zealand game releases.
