Play football like you’re living it
FIFA 22 is a football simulation video game that lets you play football or soccer in a more realistic setting. Developed by EA Canada and published by Electronic Arts, this sports game is part of the FIFA video game franchise’ line-up for 2020 and succeeding years and adds more realism to the gameplay experience.
As the sequel to FIFA 21, FIFA 22 retains some of its predecessors’ features. However, it also adds new ones to elevate your football playing. Notably, though, the PC version doesn’t have the next-gen upgrades included on other platforms—allowing low-end PCs to run it smoothly.
Will FIFA 22 have World Cup Mode?
FIFA, also known as FIFA Football or FIFA Soccer, is a popular game franchise that releases annual titles to keep up with real-life changes in the football world—whether it’s about new and old players or teams competing in various tournaments. It’s considered one of the best-selling video game franchises around and includes games on single major tournaments like the FIFA World Cup and UEFA Champions League.
This time, FIFA 22 brings back some of the beloved features from the previous titles. These include modes like Career Mode, VOLTA FOOTBALL, Pro Clubs, FIFA Ultimate Teams, and World Cup. Some of these have been improved—like an all-new Create a Club experience for Career Mode, reimagined gameplay for VOLTA FOOTBALL, and the addition of FIFA Ultimate Team Heroes. The goalkeeper system has also been completely rebuilt.
The game’s most awaited feature, however, is its new HyperMotion Technology. This allows high-intensity 11v11 matches to be captured realistically and fluidly as you play—with the AI creating new animations in real-time for a more immersive gameplay experience. However, with this high cost comes the lack of next-gen improvements on the game’s graphics, as the game opts to allow mid-to-low tier PCs to run it.
Playable for all
All in all, FIFA 22 still retains what made the previous games highly enjoyable and lets lower-end computers be able to play it without crashing. While this sacrifices the high-end graphics that the series is known for, the realism still doesn’t stop as it brings back beloved game modes and even implements a new machine learning algorithm technology for your gameplay.
