With a new season will come new objectives, with rewards available to earn throughout the early access period too.
The official start date of Season 1 will likely be Friday, 1 October, in line with the full launch of the game, although a pre-season 1 period could begin earlier.
Early Access begins on Monday, 27 September for those who pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition of the game, and EA has confirmed there will be objectives to complete in that time.
EA Play members can also get in the game early with the 10-hour trial beginning on Wednesday, 22 September.
Ones to Watch
The Ones to Watch event will be the first in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, and it is bigger and better than ever before!
28 players will be released over the first two weeks of FUT 22, with 11 players released on Friday, 1 October, and another 11 the following Friday.
A bonus three players will be released midweek too, bolstering the 11 items already available.
There will also be an exclusive Ones to Watch SBC made available during early access, so keep an eye out for that!
Unless EA has any further surprises planned, the season objectives should remain pretty familiar.
With 30 levels to work your way through offering various rewards along the way, it will be the perfect chance to kickstart your Ultimate Team.
We could see some League objective players released early on in FUT 22 too after months of non-releases in FIFA 21.
Expect to see plenty of packs and vanity items made available in the early stages of Season 1.
