How does the AcceleRATE feature work in FIFA 23

Many players with similar speeds might move differently, depending on their height and agility. As briefly mentioned above, AcceleRATE is a player movement system that divides players into three main acceleration archetypes—Controlled, Explosive, and Lengthy. This feature aims to bring more realism and gameplay options by assigning players to one of the three archetypes based on their agility, strength, and height. That said, acceleration and sprint speed will remain the primary factors for determining a player's overall speed.

All Acceleration Types in FIFA 23

The AcceleRATE feature assigns players to one of three acceleration archetypes based on a combination of their height, strength, and agility. The following are all three acceleration types in FIFA 23.

  • Controlled - The Controlled acceleration type will be assigned to most players in FIFA 23. This acceleration type stands for players with uniform and controlled acceleration.
  • Explosive - This acceleration type will focus mainly on wingers and midfielders. Players assigned to the Explosive archetype will be of smaller height with high acceleration stats. These players excel in explosive speed, which will help them to run past defenders quickly and make incisive passes.
  • Lengthy - The Lengthy archetype will be assigned to tall and strong players. Due to their bigger stature, these players lack the explosive speed of midfielders. However, owing to their height, they can cover ground faster once they are up to speed.

How are Acceleration Types assigned in FIFA 23

Players will be automatically assigned to one of the three acceleration types based on their agility, strength, and height combination. The following are the stat requirements that players need to meet to be assigned to one of the acceleration types in FIFA 23.
