Game company Electronic Arts has officially announced the release date of upcoming video game FIFA 22 with a new trailer.
This is the first trailer for the game and it features the differences this iteration will have compared to the original. One major difference is the new Hypermotion animation system.
This new animation system has Xsens suits that enable motion capture from 22 professional footballers playing at high-intensity for the first time. The result is high-quality real-human movement data and that how the team members in the game move across there. Almost as realistic as humans.
This system has a cutting-edge proprietary machine learning algorithm that would learn from 8.7 million frames of advanced motion capture. After that, it will write its own new animations in real time to create organic football realism. Again, almost as realistic as real human players playing football.
There are now over 4000 new animations in this game to raise the footballing intensity, responsiveness, and physicality of every player in the game. The Xsen suits make it possible as they capture every touch, tackle, sprint and duel the wearers do.
AI has been improved as well with better understanding on both attacking and defensive formations and movement. This offers a whole new level of tactical realism.
There are new off-ball player animations too and ambient behavior, which brings characters to life. Players will see their character talk, point, and direct each other depending on the action. It is as if the characters have become their human counterparts in the game.
FIFA 22 will launch on October 1, 2021 on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Google Stadia. On new consoles, it will be $70 while old gen will be $60 only. It also has the Ultimate Edition, which has more content to check out like both versions for consoles, FUT Hero Item, 4 Days Early Access, FUT Ones to Watch item, 4600 FIFA Points, and more. It’s $99.99 for this.
