FIFA 22 Ultimate Team has replaced the mammoth Team of the Season promo with the Shapeshifters event.

Shapeshifters is a returning promo from FIFA 20 and sees top stars getting their base positions played about with.

Find out all you need to know about the Shapeshifters promo below, including the latest news, and rumours around the cards.

Latest - Team 4

The fourth and final Shapeshifters team is now live!

Once again, FUT Heroes are included, with some of them gaining league changes as well as positional ones.

N'Golo Kante and Kyle Walker look to be the non-Hero stars of the team, with the Premier League pair gaining insane stats.

You can check out the full Shapeshifters Team 4 squad right here.

On top of the 11 new players being added to packs, we gained an SBC and objectives for:

Team 4 Mini-Release

The last mini-release of the Shapeshifters event has dropped, with three more players adding to the side.

Tim Cahill is probably the best of the trio, switching to a CDM with 90+ in all his base stats!

He is joined by David Silva, who makes his way onto the left-wing, and Bundesliga CM turned RB Amadou Haidara.

Release Date

The Shapeshifters promo launched on Friday, 17 June at 1pm ET / 6pm BST - the same time that the Ultimate TOTS rotated out of packs.

The event has lasted longer than many expected, with Team 4 set to be the final release, which will rotate out of packs on Friday, 15 July.


The Shapeshifters promo was first seen in FIFA 20, although it didn't reappear in FIFA 21, so we already knew what sort of mechanics to expect.

As always, the promo players will receive massive boosts, but they will also have their cards transformed, with changes coming to player positions, work rates, weak foot ability, and updated attributes to better suit their new position.

TRANSFORMED TALENT - New positions are the order of the day for this promo

Four squads have been released into packs, with a couple of objective players made available with each side, as well as a few SBCs coming throughout the campaign.

Shapeshifters had two squad releases in FIFA 20, and EA has matched and exceeded that, becoming a bumper four-week event!

Team 1

The Shapeshifters promo has come to FIFA 22!

The leaks were proved correct once again, with some insane cards released, including two who boast 90+ in all their base stats.

Lionel Messi headlines the side with a 99 OVR card, but it is perhaps Alphonso Davies who is the star of the show.

As well as the main squad coming to packs, the following players have been released via objectives and SBCs:

Team 1 Mini-Release

Three more players joined the Shapeshifters Team 1 players in packs at the weekend, with England international Jack Grealish the main attraction.

Andrew Robertson and Everton were the other players included in the Shapeshifters Team 1 mini-release.

Team 2

The second of a potential FOUR Shapeshifters teams in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team brought another upgraded GOAT to the game.

Cristiano Ronaldo headlines the squad with an immense 99 OVR card, with ex-clubmates Marcelo and Sergio Ramos also handed brilliant cards!

As well as the main squad coming to packs, the following players were released via SBC and objectives:

Team 2 Mini-Release

Just like with Team 1, three more players joined Team 2 at the weekend in a mini-release, with Adama Traore the most exciting of the lot.

Emre Can and Thiago Mendes were the other players included in the Shapeshifters Team 2 mini-release.

Team 3

Shapeshifters Team 3 gave us 11 new cards in packs, five of which are upgraded FUT Heroes.

David Ginola is the star of the squad with a 98 OVR and is joined by other FUT Hero Shapeshifters Mario Gomez, Freddie Ljungberg, Fernando Morientes and Lars Ricken.

Of the non-Heroes, Franck Ribery also gets a 98 OVR card, however, it is Marcus Rashford and Federico Valverde who really caught our attention.

As well as those 11 players coming to packs, the following cards became available to unlock via objectives and SBC:

Team 3 Mini-Release

Another three players added to the Team 3 squad over the weekend, with James Maddison the highest-rated of the lot with a 95 OVR card.

Giovanni Reyna and another FUT Hero in Jurgen Kohler were the other players included in the Shapeshifters Team 3 mini-release.

Daily Delights Objective & SBC

The Shapeshifters content came early, with the Shapeshifters Daily Delights objective set launching on Wednesday, 15 June, giving you the opportunity to unlock player picks, a couple of Team of the Season Packs and a guaranteed Shapeshifters player!

The objective set and SBC have now expired, however, you can check out the rewards you could have gained right here.

Cup Competitions

It was leaked that three new Live FUT Friendlies would become available during the campaign, all offering untradeable rewards, which are:

  • Shapeshifters Cup
  • Shapeshifters Bronze Select
  • Shapeshifters Silver Select

The Shapeshifters Bronze and Silver Select cups swa EA testing out the Live Opponent mechanics in FUT Friendlies again, with Bronze teams battling against Silver ones.

The more wins you get in each mode, the better the rewards you gain in the corresponding objectives.

We have seen a couple of Shapeshifters Cup objectives released that offer increasingly better rewards depending on how many wins you get in the Live FUT Friendly, which has a limited number of entries per day.
