Electronic Arts is doubling down its focus on FIFA 22’s gameplay. Last week, we got a full breakdown of FIFA’s new Hypermotion technology, this new system serves as the base of FIFA 22. EA’s ambition for Hypermotion is to bring FIFA into the next generation of consoles with an overhaul of existing features, and a couple of new additions. To explain these new additions, we got a new trailer, and patch notes that outline FIFA 22’s gameplay details.
The gameplay trailer we got this time was a condensed version of the breakdown we got last week. More information on how Hypermotion helps FIFA 22’s gameplay be more authentic and realistic. EA calls Hypermotion and machine learning “the biggest animation refresh in FIFA history”, with 4000 new animations added to the game.
While Hypermotion is the groundwork of the gameplay, machine learning helps individual players have more control on the pitch. EA says machine learning translates “8.7 million frames of match capture data into responsive animation”. This is all thanks to 11v11 motion capture that has fueled Hypermotion and machine learning.
