EA has released a new deep dive for FIFA 23’s Career Mode, which will feature both player and manager careers once again, with expanded progression and a new gameplay format dubbed ‘Playable Highlights’, which will enable you to control key moments during matches to help determine their outcomes.
The rest of the match will be simulated by FIFA 23’s match engine, the background system taking into account each side’s offensive and defensive strengths and weaknesses, as well as Team OVR, Fitness, Sharpness, and Morale stats. Scoring chances are calculated and spread across the match, and each then triggers a match highlight, enabling you to interject and take control to potentially convert a goalscoring opportunity or stop the AI opposition scoring against you.
“With Playable Highlights, we’ve compressed the match into an intense, bite-sized experience that will enable you to cruise through seasons while conserving your focus for the encounters you feel are most important, all without giving up control over the results you generate along the way,” EA explains in the latest Pitch Notes update.
“The new experience is available alongside all of the previous match progression options, so you can still choose to play the full match, Sim To End, or use the Interactive Sim,” the article continues. “As a manager, you can choose to play all of the highlights in a match, or to play only the attacking ones by allowing the simulation to decide the defensive outcomes.”
