If you're here, then you probably want to know if FIFA 23 is available on Xbox Game Pass. The glorious game of football (soccer) has returned to Xbox and PC systems around the world. It sports stunning graphics, new gameplay mechanics, and a revamped career mode. However, can you play FIFA 23 on Game Pass from day one? Let's find out.

Can You Play FIFA 23 With Xbox Game Pass?

If you believed that you could play FIFA 23 with Xbox Game Pass, you may have scored an own goal. That's because the game has not been released on the subscription service yet. However, there is a likely possibility that FIFA 23 will release on Xbox Game Pass in the future. Last year's entry, for example, was released on June 23 for Xbox Game Pass subscribers. FIFA 23 may be out for Game Pass in a similar timeframe.

Despite this bad news, having an Xbox Game Pass subscription does let you try FIFA 23 for 10 hours absolutely free as EA Play is included. You'll need to connect your Game Pass account to the EA app to get it to work if you're on a PC. On Xbox consoles, it should be available instantly if you're logged in to the right account.

There is a third way you can play FIFA 23 without paying full price. If you have a gaming PC, you can subscribe to EA Play Pro. It's pretty expensive at £14.99 ($19.99) a month or £89.99 ($129.99) a year, but you gain access to all of EA's newest releases at launch day, including FIFA 23 and most likely the highly anticipated Dead Space remake.
