share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

Many members of the FIFA community are buzzing for the arrival of FIFA 22, especially after the recent Ultimate Team reveal - detailing what's arriving in the mode at launch.

For some, they aren't convinced just yet - and will need a taste of the game to decide if it's worthwhile the £69.99 / $69.99 purchase.

Fortunately, the EA Play Trial can grant you access to 10 hours of gameplay, nine days before the game's official launch.

Not only that, but a special price is available.

Cheaper than chips

79p to test out FIFA 22 is an absolute steal - plus you can make a headstart in Ultimate Team as well.

Normally priced at £3.99 a month, you can pick up this deal on both Xbox and PlayStation consoles.

LET BATTLE COMMENCE - FIFA fever is about to take over

Xbox players can find the deal on the Microsoft stores on their consoles - or can add EA Play to their accounts right here.

It's a similar case for PlayStation players, but make sure you move for the "EA Play 1 Month Discount offer" as opposed to a one month subscription.

This will allow you 10 hours of gameplay from Wednesday, 22 September.

Additional bonus

Not only will EA Play get you an early taste of the game - but it will also make your actual purchase of FIFA 22 cheaper.

EA Play gets you 10% off game purhcases, meaning you can buy FIFA 22 for a more "reasonable" £62.99 / $62.99 (PS5 & Xbox Series X) or £52.99 / $52.99 (PS4 & Xbox One).

What to look out for

There's plenty on offer from FIFA 22 this year, and at first glance it looks as if EA has delivered a game fitting for Next Gen consoles.

Hypermotion Technology

The flagship arrival for FIFA 22 - expect the gameplay on Next Gen to be like something we've never seen before.

FEEL IT ALL - Hypermotion should give us the most realistic player movement yet

For the first time, EA has used 11 vs 11 motion capture - tracking the movement of all 22 players on the pitch - offering never seen before realism.

Expect defenders to now defend as a unit, whilst attackers will make more intelligent runs and strike the ball in a more realistic fashion.

Start from the bottom (or top)

Career Mode gets its biggest arrival perhaps ever - with the ability to create your club and commence your managerial journey.

FUT Fiesta

Many FIFA fans will plug straight into FIFA 22 Ultimate Team - and who can blame them with plenty on offer this year.

SCALE UP - Items rated under 80 OVR will be eligible for Featured TOTW cards

The weekly TOTW drop has been spiced up with the arrival of Featured TOTW items - which will continue to grow throughout FUT 22 so that they don't become unusable after a couple of months.

FUT Heroes arrive, with the likes of Joe Cole and David Ginola representing particular leagues - and it also looks like they will receive special items somewhere along the line.
