FIFA 22 announced
Next-gen versions of the annual sports game built on HyperMotion technology
Electronic Arts has announced FIFA 22, coming on October 1 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC via Origin and Steam, Stadia, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. There will also be a Legacy Edition on Nintendo Switch.
On next-gen consoles, the new HyperMotion technology enabled the integration of the first-ever motion capture of 22 professional footballers playing at high intensity. Additionally, EA’s proprietary machine learning algorithm learns from more than 8.7 million frames of advanced match capture, then writes new animations in real time to create organic football movement across a variety of interactions on the pitch.
On next-gen and last-gen consoles, the new game also offers new features across other parts of gameplay and the most popular modes including Career Mode, VOLTA FOOTBALL, Pro Clubs and FIFA Ultimate Team. Fans can expect more consistency and distinct personalities between the posts with a complete goalkeeper system rebuild, an all-new Create a Club experience in Career Mode, reimagined gameplay in VOLTA FOOTBALL, and the introduction of FIFA Ultimate Team Heroes.
Paris Saint-Germain striker and global football icon Kylian Mbappé graces the cover for the second year in a row, making him one of few to earn back-to-back cover star status, alongside others like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
With 17,000+ players across 700+ teams in more than 90 stadiums and over 30 leagues, FIFA 22 also includes the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, brand new UEFA Europa Conference League, Premier League, Bundesliga, LaLiga Santander, CONMEBOL Libertadores and CONMEBOL Sudamericana.
FIFA 22 is developed by EA Vancouver and EA Romania and is available worldwide October 1, 2021.
