Lastest - La Liga's top team ratings reveal

Ratings-wise it looks like a top squad, however, it doesn't contain the star power of other leagues.

A lot of ageing players means that it contains very little pace, and we all know how important that is on FUT!

Release Date

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

FIFA 22 on Xbox Series X|S

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

All the next-gen consoles have been incredibly difficult to get hold of, but we hope by the time FIFA rolls around they will be more available.

NEXT GEN - Next Level gaming is coming soon

FIFA 22 on both Xbox Series X|S and PS5 could bring us the most realistic esports game ever, and we have already seen some of the graphic capabilities.

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

FIFA 22 DEMO: Fans are already looking forward to the demo of EA's next title

Next Gen consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X are out now, although stock has been difficult to come by!

Any Demo for FIFA 22 should be available on all consoles by the time the new game comes around.

The Next Gen versions did not have their own copy of FIFA 21, but this could change ahead of FIFA 22 on PS5 or Xbox Series X.

What we'd like to see from FIFA 22 on Xbox Series X|S

Here's our wishlist for FIFA 22 on the next gen.

Improved Defensive mechanism:

In FIFA 21, attacking and striking felt fantastic, offering perhaps some of the tightest gameplay we’ve ever seen in that area.

Unfortunately, the game’s defensive options left a lot to be desired. The system is more than showing its age at this point, and perhaps a full defensive overhaul should be on the cards for FIFA 22.

EA has made dispossessing attackers was much tougher than it needs to be, with groups of defenders struggling to handle a single attacking player.

Consequently, the improvements to attacking greatly overshadowed the stale defending mechanics, which often led to unbalanced matches.

Ultimate Team Adjustments:

Co-op functionality has been added to Ultimate Team, however, it is tied to the single-player experience, which provides another avenue of imbalance, as solo players could very easily be matched up with more than one player acting as their opponent.

A fully dedicated co-op mode would work wonders here, so you know you're playing 2 vs 2.

It would be great if FIFA 22 allowed the use of co-op in FUT Champions, allowing casual players to enjoy their 30 Weekend League Games with friends.
