FIFA 22 FUT Heroes: EA hint at more cards coming in 'select campaigns'

What are FUT Heroes?

The FUT Heroes are a brand-new card type coming to FIFA 22 Ultimate Team this season, and they will be available from launch on Friday, 1 October.

They will be available for the whole season, although EA has hinted at more cards to come in their latest Ultimate Team deep dive.

The statement reads "There may be additional versions made available as part of select FUT 22 Campaigns and Programs."

This leaves the door open for further cards if they prove popular, but they could just as easily be canned if they don't win over the FUT community.

Chemistry Links

If you are wondering how the chemistry links will work, then look no further.

I NEED A HERO - Link the heroes with your league teams

Same league and same nationality will get you the best links, while just being in the same league will provide strong links too.

Same nationality but a different league will be okay with an orange link, and of course, nothing in common will result in a pesky red link.
