FIFA 22 new update brings huge changes to free kicks, referees and goalkeepers

Published

on

First FIFA 22 update

FIFA 22’s first update is out, and EA SPORTS is already hammering goalkeepers and officials, while amplifying the potency of the game’s already potent free kicks in Ultimate Team and kick-off modes – here’s everything in the October 6 patch notes.

FIFA 22 has been released for a little over a week, and publishers EA SPORTS are ready to make their first major tweaks and improvements to the gameplay of their latest version.

The first and most important is aimed for goalkeepers.

Shot-stoppers have been an early standout in FIFA 22, dominating the Ultimate Team meta. Unlike in previous FUT metas, no single goalie has been a must-pick; regardless of the card players chose to fit into their squads, they have been delivering each and every game.

EA SPORTS has taken steps to “lower the efficiency” of goalkeepers, particularly when it comes to attempts from inside the eighteen-yard box. According to EA, this update will affect all shots taken within 11.27 metres of the goalmouth.

FIFA 22 goalkeepers have received many new “genuine” in-game movements to “improve efficacy” when saving flair shots to counteract these nerfs.

Goalkeepers aren’t the only ones who have been scrutinised by EA in FIFA 22 update #1; referees have also been given a helping of “logic” in the patch.

This contains improved AI interpretation of high-velocity tackles (more fouls) and keeper impacts, but officials will no longer call as many penalties for “reasonably timed slide tackles.”

The most significant change is that they will “no longer call fouls due to gentle touch.”

The final major change in the October 6 patch is connected to free kicks. Dead-ball situations have already been a highlight of many players’ Ultimate Team campaigns, and they’re about to get even better.

In the notes, EA announced that they have now “widened the region where the reticle can be placed during free kicks” to enable more control over spin and shot placement.

Aside from the FIFA 22 gameplay changes, the first patch of the new title cycle includes a slew of bug patches, as well as updates to Ultimate Team, Volta Football, Pro Clubs, Kick Off mode, Career Mode, and a slew of other features.

On October 6, the new FIFA update will be available for all PC versions of the game. As is customary, the patch will be delayed on consoles — including the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X — so that EA SPORTS can iron out any serious issues. It is scheduled to be released on consoles next week.

FIFA 22 update #1 patch notes

Gameplay changes

  • Goalkeepers’ efficiency when diving for top corner shots from inside the penalty box has been reduced.
  • This modification applies only to shots taken within 37 feet/11.27 metres of the goalkeeper.
  • The frequency of player-controlled sliding blocks making contact with a travelling ball has been increased.
  • When defending a counterattack that came from a corner situation, the defensive reasoning for players along the halfway line has been updated.
  • Defenders along the midway line will now try to track the counter-attacking players more closely.
  • Goalkeeper animations have been included that may occur when a keeper attempts to stop a high finesse strike.
  • This adjustment is intended to create more realistic goalie reflexes while also marginally increasing the effectiveness of goalkeepers saving this type of shot.
  • When defending a counterattack that came from a corner situation, the defensive reasoning for players along the halfway line has been updated.
  • Defenders along the midway line will now try to track the counter-attacking player more closely.
  • The frequency of player-controlled sliding blocks making contact with a travelling ball has been increased.
  • The region where the reticle can be positioned during free kicks has been increased in size to allow for more control over spin and overall placement.
  • Player Lock will now be cancelled in Co-Op matches once the Player Locked player makes a pass or their teammate makes a pass to a different player.
  • [Only for PS5] A new Controller Setting has been added to configure the desired Adaptive Trigger Resistance.
  • Improved referee rationale to make the following call:
  • more fouls as a result of high-velocity tackles
  • fewer penalty kicks as a result of well timed slide tackles
  • More fouls in scenarios where a player collides with a goalie who is holding the ball on purpose.
  • Fewer fouls as a result of mild physical contact
  • Throw accuracy and target selection have both improved.

The following concerns were addressed:

  • A late Fake Shot request resulted in a pass on occasion.
  • In rare circumstances, players may unintentionally take a terrible touch.
  • In some cases, the ball carrier might refuse to perform the Feint and Exit Skill Move when asked.
  • When rushing the goalkeeper outside of the penalty box, the keeper may attempt to make an inaccurate save with their hands.
  • When attempting to intercept the ball, the intercepting player may unintentionally take a strong touch, resulting in possession loss.
  • Players with a Skill Move rating of one to three will now perform the Bridge Skill Move instead of no Skill Move when requesting a Skilled Bridge Skill Move.
  • In some cases, the defensive team’s player would stop moving for a brief while after the attacking team accomplished a Lobbed Through Pass.
  • Players receiving the ball from the air were rarely seen running in place before taking control of the ball.
  • In some circumstances, while receiving the ball from the air from behind, the receiving player would not attempt to take possession of the ball while running.
  • In rare circumstances, players may unintentionally take a terrible touch.
  • The Goalkeeper could sometimes slide on the pitch after catching the ball near the goal line and sliding to the ground with it.
  • When a goalie tries to punch the ball after a deflected shot, he or she may instead try to head the ball.
  • If the shot was close to the goalkeeper, the goalkeeper would occasionally not make an attempt to stop the ball.
  • In certain rare cases, the goalkeeper would rise excessively slowly after a violent match.
  • When attempting a diving save, the goalie may descend diagonally rather than laterally.
  • This was a purely visual issue, and resolving it had no effect on goalie performance in these instances.
  • When attempting to move while shielding the ball, the shielding player may lose sight of the ball.
  • A cross near the goal area is not caught by the goalkeeper.
  • When a ball was kicked out of play, the ball was given to the wrong team to resume play.
  • When playing as a locked player and the match finishes in a penalty shootout, the locked player’s Match Rating may decline inadvertently during the shootout.
  • This problem is documented on the EA SPORTS FIFA Tracker at https://trello.com/c/651ZT9ZQ.
  • When skipping a non-playing scene that plays before a goal kick, the input combination may occasionally result in the Come Short or Push Up function being asked.
  • When fouls were committed on a player performing a nutmeg or a Bridge Skill Move, they were not always called.
  • After a well-timed sliding tackle in the penalty box, a penalty kick may have been erroneously awarded.
  • After requesting a Skill Move, an erroneous animation may occur on rare instances.
  • The ball carrier may occasionally dribble in a direction other than the one specified.
  • Occasionally, a player may become stuck in a Strafe Dribble animation for a longer period of time than planned.

A new batch of FIFA 22 Twitch Prime Gaming loot has been announced for November 2021, which means Amazon Prime members will be able to collect a new special FUT pack in-game chock-full of rare players.

Last year, on a month-by-month basis, a number of free packs were made available to members of the game’s community. These, in addition to their Division Rivals and FUT Champions awards, aid in the gathering of a large squad of players, which can be valuable for either playing with or completing SBCs.

The higher the number of cards, the better. For Ultimate Team, this is the typical rule.

FIFA 22 Heroes: Morientes, Dempsey and Cahill are now available

Published

FIFA 22 Heroes

FIFA 22 Heroes introduces a slew of ‘new’ players to Ultimate Team, although these are all very old characters. All of the superstars below are assigned to a certain league, which means they must be placed up next to cards from the same competition for maximum harmony. Scroll down to view thorough biographies of nine elite contenders, as well as the full list of FIFA 22 Heroes.

Mario Gomez (88, Bundesliga)

Gomez, a long-time FIFA favourite who only retired in 2020, returns to the series with a super-powered card commemorating his time with Stuttgart, Bayern Munich, and Wolfsburg. The 6ft 2in target man scored 231 goals in 456 games for his club, and added 31 more in 78 appearances for Germany. If you play FIFA 22 with an all-Bundesliga team, you’ll get a Physicality rating of 90+ and be good for the full season — but at a high beginning cost.

Tim Cahill (85, Premier League)

The box-to-box midfielder has 108 caps for Australia, and his career has taken him to Millwall, New York Red Bulls, Shanghai Shenhua, Hangzhou Greentown, Melbourne City, and Jamshedpur, but FIFA 22 honours his period at Everton. Cahill spent eight years in Merseyside’s blue half, scoring 56 goals in 226 games and earning player of the year honours in 2004-05.

Diego Milito (88, Serie A)

The Argentine’s international achievements pale in comparison to those of his contemporaries on this list, with only 25 games and four goals. His club career, on the other hand, is a different storey. Milito moved to Italy after 34 goals in 137 games for Racing Club, scoring 57 goals in two spells at Genoa and 62 goals in 128 games for Inter Milan. He won both the Serie A and the Champions League while at the San Siro in 2010, and was awarded man of the match in the latter’s final after scoring twice to defeat Bayern Munich.

Jorge Campos (87, Liga BBVA MX)

Mexico’s greatest goalkeeper has to be considered one of the most eccentric net-minders of all time, alongside Bruce Grobbelaar and Rene Higuita – and it’s nice to see his 1990s achievements gain FIFA 22 recognition. Campos sported bright jerseys, made 130 international appearances, and occasionally played up front, scoring 35 goals in the process. UNAM, LA Galaxy, Chicago Fire, and Puebla are among the clubs on his resume.

Robbie Keane (86, Premier League)

Wolves, Coventry City, Leeds United, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, West Ham United, Villa, Celtic: Keane’s lung-busting performances and stunning finishing have made him a fan favourite across the United Kingdom. He’s also quite popular in California, thanks to an 83-goal season with the LA Galaxy. After 146 matches and 68 goals for his country, the brave Irishman retired in 2018 and should be a popular Premier League card in FIFA 22. Will EA, on the other hand, incorporate his signature cartwheel-to-forward-roll goal celebration?

Abedi Pele (89, Ligue 1)

Isn’t that a familiar face? If that’s the case, it’s presumably because Abedi Pele is the father of Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew and Swansea forward Andre Ayew. The former Ghana captain is regarded as one of the best African players of all time, having won the Champions League with Marseille in 1993 after a six-year career with the club during which he scored 23 goals in 112 games. While on loan at Lille, he scored 16 goals in 61 games, and he has also played for Lyon, Torino, and 1860 Munich.

Fernando Morientes (89, La Liga Santander)

The Spaniard’s time at Liverpool won’t be remembered in FIFA 22 – or anywhere else – for long, but it was an outlier in an otherwise stellar career. Morientes won the Champions League three times with Real Madrid, in 1998, 2000, and 2002, and scored 143 goals in 421 games during his career, which also included stops at Zaragoza, Monaco, and Valencia.

Clint Dempsey (85, MLS)

This is a bit of a setback for Fulham supporters. While Demspey’s 50 goals in 189 appearances make him a Craven Cottage icon, FIFA 22 honours his return to the United States in 2013. Following that, he played for the Seattle Sounders and scored 47 goals in 115 games, as well as 57 goals in 141 games for the national team. Demspey and Seattle won the MLS Cup in 2006.

Sami Al-Jaber (86, MBS Pro League)

Al-Jaber was the epitome of a one-club player, appearing for Al-Hilal from 1989 until 2007, with the exception of a four-match loan spell with Wolves in 2000. He scored 204 goals in 376 games for the club where he is still revered, and added 46 more goals in 156 appearances for Saudi Arabia. Al-Jaber played in four World Cups for his country: 1994, 1998, 2002, and 2006. He is now the assistant manager of Scottish club Hearts.

List of FIFA 22 Heroes

As of Wednesday, September 29, every player on the FIFA 22 Heroes list is listed below.

  • Sami Al-Jaber (ST, MBS Pro League) – 86
  • Tim Cahill (ST, Premier League) – 85
  • Jorge Campos (GK, Liga BBVA MX) – 87

FIFA 22 Icons guide: Rooney, Cafu, Casillas, and full FIFA 22 Icons list

FIFA 22 Icons guide

This year, four ‘new’ old names join the FIFA 22 Icons list, including a particular Derby County manager who also happens to be England’s all-time leading goalscorer. The addition of Wayne Rooney, Cafu, Iker Casillas, and Robin van Persie brings the total number of FIFA 22 legends to 105, and we’ve profiled each of them below. The whole FIFA 22 Icons list can be seen further down the page.

FIFA 22 Icons: Cafu (Brazil)

Brazil’s most capped player has played 142 times for his country, seventeen more than fellow FIFA 22 Icon Robert Carlos, who has played 125 times. The battering right-back is the only player in history to have appeared in three World Cup finals in a row, winning in 1994 and 2002 and coming in second in 1998. In Italy, he’s a legend for his dominance with Roma and AC Milan.

FIFA 22 Icons: Iker Casillas (Spain)

This Real Madrid favourite led his country to European Championship gold in 2008 and its first-ever World Cup victory in 2010, keeping five clean sheets in the latter competition. Casillas won the Euros for the second time in 2012, adding to his 167 international caps, five La Liga titles, and three UEFA Champions League championships.

FIFA 22 Icons: Wayne Rooney (England)

As a 77-rated attacking midfielder for Derby County, the long-time Everton and Manchester United fan sneaked into FIFA 21 as a 77-rated attacking midfielder. Rooney, who is now retired (but still manages the Midlands club), receives a significant improvement for FIFA 22, his first year as an Icon. With 53 goals in 120 appearances, Super Wayne is England’s all-time best goalscorer.

FIFA 22 Icons: Robin van Persie (Netherlands)

RVP was a polarising figure in North London after resigning as Arsenal captain to join rivals Manchester United. However, his time at the Emirates remains a highlight of his career. He scored 96 goals in 194 games for Arsenal, as well as 50 goals in 102 appearances for the Dutch national team. However, during his time at United, he won the Premier League in 2012-13.
