Next-Gen consoles will transform EA's football sim

With EA's next popular football sim now on the horizon, we take a look at what you can expect from FIFA 22 on PS5.

Does FIFA 22 carry over to PS5?

The official release of FIFA 22 has not yet been confirmed by EA, but we can have a pretty accurate guess as to whether FIFA 22 will carry over to PS5 from PS4.

Dual entitlement was a new introduction to the series along with FIFA 21, in order to ease the switch from previous to Next-Gen consoles.

Essentially, it means that if you buy the game on PS4 or Xbox One, you're also buying it on PS5 and Xbox Series X.

Is FIFA 22 on PS5 better?

FIFA 22 will definitely be coming to PS5, so we take a look at the changes which EA could make to the football sim on Next-Gen consoles.

FIFA 22 on PlayStation 5 could bring a wider scope of player likenesses in-game.

This would see a greater share of players add their likenesses to FIFA 22 - not just the very best players, but a larger selection of recognisable players from more modest clubs would be a welcome addition for supporters of them.

A full defensive overhaul could be on the cards for FIFA 22 on PS5.

The improvements to attacking in FIFA 21 greatly overshadowed the stale defending mechanics, which often led to unbalanced matches.

FIFA 22 on PS5 will hopefully bring balance between attacking and defensive mechanisms which will result in more balanced gameplay.
