The FIFA 22 Update 7 patch notes are here and bring with them a new skill animation, along with new portraits for some players and much-needed bug fixes for the game.

EA Sports have been pumping out major updates for FIFA 22 the last couple of months. The devs have touched everything from stadium glitches causing visibility issues to more impactful changes to goalies and driven passes.

These patches have gone a long way to fixing some of the game’s biggest issues. With that said, Update 7 is going to be much smaller in terms of what it’s actually bringing to the game.

Here are all the details you need to know about the upcoming FIFA 22 patch that should hit the live servers soon.

FIFA 22 new skill move animation

The new FIFA patch will introduce a new skill animation for the heel chop.

The headline change in the FIFA 22 update is a new skill move animation that will trigger when doing a Heel Chop.

“Added a new Skill Move animation that occurs when performing a Heel Chop diagonally behind the face angle of the ball carrier.”

Footballers with a three-star skills rating can pull off the trick, and players should notice a different animation when performing it away from in front of the ball carrier.

FIFA audio fix

The new FIFA 22 update will have bug fixes for audio issues in the game.

The FIFA 22 devs are addressing an annoying interaction between EA Trax and EATV videos that mixed their audios when seeing it in fullscreen.

While not the direst of fixes, EA cleaned up the A/V issue that affected the EATV offerings which will now hopefully be resolved.

Take a look at the FIFA 22 Update 7 patch notes below that should be a quick download for most players.
