When is Fifa 22 coming out?

It’ll be out after the latest Premier League season has begun.

How to watch FIFA 2 trailer
Most of the trailer is of real world footage showing players wearing special suits while kicking about.
This is to promote the game’s new feature – hypermotion.
The trailer can be found at the top of this article.
The one minute 40 second trailer can also be viewed on YouTube here.
What is new in FIFA 22
The game uses powerful new HyperMotion tech, which should make the game feel more realistic.
But details are still light at this stage.
However the trailer has given us a taste of what is to come.
And EA say IT will “deliver the most realistic, fluid and responsive football experience for next-gen consoles and Stadia.”
It will make improvements including Player Humanisation, Explosive Sprint, Full Team Authentic Motion, Kinetic Air Battles and more.
Career Mode Changes
EA have confirmed that some very big changes will be made in FIFA 22 Career Mode.
The biggest new features is ‘Create a Club’ with player making their own custom club.
EA said in a statement: “Live out your football dreams in FIFA 22 Career Mode as you create a club and lead them from relegation candidates to global giants.”
On their website EA said: “Volta Football mode is featured in the FIFA 22 video-game as a single player mode.
“VOLTA Football is a storyline mode in FIFA which focuses on street football and futsal where you can create your football character and improve your character by playing matches and skill games.”
EA Sports have revealed that they will be weakening the ability of full-backs when they are deployed as centre-backs in the 2022 version of the games.
There are two versions of Fifa 22 at present.
First up is the Standard Edition, which is the base game and nothing more.
But you can also spring for the pricier Ultimate Edition, with a four-day early access window, bonus FUT rewards and points.
Nintendo Switch players will also be able to get a Legacy Edition version of the game.
That means the game will be available to play on the console, but it’ll be running on the old engine – and not the new one.
