If you want to play FIFA 22 early, you’re in luck; Today, EA announced the dates for early access to its long running soccer series. Starting next week, players can play FIFA 22 for 10 hours if they have access to an EA Play subscription. If you do not have one but want one, you can sign up here.
Starting September 22, players will be able to play FIFA 22 for 10 hours. EA has allowed players to do this with some of its big releases like Madden and UFC. FIFA 22 drops officially on October 1, 2021, for PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
Here is a recap of what players can expect during the 10-hour early access.
A FIFA 22 Recap
One of the ways EA wants to change FIFA on next-gen consoles is to use Hypermotion Technology as its base. EA used data from real footballers to influence its Hypermotion technology. EA says the technology results in more emotions, animations, and fluid gameplay. Over 4000 animations were added to the game to ensure next-gen fluidity.
Career mode saw a massive overhaul, allowing players to have more customizability. FIFA 22 has objectives tailored to your position, quality of the opponent, and formation. Player growth is also a feature that makes the career mode of FIFA 22 more personable than before.
One of the main staples of any EA franchise is its Ultimate Team. FUT returns with more customization options. Players can now customize tifos, badges, banners, and more to show off their unique club. FUT Champions has been re-worked as a two-tier competition, where players can qualify for the FUT play-offs during the week and have a chance for the FUT Finals during the weekend.
Volta Football Returns
This is the third year Volta has been included in FIFA. This year, EA says Volta is getting its biggest improvement yet. Volta Football introduces a new skill meter that rewards players for pulling off a skill move in matches. It’s similar to EA Big’s “Game Breaker” mechanic; however, instead of your player getting a boost, players will gain more points towards scoring a goal.
