The promised World Cup modes for FIFA 23 have been leaked ahead of schedule. The official tie-in, which will let players run through the upcoming real-life tournament, popped up early on PS5. But before it was pulled, people managed to take plenty of screenshots, which are now doing the rounds on social media.
Four modes will be made available according to these leaks: FIFA World Cup Live, FIFA World Cup Kick-Off, Online Tournament, and FIFA World Cup 2022. What's more, you'll be able to play as 48 different international teams — that's despite the fact that the real tournament only features 32. We assume these additional squads are those who only just missed out on qualification.
The real World Cup begins in November, by the way, so these modes should be releasing very soon. And if you're wondering why the heck there's a World Cup in the winter, it's because the whole thing's taking place in Qatar. The event is already buried in controversy, but at least you'll be able to fulfil your international footballing fantasies in FIFA 23, hopefully without the human rights violations and rampant corruption.
