EA is using the ‘HyperMotion’ engine in this year’s FIFA 22, which, as they claim, will prove revolutionary. HyperMotion uses motion-capture data from real football players to make the gameplay even more fluid and life-like. The visuals in the game look ever the more stunning than before with HyperMotion writing new animation in real-time. HyperMotion will be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S (sorry PC users!), giving them an unmatched gameplay experience.

Explosive Sprint

Explosive Sprint is, as EA puts it:

A new gameplay mechanic that changes the dynamic of one-on-one situations, Explosive Sprint gives you more control over acceleration when dribbling or defending.

And the sprinting!

With this mechanic, your player will get a substantial push and acceleration with the ball in the gameplay. So by using Explosive Sprint, you can get ahead of the players while defending or get closer to the defender while dribbling, given you used it correctly.

FIFA 22 will provide you with the ability to build a full women’s football team and advance in the game with it. This is the first time this feature will be included and will be a massive step forward.


At present, you do not need to find ten teammates to play the match because of the new Drop-In feature. You can squad up with up to 4 other players or only the recent teammates before searching for a Drop-In match. With Drop-In, you can even play with other Club players without having to leave your own Club.

What else to expect from FIFA 22!

Along with the above features, there is a lot more to be expected in FIFA 22:

  • Player Career – This year’s Player Career feature will have a lot of changes than before. Likely coming into the match as a substitute, a rating system that will tell your manager’s belief in you as a player, and a new system to generate match objectives.
  • True Ball Physics – EA will integrate data taken from balls used in actual matches to make the physics of every movement of the football look closer to the real thing than ever before.
  • Authenticity – EA has announced the UEFA Europa Conference League, among other additions to be announced on a later date to the video game for a more authentic experience.

With all the new mechanics and features, FIFA 22 promises to be another worthy addition to the widely-acclaimed FIFA franchise and aims to be the best addition to date.
