FIFA 22: New ICONs Leaks & Rumors

By July 9, 2021No Comments

With the release of FIFA 22 ever approaching, more and more information gets rumored, leaked, and discovered. Today, we’ll be looking at the information gathered about new ICONs and the changes coming to the ICON system in FIFA 22. 

One of the biggest changes to note is the introduction of a new class of ICON cards: the ICON Hero card. Similar to typical ICON cards, hero cards are lower-rated ICONs who have had excellent performances and memorable moments in previous games, though not classified by EA as being on the same level as regular ICONs. The existence of these cards was further confirmed when Twitter user FUT Watch discovered a new team called “FUT Heroes Club” in the code of the game. These new clubs cement the idea that FIFA 22 will contain this new type of card.

 

Due to the addition of hero cards, it is likely that many new player cards will be added with some being ICONs and others being Heroes.
