FIFA 23 has been released in Early Access, with a full release right around the corner. And while bugs are nothing new to the FIFA franchise, there is one particular issue that is causing trouble for many players. Namely, when players try to begin their 10 hour Early Access Trial, they instead get the following message: “In order to access online features for this title you must be signed in to Xbox Network and you must be signed in to the EA Server”. This is then followed by: “There was a problem validating your EA play subscription status, please try again.” So what’s this problem about, and is there anything you can do to fix the Can’t Validate EA Play Subscriptions problem in FIFA 23? Luckily, there is, and we have the fix right here.

Currently, it seems like this issue is affecting primarily Xbox players, though this problem could be present on other gaming platforms as well. In any case, here’s how to resolve this.
