New Features

Here is the list of new features in FIFA 23 Career mode:

Player Personality
Player Personality

The Player Personality is one of the major features in Player Career this year. It is a fluid system that drives a personal connection to your player and it lets you define your character both on and off the pitch. For example, deciding whether or not you should pass the ball to a teammate or making a shot attempt on your own that contributes towards developing your personality in a certain direction and EA have three different personality types each type of decision contributing to those.

  • Mavericks – they’re opportunists on the pitch aggressively chasing goals individual glory and they act on intuition and they seek stardom off the pitch as well.
  • Virtuoso – Virtuosos are skilful and intelligent they use their technique to change matches and act spontaneously both on and off the pitch.
  • Heartbeat – Heartbeats are as the names implies it the heartbeat of the team they read the game one step ahead of opponents they lead by example of the pitch. It’s not just about what you do on the pitch but about the activities that you engage with off the pitch as well you can visit an injured teammate in the hospital you can buy a sports car lots of activities that you can do that have an impact on your personality as well.

The great thing about this system is that it evolves as you play the game so you may start out as a maverick which in turn will unlock specific attribute boosts that are associated to the maverick play style so for example attributes such as finishing could end up being boosted if you’re really evolved as a maverick well as as a heartbeat you might see other attributes being boosted if you get to a certain personality level so there’s a lot of freedom and it’s a never-evolving system.

Playable Highlights

Playable Highlights feature allows you to only play the highlights of the match the situations which would have an outcome that influences the result directly it’s also very attributes driven depending on the quality of the two teams facing each other so lots of variation in there a very exciting feature that kind of presents itself as a highlight reel.

New Menu
New Menu & Interface

FIFA 23 Career Mode has a new interface that allows you to get to what you need really fast spend less time navigating and spend more time actually actively thinking about how to best manage this time off the pitch. So, it’s covering a lot of key features in that EA UX design team has worked on it in terms of the user interface and interactions.

Dynamic Moments
Dynamic Moments

When it comes to winning trophies now there are some new cinematic sequences which would focus on the celebration of switching clubs or transferring players in and out of your squad to improve it but at the same time we have focused on other moments of player career as well if a new star signing arrives at your club you might see something happen with said player or if you’re achieving a key moment in your player career mode journey you could also see that highlighted as well so there’s a lot of fist bumping going around a lot of moments where you get to be surrounded by your squad mates.

Transfer Analysis
Transfer Analysis

Transfer Analysis is a new immersive and fun feature in FIFA 23 Career Mode, and it is something that really brings you into that career mode universe that you’re creating for yourself speaking of transfers it’s almost like an art you learn as you go how is this all going to play out in FIFA 23 as we learn along the way signing new players.

The transfer window is one of the most exciting times for us as football fans, so EA are happy to complement that experience in career mode this year they built a new transfer evaluation feature that will give you an analysis of all the transfers that you’re doing so after each transfer you will see this new feature evaluate how well you’ve done as a negotiator or highlight where your new signing could best fit in your squad and would also give you hints as to how you can improve your negotiation moving forward maybe get a better price for your players or maybe even get a better deal for players that you want to sell on further in your career mode play through as a manager and not just our managers getting smarter here can you tell us how the AI is becoming more strategic in-game.

So, the new CPU AI system analyses all of these parameters in a much more intelligent way so what this means is that you will see your opponent make much more informed and better decision depending on the outcome of the different situations that you generate in game if you’re really dominating a match and you score one two goals you may see your opposition make some more offensive minded substitutions to try to claw back into the game.

Authentic Managers
Authentic Managers

Authentic Managers feature has been a really long time coming FIFA, finally brings you the ability to step in the shoes of some of the world’s most famous managers you can actually pick from the authentic likeness of any authentic manager that EA have in the game and you can put them at their helm of their current club take them on to a different club.

If that’s a scenario, that you want to play out or even put them at the helm of a club that you create and manage on your own as well, so you can choose your manager you can customise their appearance you can lead your club to glory in the shoes of some of the world’s most known managers in FIFA 23 Career Mode.

  1. Hello Team,

    I know I’m the minority, but the only reason I play FIFA is for Career Mode. I thought of a small change that would make a huge impact. Could you come out with a patch for ‘23, or possibly just launch it in ‘24?

    The idea is for the transfer feature. Could you make it to where you could approach other clubs directly? For example, if I want to sell a certain player to a certain club, this feature would let me contact that club to open any kind of negotiation with them. I could then start negotiations by asking if they want to (1) take a certain player on loan, (2) buy a certain player, or (3) swap a player—also, it would be awesome if we could swap 2-5 okay players for 1 good/great one (idk if the actual league rules allow for that; I’ve tried to find that online and couldn’t. So if that’s against the league rules, then nvm the third one).

    Also, another suggestion would be applying for international coaching jobs instead of just having the code randomly offer you jobs on random days. If I know day 1 I want to coach for Italy and they don’t have a coach, I should be able to put my hat in the ring. They may not pick me, per say (to make it realistic) if i start Career Mode with a lower club and haven’t proven myself yet), but I should still be able to apply and see if they’d accept my credentials. Way less frustrating.

    Please let me know if these two ideas can be passed on to the leadership team because I believe it would revive interest for Career Mode and so many more players would want to play it again.

  2. Why don’t we have an assistant manager with your backroom staff in the game instead of you been in charge all the time because say for instance if you get sent off by the ref then you’ll have your assistant manager there to take over

  3. Improve the career mode, I liked the journey in 18 and 19, it was more personal and interactive, bring it back.

    Make press conferences about me, let I answer wat I want, mangers reactions shud be me.

    Let I negotiate contract as well, as a manager. Let make this more real n realistic

  4. Please just fix the existing issues with career mode. Please no new features which only partly work.

  5. I just want to see career mode have a storyline but with our OWN created characters so basically fifa 18 but with our created character

  6. Add a referee career mode, I think having us referee the match, control our career as a ref, move to different leagues, make our own decisions (even if they’re wrong). Maybe even add VAR if you can into the game. Just give us more options for different styles of career modes

    If possible, when in interviews allow us to use our own microphones or headsets to answer questions, rather than using default ones given to us. Let us choose our own friendlies with teams, change our coaches, have a youth team and get results from matches they have played, allow us to control the manager on the sideline e.g walk around the box, argue with officials etc, let us choose sponsorships for our teams after the first season, maybe allow us to create and edit our kits after the first season as well

  7. We need referee career mode please

    We need to be able to control the coach in the game like we can watch the match from the sideline

  8. I hope that in FIFA 23 will be :

    Weather system (Like in real football). – Maybe with unreal engine 5.

    Make your own staff (Like in Football manager). – From assistant to scout and more.

    Make your own friendly matches. – Make your own choices.

    Use team speech when the team playing good or bad (Like in football manager). – to give the team a boost.

    that the training that you can choose or yourself or the assistant manager will do it and make a program witch training
    you wanna do. – To grow from a small club to a big club.

    Upgrade option like the stadium , Youth academy , Training facility’s , and for the staff to do there work better.

    Make your own tactics how you wanna play in the match.

    Option to choose with one of your staff will do the press conference. – Like the assistant manager.

    Option to make the choice of the price ticket stadium every match , merchandise and more.

    Use the VAR in the match (Like in real football)

    Build FIFA 23 with the Unreal Engine 5. (PLEASE)

  9. The best feature Career Mode could have is to be a fully functioning mode. Anyone here asking for new features when the mode still has game breaking issues is delusional.

  10. Major improvement suggestion. Replace squad battles with ultimate team career mode. Rewards linked to game level / league level / position finished. Much more interesting than meaningless boring squad battles.

    1. I totally agree, or even offline 2 player, online 4 player. Would be great and Madden have it so why can’t we!

  11. It would be amazing if we could actually receive say up to 5 transfer offers at a time, the fact that I can’t go past a certain rating in Fifa 22 while playing as a winger is discouraging. Individual accolades for like breaking records and being recognized for your performances would be nice, negotiating our own contracts would improve things. I have never being made Captain why is that?. I love player Career mode in fact I only play Player Career Mode so FIFA fix it. We deserve that much.

  12. My main wish for future fifa career modes is a revamp of the training. At the moment it just seems like an attempt to get you to play the skills game and not actually focused of bettering your team. Yes it has an effect on sharpness but it could be so much more.

    If each unit, such as defending, dribbling, passing etc had an effect on player attributes and made players improve quicker then it would be much more enjoyable and worthwhile.

    I also think there’s an opportunity to have seperate training for youth players and possibly a youth team so your future stats don’t just sit there if you can’t get them a loan move.

    It gets a lot of hate but it’s not so far away from being a good game again. I hope it gets there.

  13. So many things, but I’ll try to rank the most important ones.

    1. Contract signing as a player
    This might already be in 22 (haven’t played it), but when I play as a player I never get to negotiate my contract. I get an offer, I accept or decline and that’s it. After that, I’m that clubs property for ever and ever, especially if I’m good since they just won’t sell me.
    For the love of god, let me negotiate the length of my contract. You have this is in ALL other EA Sports games.

    2. Influence over your club
    When you become a bigger star and captain, maybe the clubs should ask you about wishes for new signings or if you want to be penalty taker etc. Not that you can demand it, but put in a wish.

    3. Being subbed in or out once in a while
    It would be nice to be able to sub yourself out when you’re up 4-0 without losing your entire rating. And in the same way, it would be nice to maybe start at the bench due to low energy, but getting subbed in in the 65th minute.

    4. History, records, other leagues etc.
    There’s a slight history there now, but I would like to see a more proper version of it. Update the record book when somebody breaks a record, show trophies, follow the career of your former players as a manager or your former team mates as a player. See how your old team is doing.

    5. Become more popular based on results
    Today the feeling is that your value and popularity rises more because of rating than success. That’s wrong. Both team and personal titles should push those.

    1. Please add a system and a huge database of managers and managers getting sacked and hired at other clubs and you have a reputation system. That will be the best career mode ever
