EA Sports has pulled back the curtain on FIFA 22 with a predictably vague trailer — but the gist of it is that this year’s instalment is powered by ‘HyperMotion Technology’. Supposedly, this new tech allows EA Sports to create more lifelike gameplay through realistic animations and player interactions. The developer’s really trying to make a big deal out of this, so it’ll be interesting to see whether actual gameplay shows a noticeable difference in quality.
Speaking of which, FIFA 22 will be at EA Play Live later this month, on the 22nd July, and gameplay footage has been promised.
FIFA 22 itself is out on the 1st October for both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, and once again stars Kylian Mbappé on the cover. Other ‘FIFA Ambassador’ players include Heung-Min Son, Phil Foden, David Alaba, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Christian Pulisic. In other words, these are the players you’ll see in and around the game’s menus and marketing.
