FIFA 22 PS4 / PS5 & Xbox One / Xbox Series X differences
Even though the PlayStation5 and Xbox Series X have been out since November 2020, the majority of people are still playing on last generation’s consoles: the PS4 and Xbox One.
Despite this, the PS5 and Xbox Series X are understandably the core focus for FIFA 22 due to their unbelievable power and technical capabilities.
Whilst the PS5 and Xbox Series X will benefit from HyperMotion Technology, faster loading times, and more, don’t expect this for last-gen.
The PS4 and Xbox Series X versions are expected to miss out on several key features that make FIFA 22 worth the upgrade.
The complete FIFA 22 Pitch notes detail every single feature and point out which platforms you’ll be able to enjoy them on.
FIFA 22 Ultimate Team & FUT Heroes
The ever-popular FIFA Ultimate Team mode returns once more to get players playing, packing their favorite players to create the best possible team.
Arguably the biggest announcement so far is that it will feature new FUT Heroes. Intended to celebrate some football greats for their impact on football, lethal forwards such as Mario Gomez and Diego Milito will have special player cards that can be worked into different teams and styles.
EA recently showed their first look at the changes coming to Ultimate Team. Tweaks have been made to how Division Rivals works, with the mode being broken up into seasons as well as the usual weekly competition.
There will now be checkpoints within each rank to stop you from sliding down the standings if you hit a bad patch of form. There’s also the addition of win streaks, which let you climb the leaderboard quicker when you string together a series of wins on the bounce.
FUT Champions has also seen an overhaul. Teams are now entered into a mid-week Play-off stage to earn a place in the Finals at the weekend. Check out our full breakdown of the announcements here.
FIFA 22 Career Mode
If you’re not heavily invested in Ultimate Team, then there’s a good chance you invest a lot of time in FIFA’s storied Career Mode.
Who hasn’t taken a team from League Two and guided them all the way to the upper echelons of European football? Well, this will be possible once again in FIFA 22 Career Mode, but this time with a twist.
Creating a club could be an exciting proposition indeed. Fans have been begging for the feature for years, and this year EA is letting them craft a club from the ground up. Everything from your club’s kits, stadium, and even its principles are in your hands.
Once the cosmetics are sorted, it’s also up to the player to build a squad from scratch. There’s even the option to tweak the team’s age and rating, from a lower-league squad with a lot of promise, or an aging team in need of a rebuild.
Player Career is also getting revamped with new in-game objectives which impact the way your manager views you. The new challenges will also unlock XP, which grants you skill points to drop into the Pro Clubs-style skill tree and unlock brand-new perks.
These perks grant temporary buffs to turn matches on their heads. Some might boost the passing stats of all teammates to unlock stubborn defenses, while others provide shooting bonuses after scoring a goal to help kill the game off.
FIFA 22 Pro Clubs
Often the forgotten and overlooked game mode by EA. Pro Clubs is a fun, social activity that sees multiple players create their own players and build their stats. Friends usually create a club for everyone to join, and you work your way through the ranks.
Fans of the game have been begging EA for years to implement fun, new features to make Pro Clubs fresh and it looks like this might finally be the year the mode lives up to its potential.
Many of the updates that are fleshing out the Player Career mode are making their way into Pro Clubs, most notably the XP system which gives much-needed structure to how Pro’s improve. Perks are also coming to the mode, which provides an extra tactical layer when trying to secure the win.
There’s a much stronger emphasis being placed on customization this year, with fans being able to kit their virtual club out with themes, tifos, and crowd chants.
EA has also taken great steps in diversity by allowing players to create male and female players to play together.
FIFA 22 Gameplay, trailer & HyperMotion
One of the big headlines for FIFA 22 is the fact that this is the first proper FIFA game being made with the PS5 and Xbox Series X at the forefront of the game’s thoughts.
As a result, EA has created the new HyperMotion Technology that seeks to make FIFA 22 feel like the most authentic and immersive football gameplay ever.
Here’s the latest FIFA 22 Gameplay Trailer from EA:
EA also claims that HyperMotion is set to add over 4,000 new animations to the game to make for easier player transitions and seamless football matches.
You can learn more about this exciting new breakthrough via EA’s sit-down discussion and HyperMotion video below.
As well as HyperMotion Technology, EA also promises the following new Gameplay innovations to reshape the way the game is played:
- Full Team Authentic Motion
- Tactical A.I.
- Kinetic Air Battles
- Composed Ball Control
- Player Humanization
- Goalkeeper Rewrite
- True Ball Physics
- Explosive Sprint
We’ll learn even more about all these features as EA continues to roll out more reveal videos showcasing FIFA 22.
The FIFA 22 release date is set to be an exhilarating time for the community and will no doubt have plenty of entertaining and fond memories for players in 2021 and beyond.

FIFA 22 TOTS Token Swaps 2 explained
FIFA 22 TOTS features the fan favorite Token Swaps system, here’s everything you need to know about how it works.
FIFA 22’s TOTS features the Token Swaps system which has been a major feature in FUT promos this year. Here’s everything we know about FIFA 22 TOTS Token Swaps 2 and an explanation of how it works.
For FIFA 22, EA are kicking things up a notch, as a Tokens system features for the first time in the event. First introduced as part of Icon Swaps, Tokens Swaps have played a huge role in FUT this year, including promos like Future Stars and FUT Birthday.
But how do FIFA 22 TOTS Token Swaps work? Here’s everything we know so far.
- FIFA 22 TOTS Token Swaps 2 start date
- What are FIFA 22 TOTS Swaps?
- FIFA 22 TOTS Token Swaps 2 leaked rewards
FIFA 22 TOTS Token Swaps 2 start date
TOTS Token Swaps 2 is set to hit FIFA 22 on May 27 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST. EA already confirmed that the refresh would arrive on May 27, replacing the TOTS Token Swaps 1 in-game
Much like the first batch, it is likely that players will not be able to submit their tokens and receive rewards until a couple of weeks after release. Leakers claim that players will be able to submit tokens from June 10 to June 17.
What are FIFA 22 TOTS Swaps?
The Swaps system asks players to earn Tokens by completing in-game objectives and SBCs, which can then be submitted for rewards. You can choose to save up all of your Tokens for the top prize, or splash them on multiple smaller rewards – the choice is all yours.
Tokens are added almost every day, and while most are easy to spot, some have been known to be smuggled away in one of the individual Marquee Matchup SBCs. We recommend checking FUT every day at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT / 7 PM CET to make sure you see them all.
The second batch is likely to offer 25 tokens to earn in total, with the best reward requiring 22. Keep your eyes peeled, as you can only afford to skip three if you want to scoop the highest prize.
FIFA 22 TOTS Token Swaps 2 leaked rewards
TOTS Swaps 2 rewards give players the opportunity to open packs that guarantee a TOTS from some of the most desirable leagues. There are also some tasty-looking Icon Moments in there for those who want to know what they’re getting before committing.
