FIFA 22: the free upgrade to PS5 and Xbox Series X | S only with the Ultimate Edition (from 99 euros)


Unlike what happened last year with FIFA 21, the Dual Entitlement of FIFA 22, or the possibility of being able to upgrade the PlayStation 4 version to the PS5 version and the Xbox One version to the Xbox Series X | S version for free, is not available for everyone. It will be included only in the FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition, the € 99 digital edition.

At the same time as the official announcement of the man on the cover, again that Martian by Kylian Mbappé, and from the release date, all the details on the game have been made official, as for example the official prices of FIFA 22, increased on PS5 and Xbox Series X | S.

Speaking of this topic, we note the lack of the Dual Entitlement, or the way in which EA calls Smart Delivery. In other words, the possibility of buying the game once and being able to play it indifferently on new and old generation of consoles. If last year it was available to everyone indifferently, this year EA has confirmed that this possibility will be given only to those who buy the 99 euro digital version called FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition.

Everyone else will have to buy a upgrade or directly the nextgen version of the game. It is, therefore, a policy much more similar to that applied by 2K Sports than that professed by Microsoft.

Everyone gets Dual Entitlement with the purchase of FIFA 22, we read on the official website.

Dual Entitlement is only available with the purchase of the FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition. The FIFA 22 Standard Edition does not include Dual Entitlement. This means that if you buy FIFA 22 Standard Edition on PS4 and upgrade to PS5 later, you need to purchase the PS5 version of the game in order to play.

'Being on back-to-back FIFA covers is amazing,' Mbappé said. 'I have a very special relationship with the game and look forward to enjoying FIFA 22 alongside all of you.'

Reveal Trailer

The FIFA 22 announcement trailer focuses on the new HyperMotion technology that the game uses to better capture the sport more authentically through machine learning and other technology magic. Check out the trailer below and read on to learn more about HyperMotion.


This is a new piece of technology that EA Sports developed to help bring the 'most realistic and immersive gameplay experience to life, in every match and across every mode.'

'Powered by HyperMotion, FIFA 22 combines Advanced 11v11 Match Capture and proprietary machine learning technology to deliver the most realistic, fluid, and responsive football experience for next-gen consoles and Stadia, unlocking the raw emotion, passion and physicality of the world's game,' EA said.

As mentioned here, HyperMotion is only available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia.

EA performed motion capture on 22 professional footballers 'playing at high intensity.' On top of this, EA's own machine learning tools are capable of 'learning' from in excess of 8.7 million frames of 'advanced match capture' to create new animations in real time. This will apply to shots, passes, and crosses. Overall, EA says HyperMotion 'transforms how players move on and off the ball.'

'FIFA 22 offers millions of fans around the world a chance to engage with the sport they love in an unprecedented way,' EA Sports FIFA GM Nick Wlodyka said. 'Each player experiences FIFA in their own way but on-pitch gameplay is the unifying constant, so we’re excited to offer deep innovation there. HyperMotion elevates that even further on next-gen consoles and Stadia and completely changes the feel of the game.'


FIFA 22 will have multiple modes, including Career, Volta, Pro Clubs, and FIFA Ultimate Team. In this year's game, EA said players can look forward to 'more consistency and distinct personalities' for goalies, specifically, with the goalkeeper system seeing a 'complete rebuild.'

Career mode, meanwhile, has a new Create a Club feature, while the Volta mode has 'reimagined gameplay' this year. For FIFA Ultimate Team, FIFA 22 has Ultimate Team Heroes this year, which EA says are 'completely new items that represent the stories and glory of cult player and fan favorites.' EA will release more details on FIFA 22 overall this summer.


FIFA 22 has more than 17,000 players and 700 teams in the game, along with 90+ stadiums and more than 30 leagues. The game is the only one to feature the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Europa League, the UEFA Europa Conference League, the Premier League, Bundesliga, and more.
