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 actually also on the Amiga with the Sega Megadrive port of FIFA International Soccer (released 1993 and portet to 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? That is, is it possible to crossplay with friends on console if you’re on PC and vice versa?

​What is FIFA 22? – A quick overview.

  • 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 has used HyperMotion technology to capture motion data from real-life soccers 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 really sucks that you can’t use it on PC, as most modern gaming PC are easily capable of handling it.

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