eFootball 22 is the dawn of a new era for Konami, but its legendary football franchise is horrifying gamers with its captured player faces and broken crowds.

Given that eFootball 22 is a fresh start for Konami in the battle with FIFA for the love of football fans everywhere, early indicators are that its player models and crowds need some TLC.

For the longest time, FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer have competed to deliver the best simulation of the beautiful game, and Konami hit the reset button this year by rebranding as eFootball, a free, live service version of its regular offering.

But images shared across social media have worried fans as some horrifying and warped images have raised questions about eFootball 22.

Multiple Twitter users have posted pictures of their experience with eFootball 22, and the game’s focus on realism has been questioned.

User @XRPadaxlm posted an image of Lionel Messi looking quite surprised, and one of his eyes looked a bit loose, to say the least.

The user also added: “This gonna become a meme every time Messi fails to score for PSG.”

Whereas @GXL_Redge showed Messi’s rival of the last decade, Cristiano Ronaldo, is seemingly celebrating a goal with a leaf blower being aimed at his face.

Finally, @Raffaele120393 managed to capture a shot of the crowd all raising their arms in the air and performing an action of some sort.

Although, it’s quite difficult to make out as the crowd either hasn’t rendered or is just in desperate need of some maintenance.

The title was released today, and these are just three examples already of potential hiccups that exist within the game.

Halo Infinite is almost here, and although players already know quite a lot about the next installment of the franchise, many are wondering just how old Master Chief is.

Halo Infinite is set to bring the franchise back with a bang, offering players a Campaign mode with a new story and the classic Multiplayer with a fresh take on the battle pass system.

Even those who aren’t fans of the series will know who Master Chief is, the main protagonist of the series.

Many are wondering what his depiction will be like in the new game, and some are even asking how old the iconic character is now.

Master Chief, otherwise known as John-117, is the main protagonist in the Halo franchise. The character is extremely iconic, especially the armor, as Master Chief has become the face of the franchise.

We know Master Chief is returning in Halo Infinite, as well as Cortana, the artificial intelligence that helps the Petty Officer on missions.

Halo Infinite will take place in 2560, so players are wondering just how old Master Chief is now, and whether that will have any effect on the character’s future in the franchise, as rumor has been going around that it could be his last adventure.

The community has worked out that Master Chief is biologically 49 years old in 2560, as he was born in 2511. As many fans will know, John was genetically mutated to become a super-soldier by Dr. Halsey. Players know this gives the character inhumane reflexes and capabilities, but they’re also wondering if this affects his age.

Further, Master Chief can also be found in cryosleep when he isn’t out on a mission, potentially further slowing down the aging process. So, although he is 49 years old, he could be much younger, perhaps by around ten years.

So there you have it, biologically Master Chief is 49 years old, but his genetic mutations and time in cryosleep may have halted the process and have made him younger when it comes to his physical condition.

It’s time for another FIFA 22 Team of the Week. In FIFA 22 TOTW 6, there are some huge names for people to add to their teams, and the featured player is a former FUT favorite.

Ultimate Team remains the most popular mode in the FIFA series. One of the many reasons for this is incorporating real-world football into its addictive gameplay loop through special cards, such as Icons or the new FUT Heroes.

One of the mode’s oldest special items is the Team of the Week, which offers players a weekly batch of new upgraded cards to help build out their squads. We’ve got everything you need to know about FUT TOTW right here.

We’ll be updating this hub with the latest FIFA 22 TOTW, so be sure to check back here every week.

Team of the Week 6 has reportedly been leaked thanks to Weaver – FUT, and we know the cards that are expected to be revealed on Wednesday.

The FIFA 22 TOTW 6 is here, and it’s full of big names from across the world.

Check out the full, rumored squad for the FIFA 22 TOTW 6 here:

What are TOTW cards in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team?

Team of the Week items are special cards that boost stats based on that player’s performance in the previous week of real-world games. Any player awarded an in-form will see both their ratings and in-game stats get a permanent increase.

Every week, EA unveils a 23-man squad of the stars who had the best games in the previous domestic or international fixtures round. They could be awarded for a last-minute winner in a big game or a heroic performance from a goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet.

Each TOTW is available in packs for an entire week until it is replaced by the next squad on the following Wednesday. Player’s can not receive an in-form two weeks in a row.

While the in-form card is in packs, it replaces the base version of that player. The normal card will return to packs when that TOTW is over.

FIFA 22 Ultimate Team Featured TOTW

In FIFA 22, EA has addressed fans’ complaints that TOTW items are often quickly rendered useless by the other promotional cards added to the game throughout the year.

Every week, one player will receive a special Featured TOTW card. These players will receive a larger boost than the rest of the squad in an attempt to make them more desirable to those building their teams.

To qualify for this additional stat-boost, the player must have a base card that is under 80-rated and not have any other performance-based card in packs – such as a Ones to Watch.

When is the TOTW released?

Historically, EA announces the latest TOTW every Wednesday so that any Monday night games can be considered.

No specific time has been set for when the team will be announced. However, so far, they have tended to surface at around 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 4 PM BST.

We’ll update this post with an exact schedule as and when it is available.

To unlock the Planestride emblem in Destiny 2 Season of the Lost, players must obtain the Vanguard ornament for the Season 15 ritual weapon to complete the “Display of Supremacy” weekly challenge.

At the time of writing, the Planestrider emblem is currently unavailable as it only drops during Destiny 2 Season of the Lost Week 10’s challenges.

Bungie introduced weekly challenges during Destiny 2 Season of the Chosen and they added a ton of playability to each season by adding in extra objectives that rewarded XP and bonuses.

It’ll still be a bit of time until players can complete this objective and gain access to the special emblem.

It’s expected that the Polanestrider emblem will be an item exclusive to Season of the Lost, so all Guardians should focus on acquiring it as soon as the challenge is active.
