EA Sports Mobile is the next installment of FIFA Mobile 23. FIFA Mobile users, however, will be able to switch to the new game by installing an update. If you are already a FIFA Mobile player, there is no need to install EA Sports Mobile separately.
EA FC Mobile Cover Star
— Vini Jr. (@vinijr) August 7, 2023
Real Madrid star Vinícius Júnior will be the cover star of EA FC Mobile. This is most likely an indication of his significant presence in the game's menus, given that the game's mobile format doesn't involve a traditional ‘cover.'
“I’m excited to be featured as the cover star for EA Sports FC Mobile and look forward to sharing this excitement with fans worldwide,” Viní Jr. said in a statement.
“Football is more than just a sport, and to play a part in inviting more people into this celebration is a dream,” the Brazil international added.
This announcement quickly led to differing opinions among the members of the EA FC Mobile community. Some support Vini Jr's selection as the EA FC Mobile cover star, seeing it as a well-deserved recognition for the Brazilian athlete. Another group, however, argues that a different star should have been chosen for the cover.
It was widely anticipated that Erling Haaland, who graces the cover of EA FC 24, would also be chosen for the cover of the mobile version. This wouldn't have been unexpected, given the precedent set by previous editions where Kylian Mbappe represented the franchise on both the main title and the mobile release of FIFA.

EA Sports has introduced the following Impact Controls in EA Sports FC Mobile:
- Power Shot: Let loose a formidable strike that leaves goalkeepers grasping at thin air. Charge your shot while you find room to fully exploit the Power Shot's capabilities. Navigate the delicate balance of risk and reward with the Power Shot to dismantle your opponent and seize the lead.
- Knock On Dribble: Launch your fleet-footed dribblers into rapid motion by gently pushing the ball forward into open space. Exploit your opposition's high defensive line by surging forward with your swift attackers.
- Hard Tackle: Impose your presence and establish supremacy in both defense and midfield by unleashing a robust stand tackle. Effectively strip your opponent's attackers of the ball or execute a crucial, last-resort block using the newly integrated Hard Tackles.
