FIFA 22- between release date and very promising technical details
The game will be based on HyperMotion technology on next-gen consoles and on Google Stadia, thanks to which Electronic Arts has been able to improve the motion capture technology, used on 22 professional athletes who played at high intensity. Thanks also to EA’s new proprietary machine learning algorithm, the game will take inspiration from over 8.7 million frames of footage taken during real games to generate animations in real time and further increase realism. Of course, the most popular and characteristic modes are back, such as Career, VOLTA FOOTBALL, Pro Clubs and the aforementioned FIFA Ultimate Team.
