Game overview

Powered by Football™, EA SPORTS FIFA 22 moves the game forward with next-gen HyperMotion gameplay technology.

In EA SPORTS™ FIFA 22, every moment on the pitch is elevated with HyperMotion, a gameplay technology designed to harness the power of PlayStation 5. Integrating Advanced 11v11 Match Capture and Machine Learning, HyperMotion brings real-time, real-player movement data from professional footballers in high-intensity matches to FIFA 22 for the most realistic, responsive and fluid gameplay experience in FIFA's history. 

Classic game modes return with a new season of innovation: Create your own club in Career Mode, dial up the nostalgia with new FIFA Ultimate Team Heroes, and get rewarded for your skill on the streets with reshaped gameplay in VOLTA FOOTBALL

HyperMotion gameplay technology

Brand new for EA SPORTS FIFA and exclusively on next generation consoles, HyperMotion integrates two technologies for the first time ever, revolutionizing football gameplay:

Advanced 11v11 Match Capture

Xsens suits enable motion capture from 22 professional footballers playing in a competitive match for the first time. This unprecedented real-human movement data powers how both individuals and teams move across FIFA 22.

Machine Learning

Our cutting-edge and proprietary Machine Learning algorithm learns from over 8.7m frames of advanced match capture, then writes new animations in real time to create organic football realism across a variety of interactions.

The result is a more realistic, responsive and fluid gameplay experience in every match across every mode of FIFA 22 on PS5:

 

Full Team Authentic Motion

A fundamental leap forward, Xsens Suits enables data to be recorded from all 22 players during real-world competitive matches for the first time ever. Data captured from every touch, tackle, sprint and duel results in the biggest animation refresh in FIFA history, raising the footballing intensity, responsiveness and physicality of every player in the game to unlock the most true-to-life movement of the franchise.

ML - Flow

Our machine learning algorithm reinvents how animations work in sports video games, delivering greater fluidity and visual realism than ever before. Leveraging more then 8.7m frames from Advanced 11 v. 11 Match Capture, the algorithm learns from and then writes new animations in real-time, enabling players to better adjust their stride and running cadence to more smoothly approach controlling or striking the ball.

Tactical A.I.

Driven by the power of PlayStation 5, Tactical A.I. creates deeper intelligence across all 22 players, giving each individual footballer the ability to better understand their teammates’ and opponents’ formations and movement to create a new level of tactical realism.

In attack, players can now make up to 6x more decisions per second, resulting in better awareness of their surroundings, smarter runs in build-up play and more speed in reacting to loose balls. Rewritten defensive AI means teams now operate more as a unit, retaining their shape to move across the pitch and cover vacant space.

Kinetic Air Battles

New two player interaction technology syncs player animations, creating greater realism and responsiveness as they jump to battle for the ball. See defenders and attackers push, pull and jostle as they rise to meet crosses, clearances and long passes, increasing quality in heated situations and creating cleaner outcomes as players fight to be first to the ball.

Composed Ball Control

Powered by the animation refresh, controlling the ball in FIFA 22 is more natural and fluid than ever before. Longer two-touch animations enable better control of aerial balls, more agility when trapping ground balls and more strength in shielding situations to give you new ways to drive forward in attack.

Player Humanization

Powered by Advanced 11v11 Match Capture, new off-ball player animations and ambient behavior help bring on-pitch characters to life. See opponents talk, point, and direct each other based on the action, while intensity-based locomotion and natural-looking player behaviors make FIFA more realistic and immersive than ever.
