While giving players a preview of FIFA 23, Electronic Arts accidentally leaked the World Cup mode that is designed for PlayStation devices.
On November 20, the FIFA World Cup 2022 is scheduled to take place in Qatar. DLC for the World Cup mode of FIFA 2023 is expected to come out around that time. Though no official announcement has been made, there is a limited chance of it getting delayed. Because of the aforementioned leak, players now have a fair idea of what they can expect from this particular game mode.
Before the game was launched, the announcement for the World Cup mode came through. Electronic Arts confirmed that it was joining hands with both FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023 and FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and has plans to release the post-launch content on another date. There is more than a month for the World Cup in Qatar to begin. Most players believed that one had to wait for a while before the DLC arrives. However, now there is a strong possibility of the game modes being ready and scheduled to release soon.
As per the leak, FIFA 23’s World Cup Mode will offer players as many as four different sub-options to select from. These options comprise of FIFA World Cup 2022, FIFA World Cup Live, FIFA World Cup Kick-Off and Online Tournament. FIFA 23 players, therefore, will get to enjoy a lot of exciting content during this season.
