EA Sports has given FIFA 22 an October 1 release date on all platforms.
The upcoming football sim will be available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and even Google Stadia.
In addition to unveiling FIFA 22 and announcing the release date, EA Sports has also confirmed the price.
And it’s bad news if you want the next-gen version, because the game will be more expensive on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
The digital version of FIFA 22 is priced at £69.99 on both PS5 and Xbox Series X. That’s from the official Xbox Store and PSN.
On the plus side, the game will be available at the discounted price of £62.99 for EA Play members.
It’s cheaper on PS4 and Xbox One, where FIFA 22 is priced at £59.99, or £53.99 with EA Play.
Physical copies are cheaper at GAME, where the Standard Edition is priced at £54.99 for PS4 and Xbox One, or £64.99 for PS5 and Xbox Series X.
At the time of writing, Amazon is more expensive than GAME, where copies are priced at £59.99 for PS4 and Xbox One, or £69.99 for PS5 and Xbox Series X.
As a reminder, the Standard Edition comes with the core game, as well as one or two key benefits.
This includes a TOTW 1 Player, Kylian Mbappe Loan Item, FUT Ambassador Loan Player Pick, and a Career Mode Homegrown Talent perk.
The Ultimate Edition, meanwhile, includes FUT Heroes Player item, Ones to Watch Player item, free Xbox Series X|S upgrade, 4600 FIFA Points, Team of the Week 1 Player item, Kylian Mbappe Loan item, FUT Ambassador Loan Player Pick, and a Career Mode Homegrown Talent perk.
As an added bonus, Ultimate Edition pre-order customers will also get early access to the game.
This means you can start playing FIFA 22 on September 27, instead of October 1.
According to the reveal trailer, FIFA 22 will be powered by HyperMotion Technology.
“Powered by HyperMotion, FIFA 22 combines Advanced 11v11 Match Capture and proprietary machine learning technology to deliver the most realistic, fluid and responsive football experience for next-gen consoles and Stadia, unlocking the raw emotion, passion and physicality of the world’s game,” EA explains.
“HyperMotion technology enabled the integration of the first-ever motion capture of 22 professional footballers playing at high intensity. Additionally, EA’s proprietary machine learning algorithm learns from more than 8.7 million frames of advanced match capture, then writes new animations in real time to create organic football movement across a variety of interactions on the pitch.”
As you can tell by some of the pre-order bonuses, Kylian Mbappe will return as the cover star.
More details will be revealed during the EA Play event later this month.
