FIFA 23 Languages


FIFA 23 uses the location of where you purchased the game to determine what languages to support. That’s why Arabic, for example, is not supported in certain countries, such as the UK. If you want to play with your native language on the screen, you need to be sure about the languages included in your region.

If you start the game and it is not in your preferred language, you can change it without effort. For PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, whenever you log into FIFA 23, it will ask you what language you want to load up the game. You need to scroll through the flags and select your language of choice. You don’t have this option for next-gen consoles, but you can change it in the game settings.

How To Change the FIFA 23 Language
  1. From the main FIFA screen, navigate to [Customise];
  2. Select [Settings] and then hover over [Game Settings];
  3. Use the Right Stick to scroll right until you see [Language Select] and the flag of the active language;
  4. Press X/A and select the language you desire.

AI controls commentators, giving a running commentary of a game as you play. While some commentators are there to fill the awkward silence, others became legendary additions to the soccer world with epic lines and goal announcements.

From the Career Mode to Ultimate Team, commentators are a core part of every FIFA game. FIFA 23 works with some of the most beloved commentators worldwide, making it feel like home for the players, regardless of country.

Audio commentary is region locked but, in certain situations, you can download commentary languages as DLC. English, French and Spanish (South American) are the only three commentary languages available everywhere. If you want to play with your native audio language and it is not one of these three, you need to be sure about the audio languages in your region.

How To Change the FIFA 23 Commentary Language

  4. Press R1/RB once to show the [11-A-Side Audio] options;
  5. Choose the Commentary Language and press X/A to download it if it is not available.
