Crossplay: Which platforms can play with each other?
FIFA 23 is the first offshoot of the series, the crossplay in most game modes allows. You can challenge friends online in friendlies, participate in online seasons, pit your FUT teams against each other, or play FUT Rivals, Drafts, and Champions with or against each other.
That but does not work on all platforms and not without restrictions. The reason is that there are two different versions of FIFA 23: Old-Gen and Current-Gen. For example, the old-gen versions on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One do not have the new running styles.
Therefore, only the following systems can start a match with each other:
- PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC
- PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
FIFA 23 for the Nintendo Switch has no crossplay function.
How to enable and disable crossplay in FIFA 23
Crossplay is automatically enabled in FIFA 23 if your console settings allow interaction with other platforms. However, the function can be deactivated will. Especially in FUT mode, you might not want to compete against a player who has the better controller on his platform or generally better latency thanks to the in-house server.
To enable or disable crossplay, you have to open the “Online Settings” in FIFA 23. These can be found in FUT, VOLTA FOOTBALL and the FIFA main menu. From there, select the “Matchmaking Options” and select “Yes” or “No” for “Enable Crossplay” accordingly.
However, keep in mind that disabling the crossplay function may to longer waiting times when looking for a player can lead. Because you are only available to competitors on the same platform.
There is certain areas that you cannot separate from the crossplay feature. These are, for example, global leaderboards or the FUT transfer market. With the exception of PC and Switch, the latter is grouped into platform groups. This allows Xbox players to interact with PlayStation or Stadia users’ items.
