Who is on the cover of FIFA 22 released ?
Kylian Mbappe has been confirmed as the cover star of FIFA 22.
Honoured to welcome back @KMbappe
The #FIFA22 cover star 🌟
— EA SPORTS FIFA (@EASPORTSFIFA) July 9, 2021
The France and Paris Saint-Germain star was the face of FIFA 21 and will continue in the new edition after it was confirmed by EA Sports on July 9.
In previous years, Eden Hazard, Virgil van Dijk, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Kevin De Bruyne and Paulo Dybala have also appeared on the game cover.
Konami’s deal with Juventus means Ronaldo will not return to the cover of FIFA for the foreseeable future.
Who are the FIFA 22 top rated players?
Lionel Messi is likely to be the highest-rated player in FIFA 22 again as he is currently the only 93-rated player in the live database.
Two players currently have a 92 rating: Cristiano Ronaldo and Robert Lewandowski.
Jan Oblak, Kevin De Bruyne and Neymar are all rated 91 overall, while Kylian Mbappe has the highest potential of any player in the game at the moment with a current rating of 90 and a potential rating of 95.
What new features will FIFA 22 have?
Next Gen FIFA 22 released
The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of FIFA 22 include “groundbreaking new HyperMotion gameplay technology.”
This uses advanced 11 vs 11 match capture, a first for FIFA, which means player and ball movement will be much more dynamic than ever before and better replicate real-life situations.
FIFA 22 includes over 4,000 new animations “to raise the footballing intensity, responsiveness, and physicality of every player in the game.”
Gameplay FIFA 22 released
Each year, EA Sports adds new gameplay improvements on top of the graphic changes.
FIFA 22 will see HyperMotion technology added to the PS5 and Xbox Series X editions, with ‘Tactical AI’ improvements in store as well.
Other gameplay improvements include Kinetic Air Battles, Composed Ball Control and increased humanisation.
Career Mode is one of the main parts of the game which gamers want to see updated.
FIFA 21 added the ‘Quick Sim’ option where you could jump in and out of matches, while the Active Training System made player development much more dynamic.
Improved AI and transfer options also made the game more lifelike, but there are still demands for further improvements in FIFA 22.
Fans have speculated about the addition of an Online Career Mode, but there has been no official confirmation of this yet.
Ultimate Team FIFA 22 released
The last few months of FIFA 21 Ultimate Team saw the addition of preview packs which allowed gamers to see the contents of packs before buying them on the store.
This is thought to take away the gambling aspect of Ultimate Team and make Store purchases more like downloadable in-game purchases than a game of chance, and thus avoid gambling legislation in certain countries.
As a result, there is a good chance these preview packs will be kept as a gameplay element in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.
There were over 100 icons in the last edition of FIFA and more should be added to FIFA 22.
A good indicator of which icons will be added is the list of legendary players from FIFA Online.
The following players have recently been added to FIFA Online 4 and therefore could be added to FIFA 22:
- Gabriel Batistuta
- Robin van Persie
- Park Ji-Sung
- Jaap Stam
- Cha Bum-kun
- Diego Forlan
- Wesley Sneidjer
- Iker Casillas
As well as these, new FUT Heroes have been added with “unique league-specific chemistry which is tied to their specific hero moment, providing a green Club link to any player within the same league as well as the usual nation link, giving you new ways to build your dream squad and recreate some of football’s most famous moments in FUT 22.”
So far, players such as Jorge Campos, Diego Milito, Mario Gomez and Robbie Keane have been confirmed as FUT Heroes.
FIFA’s street football mode Volta has had continual updates such as players, clothing and items during the year and these will continue in FIFA 22.
New players, stadiums, locations and merchandise will be added for FIFA 22 as well as a new story mode.
The introduction of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) is the biggest change to football in the modern era, with contentious decisions and moments now up for review.
Despite first being rolled out in 2017, VAR was not feature of FIFA 21 , and this is likely to continue with FIFA 22.
Since FIFA 20 Juventus are known as Piemonte Calcio , and EA Sports has lost more licenses to Pro Evolution Soccer in recent years.
PES recently acquired the license to Serie A side Atalanta, meaning EA Sports will not be able to use their proper name for the next three years, starting with FIFA 22.
Napoli and Roma have also signed exclusive deals with PES, which will surely disappoint fans of these Italian clubs.
EA Sports revealed in August that female pros can be created on FIFA 22, with the update coming to the Pro Clubs game mode.
As well as that, Player Growth will be improved and Player Archetypes will also be part of the new game.
