Shapeshifters is the next promo in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, but what are Shapeshifter cards and how are they special?

Read on to find out.

What are Shapeshifters cards?

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

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

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.

Release Date & Time

The Shapeshifters promo has now been officially confirmed, and it is set to launch on Friday, 17 June at 1pm ET / 6pm BST.

A squad will be released into packs, with an objective player or two expected to be made available when the event kicks off, as well as a few SBCs coming throughout the campaign.

Shapeshifters had two squad releases in FIFA 20, and with EA specifying that a "Shapeshifter Team #1 item" can be earned through the new Objective, it looks like we should see a two-week promo coming again this time.

We expect Team 1 will be released initially, then Team 2 will follow on Friday, 24 June, staying in packs for a further week, before rotating out on Friday, 1 July.
