EA is investigating reports of some players being unable to connect to its servers amid the early access for FIFA 23.
FIFA 23 launched its early access period today for those who bought the Ultimate Edition.
But gamers are getting an error message that is preventing them from playing the game.
"The FUT service is currently experiencing a high volume of server traffic. Please try again later," the message reads.
EA addressed the servers going down, issuing a statement on Twitter.
"We are investigating reports of some players being unable to connect to EA Servers and will provide an update in this thread when available," the statement read.
