‘Draft Day Sports: College Football 2023’ The need to know on FirstAccess!

Wolverine Studios’ first release of the 2023 line is just around the corner. It’s college season in the DDS franchise and Draft Day Sports College Football 2023 has finally arrived in First Access.

College football is all about the rivalries. DDSCF23 will see if you have what it takes to beat your rivals into submission year after year? Wolverine Studios has you ready to recruit, gameplan and bring home victory to your school. Several images are not associated with the game studio. These are player created modifications and can be found in the DDSCF community.

The full version of the product will be available on August 26th, 2022.

What’s new in 2023?

Wording is courtesy of Wolverine Studios – One of the most important parts of college football of course is recruiting. Every season is a competition to see who can bring the most five star recruits to their program and to see who ends up being overrated and to see which teams have developed players who were not rated very highly and turned them into future pro draftees. The addition in the real world of players transferring at higher rates has changed the landscape of college football and we have made changes this season to mirror that as well in our recruiting feature.

We have added more recruiting periods to be able to handle additional transfers of players, we’ve changed the system to use dollars instead of points to allow for more immersion and we have added the ability for players to decommit in some situations to truly give you a realistic experience.

Big changes have also carried over to the field itself in this year’s version. We have updated the in game logic to allow defensive players to better cover movement in motion plays, we have new counter strategy options to allow you to gameplan even more specifically for your next opponent, there has been a revamp of depth chart packages, usage and weights to make things more intuitive and give you even greater control


We have worked hard to update the substitution logic giving you new choices over which players to use and when to use them when designing your packages. It all adds up to you being able to fine tune your strategy in even greater detail giving you the opportunity to truly build a team and plan that fits your vision.

One of the most fun and engaging new additions to the game is the addition of the Trophy Room. Now you can look at a glance and see all of your past bowl glories as well as awards your teams have racked up over time. There’s nothing like looking back and seeing just how awesome you have been! And if that trophy case looks a little empty to you then it is all the more encouragement to get to work to start filling it.

One of the most fun aspects of a simulation game like DDS: College Football 2023 is the ability to create your own game world. Our games have always thrived on having a massive amount of customizable options. One of the biggest debates in college football is the playoff system. Is a 4 team playoff enough? What would the college football universe look like if there was a 16 team playoff?

You get to make that call in DDS:CF23. Maybe you miss the good old days when the playoff didn’t exist. We’ve got an option for that too!

Finally, you will be able to link your league with the future Draft Day Sports: Pro Football 2023 for a totally immersive game universe. Bring rookies in from DDSCF and track your college universe without ever having to leave DDSPF.
