FIFA 22's offical release date is October 1 2021, but some users will be able to get early access to the new game.

It will be available to those who pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition and even earlier for EA Play members.

FIFA 22 will be available for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Google Stadia and Nintendo Switch. For the second year running, Kylian Mbappé features on the cover.

How can I get early access to FIFA 22?

Members who order FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition through the EA Play subscription will get ten hours of gameplay from Wednesday September 22 until Monday September 27, when it is released to those who pre-ordered.

EA Play is a paid for subscription service that gives members benefits such as early access, free games and discounts. Eager fans can also start playing early, from Monday September 27 with FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition.

There is no free upgrade path for the game between console generations unless you buy the Ultimate Edition, but it is most expensive option so you will still be paying for the privilege.
