FIFA 23's trailer debuted today, announcing a release date of September 30 and showing off the new animation system. The trailer itself depicts a variety of games and teams playing across locales, interspersed with pre-written commentary explaining the title's new features.

For example, Hypermotion 2 Technology provides more animations and more realistic physical responses for FIFA 23's virtual players. In theory, the tech will make the game more fluid and responsive and make playing more indistinguishable from watching on TV. Hypermotion 2 features are only available in the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Stadia versions of the game. Other improvements include a revamped dribbling system, a smoother transition to shooting, brand-new acceleration mechanics, enhanced player awareness, and more.
