Player 2 has entered the game

Next Gen consoles have been out for a few months now, but FIFA 22 will be the first in the series that will be optimised for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

This makes for higher expectations for the game this year, but what can we expect?

We look at all the news, clues and predictions ahead of FIFA 22, and whether it will live up to the hype.

Latest - Pro Clubs revamp

We are expecting FIFA 22 to be incredible this year, and Pro Clubs is one of the game modes we are most excited about.

EA added some extra custom options on FIFA 21, but we want more from a mode that promises so much.

We have high hopes for the game mode, especially given its year-round success.

Find out all about FIFA 22 Pro Clubs.

Release Date

Unsurprisingly there has been no word on when FIFA 22 will officially be released, but we can have a pretty accurate guess.

FIFA 22 will likely be released between Friday, 24 September and Friday, 8 October, 2021, judging by the release in previous years.

PS5 & Xbox Series X

By the time FIFA 22 is released, many of us will be playing on Next Gen consoles... hopefully.

FIFA 21 on Next Gen consoles includes incredibly fast loading times, and immersive stadium atmospheres, but what could FIFA 22 look like on Next Gen?

FIFA 22 on PS5 and Xbox Series X could bring us the most realistic esports game ever.

With enhanced graphics and meticulous attention to detail, will we even know the difference between FIFA and real life football?

Cover Stars

This years star Kylian Mbappe looks set to continue for now, but could we see various editions change from this year?

Liverpool golden boy, Trent-Alexander Arnold could be one man to feature next season.

LIVERPOOL LAD: Could we see Trent as the Cover Star of FIFA 22?

The local wonderkid has already won a Champions League and a Premier League, at the age of just 21.

Plus, Liverpool's long term partnership with EA may increase Trent's chances of featuring as the FIFA 22 poster boy.

New Features

FIFA 22 will definitely bring us brand new features, so what can we expect to see?

2022 FIFA World Cup

2022 will see Qatar host the World Cup, it will be the first World Cup ever to be held in the Middle East - and be the first to take place in the winter.

EA is set to create a World Cup game mode in FIFA 22, as they did in FIFA 18, however could we see a different style of game mode?

ALLEZ LES BLEUS: Could France retain the World Cup in 2022?

We could see the first online World Cup Tournament mode in FIFA 22.

This would allow you to play with any nation against other online opponents, and compete for the ultimate prize in football.

It is worth remembering that the World Cup won't take place until late November 2022 - so would in fact make more sense if it arrived on FIFA 23.

New ICONs

FIFA 22 should also bring us a few new ICONs to use on Ultimate Team.

Andres Iniesta and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, for example, could end their careers at the end of this campaign and will almost definitely be approached by EA.

See who we think could be added to the ICON roster here.

We would love to be able to use these players offline too, or even add them into Career Mode!

The Journey Returns?

As of now, The Journey has been excluded from FIFA 21, so could we see it back next year?

A brand new set of characters and personalities, along with a change of environment could bring excitement back to the game mode.

Or could Hunter and Williams return in some capacity in FIFA 22, to satisfy those who fell in love with the characters?

New Promo Packs in FIFA 22

FIFA 22 will definitely bring us some different types of packs and player picks.

PACK OPENING: Will you get lucky?

The most expensive pack in FUT 21 is the Ultimate Pack, for 125k coins, so could we see a 150k, or even a 200k pack in FIFA 22?

New Commentary Team

Derek Rae and Lee Dixon replaced the classic FIFA commentary team of Alan Smith and Martin Tyler ahead of the release of FIFA 21, but they haven't quite lived up to the expectations of the FIFA community.

So they've decided to do something about it.

A petition has been launched calling for Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher to lead the commentary on FIFA 22, a pairing which we would love to see

Carragher has revealed his interest in a FIFA return on social media, but whether EA look to add the punditry pair remains to be seen.

Career Mode

Every Career Mode fan loves a wonderkid, and there should be some great ones on FIFA 22.

It looks like Eduardo Camavinga and Jude Bellingham will battle it out for midfield dominance, but they could have some new competition from Xavi Simons.

Take a look at our FIFA 22 Wonderkids.

Demo

There was no demo for FIFA 21, but we are sure that EA will release one this year ahead of FIFA 22.

News on this could come soon as the demo will come out a month or so before the full game.

Find out more about the FIFA 22 Demo.

Player 2 has entered the game

The biggest competition EA faces each year is from Konami's PES franchise.

Efforts have been well and truly focused on PES 2022, with Konami electing to release PES 2021 as a "Season Update" of the previous title.

With a teaser already revealed, this is likely to be the fiercest battle we've seen between the two football games in well over a decade.
