Players who pre-ordered FIFA 23 before a certain date are eligible to receive a one-time World Cup FUT Heroes player.

This year, EA introduced World Cup FUT Heroes and included them as a pre-order bonus to incentivize players to pre-order the game early.

Will FUT Heroes Get Upgraded?
No, any current FUT Hero in your squad will not get upgraded to their World Cup FUT Heroes version.
World Cup FUT Heroes function more like Base/Mid/Moments Icon players, where each version is a separate player card.
How Do World Cup FUT Heroes Work?
World Cup FUT Heroes will always get full Chemistry Points. They will give one point toward their Nation’s Threshold, but they will give two points toward their League’s Threshold.
This is a great way to build chemistry since FUT Heroes basically function as two players for their league while only taking one spot in your starting 11.
It’s important to understand the new Chemistry Threshold system in FIFA 23 to build your squad properly.
