“We approached the creation of this technology with a scientific approach and are proud that our research and development have allowed us to share this cutting-edge tech with the sport’s global audience,” said David Rutter, head of Global Technology, FIFA. “With over 200 million football matches being watched around the world, we’re continually looking for new ways to thrill our audience.”
Goalkeepers will be able to use “Unprecedented Range of Movements” to gain the upper hand on shots. Goalkeepers can make more saves than ever before.
“Shot Blocking has never felt so real,” said Jimmy McLarnin, lead technical director on FIFA 22. “Through new, more realistic behaviours of the ball, goalkeeper movement and the impact the ball has in different situations we have created more realistic saves, which has resulted in more goals being scored. The blocking of shots has never felt so real, giving goalkeepers more chances to save important goals.”
While winning “The Last Man Standing” is all about timing, players now have an advantage when chasing down loose ball situations. The responsiveness of players as they reach for and recover the ball has been improved.
Players can now activate their animations with a button press, giving them more control over the execution of their skills.
“The most naturally and fluidly animated player movement is what FIFA players have been seeking since I started as a player 20 years ago,” said Aleksandar Katai, lead technical director on FIFA 22. “The HyperMotion feature brings that to life and we’re excited to show it to our fans.”
This new technology will also bring to life the new animations introduced in FIFA 21, where the pitch and ball looked more realistic thanks to graphics and animation.
The four key areas for improvements in FIFA 21 with this new technology are:
• Shots on goal
• Goalkeeper range of movement
• Player movement and animation
• Ball physics.
“We continuously update FIFA with new features and this is no exception,” said Rutter. “We’re taking what we’ve learned from FIFA 21 and are challenging ourselves as a team to develop the next generation of gaming technology.”
FIFA 22 will be available for pre-order from August 21
