FIFA 23 Is Ready to Drop, and Fans Can’t Wait!

If you’re a FIFA fan eagerly waiting for the latest version of the soccer game, your wait might soon be over. The FIFA 23 web app is about to drop sooner than you think! This game has fans around the world brushing up their knowledge about players and stats, all because this is said to be the last game to be released under the FIFA name.

The Dates

FIFA 23 is all set to drop on September 30, as has been confirmed by EA Sports, the official partner of the game. People who pre-ordered the game already received the game, three days earlier than the launch. FIFA is known to drop its games in late September, and this is a time when every FIFA fan has excitement running through their veins.

The Latest Version

The latest version has the fans excited about a lot of things and features that have been hinted at. FIFA 23 will feature some elements of Crossplay, meaning people will be able to play across consoles, but only up to a limit. Another feature that’s been teased is hyper motion 2, a system that will slow machine learning to capture real-life moves from football matches, creating over 6,000 in-game animations. The update will also have over 30 license leagues and feature more than 19,000 players.

Some New Icons and Additions

This FIFA entry will be the first to feature women’s club soccer, with the introduction of Englands’s FA Women’s Super League and French Division 1 Feminine at the launch. 21 new heroes were also added to this feature including Jean-Pierre Papin, Rafael Marquez, and Harry Kewell. Juventus Stadium, home of the Juventus team, has also been added to the game since it was previously missing due to license issues. Now all that’s left to do is wait, and play some games!

Meet the Biggest Freshwater Fish in the World

Scientists recently caught the world’s largest freshwater fish in southern Cambodia’s Mekong River. The giant Mekong catfish (Pangasianodon Gigas) is thought to be one of the largest freshwater fish species in the world. Unfortunately, it’s been seriously overfished in recent years, leading scientists to fear that it might go extinct soon if Cambodian authorities don’t give it better protection.

Dimensions of the Stingray

The female giant freshwater stingray (Urogymnus Polylepis) weighed 300 kilograms (661 pounds) and measured 2.2 meters wide by 4 meters long (7 foot 2 inches by 13 feet 1 inch) from snout to stinger. After she was caught and her weight was recorded, she was proven to be the largest freshwater fish on record, beating the previous record of a Mekong giant catfish captured in 2005 that weighed 293 kilograms (645 pounds). When local fishermen notified the Wonders of Mekong research project about the catch, scientists on the team got in touch with the officials and biologists on site, grabbed the ray, tagged and measured it, and then let it go back into the Mekong River.

A Small Tracking Tag

A small, tag-like attachment was placed on the end of the ray’s tail with a small surgical incision. This will emit a series of sound waves back to 36 retrievers along the Mekong and other nearby rivers, enabling them to track the ray’s movements and migration. Big fish are endangered because if they’re caught before they mature, they cannot reproduce. This puts the entire species in jeopardy of dying out. If you kill all sizable freshwater fish in a particular body of water, you could be causing massive extinction. Giant catfish, sturgeon, and carp have already been decimated throughout Asia and North America because of overfishing or habitat destruction. However, seeing how big this particular fish is, scientists are still hopeful about the Mekong River and its habitats.
