FIFA 23 BETA

FIFA 23 Beta allows a closed group of players to test the game before its release to the general public.

FIFA 23 Closed Beta


Every year, EA allows players to test the new title before it goes out, so they can give feedback about potential anomalies and suggest changes. It isn’t the final version and doesn’t include all new features and game modes, but it already gives a solid idea about what the game will look like.

Players selected for the FIFA 23 Beta receive an invitation to the Kick-Off, Online Seasons, Online Friendlies, Practice Arena and, at least, one of the other game modes: Pro Clubs, Career Mode, VOLTA FOOTBALL and Ultimate Team. In the first days, they are limited to the game modes assigned to them, but in the last week, all game modes are unlocked, and they are free to play whatever they want.

The lucky users who get invited to test the game are required to offer feedback so that EA Sports can tweak the game and fix any last-minute bugs before the official release. They can do it in a forum created for the purpose, where the only people who have access to it are the invited registered players. The closed beta is like a big test for the developer team, so they may ask to test something specifically. For example, in Ultimate Team game mode, players receive credits and are asked to use them to buy packs.

Frequently Asked Questions
It goes out on August 11 and lasts for around three weeks.
You need to be invited and dowload the game.
You can only play the game modes that are unlocked to you. Still, even if you haven’t been selected to test FUT, you will have a chance to try it in the last week when all game modes are released for everyone.
If you get invited, most likely it will be for the game modes you play most. However, this doesn’t happen all the time.
It’s only available in English. That’s one of the reasons why only players from countries in which English is the native language are invited.
The file you have to download is 47 to 51 Gb, no matter the game modes for which you have been selected.
No. Generally speaking, the players and ratings used in the FIFA 23 Closed Beta are the ones from FIFA 22. Even if you find differences, it doesn’t mean that those ratings will be used on the final game release.
No progress made on the FIFA 23 Beta carries over to the final game. As soon as the final version is released, everything is reset.
For the players, it’s their first chance to play the new title but for EA it’s much more than that. FIFA 23 is very complex. It joins several game modes together, that have been developed over the years. There are several different teams responsible for developing determined projects and areas of the game that might or might not be integrated into the final product according to deadlines, the work’s quality and other economic and strategic factors. This means that these teams are not always working for the next FIFA.

The whole project must be exhaustively tested out for them to make sure it works correctly. That’s why Electronic Arts usually invite a group of volunteers to test the game. After the adjustments regarding the first feedback period are made, the Alpha version is released. The game’s official release occurs at the end of September and always comes along with an update that’s supposed to fix the anomalies detected after the disks are printed out. Between one thing and the other, there’s the Beta.
To receive a code, you need to have been selected. Pay attention to your mailbox to see if you were invited. Only selected players can play the Beta.
Only players who were invited will be able to play the FIFA 23 Beta. EA will send two batches of codes: the first on the second week of August, right before the Beta release date, and the other one two weeks later. Usually, it is available to preload for beta testers 24 hours before the opening date.
Follow these two simple steps:

Update Your Contact Preferences
This will inform EA that you are available to receive emails from them and eventually the FIFA 23 Beta invitation

  1. Go to the EA website;
  2. Click in the top-right avatar icon and login into your account;
  3. Select ‘Account Settings’;
  4. Go to ‘Email Preferences’ and check the box ‘Yes, email me about products, news, events and promotions consistent with EA Privacy and Cookie Policy’;
  5. Confirm that FIFA 21, FIFA 22 and FIFA Ultimate Team are all checked on the ‘Preferred Games’ box (if you can’t see them, click in ‘Add More’);
  6. Check your ‘Preferred Platforms’;
  7. Click on the ‘Update’ button at the bottom of the page.

Update Your Game Tester Program
This will inform EA that you are available to test FIFA and other games

  1. After updating your contact preferences, click in the ‘Community Playtesting’ button;
  2. Follow the instructions to sign up.
There is not much more you can do. Your odds aren’t higher if you live close to EA offices, played thousands of FIFA 22 matches or are a professional player. Game advisors cannot authorize and provide email invites if you did not receive one. Be aware that updating your contact preferences and your game test program may help but does not guarantee you an invite.
Before anything else you need to be invited. The email sent to you includes a unique Beta code that you will use to download the game.

PlayStation
  1. Select the PlayStation Store icon from the home screen;
  2. Select ‘More’ and then ‘Redeem Code’;
  3. Select ‘Account Settings’;
  4. Enter the 12-character code and start the download.
Xbox
  1. Go to ‘Games’ under ‘Store’;
  2. Select ‘More’ and then ‘Redeem Code’;
  3. Select ‘Use a Code’ and sign in if prompted;
  4. Enter the 25-character code and start the download.
You need a direct invite to try out the FIFA 23 Beta. You cannot buy it from someone. A Beta code is created just for a specific player and it can’t be transferred or shared with another player. It won’t work in other accounts. If you found invitations for sale, you should know that they are not legit because invitations are always associated with the Origin account of the owner.
Stay alert to your mailbox, the one you use for your FIFA account, to see if you were invited or not. Pay attention to all account email folders, including spam. If you’ve changed your email address or no longer have access to the one you used to create your account, swap emails from one account to another.

EA sends all Beta communication from noreply@ea.com. Add this address as a safe sender to receive emails. Check your spam, junk, or social folder for any missed email messages from EA@e.ea.com. Don’t trust any emails sent from a different domain or ever share your credentials.
By accepting the invitation, players are obliged to fulfil the agreement of the closed beta, which includes a confidentiality term. It forces the participants to not divulge any information regarding the game outside of the forum created for this purpose. Live streaming and image capturing of Closed Beta gameplay are against the rules.
If you don’t fulfil the confidentiality term, you will lose access to the current beta and to any other, that’s released afterwards. Other measures can be taken for more serious cases, like copyright claims and permanent bans.
