FIFA 22 Halloween Cards: 2021 Event Release Date, Leaks & Predictions For Ultimate Scream/Rulebreakers

Halloween is fast approaching, which means it's time to start looking at what EA Sports may have up their sleeves this year.

The Ultimate Scream promotion had been a staple part of the FIFA calendar each year, until EA threw a curveball and released the Rulebreakers promotion in FIFA 21.

Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, but the rumour mill is rife with predictions as to what we may see in Ultimate Team this year.

Here is everything that we know so far.


Event Release Date & Start Time

The Ones To Watch promotion still has a little life left in it yet, but with Halloween just around the corner, it's safe to assume that it will be the next release.

We envision that the promotion will run for two weeks, beginning on Friday, October 22nd and ending on Friday, November 5th; And as with all events, expect them to begin at 6pm BST.

Whether it will be Ultimate Scream, Rulebreakers or even a brand new event, remains to be seen. But one thing that is for sure, is that it will have a spooky, Halloween themed twist on it.

Event Explained

Recent Halloween promotions have seen stat upgrades that completely revolutionise the playing style of the individuals included.

We saw a huge pace upgrade for Harry Kane and Aymeric Laporte and shooting upgrades to the likes of Douglas Costa and Dries Mertens in the FIFA 21 Rulebreakers promotion.

Meanwhile the Ultimate Scream promotion featured shape-shifted cards that saw permanent upgrades to specific stats. This included a pace-boosted Sergio Aguero and a shooting boost to Lorenzo Insigne in FIFA 20.


Event Predictions

All the signs point towards a unique stat-boosted theme for this years promotion, but the question is, who will feature?

Usually you will see players deemed unusable included in order to make them more appealing to those looking to capitalise on the games meta, strikers with low pace or wingers with poor finishing for example.

Mesut Ozil has been a regular inclusion in the past, and with an underwhelming 80-rated base card this year, looks a strong candidate for a spooky upgrade.

You can expect to see a range of different leagues feature in the promotion too, with players not just from the Premier League, but also, Serie A, Ligue 1, LaLiga and the Bundesliga. Who know's maybe they'll throw in the Eredivisie too.
