FIFA 22 New Gameplay Features

FIFA 22 Latest News

EA Sports today released the official FIFA 22 gameplay trailer, as always this gives fans a first look at all the brand new features coming to the new game that launches on the 1st of October for the standard edition.

As with last year along with the trailer comes the pitch notes, which is a deep dive into all of the features coming with new gameplay enhancements. This pitch notes are extremely detailed and thoroughly well done, giving you a glimpse of the year to come.

Below are some of the new features from today’s pitch notes article, all of which can be found in full at

HyperMotion Gameplay Technology

“HyperMotion is the foundation for FIFA 22 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia that, for the first time in FIFA, combines two recent technologies in game development: full-team mocap data and machine learning. This allows us to increase authenticity and create new features for FIFA,” Said EA Sports.

Advanced 11v11 Match Capture Technology

“Xsens suits enable us to carry out a full-team motion capture with 22 professional footballers playing at a high-intensity level, while studying their exact movements. This means we can analyse real human motion in new levels of detail within a match situation, resulting in the biggest animation refresh in FIFA history with over 4000 new football-informed animations added to the game.

“These new animations are used to power Full Team Authentic Motion, Kinetic Battles, Player Humanization, Composed Ball Control, and more.

Machine Learning and ML-Flow (PS5/XSS/XSX Only)

“Combining Advanced 11v11 Mocap with the power of the new consoles and machine learning has enabled us to improve how players approach the ball on the pitch. We’ve been able to use over 8.7 million new frames of data to train a neural network outside of the game with as much information and detail as available. In FIFA 22, this has led to the development of the ML-Flow ᴺᴳ neural network.

“ML-Flow’s neural network algorithm is able to generate ball approach animations in real-time, including stride adjustments, running cadence, pose matching, and transitions. ML-Flow is designed to help increase the fluidity and authenticity of ball approaches.

New in FIFA 22

Full Team Authentic Motion

“As mentioned earlier, we’ve been able to add over 4000 new animations to FIFA 22.These new animations help improve immersion by adding variety to the gameplay experience, including set pieces, shooting, skill moves, passes, player movement, player reactions, celebrations, controlling the ball, two-player headers, falls, getups, dribbling, animation idles, shoulder challenges, seal outs, and more.

“Many animations were captured with the new Advanced 11v11 Match Capture, and thus are exclusive to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia.

Tactical AI

“We rewrote the intelligence and tactical approach of all 22 players on the pitch, emphasizing their roles, personality, and teamwork. Players better understand their teammates and how to work together, and also better understand opponents’ tactics and movements.


“Last year we improved several aspects of attacking players with Positioning Personality. This year with the new Tactical AI, attacking players can make up to 6 times more decisions per second, better showcasing their nuanced Player Personality. This allows them to be more aware of their surroundings, perform smarter runs in build-up play, exploit spaces in the defence, and generally be in the right place at the right time more often.

“As was the case last year, the Positioning Attribute continues to be the most important in determining the effectiveness of these behaviours.


“Your defenders can operate more as a unit with the new Tactical AI, maintain the shape of the formation when moving across the pitch, cover vacant spaces, mark each defending zone accordingly, and bring more authenticity to their overall defensive shape.

“As was the case last year, the Defensive Awareness Attribute continues to be the most important in determining the effectiveness of these behaviours.

“With Tactical AI, players have more personality in FIFA 22 than FIFA 21:

  • Defensive Work Rates and fatigue have a significant impact on the defensive positioning of players.
  • Placing any player that is not a Centre Back in a Centre Back position will negatively impact their defensive positioning.

“Our goal for Tactical AI is to ensure players have a balanced experience in terms of AI teammates, and we will keep monitoring FIFA 22 to make sure there are good ways to break defence down as well as good ways to counter.

Explosive Sprint

“Explosive Sprint rewards timing and your intelligence on the ball, giving players a more noticeable acceleration when Sprint (R2/RT) is pressed during the correct context.

“This mechanic changes the dynamic of 1 on 1 situations, allowing dribblers to explode forward and leave markers behind, or empowering defenders to catch up to a breakaway attacker. Explosive Sprint can be triggered while already in possession of the ball (dribbling) or when moving without the ball, it cannot be activated during the ball approach.

“The timing here is important, with the Explosive Sprint only being fully effective when facing and moving forward. If either the player is not fully moving forward or fully facing forward, you only get a partial effect. Note that when we say moving forward or fully facing forward, we refer to a straight line direction that the player in question is facing, meaning that Explosive Sprints are not fully effective when using them while moving in anything but a straight line. Normal acceleration rates when pressing or holding Sprint (R2/RT) still apply in all other situations.

“To balance the mechanic, the Explosive Sprint only happens for a short duration when activated, then tapers off, going into a cooldown period during which it cannot be activated again until it ends.

Player Humanization

“Inspired by the Advanced 11v11 Match Capture, in FIFA 22, we included additional animations to enhance player humanization and help give more life to players on the pitch. For example, you can see players talk to each other on the pitch and watch teammates point to certain areas as they request passes that show a better understanding of match situations.

“We’ve implemented new moments that increase immersion and humanization, like match mascots walking out with players during the entrance, a revamped intro sequence with more details, new facial expressions, refreshed player reactions, new ball retrieval scenes, and much more.

True Ball Physics

“We used real-world ball data from football matches as a foundation for FIFA 22’s ball physics, helping us to improve the authenticity of ball speed, swerve, air drag, air resistance, ground friction, and rolling friction.
