Latest News - Next Gen Review

Want to know what to expect from FIFA 22? Well, don't guess, check out our FIFA 22 next-gen review.

For just a taste of what it is about, take a look over our 'first impressions'.

"Gameplay is the fundamental aspect of any FIFA title, and after getting to terms with the new game's meta - which takes a little bit longer this year thanks to the new more realistic broadcast camera - we believe fans will be very pleased with what the EA team has produced.
"That new camera angle, plus the ability to spread the ball to the flanks with ease, immediately makes you think this is more akin to real football rather than another arcade-like simulation.

"The 11v11 motion capture conducted by EA has worked wonders, with your forwards making more intelligent runs, your midfielders dropping off into space, and your defenders defending as a unit to quell the opposition attack.
"For passing and shooting you can now afford to hit the ball a bit harder, although we are yet to master the tricks of the trade when one on one with the goalkeeper - especially in Ultimate Team.
"Defenders can lose their markers from time to time, meaning that "sweaty" goals could be common until patched out, but it also does provide a realistic balance when crossing balls into the box."

Release Date

The release date for EA's upcoming title is creeping up on us, as FIFA 22 will be released worldwide on Friday, 1 October 2021.
