What Is Hypermotion Technology In FIFA 22

HyperMotion Technology is EA's way of saying that players will move, react, and emote more naturally in FIFA 22, much like their real-life counterparts.

In the game's reveal trailer, we see a series of top players like cover star Kylian Mbappe wearing new mo-cap tech to convey their movements more realistically.

It's not just on-the-ball action that'll be tweaked, either. EA has noted that players can expect off-the-ball actions and emotion to be dictated by an "unprecedented volume of high-quality, real-human movement data", so you'll see players speak to each other, point, and issue instructions.

EA says that HyperMotion will use machine learning to write "new animations in real time to create organic football movement across a variety of interactions", so players will react like the real thing.
