Riding on the back of the UEFA European Football Championship finals, EA released the official trailer for FIFA 22 just yesterday. The game will be landing in stores and on Origin and Steam on October 1.
FIFA 22 changes the way that clubs are managed with a Create A Club system. The game will also utilise HyperMotion technology, one of EA’s motion-capture software’s, meaning players will perform as they do on the pitch.
The cover star of FIFA 22 is Kylian Mbappé, striker for Paris Saint-Germain, for the second year running. Many details are yet to be released, but players can expect improvements and overhauls of Volta Football, Pro Clubs, Ultimate Team, and Career Mode.
“We’re still early in the transition to next-gen,” EA Sports explained, “and right now the team is focused on making the best, quality experience on new consoles before looking to upgrade other platforms.”
