Dynamic Gameday

EA has revealed some exciting new features for Madden 22, and these could be incredible if they translate into FIFA 22 as well!

'Dynamic Gameday' is one of the key features that could improve the FIFA 22 gameplay next season with several elements added to enhance user experience.

Dynamic Gameday is the overall term given to cover three new features that EA has added into Madden 22 for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

  • Gameday Atmosphere
  • Gameday Momentum
  • Next Gen Stats: Star-Driven AI

Gameday Atmosphere

One of the new features to bring you a more immersive gameday experience is an improvement to the Gameday Atmosphere.

Connect you to your NFL fandom from the sidelines to the seats in ways that enhance and impact every game with Gameday Atmosphere.

Plus, new on-field reactions and player personas add intensity to the drama during pressure moments.

This looks like extra emotion will feature in the game, bringing with it passion and a unique playing experience in each match.

Gameday Momentum

Swing the game your way and capitalise when you are on top with the new Gameday Momentum.

Gameday Momentum is a new mechanic that lets you feel the highs and lows of momentum swings of each game with environment-based Gameday Conditions for every type of atmosphere; and feel the pressure of gameday with a new gameday momentum meter and its perks known as M-Factors that can rattle your opponent when it matters most.

MAKE THE MOST OF IT - You may need to score while you are on top
Every NFL stadium in Madden NFL 22 features a unique Home Field Advantage M-Factor that, when triggered, can unlock a special boost created specifically for each NFL Teams’ environment and history.

The momentum works both ways though, so you may have to adjust your tactics when you are feeling the pressure!

Next Gen Stats: Star-Driven AI

The third and final element of the new Madden 22 Dynamic Gameday is powered by real-life.

NFL superstars and the unique personalities of each team are more true-to-life with Next Gen Stats: Star-Driven AI changing AI behavior and team tendencies backed by real world data.

HEARD IT BEFORE - EA has already said AI teams will play to their strengths
As you build your game plan through each game, Next Gen Stats will seamlessly provide information about your opponent’s tendencies to help you play smarter, make clear strategic choices and make halftime adjustments when your team needs a lift.

This is arguably the aspect we are most excited to see in FIFA 22 (hopefully) as it could mean that teams show their personality on the pitch.


Similar to FIFA Career Mode is Madden's Franchise Mode, and it looks like EA are focusing on bringing us more control as we develop.

Madden NFL 22 delivers highly-requested updates to Franchise that make you feel more connected and in control of your team with more detailed staff management and skill tree progression systems and comprehensive weekly game strategy that integrates into your play-calling and gameday planning.

WONDERKIDS - Could we control how our prodigies improve

We have seen skill tree progression systems in Pro Clubs already, but we would love to see it in Career Mode to bring that extra level of control over your players.

"Detailed staff management" is also a new feature we would be keen to have added in FIFA Career Mode as you can shape the club to fit your footballing ideologies.

It looks like we could have some storylines built into the game this year too as "new scenarios keep the mode fresh".
