Electronic Arts has today introduced EA Sports FIFA 22, featuring next-gen HyperMotion technology. Powered by HyperMotion, FIFA 22 combines Advanced 11v11 Match Capture and proprietary machine learning technology. Through this, EA aims to deliver the most realistic, fluid, and responsive football experience for next-gen consoles and Stadia.
HyperMotion technology enabled the integration of the first-ever motion capture of 22 professional footballers playing at high intensity. Additionally, EA’s proprietary machine-learning algorithm learns from more than 8.7 million frames of advanced match capture. It then writes new animations in real-time to create organic football movement across a variety of interactions on the pitch. Whether it’s a shot, pass, or cross, HyperMotion transforms how players move on and off the ball.

Nick Wlodyka, GM, EA SPORTS FIFA had this to say:
“FIFA 22 offers millions of fans around the world a chance to engage with the sport they love in an unprecedented way. 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”.
The new game also offers deep and innovative features across other parts of gameplay and popular modes including Career Mode, VOLTA FOOTBALL, Pro Clubs and FIFA Ultimate Team. Fans can expect more consistency and distinct personalities between the posts with a complete goalkeeper system rebuild, an all-new Create a Club experience in Career Mode, reimagined gameplay in VOLTA FOOTBALL, and the introduction of FIFA Ultimate Team Heroes, completely new items that represent the stories and glory of cult players and fan favorites. More news on FIFA 22 innovation will follow throughout the summer.
