FIFA 22’s make some interesting changes to the way things work in this year’s series, and the headline change is, of course, the new HyperMotion Technology. In the game’s recent gameplay release, the developers at EA Sports delve behind the scenes looking at how the biggest improvements for this year’s installment were crafted, while showing plenty of these in action with accurate gameplay pictures.
HyperMotion technology is the big change, of course, and it has obviously made animations far more fluid and organic during games. Players move, hit the ball, run, and interact with each other in a much more realistic way, which is not only good to look at, but, as you would imagine, it is has a definite effect on gameplay as well.
Things like the AI enhancements, improvements made to aerial battles, humanizing players with more bespoke and realistic animations and behaviors, improved ball physics, fully rewritten goalkeeper animations, and much more show them.
Of course, most releases don’t show much gameplay – there are a few clips found here and there, but we’ll probably have to wait until tomorrow’s EA Play Live event to get an accurate, extended look on the game. . In the meantime, check out the video below.
FIFA 22 launches on PS5, Xbox Series X / S, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia, and Nintendo Switch on October 1. Only PS5, Xbox Series X / S, and Stadia will get the major new enhancements (including Technology HyperMotion). PC players are being left out for the second year running, because EA probably didn’t want to deal with raising the basic requirements of the system, while Nintendo Switch players are once again getting a legacy edition.
