The FIFA soccer game series is one of the hottest games on all platforms. The new version is expected to bring a number of new features and updates with an improved gaming experience of course, so what’s new in FIFA 22? And what is expected of it?
EA has officially revealed the game’s official launch date, to be on October 1 in pre-booking, while more details will be revealed at EA’s Play Live 2021 event on July 22.
Information and leaks about FIFA 22
The first thing we learned about the new game was the player selected for the cover photo. The company has chosen France national team star Kylian Mbappe to be the cover star for the second year in a row.
Leaks about FIFA 22 are few, and no images from the game have appeared yet. But we knew from several leaks that the game will offer improvements, including “heat maps”, in contrast to the points method used in the current versions.
Heat maps will be very similar to what we see in real matches, and real targets will be highlighted during gameplay.
The leaks included information about changing the mechanics of passing between players. This may have an undesirable adverse effect if the gaming experience is significantly different from what the players are accustomed to.
New methods of dribbling have been added with improvements to the mechanism of defense lines, with significant improvements to the graphics, especially with the presence of the current generation PS5 and Xbox Series S | X.
So far, it is not known whether the game will include VAR in the gameplay experience or not. Some sources circulated the fact that the game will include a female commentator on matches for the first time, “Alex Scott”.
Copies of the game FIFA 22 and their prices
The company has officially announced pricing and availability details, and the game will come for the last generation of PS4 and Xbox One devices at a price of $60 as usual.
On the other hand, the Ultimate Edition will be available for last-generation devices at a price of $100! It is the version that will include the free upgrade for the current generation devices, unlike the version with a price of $60.
This Ultimate Edition will include the old and new generation versions, as mentioned above. Plus four days early access and FUT 21 premium items.
As for current generation owners, they will be able to purchase the game at a price of $70. It appears to us that owners of the old generation will not be able to upgrade for free to the new generation because the Ultimate Edition comes at such a high price.
