FIFA 23 is shaping up to be one of the best entries into the popular football game series yet, and we’re not just saying that because of the awesome new FIFA 23 FUT Hero cards being revealed. EA are doing a lot of things differently this time around, with new FIFA 23 chemistry changes, expanded FIFA 23 crossplay and cross-platform play, and some vital FIFA 23 gameplay changes. If that all sounds good to you, then you’ll be pleased to know that the FIFA 23 FUT Pre-Season promo is kicking off very soon.

What do we mean by that? Well, what we mean is that from August 19 at 10:00 PST / 13:00 EST / 18:00 BST, you’ll be able to start shifting some of that SBC fodder in your FIFA 22 FUT squad to get some shiny new players ahead of the FIFA 23 release date.

At the moment, there’s no telling which SBCs specifically players will be able to look forward to come Friday and the start of the FIFA 23 FUT Pre-Season promo. However, the loading screen shared by Reddit user ‘GeorgeCuz‘ online suggests that players could be in for a chance to grab some pretty high-rated cards alongside these packs for the future.

As for the specifics of this promo, we just don’t know yet. If previous years are anything to go by, we could see a handful of easier SBCs for high-rated players in FIFA 22 alongside a selection of SBCs that let players unlock packs for FIFA 23. Reddit user ‘dgdtdz’ has suggested that an 80+ Attackers pack is on the cards, which might not sound too extravagant, but it’s believable.

We know that FIFA 23 adds a new way to earn Ultimate Team rewards with FUT Moments, but this promo is the perfect place for players looking to kick off their FIFA 23 FUT career with a few more players than usual. Who knows, you might pack someone with one of the higher base FIFA 23 ratings.

If all of this has only got you more excited to play the new football game, you can find out more on all the FIFA 23 preorders and bonuses right here. If you don’t want to pick it up fully-priced, you can find out the latest regarding FIFA 23 on Game Pass here. The FIFA 23 Icons list is looking strong and we’re hopeful that this could be one of the best years for FUT in a long time.
