It’s that time of the year again when football fans brace themselves for a new season as well as a new FIFA game with updated squads and players. As we approach FIFA 22’s release date, EA Sports has started revealing fresh player ratings for top footballers, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, and Kylian Mbappe.

The player rating reflects various sub-stats such as pace, shooting ability, and physicality, influencing a player’s in-game performance. EA Sports has a dedicated team called “The Ratings Collective,” which works diligently to ensure these ratings are as accurate to the real world as possible.

Aside from this, gameplay is another facet of where EA Sports wants to replicate reality this year. The developer has announced that FIFA 22 will use a new technology called “HyperMotion,” which combines motion capture data and machine learning to create realistic animations. However, surprisingly, this feature is available for everyone except PC gamers.

Importantly, the major game modes, Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Volta Football, and Pro Clubs, have also received some upgrades. These upgrades range from new tactics to in-depth customization. Moreover, this FIFA title is special for Indian gamers as the Hero Indian Super League is making its debut in the series this year.

FIFA 22 comes out later this month, on September 27, for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Stadia. There are two different editions of the game — Ultimate Edition and Standard Edition — that come with varying bonus pre-order content. Also, the Ultimate Edition lets you play the game as early as September 27, whereas the Standard Edition gives you access to the game from October 1 onwards.

Here are the top player ratings revealed so far by EA Sports and their respective football clubs –
