As ever, there will be several different ways to get your hands on the game early.

If you are an Ultimate Team fan, then the FUT Web & Companion App is usually released before the full game and allows you to take charge of your club early.

Other ways of getting early access to FIFA 22 include pre-orders, demo, beta testing, and buying certain editions of the game.

This will be the first FIFA game specifically optimized for the next-gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

We can’t wait for the new game to arrive, and we have already been treated to some of the ‘next level’ graphics.

Demo

There was no demo for FIFA 21, but we expect a demo to be released ahead of FIFA 22.

While the demo is rarely anything like the full game, it can still give an idea of the gameplay and graphics.

There will likely be a handful of teams available to use, usually made up from official partners of the game.

Editions

FIFA 21 had the Standard, Champions and Ultimate editions all coming with their own prices and perks.

However, it looks like we could have just two editions this time around with the Champions Edition excluded.
