Changes to ball physics, goalkeepers and tactics are just the tip of the iceberg in what looks to be the best FIFA ever.

New Attacking Tactics

While the Tactical AI will see a noticeable change in your defensive unit, you will now have more control over your attacking players too!

SMART RUNS - Players will make more intelligent runs
"Set up your team with different styles in each half of the pitch with new attacking tactics that give you more control over how you play in FIFA 22: keep the ball in your half and explode into attack with fast build up in the opponent’s, play direct from box to box, or line up in your own unique style."

Players will make up to 6 times as many decisions per second than in the last game!

Goalkeeper Rewrite

Fed up of being let down by your goalkeeper? Well, fear not as the new goalkeeper rewrite should produce more reliable keepers!

"A brand new goalkeeper system brings a new level of intelligence to the last line of defence, unlocking more reliable shot-stopping and smarter decision-making between the posts.
Goalkeeper positioning personality replicates the different styles of keepers throughout the game - to represent the lightning-fast reflexes of world-class shot stoppers."

True Ball Physics

It feels like EA has done this before, but it looks like ball behaviour will be more realistic than ever in FIFA 22.

PINPOINT - Lofted passes will be a joy to behold
"Real-world data imported into FIFA 22 takes the game’s ball physics to a new level of realism.
Tuned parameters including speed, swerve, air drag, air resistance, ground friction, and rolling friction mean every touch, trap, shot, volley, pass, and dribble will look, move, and fly like the real thing."

Explosive Sprint

We have been promised that this won't be OP in FIFA 22, but we will believe that when we see it!

SPEED - Burst past your opponents with the new Explosive Sprint mechanic
"A new gameplay mechanic that changes the dynamic of one-on-one situations, Explosive Sprint gives you more control over acceleration when dribbling or defending.
Lure opponents in and choose when to unleash your full speed to get away from the defender as you drive your team forward in attack."
