Madden 23: tips and tricks to dominate on the field
Josh Allen throwing a pass in Madden 23.

To honor the late, great John Madden, EA dedicated 2022’s edition of the perennial NFL video game franchise to -- perhaps -- the most important man to ever step onto the football field. Madden NFL 23 also makes several quality-of-life improvements to help turn the meandering series in the right direction.

Players have more visual cues in the passing game, giving them more control over their quarterback, and the defensive AI doesn’t get cooked on every crossing route -- though these boosts don’t mean anybody can pick up and play the game. With a few helpful Madden 23 tips and tricks, new players can get a better grip of how to succeed between the hash marks while returning players shake off the rust.

How to pre-order FIFA 23: retailers, editions, and bonuses

This might be the last FIFA game we get made by the talented team at EA, which has proven themselves to make one of the best soccer simulation games on the market. FIFA 23 will still be coming out this year after being officially revealed on July 20 with a first look at this impressive-looking title. Fans of the series won't need to see this trailer to know they will be picking up this game, though. If you already know you like the type of game FIFA has been, then FIFA 23 is a safe bet to invest in.

FIFA 23 will be a historic game, especially if it is the last one before a new development team takes the series going forward, but more importantly because of the cover athletes. Of course, EA will continue making soccer games under the name EA Sports FC, but fans of the league may not make the jump to that new entry that doesn't bear the FIFA name. To make the most out of your time with FIFA 23 when it comes out, and to celebrate some great athletes, here is how you can pre-order FIFA 23, every edition there is, plus which bonuses they come with.
