EA Sports’ FIFA 22 Preview

With exactly one month until release here is our preview of EA Sports’ FIFA 22. Scheduled for release on 1st October it will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch. Here’s what we know about the game and what you can expect from EA’s latest FIFA title.


FIFA 22 New Features

Improved Computer AI & Goalkeepers

The way the computer adjusts to your play-style and tactics has been improved this year, which should provide more of a challenge, even on easier settings. Goalkeeper physics and mechanics have also been rebuilt from the ground up, so they should now look and play more authentically, with each ‘keeper having their own personalities, meaning they react differently in pressurised situations.


FIFA 22 Create A Club Mode

This new mode looks very exciting, as it allows you to create your very own club. You can choose to start in any league and your experience will depend on the star rating you give your team and the size of budget you decide to give yourself. If you give your team a high rating you can expect to have high expectations from the board, but if you chose to start with a lower rating you won’t be expected to perform as favourably. You can chose everything from your stadium, your team name, fiercest rivals, even down the songs/chants that the crowd sing. This mode could provide hours of enjoyment, with the countless possibilities available, based on your chosen starting point.



Only available on the next-gen versions of the game, Hypermotion takes motion capture to the next level. Instead of just recording a few players wearing motion-capture suits, EA have captured over 8.7 million frames from players in 11v11 matches. Hypermotion is essentially a self-learning algorithm that adjusts and writes new animations in real time. You can learn more about Hypermotion here but it will make playing FIFA 22 even more realistic and authentic. EA have added over 4000 new animations to the game.


Player Career Mode Enhancements

EA have changed the management rating system this year and it now tracks your progression based on objectives set out during the game. New dressing room animations have been included and improvements have also been made to transfer negotiation animations. In Player Career there is also a player growth system that allows you to spend XP that you earn through playing matches on a skill tree to improve your player. These can also unlock perks that can be utilised in matches.


Women’s Football

It has been confirmed that Ex-England and Arsenal defender, Alex Scott, will become the first ever female commentator in FIFA 22. You will also be able to create a female player and play as them in the Pro Clubs mode.


Same Cover Star

You have probably already seen that Kylian Mbappe is once again the cover star for this year’s edition of the game. He is only the third ever player to be given such an honour. The other two players to have been chosen to be the cover star in consecutive years are Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
