EA isn’t just giving up Madden NFL gamers an update will play on next-generation consoles. The publisher has svilatu FIFA 22, and its central place is a new “HyperMotion” system that provides more realistic animation and gameplay when you play on a PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X./S or Google Stage. The technology adopts machine learning to produce real-time animations, leading to a more “organic” movement. HyperMotion has also allowed EA to capture the movement for pro football (aka football) players in full-tilt competition, including superstars like Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappé.
The game also comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC (via Origin and Steam). A FIFA 22 Legacy Edition comes to the Nintendo Switch, although EA has not explained the differences.
Fortunately, there are other substantial changes regardless of which platform you use. EA hinted at a “complete” overhaul of the goalkeeping system, a new experience of creating clubs in Career Mode, “reinvented” Volta Calcio and a set of FIFA Ultimate Team Heroes elements that represent the stories of legendary players.
FIFA 22 will be released on October 1 for all supported platforms.
As with Madden, it is apparent EA is not completely ready to abandon support for previous generation consoles. This is not surprising considering both the larger player base and the scarcity that limits the number of PS5 and Xbox Series owners. However, it’s clear that the gaming giant wants to offer a strong incentive to play on newer machines. Don’t be surprised if you do FIFA 23 cut PS4 and Xbox One players.
