How to Use Cross-Play Features in FIFA 23

Here is everything you need to know about all the cross-play features in FIFA 23 and how you can use them to play with your friends on other platforms.

FIFA 23 is expanding cross-play for its players beyond what they had tested out in FIFA 22. This means that you’ll be able to play with friends in a variety of ways.

But you’ll need to know how to activate cross-play and which modes actually support it for it to work.

Does FIFA 23 Have Crossplay?

Yes, cross-play in FIFA 23 is automatically enabled and supported for all platforms, with the exception of Nintendo Switch.

One important thing to note is that cross-play has generational limitations. Due to these reasons, players will only be able to cross-play in the following configurations:

  • Xbox One/PS4
  • PS5/Xbox Series X|S/PC/Stadia

When you first launch FIFA 23, you will receive a prompt that you can interact with to opt out of cross-play.

This is one of the biggest changes to FIFA 23, alongside the completely revamped chemistry system in Ultimate Team.

How to Disable Cross-Play

If you want to disable cross-play in FIFA 23, then follow these steps:

  • Head to the FIFA 23 Main Menu.
  • From here, select the “Customise” option.
  • Once in the Customise screen, you’ll be able to select “Online Settings.”
  • From here, you will need to select “Matchmaking Options.”
  • Change the “Opt-in to Cross-Play” option from either:
    • Yes, if you want cross-play to be on.
    • No, if you want to turn off cross-play.
