FIFA 22 Rulebreakers: Start time, promo leaks, Halloween cards, and predictions
As the scary season falls across Ultimate Team on the eve of Halloween, the popular FIFA 22 Rulebreakers promo is here, exactly on time, and we’ve got everything you need to know – start date, early FUT leaks, upgrades, and more.
The Halloween holidays are rapidly coming, which means FIFA 22’s next Ultimate Team commercial, “Rulebreakers,” will take on a frightening new tone.
EA SPORTS used to celebrate the end of October (and, of course, Halloween) with the “Ultimate Scream” promotion, which transformed popular FUT stars into horrifying meta creatures with stat adjustments and live upgrades based on the full moon. Last year, though, they shifted their focus to a new event, Rulebreakers, and revamped the promo game.
Players will receive massive stat boosts in one or two front-facing traits as part of the new event, depending on what EA SPORTS wants to improve. This can transform a sluggish striker like Harry Kane into a speed demon.
In 2021, Dexerto expects FIFA 22 to follow the same formula, with slightly over a dozen improvements for FUT’s greatest stars. This is what we know so far.
Rulebreakers FIFA 22 start date
Rulebreakers, the next FIFA 22 event, is approaching. EA SPORTS is ready to release a batch of unique Halloween cards in Ultimate Team on Friday, October 29 to kick-start the spooky-season promotion, according to Dexerto.
At 6 p.m. GMT, we’ll get our first peek at the team. Keep an eye on our Twitter feeds, @DexertoFC and @FutWatch, for the most up-to-date information.
Early Rulebreakers leaks
The suspense continues – as of early October 28, we still haven’t received a definitive answer on the Rulebreakers cards. However, the FUT loading screen has offered a first look at three of them.
A TikTok leak circulating with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Harry Maguire, and Robert Lewandowski doesn’t match the in-game teasers 100 percent.
More teases are planned in the final 24 hours leading up to the broadcast. EA SPORTS is expected to provide Ultimate Team players with a few early signs, such as card ratings, stat increases, and the nationalities of more Rulebreaker upgrades, according to Dexerto.
How do Rulebreaker cards work?
Rulebreakers is a lot easier than the live FUT cards we got recently in the Ones to Watch and Road to the Knockouts events – these special cards will have one stat pushed into the ceiling when they release.
Popular players with less-than-meta cards are frequently turned into usable possibilities by EA SPORTS. As a result, the key increases are frequently Pace and Dribbling.
Predictions for FIFA 22 Rulebreakers
Card-wise, events like Rulebreakers are a little difficult to forecast because anyone EA SPORTS chooses is entirely at their discretion.
In recent years, though, the FIFA publishers have become increasingly repetitious. They usually choose from a pool of well-known players for promotions since they know that all of the big names can boost pack sales. As a result, we can look back at the FIFA 21 event for hints.
Here are the cards from last year’s Rulebreaker set:
- Angel Di Maria — 88
- Romelu Lukaku — 87
- Paul Pogba — 87
- Marco Reus — 87
- Jose Gimenez — 86
- Juan Cuadrado — 84
- Hakan Çalhanoğlu — 83
- Daniel Podence — 83
- Alex Teixeira — 83
- Patrick Van Anholt — 83
- Ike Opara — 82
So there you have it: everything we know about FIFA 22’s Rulebreakers promo’s comeback. Dexerto anticipates a slew of creepy player SBCs, as well as a barrage of packs and objectives during the promotion.
