By Luke Delaney Updated

With just over six weeks until the release of FIFA 23, excitement is starting to build around the gaming community. With a host of new features and improved physics and game mechanics being promised by EA Sports, FIFA 23 could potentially be one of the best editions so far.

Changes to chemistry styles in Ultimate Team and new additions to Career Mode will likely make for a new gaming experiences with improvements desperately need from previous editions of the game.

One thing that has caught the eye of many people on social media is the new tackling techniques brought into FIFA 23. The 'leg breaker' tackle will be avaialble for users to bring into the game, with many suggesting that it will be hugely popular in Pro Clubs.

FIFA Youtuber JCC leaked this footage of the game on Twitter.

You can use this type of tackle by pressing R1 and O on Playstation or RB and X on XBOX. As you can see Messi goes straight through the back of Fabinho in the clip, a tackle worthy of a red card.

But as JCC says in his tweet, it's likely that this will be used a huge amount in Pro Clubs and during other feisty games on FIFA 23.


Other changes to tackling on FIFA

FIFA 23 has changed a lot from the defensive and tackling point of view, with a whole range of new tackling techniques at your disposal. As well as the leg breaker tackle, a backheel tackle has also been introduced.

Slide tackles have no become part of an Active Touch system with increased responsiveness, leading to more realtistic and better tackling outcomes. Stand tackles will often put the defending player's body in front of the attacker when winning the ball, while tackles will also leave marks on the pitch.

There will be no more glitching tackles after being dispossessed of the ball while users will also be able to sheild the ball out of play as it runs towards the endline.


There's huge potential for FIFA 23 to go down as one of the best made by EA Sports and if these updated defensive techniques work out as good as they sound, we will be in for a treat.
