FIFA 22 Ratings Collective

Today EA released info of how FIFA 22 will launch .. We still don’t have full details of everything yet but this is a start

The full article from EA can be found here.

Early Access

EA Play members can kick off their FUT 22 journey with a 10 hour trial starting from September 22. EA Play Pro players will have full game access on PC starting from September 22. For those who pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition, full game access will begin September 27, 4 days ahead of worldwide launch on October 1. 

During Early Access you’ll find the following content:

  • An untradeable 80-84 OVR Player Pick and a 10 game loan Team of the Week (TOTW) player earned via special Early Access Objectives.
  • Team of the Week #1 with boosted Items highlighting the best performing players from the previous week’s footballing action. Plus the first Featured TOTW Item of FUT 22. More on that later.
  • A limited-time Early Access Live FUT Friendly where you can compete for pack rewards.

On top of that, kick off Ones To Watch (OTW) early with an OTW Player Squad Building Challenge (SBC) available exclusively during Early Access. 

Ones To Watch

On the topic of Ones To Watch, the full campaign launches on October 1.

As a reminder, Ones To Watch (OTW) celebrates the transfer window’s biggest moves with dynamic Items that have the potential to upgrade based on how players perform for their new clubs.

As players earn Team of the Week and Man of the Match Items throughout the season, their OTW Items will upgrade as well.

New for FUT 22, OTW Items will also be eligible for a ‘Wins to Watch’ upgrade. This is a one-time, +1 In-Form boost given to an OTW Item if their new club wins five out of their next ten domestic league games starting from October 1!

In FUT 21, there were 22 OTW Items released across Team 1 and 2. This year, to help celebrate an astonishing transfer window, 6 additional OTW Items will be made available across both Team 1 and 2 for a total of 28. Two groups of 3 OTW Items will join their respective Team through Mini Releases on Sundays as outlined in the table below.

October 1 – October 8OTW Team 1 – First XI
October 3 – October 8OTW Team 1 – Mini Release
October 8 – October 13OTW Team 2 – First XI
October 10 – October 13OTW Team 2 – Mini Release

For those who pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition, you will receive a Guaranteed OTW Item (untradeable) when OTW kicks off on October 1. The OTW Item you receive will be based on when you open your pack, per the below dates:

October 1 – October 3OTW Team 1 First XI Only
October 3 – October 8OTW Team 1 Only
October 8 – October 10OTW Team 2 First XI Only
October 10 – October 13OTW Team 2 Only
October 13 onwardsOTW Team 1 and 2

Performance-Based Programs

A common thread of feedback we see around Performance-Based Programs such as Team of the Week, Man of the Match, or Player of the Month is that their ratings tend to fall behind the ratings of Items released as part of Campaigns as we move throughout the year. FUT’s unique connection to the real world of football is part of what makes the mode special. To help these Program releases better match the excItement of the footballing event they celebrate, we’ll be making some adjustments to our Performance-Based Programs throughout the year. Today, we’ll talk about one of those changes.

Introducing Featured Team Of The Week Items, a brand new way to celebrate the performance of a select Team of the Week player each week. Instead of a standard TOTW boost, Featured TOTW Items will be given a larger boost, increasing their appeal in squad building.

At launch, to be eligible for a Featured TOTW Item, a player’s highest rated Base or Performance-Based Item must be rated 80 or below and they must not have an active Live Item (Eg. Ones To Watch).

In addition, any future Performance-Based Items these players earn will build off of this boosted rating.

Below is an example of a potential Jude Bellingham Featured TOTW Item compared to a standard TOTW boost.

NOTE: Bellingham is not guaranteed to receive a TOTW or Featured TOTW Item, this example is for illustrative purposes only, including the stats, which might also differ should Bellingham earn a TOTW or Featured TOTW Item during FUT 22.

In the example above, you’ll notice the star icon above the Overall Rating on the Featured TOTW Item. This icon will visually distinguish Featured TOTW Items from standard TOTW Items. An important note is that Featured TOTW Items will still function as regular TOTW Items do across various aspects of FUT including in SBCs, Squad Requirements, Mode Rewards, Objective Requirements, and packs.

Featured TOTW Items are just one of the ways we hope to refresh our Performance-Based Programs throughout FUT 22. Stay tuned for more.

FUT Heroes

FUT Heroes are coming to FUT 22! Celebrate some of football’s most memorable players with FUT Heroes Items that represent the unforgettable moments that turned them into fan favorites.

All 19 FUT Heroes will be available in FUT starting from the Worldwide launch on October 1 and will remain in FUT for the entirety of FUT 22. There may be additional versions made available as part of select FUT 22 Campaigns and Programs. In case you missed it, you can see their ratings here!


This year, 4 new players join the elite ranks of FUT ICONs. In case you missed it, we’ve already revealed 3; Cafu, Iker Casillas, and Robin van Persie. Stayed tuned for the announcement of the final ICON coming soon. 

Based on your feedback, the ICON Program in FUT 22 will see many of the popular elements from FUT 21 return for another year. Namely ICON Swaps and ICONs SBCs will feature again.

We can also confirm that there will be four versions of each ICON in FUT 22; Base, Mid, Prime, and Moments. The Base and Mid versions will be available in FUT from launch with the subsequent versions made available throughout the year.

Stay tuned for more info on the ICON Program later this year.

Preview Packs

Following a positive reception from fans after their introduction in FIFA 21, Preview Packs will be available in FIFA 22 on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, Stadia and PC. As a reminder, Preview Packs are a pack type that allow you to see all the specific Items contained within. Once you have seen what is in the pack, you can choose to buy the pack, with either FUT Coins or FIFA Points. 

At launch you can expect to see the following:

  • The Premium Gold Pack will be available for Preview on a 24 hour refresh timer alongside the non-Preview version.
  • The Premium Silver Pack will be available for Preview on a 24 hour refresh timer alongside the non-Preview version.
