‘Fifa 22’ latest update aims to address career mode issues

A new party game has also been added to the Volta Arcade rotation

EA has released the third major update for Fifa 22 that seems to address the game’s career mode progression issues.

Update 1.14, which was released last week (November 4) for PC but is now available on consoles, has introduced the Bucket Ball party game to the Volta Arcade rotation. The goal of this game is to score as many points as possible by lobbing balls into the opposing team’s bucket before the timer runs out.

In addition, the update features a fix to the Career Mode progression issue which saw players lose their previous play sessions depending on how the mode was exited.

  • Addressed some instances of an initializing message sometimes appearing when attempting to matchmake in Division Rivals, and no matches being found. We will continue to monitor this going forward.

Gameplay – Addressed the following issues.
