FIFA 22 is scheduled to release this October as EA’s latest and greatest entry into its wildly popular football simulation series yet. Capitalizing on new HyperMotion technology which allows the movements of real-life footballers to be expertly captured and translated in game, matches will play out more believably than ever before – all thanks to the power of next-gen consoles. This combines with other gameplay advancements to make FIFA 22’s debut on PS5 and Xbox Series X something worth being excited for.
French football sensation Kylian Mbappe once again graces the cover for FIFA 22, heading up a fully updated roster of players and teams from across most global leagues. FIFA 22 also sees the return of Ultimate Team, encouraging players on all platforms to build up and invest in their own fantasy football squad which they can then take online. The beautiful game will never have looked or played better than in EA’s FIFA 22.
FIFA 22 will be the first franchise instalment to be developed with the PS5 and Xbox Series X’s architecture in mind, presenting ball physics and rival team A.I. in such a way that feels incredibly realistic. Whether you’re competing against mates in an online friendly or working your way to the premiership in the all-new career mode, FIFA 22 offers players to engage with the beautiful game on a much deeper level. This is the most authentic football game yet.
Regular FIFA players will be aware that there are always multiple purchase options to consider. FIFA 22 streamlines it better this year, however, by giving players on all platforms the choice of FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition or Standard Edition. Those who go Ultimate will be able to play FIFA 22 early on September 27th, as well as in-game perks like extra FUT points and a Kylian Mbappe loan item.
EA has recorded the movements from 22 professional footballers using Xsens suits, all in the effort to accurately capture the high-intensity play. Such real-time human data makes playing 11vs11 matches more authentic than ever, informing AI, animations and ball physics with accurate machine learning HyperMotion technology.
