Confirmed FIFA 22 features
You can learn more about the gameplay of FIFA 22 from the trailer below.
The first feature confirmed for this year’s release is HyperMotion. As seen in the first official trailer and deep dive, players are trying to capture motion in 11v11 match situations.
Using a proprietary machine learning algorithm, the technology was used to evaluate more than 8.7 million frames of player movement to create animations in real time. This gives the game a more organic feel, interactions and reactions are more accurately rendered. This benefits the player to move both inside and outside the ball.
HyperMotion is exclusive to PS5, Xbox Series X/S and Stadia versions of the game.
Also confirmed is the rebuilding of the goalkeeper system from scratch, with more animation and a higher degree of reliability.
You can adjust your offensive tactics to change depending on which half of the ball you are in. This means that even if you have the ball, you are less likely to attack anyone forward while the ball is still in your area.
Career mode is expanding this year with the ability to create your own football club and lead it to victory.
While not much is known yet, Volta will have a redesigned gameplay.
