What are the new features coming in FIFA 22?
FIFA 22 will be one of the biggest releases by the company, and the development team has added a lot of new features to the game to make it more interesting for users. In this section, we will share all the new features which have been added to FIFA 22, and we have confirmed them from multiple sources.
Let’s start with Hypermotion, which is one of the major features of the new FIFA 22. The company showed off this feature in the official trailer, where we saw how it was used in 11v11 match situations.
Hypermotion is basically the state-of-the-art machine-learning algorithm that basically writes the new animations in real-time. The algorithm is capable of analyzing more than 8.7 million frames of the player moment, and then it uses it to create an animation in real-time, which gives a more natural feel to the animations and how players interact.
It’s the cutting edge technology that would require a lot of power which is why it’s currently only limited to PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Stadia Versions of the FIFA 22.
Goalkeepers in the previous versions of FIFA weren’t good, and the development team is finally addressing this issue. The reports have confirmed that the development team has been working on the Goalkeepers from the ground up, which means that the goalkeepers in FIFA 22 will be more reliable with more animation.
Improved Attacking Tactics
Another thing that has improved in the new FIFA 22 is the attacking tactics. The new FIFA 22 will allow you to use the different attacking tactics depending on the pitch area that has the ball. In this way, you will be able to play the game more effectively.
More Control over your Club
FIFA 22 will also offer more control over your Club, and now you will be able to create your own Club and become the very best. You will be able to pick the league, name, and rivals with your own choice.
On top of that, you will also get the option to pick your own home stadium and kits. You will also get the regular features such as colors of your choice, crown chants, anthems, goal songs, and more.
Improved Player Career Mode
There are also confirmed reports that the development team has improved the Player Career Mode. Now the new manager rating system is in place, which will track your overall progression and your standing in the team. The system will track your progress based on how many objectives you have met or missed through the game. It will also apply to international matches.
Similarly, the development team has also reworked the animated dressing room sequence and transfer negotiation animations.
New Player Growth System
There are also confirmed reports of a new Player Growth System. Now you will be able to earn XP and unlock skill points with the games. You will also be able to spend them on skill trees to enhance your attributes.
The new system also comes with perks that you can unlock as you progress, and you will be able to use them before the matches. You will also be able to boost the attributes such as chance creation, defensive cover, and attacking support.
Improved Women’s Football
There are also confirmed reports that the development team has added the first female commentator of the FIFA Series in the game. The company has picked the ex-England and Arsenal women’s team player, Alex Scott, who is also working as a TV Pundit these days. On top of that, now you will also be able to create your own Female Footballer and play within the “Pro Clubs Game” Mode.
Other Speculated Features
Apart from the confirmed features, there is also a number of other features which are being speculated in the community, and there are great chances that the new FIFA 22 might have them.
One of the most speculated features is the Passing Mechanics, and there are great speculations that the passing mechanics have been improved in the new FIFA 22. There are also reports that the development team has nerfed the Nutmegs, but it’s not yet being confirmed or denied by the development team.
Will FIFA 22 comes with VAR?
Video Assistant Referee (VAR) is one of the biggest changes in football, and it allows referees to assist them with their decision. Unfortunately, VAR was not part of FIFA 21, and there are great chances that it won’t be part of FIFA 22. Also, as it’s a digital game, there’s no need for VAR as the chance of error is almost none.
Who is the highest-rated player in the FIFA 22?
Currently, there is no information about the highest-rated player in FIFA 22. However, there are reports that Lionel Messi (PSG – Argentina) will be the highest-rated player. However, there are great chances that we might see some surprises as the other famous footballers such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski, Kylian Mbappe, and Erling Haaland have also performed pretty well in the last season.
