Rumors are circulating that this will be new tech to improve in-game animations, as opposed to a new engine like Frostbite. However, details are scarce on the subject so far.
Clearly, not all of these events will be showing off FIFA 22 content. Though, the two most likely are on July 20 and July 22, which is the ‘More EA SPORTS’ event and the main ‘EA Play Live’ show.
Heading into EA Play 2021, FIFA 22 players will be looking forward to seeing if a number of leaks come to fruition. A few of the most prominent ones can be found below:
- 20 ICON cards to be added to Ultimate Team
- Two new formations
- Custom tactics returning to the old system
- No Champions Edition in FIFA 22
- Online Career Mode
- Atletico Madrid to join the EA Partner Club program
- New leagues, stadiums, and teams
- Release date: September 24
- Web App launch: September 15
- FIFA 22 pre-orders: July 11
Despite so many different potential leaks and rumors circulating before FIFA 22 EA Play Live 2021, it’s worth noting that we mainly see trailers at these events.
Therefore, we expect to see a cinematic trailer, release date, and pre-order date confirmed during the showcase, with more details dripping out in the form of official Pitch Notes for each mode in late July.
If any new information is revealed for the EA Play 2021 event, we’ll be sure to let you know.
