FIFA 22 Leaks: Here’s What We Know

By July 8, 2021No Comments

After all this waiting, there is finally some FIFA 22 information circulating in the form of leaks. These leaks include information from tweaks and updates to brand-new additions and features.ย 

First, letโ€™s dive into the changes coming to current systems.ย 

The menus themselves are going to use a different design than FIFA 21 in addition to the new blue and green/yellow color scheme being used this year. Continuing on with visuals, weโ€™ll be seeing an overall improvement to the graphics of the game as it was made specifically to use the new power of the next-gen consoles. Stand-based hair will be added to many more players to provide even more realism to the game. So far De Bruyne is the only player to be confirmed with getting an upgrade to his hair but more will definitely be on the way.

 

There is now another option available for switching between players and the 2nd man press returns albeit, much weaker than before. In addition, beta players have reported that directional nutmegs are no longer strong, though crossing and heading have become very strong, possibly the new meta.

 

 

In addition to the new changes, there are also a number of brand new features being added to the game including new stats and increased customization.ย 

Players will now line up and warm up while wearing prematch jackets/training kits before games start, adding another bit of customization and realism to the game.

FUT players will be excited as there are going to be multiple new icons with Cafu and Di Natale supposedly confirmed.

Alex Scott is confirmed to be coming to FIFA 22 as a brand new commentator, the first woman commentator in any FIFA game. In addition, there are rumors about Jimmy Carragher, Gary Nevil, and Ray Hudson to be coming on as new commentators as well.

For those who love to know everything about their games, FIFA 22 will introduce a new heatmap and a brand new stat: expected goals or XG.ย 

There are also new custom tactics and new team formations including 3-5-1-1, 5-4-1(Diamond), and 5-2-3 which allow much more customization for team management and player movement.ย 

 

Last but not least, the volta game mode returns in this installment of FIFA so players can once again show off their skills in a variety of interesting settings.ย 

Thatโ€™s all the news currently available about the new changes coming up in FIFA 22!
