Now that FIFA 23 is fully underway, here is how to transfer your FIFA Points from the previous game, FIFA 22.
FIFA Points have been a feature of Ultimate Team for a number of years. They are a virtual currency, which players purchase using real-life money. Gamers can then use the points to buy packs or enter FUT drafts.
By purchasing these packs, gamers can use the packed cards in their Ultimate Team and improve their squads. Alternatively, you can sell pack content (players and other items) on the transfer market, thus boosting your club’s coin total.
FIFA Points are therefore used by some players to improve their FUT squad. They do, of course, involve extra cost on top of the game, though.
Because of this, FIFA 22 players will be keen to know how to transfer points from the previous game onto the 23 version. EA Sports have now detailed how this will work.
How to transfer your FIFA points from 22 to 23
On the EA help page, the video game giant confirmed that you are able to transfer FIFA Points across games. However, this does not happen before the release of the full game.
Once you have access to the full game via your console on launch day, simply log in to Ultimate Team and your FIFA points will transfer across. As a result, the earliest you can shift FIFA points from 22 to 23 is September 27. This is the day the EA Play free trial begins, plus when Ultimate Edition pre-order gamers can start playing.
It is also worth mentioning that points can only switch between games bought on the same console family. So, if you have points on FIFA 22 for PlayStation and buy FIFA 23 for Xbox, you cannot transfer your points.
Additionally, this transfer is non-reversible. When your points move to the new game, they cannot switch back to FIFA 22.
This info may prove important after some recent news circulated regarding the FIFA point prices.
FIFA Point prices change for upcoming edition
Although the top-end price is unchanged, EA has adjusted the tiers of FIFA Points which you can purchase in the store. Prices in GBP are ones that are unchanged from FIFA 22, the rest are TBC. These figures, via Dexerto, are in US Dollars.
Firstly, the lowest number you can buy is 100 points, which comes in at $0.99. Then, 500 FIFA points are $4.99 (£3.99), with 1050 $9.99 (£7.99). Players on last year’s game may notice that the 250 and 750-point options are now gone.
Moving up the scale, 1600 FIFA points are still $14.99 (£11.99). 2800 points, replacing 2200 as a tier, comes in at $24.99. Finally, 5900 points (up from 4600 in FIFA 22) is $49.99, and 12000 of the virtual currency is still at $99.99 (£79.99).
For those who pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition, though, there is a bonus. They will have 4600 FIFA points to use on the new game right off the bat.
Thankfully, if you have any spare from the departing version, they will be joining you when you start FIFA 23.
