Latest News - Create A Club Heading To FIFA 22

The Career Mode news is coming thick and fast, and this may be the best of the lot.

For the first time in recent FIFA history, Career Mode users will be able to create their own club to take charge of in FIFA 22.

EA revealed the news in a teaser earlier this week, although they stopped short of providing the finer details into what exactly the Create A Club mode will entail.

One thing that is for sure though, is that we cannot wait to get stuck in!

Alex Scott To Join Commentary Team

Career Mode fanatics will be very familiar with the soothing, Scottish tones of Alan McInally.

The former Celtic and Aston Villa man has been the go-to expert around the grounds for as long as we can remember, but he won't feature in FIFA 22.

EA have instead opted for former Lionesses' favourite Alex Scott as their new voice from around the grounds.

Release Date

FIFA 22 is expected to arrive at some point between the end of September and the beginning of October.

A release date between September 24th and October 8th has been touted, with Career Mode available from launch, so you better start prepping your transfer targets!

Upgrades Coming?

Career Mode on FIFA 21 wasn't bad, but it was somewhat underwhelming.

EA put the majority of their attentions into FIFA Ultimate Team ahead of last years title, which left Career Mode fanatics a little disappointed.

But if the recent rumours are anything to go by, we could expect to see some fairly signifcant changes to the game mode before the launch of FIFA 22.

Could Career Mode be heading back to the top of the FIFA fans to-do-list on launch day?

Online Career Mode

The biggest rumour circulating around the gaming world is the potential for an Online Career Mode.

Yes, you heard that correctly. FIFA 22 could potentially be the first FIFA title in history to allow you to play a Career Mode save online, with your friends.

The rumours began after a job description appeared on EA's site referencing an Online Career Mode, with EA falling short of any further details in that department.

Where the mode will come to fruition remains to be seen, but we're not letting go of this one without a fight!

Career Mode Beta Access

Whether we see an online mode or not, those who gain access to the FIFA 22 Beta will be the first to give Career Mode a spin.

As always there is no way to guarantee yourself a spot on the closed beta, FIFA fans who opt into EA emails will be randomly selected to play the game early.

It's expected that the FIFA 22 Beta will land at some point in late August, with the beta rumoured to have arrived in the PlayStation store already.

Leagues

EA Sports are expected to deliver a minimum of 30 leagues for FIFA 22 users to delve into.

As always, the top four leagues in England will be available, which gives players the chance to pick their minnow and work them all the way to the Champions League.
