As for the company's policy, EA told Eurogamer that FUT's lockerboxes "are an integral component to FIFA that players love," and that "giving players the opportunity to purchase if they want to can be fair." There are no plans to shift its policy regarding "surprise mechanics" until laws are passed which force it to. This doesn't make it any better however, it's worth mentioning that in light of these laws, you can currently set weekly limits on FIFA points and pack that are opened within Ultimate Team, and see the likelihood of getting high-rated players prior to opening a pack. FIFA 23 Coins also features time-limited Preview Packs in which you can look over the contents of a pack prior to making a decision to purchase it, however it's only currently available for the single pack which is updated every day.
FIFA 23 is an explosive swan song for the series (under its current name at the very least) with a definite emphasis on the theater. FUT Moments Action Replays, as well as viral-friendly game-play tweaks such as Power Shots make it a more considered, memorable game of football simulation, featuring intentional defensive play and plenty of action and goals. But the EA's Spartan approach to the modes which don't generate revenue ensures FIFA 23 is an all-too-familiar version of the previous editions, and Ultimate Team's blatant focus on microtransactions will continue to take some of the fun of the game.
FIFA 23 is now available in all countries and EA Sports are continuing to bring content to the game, such as the new launch of Marquee Matchups on October 6th 2022.
EA Sports updates their pool of Marquee Matchups every Thursday and this week is exactly the same. The pool includes Premier League games included, including Liverpool's match against Arsenal included in this week's lineup, along with fixtures from Serie A, the Bundesliga, as well as La Liga, although there are no Real Madrid and FIFA 23 Coins for sale no Barcelona!
