FIFA 22’s making some interesting changes to the way things work in the series this year, and the headlining change is, of course, the new HyperMotion Technology. In the game’s recent gameplay reveal, the developers at EA Sports dove deep into behind-the-scenes look at how the biggest improvements for this year’s instalment were crafted, while showing plenty of these in action with proper gameplay footage.

HyperMotion Technology is the big change, of course, and it’s evidently made animations a lot more fluid and organic during matches. Players move, strike the ball, make runs, and interact with each other in a much more realistic fashion, which is not only good to look at, but, as you might imagine, has a tangible impact on gameplay as well.

Things such as the AI improvements, improvements made to aerial battles, humanizing players with more bespoke and realistic animations and behaviours, better ball physics, completely rewritten goalkeeper animations, and much more are also shown off.

Of course, the majority of the reveal doesn’t show much gameplay- there’s some clips peppered in here and there, but we’re probably going to have to wait until tomorrow’s EA Play Live event to get a proper, extended look at 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 big new improvements (including HyperMotion Technology). PC players are being left out for the second year in a row, since apparently EA didn’t want to deal with raising the minimum system requirements, while Nintendo Switch players are once again getting a legacy edition.
