Electronic Arts’ next big sports title FIFA 22 is still several weeks off but it’s a good time to look at all of new features that it brings, especially in Ultimate Team. The mode is a major cash-cow for the publisher and as such, it’s seeing a number of changes to progression in Division Rivals, customization and FUT Stadium. Check out the trailer below.
Division Rivals once again sees players competing against the community to earn rewards. Checkpoints allow for staying at the “right level” for one’s skill while win streaks promise faster progression. New stages, ranks and divisions are on hand with the Division resetting with each season’s end. Keep winning matches in a week to increase your rank and earn progress towards seasonal milestones which pay out rewards depending on the amount of matches played.
As for FUT Stadium, it offers even more customization options including improved crowd elements (like Flags and Banners) and a new VIP Area. Item management has also been improved to make it easier to seek out a specific look. Co-op public matchmaking is also being introduced and allows for teaming with other players in duos to compete in a FUT Friendlies Classic Match.
FIFA 22 is out on October 1st for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia along with a Legacy Edition for Switch.
