EA Sports FC - Can PS4 and PS5 users play together?

Speculation surrounding EA's new game, EA Sports FC has been rife ever since the split away from FIFA was announced.

Plenty of questions have arisen amongst the community regarding the new game's platforms and crossplay. So, we're here to help.

Find out whether PlayStation players on different generations of consoles will be able to play together in EA Sports FC below.

Can PS4 and PS5 users play together?

First of all, it's important to understand that nothing has been officially confirmed for EA's new title, EA Sports FC.

We can only speculate on platforms and crossplay options by judging from previous editions.

From what we understand, EA Sports FC will be made available on previous-generation consoles, including the PlayStation 4.

It will be possible for PS4 and PS5 players to play EA Sports FC together, however, it is a little more complicated than that.

NEW LEVELS - The PlayStation 5 takes console gaming to new heights

There will likely be no crossplay between the PS5 version and the PS4 version of EA Sports FC.

So, if you have a PS5 and you want to play the game with your PS4 friends, you'll need to purchase the PS4 version of the game.

This does not work the other way around - PS4 users cannot play the PS5 version of EA Sports FC on their PlayStation 4.

The smart choice

Last year, EA made an Ultimate Edition of FIFA 23 available to purchase which came with several unique bonuses.

One of these bonuses is being granted access to both the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game, allowing you to switch between the two with ease on the same account or console.

PREMIUM OPTION - The Ultimate Edition comes with plenty of in-game add ons

All you need to do to switch between the two versions is press options on the game and then under 'game version' change to whichever one you like.

We expect an Ultimate Edition of EA Sports FC to be made available, giving you similar unique bonuses.

So, if you've got a Next-Gen console but want to link up with your friends who haven't managed to secure one yet, the Ultimate Edition is for you.
