FIFA 22 HyperMotion Technology Presented in Official Reveal Trailer
It’s that time of year again, boys and girls; EA has just released the first FIFA 22 trailer. Reveal Trailer can be found here, and it doesn’t really show much in terms of concrete features. But, one thing has captivated everyone’s attention – FIFA 22 HyperMotion!
FIFA 22 HyperMotion | Key Facts
What is it, which versions will support it, and how much of an impact will it have on FIFA 22 gameplay… that’s what we are here to find out!
Powered by Machine Learning
With the help of Xsens suits, EA was able to record motion capture footage in a real 11v11 high-intensity match. We’re talking about motion capture footage of each touch, spring, duel, shot, and tackle – everything!
This gave EA a ton of data which they fed to a cutting-edge machine learning algorithm. As a result, their FIFA 22 gameplay boasts over 4000 new and fully authentic real-human animations, which are bound to set a new standard in the niche.
But, that’s not all – EA has announced further tactical improvements in the AI department. For instance, players are now able to make up to 6x more decisions per second and are aware of their surroundings all the time. One thing is certain – this AI-powered tech could be a game-changer in the soccer simulations sphere.
You have to admit, HyperMotion technology sounds pretty darn interesting, right?
Improved Tactical AI
FIFA 22 HyperMotion gameplay tech will use raw power from the next-gen consoles to allow in-game players to have a better feel for the game. We’re talking both offensive and defensive roles here, including a better understanding of set pieces, in-box movement, chance creation and overall superior level of tactical realism, never before seen in the FIFA series.
But, this won’t be the case for all version of the game. More on that right below!
No FIFA 22 HyperMotion for PC Version
The game will be available on October 1st on all modern gaming platforms, including Stadia. However, only next-gen consoles, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, and Google’s Stadia cloud gaming platform will support FIFA 22 HyperMotion.
Unfortunately, EA have confirmed that the upgraded version of the game featuring HyperMotion and additional graphical and gameplay improvements won’t be available on PC. We’ve already talked about FIFA 22 destroying its PC fanbase, and now we finally got concrete proof of it. Too bad for Origin players; guess eFootball 22 is going to be the soccer game of choice for PC gamers this year!
Should You Preorder?
FIFA 22 is now available for preorder. There are a few goodies waiting for the preorder enthusiasts. 4,600 FIFA points, a FUT Hero card, a special Ones to Watch player card, and one Team of The Week player card. On top of all that, FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition preorder swill get four days of early access to the game.
But, should you preorder it? Sure, FIFA 22 HyperMotion seems like a solid upgrade for the next-gen consoles, but preordering right now doesn’t make a lot of sense. It’s best to wait a bit longer to see what sort of difference does HyperMotion make.
If you preorder after July 20th (HyperMotion show date), you’ll still get all the goodies you’d get for preordering today, but you’ll have a bunch of extra FIFA 22 HyperMotion info to base your decision around.
If you do end up preordering, keep in mind you will have to splash out a hundred bucks for the next-gen Ultimate Team version. FIFA 22 Standard Edition will set you back for $60 for the current and $70 for the next-gen version.
