FIFA 22: The long-awaited gameplay expands the career mode
A thousand colors of football
Electronic Arts have unveiled one of FIFA’s 22 innovations, a game mode that fans have been asking the company for years. Now we can create our team within the career mode in the football game, so let’s see the details too!
First, the identity of the team needs to be determined. You have to choose a team name, the league you want to play in, and finally decide which real team to play instead. This is necessary because the number of teams playing in the leagues remains unchanged regardless of the innovation.
You can start as a twentieth-ranked team and fight your way to the forefront, but you can also play against the most prominent champions. You have to specify which team is your rival; you get extra points during matches against him.
Your team is entirely customizable: you can also select the players’ home-and-away jersey, the team’s stadium, logo. You can replace the last two at the beginning of each new season. EA promises there will be a wide variety of styles and variations, so the selection will not seem scarce.
You can also customize the stadium to your style. You can choose the color of the chairs in the building and the auditorium, and you can select the lawn pattern for the track. The mood is up to you, too: goal music, crowd chanting, and outgoing anthems can also be defined. By the way, you can also personalize your stadium for real-life teams as long as it’s not licensed.
When setting your team’s budget, you can decide whether to get into professional football as a poor team, in a tight financial position, or has billions of dollars. There will also be a so-called Manager Rating feature that measures how much confidence the manager has in you as a player. You start on the small bench first, and you have to complete different tasks to grow that confidence.
In addition, the skill tree and perk system will be renewed, but the period spent in the locker room between matches will also be replayed, which will be based on how the team performed in the given half. Overall, we’re looking forward to an exciting innovation that has been around for a popular sports game for a while. You can find all more information about My Team here.
FIFA 22 will be released on October 1, 2021, for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch.
