If you're wondering if FIFA 23 has crossplay on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, then you're in luck, as we've got all the details on how it works, alongside whether cross-platform progression is available within the game. We will also dive into how the market works in FIFA 23 now that it is shared between both Xbox and PlayStation. 

So, to find out everything there is to know about the crossplay system in FIFA 23, keep reading for everything you need to know.

Yes, FIFA 23 does feature cross-platform play. Although this is not technically the first time crossplay has appeared in the franchise, as FIFA 22 featured it in the Online Friendlies and Online Seasons game modes, it is the first proper expansion of the feature to the most populated modes.

FIFA 23 crossplay is available within the following game modes:

  • Online Friendlies
  • FUT Play a Friend
  • FUT Online Friendlies
  • Online Seasons
  • FUT Rivals
  • FUT Champions
  • FUT Online Draft

The one key feature that is missing from this list is the Pro Clubs game mode, you can find out the status on Pro Clubs crossplay in FIFA 23 here.

However, it is unfortunately not quite as simple as that makes it seem. While the notion that FIFA 23 has crossplay is correct, it is unfortunately split into two distinct platform groups, somewhat restricting who you can play with. These groups are defined by the platform generation you play on, so Xbox One and PS4 players are sadly isolated from the current set of consoles and PC.

You are still able to play with people across your console generation, but you cannot breach these boundaries, presumably due to the advanced features like Hypermotion2 that have not made it to the previous-gen editions of the game.

The two FIFA 23 crossplay groups are as follows:

  • PlayStation 4, Xbox One
  • PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X│S, PC (via Steam/Origin)

Furthermore, the crossplay feature will be automatically enabled when you launch FIFA 23 for the first time, and you'll need to disable it if it's something you'd like to restrict.

Another huge feature that arrived in tandem with crossplay to the game is a never-before-seen FIFA 23 cross-market system. Previously, each platform would possess its own transfer market, where you could only buy and sell cards put up by players from your current platform. 

In FIFA 23 however, this is completely opening up, creating a (nearly) all-encompassing transfer market where you can trade with almost anyone, regardless of platform. The one key caveat is that PC and the Nintendo Switch will have their own individual markets, separate from the rest.

The three FIFA 23 cross-market transfer market platform pools are:

  • PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X│S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
  • PC
  • Switch

Finally, there transfer market pools for the FIFA 23 cross-market system will be enabled regardless of whether you opt out of crossplay or not, meaning that there is no way to turn it off if you didn't want it.

There is currently no cross-platform progression in FIFA 23, therefore, if you were wanting to transfer to a different platform, whether temporarily or permanently, you would have to start a completely new club from the beginning again.

It would have been a great feature to include for players with a Steam Deck, for example, allowing them to continue their PS5 grind on the go, but this will not be the case. 

So, that rounds off everything you need to know about FIFA 23 crossplay, including other parallel features like cross-market and cross-platform progression. Check out our FIFA homepage for the latest news and guides, or take a look at the best camera settings to use in FIFA 23.
