The much-anticipated first update and patch notes have been released for FIFA 22 by EA, and the new fix looks to improve most aspects of the game, with a big emphasis on goalkeepers and referees being improved.

The first patch for a FIFA game is always a biggie. FIFA 22 update #1 is no exception, as the full list of patch notes shows how much EA is trying to improve their latest attempt at simulated football.

From goalkeepers to other general gameplay, audio, and visual improvements, the full list of patch notes covers a lot of ground.

When does FIFA 22 title update #1 release for PC, Stadia, PS4, PS5, Xbox One & Xbox Series X|S?

As with every FIFA game, PC and Stadia players will get access to the update first with EA’s title update #1 blog post saying they will “will soon be available.” Whereas console players can expect it “at a later date.

There isn’t usually much of a difference between an update coming out on PC and the major consoles, so players shouldn’t have to wait too long overall.

What’s included in FIFA 22 title update #1?

The first major update FIFA 22 update from EA hasn’t just concentrated on one aspect of the game as all the game’s major game modes, including Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Volta, and Pro Clubs, have received changes.

The standout headline is that goalkeepers have been tweaked in a variety of ways, which shows that EA is listening to their audience.

Since the game’s launch, goalkeepers have been in almost every conversation concerning the game due to their hot and cold abilities. Before the update, GKs have probably been as capable of saving anything as they ever have been in a FIFA game, maybe too much.

Referees are also going to be a little more strict going forward with the officials recognizing more tackles and collisions as being a foul.

How to complete FIFA 22 Thomas Lemar TOTS SBC

Ultimate Team players can secure a dominant midfielder by completing the Thomas Lemar LaLiga TOTS SBC in FIFA 22.

Thomas Lemar TOTS SBC FIFA 22

French midfielder Thomas Lemar is available via SBC during the FIFA 22 TOTS promo. Here’s how to complete the FIFA 22 Lemar LaLiga TOTS SBC with the cheapest solution.

The TOTS promo is currently shining a light on LaLiga with players doing their best to secure the elite that Spain has to offer. EA have delivered a few SBCs as a part of the LaLiga TOTS promo including a Flashback Isco SBC and Iago Aspas TOTS SBC.

Now, players can get their hands on Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Lemar. While the French International usually plays out wide on the left-wing, this TOTS card makes for an interesting change by having him positioned as a CM.

Here’s what you need to know about the FIFA 22 Lemar TOTS SBC, including the cheapest solution.

FIFA 22 LaLiga TOTS Lemar SBC stats

Thomas Lemar TOTS SBC stats FIFA 22

While LaLiga has some incredible CMs to pick from, Lemar’s French nationality is a huge asset, and you’ll be able to get him into a variety of teams outside of LaLiga given the popularity of French players. Due to the position change, Lemar’s Physicality and Defending stats have received huge boosts.

You can utilize Lemar as a CAM, CM, and even CDM, with great success, and with his 94 Short Passing and 93 Long Passing, Lemar will prove to be an excellent distributor of the ball regardless of his positioning in your midfield. Lastly, his 95 Stamina will have you covering the entire pitch for 90 minutes.

FIFA 22 Atletico Madrid

To complete this SBC, players will need to give up three squads: France, Top Form, and LaLiga. With a value of around 210,000 coins, Lemar is only slightly overpriced, but those who have extra fodder should consider completing this FIFA 22 SBC.

If you completed Isco and Aspas or recently packed a LaLiga TOTS card you may want to give TOTS Lemar a try. In addition to complementing LaLiga squads, Lemar will fit in nicely with squads boasting several players from France.

How to complete FIFA 22 Fabinho & Rodrygo Showdown SBC

Players can secure one or both of Fabinho and Rodrygo as part of the new FIFA 22 Ultimate Team Showdown SBC.

Fabinho Rodrygo FIFA 22 Showdown SBC

As the iconic Champions League Final between Liverpool and Real Madrid approaches, FIFA 22 players will have the opportunity to complete the Fabinho and Rodrygo Showdown SBC.

While Ultimate Team players are currently focusing on securing the best TOTS cards available, EA have released two more top cards with the Fabinho and Rodrygo Showdown SBC.

Players in your squad from the previously released Premier League TOTS and LaLiga TOTS are sure to provide excellent linking options with Fabhinho and Rodrygo.

The Champions League Final will take place on May 28 and the winner of the match will receive an in-game upgrade of +2. Here’s everything you need to know about the Fabinho & Rodrygo Showdown SBC.

FIFA 22 Showdown Fabinho SBC stats

Fabinho FIFA 22 SBC stats

The base version of Showdown Fabinho is excellent, however, without the +2 upgrade, you may have a hard time justifying the steep price you’ll have to pay. Nonetheless, if you’re flush with coins and fodder, Fabinho is a great addition even at this stage of the game.

Fabinho is one of the best CDMs in the game and if you run a Premier League squad, he’ll be a massive improvement from TOTS Rice, Fernandes, Silva, and Fred. His 94 Standing Tackle and 92 Interceptions will surely result in Fabinho winning many loose balls in the middle of the pitch.

FIFA 22 Showdown Rodrygo SBC stats

Rodrygo FIFA 22 SBC stats

If you completed the Isco SBC, then Rodrygo is a no-brainer. The winger is slightly cheaper than Fabinho but still quite expensive. You’ll certainly be able to justify the price if Rodrygo moves to 94 overall.

5* skill moves and 4* weak foot is a great combination, while 97 Agility, Sprint Speed, and Acceleration make him incredibly quick. He also has the movement stats like 96 Balance and 95 Dribbling to go with that pace.

How to complete FIFA 22 Showdown Fabinho SBC

To complete this SBC players will need to give up four squads: Liverpool, Brazil, Premier League, and Top Form. Costing around 470,000 coins, Fabinho is considered a luxury option at CDM. You’ll have to gather a ton of fodder and coins to complete this FIFA 22 SBC.

Given their prices, most players will have to choose between one or the other, so it really comes down to who you think will win the final. Both cards will feel incredible in-game when boosted to 94, but they’re still great options at 92.

FIFA 22 Team of the Week: TOTW 36 & featured players

EA have announced another FIFA 22 Team of the Week. We’ve got everything you need to know, as well as the full FIFA 22 TOTW 36 lineup.

Published

Chelsea players celebrating in FIFA 22

It’s time for another FIFA 22 Team of the Week. In FIFA 22 TOTW 36, there are some huge names for people to add to their teams and we’ve got all the details listed for you.

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 upcoming TOTS.

One of the mode’s oldest promotions is ‘Team of the Week’, which offers players a weekly batch of upgraded cards, based on real-life player performances the previous week, to help build out their squads.

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

Here are the full updates for FIFA 22’s Team of the Week 36.

FIFA 22 FUT TOTW 36

FIFA 22 striker Erling Haaland

The FIFA 22 TOTW 36 is here and the star power is shining this week with Manchester City and A.C Milan being crowned champions of their leagues on the final day of the season. For those who like to try out new cards and have the funds to do so, FIFA’s TOTW is great.

Check out the full squad for the FIFA 22 TOTW 36 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. Players can’t receive an in-form two weeks in a row.

While an 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.

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.

Each new team is normally Tweeted out around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT with a full look at every upgrade.
