Fifa 22: what’s new and when it arrives

The wait for Fifa 22 is at its peak, and it is understandable since it is one of the most popular games of all time: news, output and how to get it in preview

Like any technological product or video game now close to the presentation, even the wait for Fifa 22 is splashed to the max. Many fans of video games and soccer can not wait to get their hands on the next title of EA Sports, and if you still need a few days of waiting we can already clear our minds.

Fifa 22 in the months leading up to the release has had to go through a series of stages and also a nice note of Italian color. At the beginning of July, EA announced which player would be on the cover: it will be, as it is now known, Kylian Mbappé, star class '98 of PSG that despite coming from a not exciting European championship remains one of the most fervent talents of world soccer, as well as one of the most famous faces of the ball in the world. After Italy's victory at the European Championship, a group of Italian fans set up a petition on Change asking the Fifa 22 management to put Giorgio Chiellini on the cover, and not for his (excellent) football skills but to "honor our Captain, Giorgio Chiellini we ask that his pronounced big nose be placed on the cover of Fifa 22", collecting over 20 thousand signatures.

Color notes aside, Fifa 22 will bring with it a number of interesting new features. One of the most visible will be represented by a change in the commentary booth: the first voice, for the eighth edition in a row, will be that of Pierluigi Pardo, but at his side there will be this year Lele Adani, former Inter footballer and now commentator for several television stations.

On the technical front will debut HyperMotion technology that will ensure animations qualitatively superior to those seen previously, thus determining a real generational furrow. On the technical side, HyperMotion technology will provide higher quality animations than those previously seen, making it a true generational breakthrough. There will also be the 11-on-11 Advanced Capture System and a machine learning algorithm.

On the game experience front, the new Create a Club, a new gameplay in Volta Football and FIFA Ultimate Team Heroes will debut in the career mode, representing the history and glory of some players who have become legends of football.

On the other hand, it has emerged that Fifa 22 will lack the rights of some Serie A teams, specifically Juve, Roma, Atalanta and Lazio, which will consequently be called Juventus FC, Roma FC, Bergamo Calcio and Latium, but the players of the four clubs will have their real names and likenesses under the agreement between EA Sports and the international federation of footballers FIFPro.
