FIFA 22 Emerson Royal Objectives: How to unlock FUT Shapeshifters, Start & End Date

The Shapeshifters promo has taken over from Team of the Season in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, bringing a whole crop of brilliant new players to the game.

Player position changes are the main theme of the event, and more cards are arriving now in that vein.

The latest Shapeshifters objectives card was leaked and is now confirmed with a Brazilian star from the EPL set to be boosted.

Prolific leaker FUTSheriff had taken to Twitter to leak a brand new objectives card set to arrive with FUT Shapeshifters that's now confirmed.

Available for FREE and set to become an immediate community favourite, this Emerson Royal card could be absolutely dominant as we draw towards the end of the FIFA 22 cycle.

Objective Requirements

The requirements to unlock this new Shapeshifters Emerson Royal are as follows:

Once you've knocked out all four, you'll receive the new 93 OVR Shapeshifters card for Emerson Royal.


The Shapeshifters promo was first seen in FIFA 20, although it didn't reappear in FIFA 21, so we already knew what sort of mechanics to expect.

As always, the promo players will receive massive boosts, but they will also have their cards transformed, with changes coming to player positions, work rates, weak foot ability, and updated attributes to better suit their new position.

TRANSFORMED TALENT - New positions are the order of the day for this promo

A squad will be released into packs, with a couple of objective players made available when the event kicks off, as well as a few SBCs coming throughout the campaign.

Shapeshifters had two squad releases in FIFA 20, and EA are set to match and possibly exceed that, with leaks saying Team 3 is on the way, and Team 4 could also join!
