Electronic Arts unveiled the Apple TV+ additions of Ted Lasso, Coach Beard, and other stars such as Jamie Tartt, Dani Rojas, Sam Obisanya, Roy Kent, and Isaac McAdoo. The team will be available on September 30, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia.

Unfortunately, the FIFA franchise isn't available on Apple operating systems.






Players can choose Ted Lasso as a playable manager in Career Mode or manage AFC Richmond by swapping them into the Premier League or any other playable Career Mode league.

AFC Richmond will be playable across Career Mode, Kick-Off, Online Friendlies, and Online Seasons, including The Greyhounds' Nelson Road home stadium.

In FIFA 23 Ultimate Team, players will have customization items such as authentic kits and select Ted Lasso or Coach Beard as a club manager. Additionally, all AFC Richmond content will be available through objectives and challenges.

Ted Lasso is an American sports comedy series on Apple TV+ developed by Jason Sudeikis, Bill Lawrence, Brendan Hunt, and Joe Kelly. The series follows Ted Lasso, an American college football coach hired to coach an English football team.

    Left out, unless you count being able to stream the game from all of the platforms it is available on to your Mac (and in some cases iPhone).

    Even the most powerful GPUs available for the Mac (excepting the Mac Pro) would only render at potato quality for a game like FIFA23, so streaming is, as always, the best gaming solution available for Apple users.

    FIFA 23 is the last installment of the series. EA didn't want to renew the license with FIFA and is moving on to something called EA Sports FC.

    Fifa 22 plays at maximum on low-end GPUs, Fifa 23 system requirements aren't much higher. Fifa 22 runs at 40-60FPS on 720p low in Parallels on the M1 Max:



    A native Fifa would run at 1080p ultra quality above 60FPS on all M1 Macs.

    This is one of those games that people play for long periods of time, a few reviewers have over 3000 hours:

    This would make it a good addition to Apple Arcade. It would probably sell under 2 million copies on Mac though so Apple would have to offer an incentive. It could pay off, $5/month x 2 million x 12 = $120m/year.
