The FIFA franchise is one of the most popular sports video games series in the world, and we have the FIFA 22 release date covered for you, along with details on the game’s main modes: Ultimate Team, Career, Pro Clubs, Volta, and more.
Not many game franchises can release an extremely popular game every single year like Call of Duty, but FIFA is an exception, as the globally popular game series is one of the most played in the world, and players anxiously await the newest entry every year.
This is no different for FIFA 22 with its upcoming release date. We know many details about EA’s sporting behemoth, and you can find out everything you need to know below.
When is FIFA 22’s release date?
Fans of the high-profile sports franchise will be able to jump into all of the action that the newest game will offer on October 1, 2021.
This means the community still has a few months to wait until they can get their hands on FIFA 22. FIFA is never subjected to delays, so we can expect this release date to be concrete.

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.
So far, the only major thing we know about the game 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.
The official FIFA 22 website also says: “FUT 22 redesigns Division Rivals and FUT Champions to create a more accessible way to test your skills and progress against other players, gives you even more ways to make your club your own with new depths of customisation both on and off the pitch, and introduces FUT Heroes – the return of some of football’s most memorable players.”
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, but this time with a twist.
Again, not much is know about new features concerning FIFA 22’s Career Mode, but the official website does say: “Live out your football dreams in FIFA 22 Career Mode as you create a club and lead them from relegation candidates to global giants, and enjoy an overhauled Player Career experience that gives you more ways to progress, achieve, and immerse yourself in your Pro’s journey through the game.”
Creating a club could be a very interesting proposition indeed. For years, Pro Evolution Soccer has had great success with its Master League Mode that works in a similar fashion to this proposed concept.
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. Whilst we don’t know much, we know that a full reveal is coming.
“With new customisation options to make your club stand out in the stands and on the pitch, a new player growth system that puts you in control of your Virtual Pro’s development, and streamlined social play that makes it easier than ever to find your next game, it’s time to get the squad together for a new season of Pro Clubs,” the FIFA 22 website says.
FIFA 22 Gameplay & 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. 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 is also promising 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 a very exciting time for the community and will no doubt have plenty of entertaining and fond memories for players in 2021 and beyond.

How to play FIFA 22 beta: beta codes, start date, download & more
Fifa 22 is officially on its way, for those who can’t wait for its release, here’s how you can get your hands on a Closed Beta code.
Closed Beta codes for FIFA 22 are officially being released, here’s how you can get your hands on one to experience the game before launch.
FIFA showed off their upcoming installment for the franchise at the EA Play Live event on July 22, getting fans of the game excited for its annual release.
For those who can’t wait for the release date, here’s how you can get a Closed Beta code to experience FIFA 22 early.
How to get FIFA 22 beta codes
To be in contention for a FIFA 22 beta code, you need to be a verified FUT Champions player which can be accomplished by winning at least 27 matches in one weekend of the FUT Champions competition in FIFA 21.
Verified FUT Champions players will automatically be sent codes, but players who are not verified FUT Champion individuals still have the ability to have a chance of getting a code by signing up to receive EA emails.
You can find the process for how to sign up below:
How to sign up for EA emails
- Go to your EA Account Email Preferences.
- From there, check the box to be informed about new EA services and news emails.
- Remember to make sure you’re checking the right email address as well. Then, even if it’s not guaranteed, wait to be granted access.
- If you receive one, check the mode you have been granted access to.
- Load up the code onto your Xbox or PlayStation console.
Once that is done, the waiting game begins, so be sure to keep an eye on your associated email, as that is where your code will be sent when EA begins to start sending out the invites.
When does the beta start?
The previous closed beta started up around June 23, 2021, but was canceled after content creators began to make leaks.
Last year, FIFA’s closed beta ended on September 1, so it is likely that this year’s beta test could follow this same schedule for the latest entry in the fan-favorite franchise.
FIFA 22 beta Download size
Players previously reported that the download size of the FIFA 22 closed beta is 39.067 GB, so players interested in experiencing this test will want to make sure they have around this much space available on their consoles or PC.
So, there you have it. Everything you need to know about the FIFA 22 beta and how to get the codes.
