The addition of FUT Crossplay in FIFA 23 adds cross-platform functionality to the FUT Transfer Market. FUT transfer markets will continue to be grouped into platform pools, with the exception of PC and Switch, which will remain separate by having their own transfer markets in the new game.

As per strong requests made by fans, cross-play will not directly affect gameplay in the new game. Therefore, only players of the same console generation can play against each other. The good thing about cross-play isn’t just being able to play with your friends. A much larger pool of players means faster matchmaking, which also means you’ll be playing against opponents of the same level more often.

Ultimate Team is the game mode most affected by this new feature. With the addition of FUT Crossplay, the FUT Transfer Market is the same across all platforms except PC and Switch. A unified marketplace will help level the playing field with massive FUT 23 card availability, smoothing out price differences and ensuring that all players face a level playing field. Additionally, cross-play is a game-changing feature in FIFA 23 for platforms that don’t have many items on the transfer market.
