FUT Web App

We are already looking ahead to FIFA 22, with it set to be the first in the series to be fully optimized for next-gen consoles.

We are expecting the game to arrive in late September, although no official release date has been confirmed yet.

The most popular game will once more be Ultimate Team, but what does EA have in store for us on FIFA 22?

Latest - RealSport Wishlist

EA has livened up Ultimate Team in recent seasons, and the introduction of co-op on FUT 21 caused great excitement.

We hope that the game does see some improvements on FIFA 22 though, and we have put together a wishlist of seven features we want on FUT 22.

Match Modes

We can’t see EA making sweeping changes to the match modes, but they could use some tinkering.

Division Rivals

Arguably the most competitive game mode, we don’t think Division Rivals (and Weekend League) needs changing too much.

The FUT community would love better rewards, but the mode itself is solid as is. Adjustments to the co-op objectives would take the mode to new heights.

Squad Battles

For those who prefer to play online, it can be monotonous and time consuming, especially when trying to complete objectives.

This is another mode that needs the injection of co-op in its objectives to become a really enjoyable FUT mode.

FUT Friendlies

EA has started to use FUT Friendlies for their objectives, and so far, we have loved it.

Having to assemble new teams has actually been refreshing from the meta squads we see on a weekly basis, although some of the ‘score in x number of games’ objectives have created new issues.

Icons

We saw the FUT 100 introduced on FIFA 21, and with the addition of David Beckham there are now 101 legendary players available in Ultimate Team.

We want to see more added too, and we think Wayne Rooney has a great chance of being included after his transition into management.

There are plenty of other players who could be included too. After the likes of Xavi and Fernando Torres were added on FIFA 21, we have high expectations.

Take a closer look at potential FIFA 22 Icons.

Co-op

Probably the most disappointing aspect of FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

There were high hopes for co-op when it was introduced this season, but the lack of objectives available to complete in the mode has been dreadful.

If the Squad Battles, Rivals, and even FUT Friendly objectives were all available to complete while in co-op mode then the FUT community would be much happier.

As it stands, this is the mode we want to see the most change in.

Crossplay

Will we be able to play cross-gen on FIFA 22?

We hope so. Next-gen consoles have been hard to come by, so crossplay is almost a necessity if you want to play with your friends.

Yes, you can still play with them when playing the current-gen version of the game, but fingers crossed for better this year.

We don’t expect cross-platform play just yet on FIFA as it would play havoc with the FUT transfer market.

FUT Web App

One of the best ways to stay on top of your FUT squad is by using the FUT Web App.

Buy and sell players on the go in this easy-to-use app, as well as manage your squads. It can save you bags of time fiddling about in-game.
