I’ve always enjoyed a good soccer video game since I grew up playing soccer on the Commodore Amiga 500. The Amiga had some amazing titles, such as Sensible Soccer (1992) and Goal (1993).

My first meeting with the FIFA franchise was on the Amiga with the Sega Megadrive port of FIFA International Soccer (released in 1993 and on Amiga in 1994). Back then, I preferred Goal, but today the FIFA franchise is my favorite.

FIFA 22 is the latest entry in the long-running and successful FIFA video game franchise. This is the 29th installment in the series, and it was released on October 1, 2021, for the PC, Xbox, Playstation, Switch, and Stadia.

So is FIFA 22 cross-platform?

Unfortunately, FIFA 22 isn’t cross-platform between PC, PlayStation, and Xbox One. However, FIFA 22 is cross-gen through backward compatibility allowing players within the same console platform to play the game together – but only if the next-gen consoles are not running the native version PS5 or Xbox Series X/S version.

FIFA 22 FAQ:

Dribble your way through the defense and get the answer to other common questions about FIFA 22:

​Does FIFA 22 support cross-progression?

FIFA 22 supports cross-progression, but only within the same platform family. This means that your progress and content within FIFA 22 Ultimate Team and in VOLTA FOOTBALL will transfer between PS4 and PS5 and back, or Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S and back.

In other words, FIFA 22 doesn’t support cross-save or cross-progression between consoles and PC and vice versa.

​What is FIFA 22? – A quick overview for new soccer players.

  • Game Developer: EA Vancouver, EA Romania
  • Game Publisher: EA Sports
  • Genre: Sports, soccer

If you’re familiar with the FIFA soccer video game franchise, you know it’s the best soccer game out there on the market today.

Since I played FIFA on PS3, I think it had moments that looked almost photo-realistic. And FIFA 22 looks even better, not at least because the developers have used HyperMotion technology to capture motion data from real-life soccer players playing a full football match.

You should note, though, that you need to own a PS5, Xbox Series X/S, or Stadia to see the realistic movements captured by this technology.

It sucks that you can’t use it on a PC, as most modern gaming PCs can handle it easily.

I think EA should have made it possible to toggle the HyperMotion data on and off from within the game menu so that you can still play the game if your machine can’t handle it. But instead, they excluded it from all PC players.

FIFA 22 has kept some of the story elements from the earlier iteration. Returning players will be excited to hear that FIFA 22 has a story mode known as VOLTA. This is a returning feature from FIFA 20, where players can play a character building a reputation on the street soccer/football circuit.

You’ll experience fun story bits while playing this mode, and you can unlock certain special characters by playing. There are also many customization options to look forward to.
