A look at the FIFA 22 Ultimate Team revamp

FIFA 22 looks set to incorporate some big changes to its popular Ultimate Team mode.

Earlier this month, it was announced that FUT Heroes would be included in the game mode for the first time.

EA describe the new cards as “items that represent the unforgettable moments that turned them into fan favourites”.

All FUT Heroes have “unique league-specific chemistry which is tied to their specific hero moment”.

Players confirmed so far include Tim Cahill (Premier League), Abedi Pele (Ligue 1), Diego Milito (Serie A) and Fernando Morientes (LaLiga).

What are the other reported new features?

Now, a prominent FUT Twitter account (@FUTZONECENTRAL) has claimed that several more introductions to the mode are on their way.

Amongst them include a new statistic system designed for the Weekend League. Players will reportedly be able to see their clean sheets, the ratio of goals scored/conceded and their win/loss ratio.

According to the same account, there will also be a replay system introduced for all games that a player plays. Currently, only replays for matches involving the top 200 are available.

They also say that the Weekend League qualification system will be revamped.

Currently, players can qualify for the Weekend League by obtaining 2,000 points in a single week. They then exchange those points for entry to the Weekend League prior to the competition kicking off.

Points are earned initially via Division Rivals games, although players can also obtain points by progressing in the Weekend League itself.

Now it seems like qualification could be attainable in a similar form to the Daily Knockout Tournaments that were present back in FIFA 17.

The account says that players will only be able to lose a certain amount of games and have to win a certain amount of games to qualify.

These qualifying matches will reportedly be based on a player’s skill, which is based on Division Rivals records.

FIFA 22 will be released on October 1, and will be available to purchase on next-generation consoles.
