Is Every ICON Getting a World Cup ICON Item?
Not every Icon appears to be getting a World Cup ICON item. It is likely ICONs not selected as part of the World Cup campaign will receive another “Campaign ICON” card at another point in the FIFA 23 game cycle.
In their Pitch Notes about FUT’s launch this is what EA Sports FIFA said:
In addition to three new ICONs, we’ll also be debuting a brand new type of ICON called Campaign ICONs, which will replace ICON Moments in FUT 23. We look forward to introducing FIFA World Cup™ ICONs, our very first Campaign ICONs as part of our FIFA World Cup™ plans.@EASPORTSFIFA
These cards seem to only be the “first” set of Campaign ICONs. So expect more new ICON types to come in FIFA 23!
FIFA 23 World Cup ICONs Team 2 End Date & Time
