FM23 Console Key Features

Matchdays now have a more ‘hands-on’ feel to them. To make the core avenues through which a manager can influence a match more obvious, there are new radial menus and a refined user interface.

Remodeled the Touchline Tablet, evolving something that appeared sporadically between highlights to the go-to place for match stats, player stats, latest scores and tactical advice.

Those additions, combined with controller functionality and focus improvements, combine to provide a more active match experience, pulling you into the heart of the on-pitch action.

The changes to the Out of Possession Tactical Instructions are incorporated into FM23 Console as well. The Offside Trap has gone, and the language around lines of engagement and defensive width has changed to make it more obvious.

Tied to this is the integration of Team Talks into a console edition for the first time. Available at half-time and full-time, these interactions with your players will allow you to make your voice heard with a range of reactions and become a difference-maker in every situation.

Introduced Recruitment Focuses to FM23 Console. These Focuses give you the tools to recruit the way you want to – you can set specific conditions for a role you want to fill or just identify a league/nation you’re interested in and see what your Scouts find.

Also introduced the Dynamic Manager Timeline as a new way of displaying, tracking and sharing the milestones and achievements you record.

Based on an Events system that tracks all the highs and lows of your career, the timeline will offer a snapshot of your most notable moments, from title wins to giving academy players their debuts, in chronological order. This timeline will evolve with you as you continue along the path to footballing glory.

FM23 Console also includes a raft of accessibility changes. There are new and improved Colour-Blind options available for those with Protanopia, Deuteranopia and Tritanopia.

During matches, the game will automatically pause at pivotal moments, allowing users to process the game at their speed. In a similar fashion, the new onboarding process ensures that whether you’re an experienced player or a series newcomer, you’ll get the right level of detail and responsibilities in every career.
