FIFA 21 is coming towards its expiry date, which means attentions are now turning towards the next EA Sports football release.
FIFA 22 will be arriving this autumn, but when exactly will we be able to get our hands on the next instalment in the footballing franchise?
When Does FIFA 22 Come Out?
The official release date for FIFA 22 has finally been revealed.
Friday, October 1st is the date for your diaries, which sticks with the trend of the title being released in late September/early October.
Pre-orders are now live on each of the platforms which will be releasing the title, you can find out more here.
FIFA 22 Early Access
Whilst the majority of the FIFA community will have to wait until October to get their hands on the new title, a select few will be able to access the game prior to the full launch.
FIFA 22's early access trail will begin on September 22nd, with the lucky recipients able to enjoy up to 10 hours of gameplay.
Those signed up to EA Play will be able to enjoy the early access, which most people spend gaining a headstart on their Ultimate Team.
Ultimate Edition Pre-Order
The only other way to gain access to FIFA 22 prior to October 1st is by pre-ordering the Ultimate Edition of FIFA 22.
The Ultimate Edition is significantly more expensive than the regular edition of the footballing sim, retailing at £89.99.
But there is a host of benefits that come with that premium price tag, including unlimited access to the full game four days ahead of the main release.
