Latest News - Story Mode x Career Mode

Following three years of The Journey, a Story Mode continued in the FIFA titles over the last two years in Volta Football - but what about for FIFA 22?

Well, it looks like that Story Mode could be arriving in Career Mode.

This leak has come from @FUTZONECENTRAL, and perhaps would work in the same way that the Press Conferences and post-match interviews work currently, giving you options to speak to your players before the big game.

This has been a feature in the Pro Evo franchise since PES 2019's Master League, which has been immensely popular with fans.

FIFA 22 DEMO: Fans are already looking forward to the demo of EA's next title

Next Gen consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X are out now, although stock has been difficult to come by!

Any Demo for FIFA 22 should be available on all consoles by the time the new game comes around.

What we'd like to see from FIFA 22 on PS5

Here's our wishlist for FIFA 22 on the PlayStation 5.

Improved Defensive mechanism:

In FIFA 21, attacking and striking felt fantastic, offering perhaps some of the tightest gameplay we’ve ever seen in that area.

Unfortunately, the game’s defensive options left a lot to be desired. The system is more than showing its age at this point, and perhaps a full defensive overhaul should be on the cards for FIFA 22.

EA have made dispossessing attackers was much tougher than it needs to be, with groups of defenders struggling to handle a single attacking player.

Consequently, the improvements to attacking greatly overshadowed the stale defending mechanics, which often led to unbalanced matches.

Ultimate Team Adjustments:

Co-op functionality has been added to Ultimate Team, however, it is tied to the single player experience, which provides another avenue of imbalance, as solo players could very easily be matched up with more than one player acting as their opponent.

A fully dedicated co-op mode would work wonders here, so you know you're playing 2 vs 2.

It would be great if FIFA 22 allowed the use of co-op in FUT Champions, allowing casual players to enjoy their 30 Weekend League Games with friend.
